We stayed in a King Suite which consisted of two bedrooms (one with king, one with two queens), three bathrooms and a full kitchen. From check in to check out we had excellent service. We used the pool twice and while it's a basic hotel pool, it has ocean views and has a nice hot tub. Our room was decorated nicely with modern colours and appliances. The ensuite in the king room was stunning with a gorgeous tub and separate shower. The bathroom products are Aveda. The hotel is considered quite "green" and we were able to compost and recycle our kitchen waste. The beds were comfortable and fairly firm. The two decks with ocean view were nicely sized with one being a corner unit. There is a restaurant within the hotel and we had a satisfying lunch while there. The service was a little slow, but totally accurate and our waiter was friendly. The hotel is directly on the beach and within a short (7-10 minute) walk from the main city recreation park which includes a water park, ball fields, lacrosse box, tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, playground, concession and gardens. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone interested in either a family vacation or a romantic get away.

Room Tip: Ocean views are well worth the price.

Great hotel on the east coast of Vancouver Island. Nice water view, and within walking distance to restaurants in the area.

There's not much to say about this place really - we stayed for two nights (not consecutively) and had a two bed / two bath beach view suite each time - both were excellent.

They are spacious and were very clean.

The staff were helpful.

If I have one point to make it is around price - they are expensive, but you get what you pay for.

We stayed at the Beach Club for one night, and really is was not long enough. We stayed in an Oceanview studio room. The room was spacious and clean. There were two queen beds that were comfortable. There was also a very small kitchenette area with a sink and fridge (no microwave) that was quite convenient. But enough about the room...

When we walked in the first thing that greeted us was the view. It was ocean. Period. An endless view that I'm sure without the low rain clouds would have also graced us with a small glimpse of the mainland. We sat out on the spacious covered balcony with a bottle of wine, ordered room service and just took it all in. There is a small boardwalk at the back of the hotel that was busy with people walking (even in the rain), but that could not even break the extreme peacefulness.

We thought about visiting the pool, which looked very inviting, but not even that could break us from the spell of that ocean view.

Room Tip: Don't even think about anything but an ocean view room. It is worth every penny.

I recently stayed at this hotel in a 1 bedroom Ocean view room.

As others have noted the front desk staff are great and very friendly. They offered to park our car upon arrival and we were checked in immediatly and shown to our room.

The ocean view was incredible and just as it is shown on their website. The suite was huge and while we were situated just above the restarant with the balcony doors and windows closed it was not loud at all.

The kitchen was fully stocked with equipment and dishs. The coffee was great as was the Numi Tea.

There are two bathrooms in this suite and the ensuite one is huge with a separate bathroom within. The toiletry's are Aveda products which was a nice surprize.

We were there for a wedding and when my elderly dad arrived while he was not staying at the hotel when he went arrived at the hotel and asked where he could park the staff offered to park his car in the underground parking for him.

We only had breakfast in the restaurant and it was great - I had a tomato and spinich benedict and most others had the typical bacon/egg dish. All was enjoyable and delicous. The restaurant staff are great and greeted everyone like friends.

My husband and I loved our stay here - we were glad to have booked a 1 bedroom suite as we invited everyone over on wedding day to gather together and help each other get ready. It was nice to have a big suite to accomodate everyone, make coffee, tea and offer some snacks to eat prior to the big event.

Room Tip: It seems that the best price for a room was through the hotels website (even over the discount given...

I have stayed in Parksville before, but never at the Beach Club. I thought I'd try it out as I was travelling alone and it seemed like a nice place for that....still family friendly, but suitable for the single traveller.

Upon check in, I was warmly greeted and offered free valet parking and assistance with my luggage. My room was perfect....very clean, comfy bed, beautiful view from the balcony with a small table and two chairs. I wandered down to the restaurant later and had a great steak dinner, and was treated like a friend by all the staff.

The boardwalk along the beach is beautiful, a great place to wander and soak in the sea air.

All in all, a wonderful experience!

We stayed the the Beach Club Resort in Parksville, it was a great experience. The front desk staff were extremely freindly and polite. We had a 2 bedroom suite on the 4th floor overlooking the ocean. It was outstanding! The room was beautiful and clean and the view was just amazing! The beds were so confortable and the bathrooms were huge. There is a restuarant on the main floor, the food was good but the service was very slow. The work out room was nice, good size with a good variety of weights and work out machines. My husband and i went for a massage at their spa, it was the best massage I have ever had. Well worth the money! We will definately come back here without hesitation. It was a wonderful experience and a very relaxing holiday.
