Beach Club Resort - Bellstar Hotels & Resorts
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Parksville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Our stay here at the Beach Club was nice and relaxing. The rooms and views were great. The bedrooms were spacious and clean. It is a great location only being steps away from the beach and a short drive to the outdoor market in Coombs. The building looked extremely nice. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and were eager to inform us of what the resort had to offer. We would definitely stay here again.

Dear Brad L,

Thank you for taking the time to put into words your experience with us here at The Beach Club Resort. Special thanks as well for your recommendation of our resort by stating that you would definitely stay with us again. Parksville is definitely a prime location convenient to all areas of Central and North Vancouver Island and amazes me why not more people know about our city. Maybe that's part of the charm of the area, that it truly is understated and warrants the personal experience. I'm glad that you did and we were able to share with you why we love it here in Parksville. See you again soon as I'm sure there were more activities to do than you had time.

This is a beautiful resort and an absolutely excellent staff and service. We would recommend this resort to everyone and will definitely return for a stay again. An amazing ocean view. Our room was a suite and was full equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We are very happy we chose this resort for our visit.

The room is awesome. Open, airy and large. The hotel is fairly new and very clean.
The view is excellent from our unit and we enjoyed watching the beach ( mud flat style with a large tide, mountains as a backdrop, prettier than this description sounds). Walkers, Kids and dogs enjoyed the beach very much and the happy sounds of children playing at the park next door add to the atmosphere.

Most hotel services are good so far but when it comes to concierge services the hotel really has little help to offer. Everyone is super nice and wants to help but they have not matured to the point where they have relationships with local vendors and this shows when you ask. Not bad .. just young. Any question out of the ordinary is answered using google.

The location is central but extremely heavy auto traffic and low speed limits on the single main artery make travel times long. Driving up from Victoria one is left wondering how the island could possibly support so many car dealerships. This may be the single biggest detraction from this location. one star subtracted for traffic.

The hotel drops another star simply because the internet service is incredibly frustrating. The wireless is currently free ... but today wireless is on the same level as a TV in the room.. would you rent from a hotel without a TV in the room? perhaps... but not at resort prices.
Internet in my room would connect 100% of the time .... but it would only work 50% of the time. Sometimes I would get an IP that works (10.xxxx) the other half I would get an IP that didn't work ( 169.xxx) I have a lot of experience with tech. Beach Club -- here is your chance. Show this review to your IT contractor and tell them to fix it.

This is a great place to just relax. quiet and low key.

fix the internet and I will bump my rating up.

Local sites : beach, whales (2+ hrs away), hiking( try englishmen falls), wine tasting, shopping

Room Tip: our room was a suite on the corner with ocean view. outstanding room.

Dear Figment42,

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience with us here at The Beach Club Resort. It was fantastic to read that you loved our spacious rooms, our cleanliness throughout the resort, our fabulous views and the majority of our services throughout the resort. Rest assured we are working towards developing our concierge knowledge with our new team members as we ready ourselves for the summer season. With regards to our complimentary high speed internet, we fully agree that in today's world internet is on par with other expected amenities within a hotel guestroom. We are currently working through with our internet provider to troubleshoot why a handful of our guests are experiencing the phenomena that you described whereas the majority experience a seamless connection. We definitely hope to have this rectified before your next visit and at that time will look forward to earning a 5 star review from you, see you soon!

We had an exceptional stay at The Beach Club Resort and I look forward to our next opportunity to perch above the Parksville bay from beside a cozy gas fire. We love the ambiance and will definitely be back ASAP.

I am very impressed with this hotel. Our room was very clean and the view was amazing. We ate breakfast,lunch and dinner in the restaurant and sat for the evening in the lounge. Breakfast and lunch service wasn't up to par...I had to get up to get my own napkins and cutlery after our food arrived at the table. We were outside and I had to head to the bar to get what I needed. This was an $80.00 lunch so better service needs to happen. Similar thing at breakfast and just not too attentive. However our dinner service made up for it and the lovely evening we had in the lounge afterwards was so relaxing. I wish I was still there and I'm definitely going back.

We had not planned this stay and it was a last minute booking. Every aspect of our stay was wonderful, especially sitting outside having dinner the first night watching kids then a Boxer dog skim boarding on a beach pool. Our suite was huge and had every amenity. Service is great, the food is wonderful, only peeve is that the in-room coffee is not great, but they gave us free coffee from the restaurant each morning to make up for it!

Dear NellyBell55,

Thank you for taking the time in providing us a fabulous recount of your experience here at The Beach Club Resort. It was great to read that you thoroughly enjoyed our fabulous suites, the food our chef and his team creates at our Pacific Prime Restaurant & Lounge and of course our fantastic service which nearly all of our guests rave about. My apologies for our in-room coffee which we are currently using the Spirit Bear brand but am glad you loved our Lavazza coffee which we serve in our restaurant. We look forward to seeing you back at The Beach Club Resort soon.

We found the bed too hard, didn't sleep well at all, otherwise a nice place to stay albeit somewhat pricey. The food at the restaurant was excellent but again on the high side. In room coffee provided but not as good a walking down to the restaurant and buying a takeout cup.

Dear Robert D,

Thank you for your insight into your stay with us at The Beach Club Resort. I gathered from your review that there were certain aspects which truly wowed you whilst you stayed with us such as our prime location on Parksville's sandy beach, the quality of our food in our Pacific Prime Restaurant & Lounge as well as the cleanliness and service throughout our resort. We stock our rooms with Spirit Bear Coffee which is one of the world's finest organic coffees brewed in British Columbia. We appreciate that every guest is different and so as to provide a choice for coffee drinkers we recently chose another line of coffee namely Lavazza, an Italian coffee for our restaurant and have since received rave reviews of both our lines of coffee. I'm glad you thoroughly enjoyed our coffee and appreciated the choice. We hope to see you back soon especially since Victoria is only 2 hours away.
