We have never been to Parksville and were a little unsure of what to expect. We were blown away. Really easy to find. So much to do... English man Falls, beaches, parks, wildlife recovery centre (only $8 for adults and such a neat place), Coombs market (goats on a roof, 'literally').... I was also surprised to like the beach by the hotel better than Rathtrevor beach. Yes you need to get out there early enough before tide comes back in (8am). It was less busy and had way more sea creatures to discover. But then again we prefer to explore the beach rather than swim. However Rathtrevor beach was great too. It had a huge park for kids and sprinkle park as well as a walkway along the beach. Still really close to resort.
Loved the resort. We had a one bedroom suite. Room 129. We had two adults and 3yr + 10month old. So the separate bedroom was helpful. We had two bathrooms, huge deck, A/C, fully stocked kitchen (dishwasher, washer dryer etc). Impressed with quality of appliances and kitchen wear. Only negatives: Not all rooms have A/C and there isn't daily maid service. But we were told they are in the process of installing more A/C's. So when booking call the resort and ask for A/C and pool or sea view which we did and got. Resort staff were attentive and easily accessible. We will definitely stay again. Such great memories were made on this trip!
