“Clean, comfortable, great amenities”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We stayed with a large group and had a 3 bedroom townhouse directly beside the pool and playground (Unit 31). The unit was very clean, fragrance free, well stocked, and very modern. The beds and linens were comfortable, black-out curtains would have been very appreciated, and a/c would improve the experience, but we did get okay sleeps. Our location by the pool was terrific with our kids (4, 7, 11) but did mean we heard all the pool and hot tub noise through to 11/midnight each night. The walk to the beach is a little far, we enjoyed it, but with mobility problems you might want to choose a different resort if you want easier access. The playground is great, and shady with large trees. The communal picnic/bbq area is gravel with a sandy volleyball court. At dinnertime it is in full sun and very hot with no shade to eat dinner. You also could choose to rent bbq's to use at our own patio, and shaded picnic tables are available throughout the resort. The beach was amazing, wonderful sand, clear warm water and perfect for kids as even at high tide you can walk a kilometre with it never getting more than about 2 feet deep. No complaints, overall really wonderful accommodations.

Hello,

We are so happy to hear your large group enjoyed your recent stay with us. It is always great having such a happy group of guests. To help make our guests stays more enjoyable we have put up gazebos over the group BBQ area in order to provide some shade while enjoying dinner in the new area.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and letting us know your thoughts as it does mean a lot to us and we take all suggestions into consideration while trying to improve our guest experience. Hope to see you back soon.

Our family was delighted with our condo. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need and very clean. The bedrooms were spacious and well stocked with extra linens. We were here during a heat wave and, although there was no air conditioning they provided many fans to help cool the rooms down in the evening. The beach access path was too steep for my senior father and for taking a stroller down which was one negative. Overall we were happy and would return.

Enjoyed our clean one bedroom condo. Had a comfortable bed and plenty of linen. Wished that each condo had their own BBQ and the wifi worked better. The private beach was very quiet and beautiful, it is a little bit of a hike up and down the bank to the ocean, not recommended for problems walking.

The Ocean Trails Resort was well appointed, only minutes from the beach, accessed by some steep stairs. The resort offers a swimming pool, a 5 minute walk to the mini golf with 2 courses (Lagoon Golf and Mountain Golf). If you only have time for one, I recommend Mountain Golf, if you get a hole in one on the last hole, you also enjoy a free game. The resort also offers complimentary access to Kim's gym and a tennis court.

We had a two bedroom unit, with a 6 foot bed in the master bedroom, the accommodation was spacious and well-equipped with a washer/dryer. We stayed in unit 48. Staying in the units to the rear of the resort offers more privacy in my view and you have closer access to the beach. Be sure to request a unit with ceiling fans, not all have them and the units are not air-conditioned. It was very hot while we were there and the floor fans provided were not adequate; many windows were sealed, so you didn't have the option to open them. Very poor Wifi connection.

My boyfriend and I rented a 2 bedroom condo on the lower level for 1100/month, which includes internet, cable, local calls, house keeping, pool and hot tube. Super cheap! We stayed here from mid October-end of May.

Staffs were excellent, they accommodated to everything we wanted. Housekeepers and yard maintenance are always working hard, our rooms were spotless and upkeep of the units were immaculate.

We stay on a lower level at an end unit which I really recommend as it was very quite, and with a peekaboo ocean view. (Unit 32)

If you are there during the months of late March-April you will see a lot if wild life from the beach. All the birds migrating back North will stop there and usually during dinner time the birds and seals are feeding.

Our second day on the island (mid October) see saw a pod of orcas from the shores! Keep you eyes up when you're on the beach!

What an an awesome winter we had there, definitely would recommend everyone to winter there if you could!

Wish we could stay for the summer!
We for sure will be back after our travels.

Thanks so much!
Ian and Nary

I rented a one bedroomed unit for a few months during the winter, the rates were excellent and included Internet, TV, a phone for local calls, hydro and gas for the cosy 'log' fire. Basic housekeeping every 2 weeks, a good kitchen and all linens towels etc. Even a washer/dryer tucked away in the bathroom. The Reception, housekeepers and the maintenance staff were all helpful and very pleasant. The hot tub was available during the winter time, and the pool looked as though it would be a fun place to visit in the summer. This resort, situated off the highway, with easy access to Rathtrevor beach, and with a high class restaurant available at a resort just down the road, and the other way a first class 'English style' pub you don't have to go far for some very tasty food.

The three-bedroom unit we rented at Ocean Trails proved to be well above expectation. There were large bedrooms for each of the three couples staying there — and the master suite on the second level was huge. The kitchen is well-equipped and includes a large dining table. A family could stay at the resort for an extended period with no problem. Rathtrevor beach is just a 5-minute walk away, and is one of the nicest beaches on the Island. We were all impressed by the quality finishing of the unit itself, plus the individual outdoor spaces for each unit. It's a great get-away spot.
