“Best view to wake up to”
Reviewed 20 May 2012 via mobile

We stayed in both levels of a ridge unit for 4 nights on the May long weekend. Our unit was clean, comfortable, and in excellent condition with new furniture and furnishings. Looks like it has been recently updated. The resort was full but very quiet. Kids enjoyed playground and the beach. We walked along the beach to Rathtrevor park several times while kids played with driftwood or dug in the sand. Afternoons we enjoyed some of the areas many attractions like Coombs Market and Qualicum Falls. I recommend Whiskey Creek for their huge ice creams. It was a perfect spot for a relaxing family getaway, there is nothing like a panoramic view of beach, sand and misty mountains to start and end ones day. Will definitely come again.

This is our tenth year coming to Madrona. The views and location cannot be beat. We started coming fir a nice a year weekend and now come twice yearly for a week.

We had a beach townhouse fully equipped with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, fireplace, in suite laundry and beautiful kitchen.

The value for the price is exceptional and the staff accommodating and friendly.

No matter what time if year and no matter the weather, this spot is a little bit of heaven. In my opinion the best in the area.

We stayed at the resort this week. Although it isn't summer, the sun was shining and we enjoyed sitting on the deck off the bedroom. We were protected from the wind and it was warm enough for just a sweater. With the tide so far out out, the backdrop of snow covered mountains and bright blue sky, and the ocean, it was one of the prettiest views we have ever seen. The entire beach may have had all of 5 people on it! The townhouse accommodation was right on the beach. There are other units on top of the property for a high outlook but we enjoyed being on the beach. The unit had a full kitchen with dishwasher. It was very clean and was nicely furnished. We like the nice variety of day hikes in the Parksville area. Top Bridge Regional Park is a short walk from the resort. A great 'quiet' holiday retreat in the winter/spring

Room Tip: Beach level units are spacious. We stayed in #5 and it was very modern and comfortable.

My daughter and I go for a girls' retreat here every year. we like to spend time reading, sketching and having nice talks by the fire. The location is perfect- right on the beach and the units are meticulously maintained. The staff is friendly and unobtrusive. Tigh Na Mara Resort is next door and we head there to spend a day at the wonderful Grotto Spa and eat at their excellent restaurant. We'll be back next year!

I have been going to Madrona for a "Girls Getaway" weekend for more than 15 years and always had the most wonderful time. We go in winter - the off season - where we get three nights for the price of two for a fully kitted out cabin on the beach. It's just perfect for a 2-3 day getaway: kitchen, 2 full bathrooms and bedrooms, comfy living room with fireplace. And the ocean at your feet...

It's the most peaceful place ever, with an ocean walk to Rathtrevor Beach beckoning no matter what the weather. The staff are always courteous, helpful and available if needed. But because everything's always taken care of and the place is so clean and well stocked, we've seldom had need to contact the front desk.

Love Madrona!

Room Tip: There are 8-10 self contained units right on the water - the premium way to go and all equally well...

We stayed in a beach unit a few meters from the start of the beach. It was really incredible to be that close to the ocean particulary at high tide. Reservations, check in and departure all went very well. We needed a few extra things for our grandchild and they were readily available. The unit was clean , up to date and had everything we needed for a great stay.

We had a lovely three-night stay here last week. Located in Parksville's "Resort Row" alongside many pricier options, this place offers great value and a very pleasant experience. Our quarters featured a postcard view straight out across the water. There's easy access to the beach down a walkway at the rear. The room itself was easy to feel right at home with, featuring a fireplace, large dining table and a kitchen fully appointed with all the implements and dishware we needed - plus a dishwasher.

Staff were friendly and helpful. When we asked the manager for a breakfast place in town, she offered what turned out to be a great suggestion (Lefty's). We'd never have found it otherwise.

It may not have the flashy amenities no doubt offered by some of the other places, but we didn't miss having a restaurant, pool, spa or the like. We came to relax and enjoy the beach, and watch the stars, and this was a great place to do that!

All in all, highly recommended!
