April Point Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Quathiaski Cove
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Three nights at April Point was not enough! The resort was situated in an idillic cove, with lots of wildlife and even a rare "transient" pod appeared while we were there! The little house, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, big private deck, on the water was a perfect retreat for two couples. Lots to explore and enjoy in this stunning setting. Quadra is an amazing little Island and we'll be back when we need some R&R! !

Room Tip: Can't recall if there's a fitness centre.

I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay. Yes, Quadra Island is a unique and wonderful place, perfect for anyone looking for a little R&R. And in case you’re wondering, there is a fitness centre located at Painter’s Lodge, which is just a free water taxi ride away. April Point guests have access to all the amenities at Painter’s Lodge as well. I look forward to welcoming you again soon.

What a location - would be hard to beat anywhere. Our suite (room 201) was first floor with beautiful views over the water. It had a lovely large sitting room (bigger than the lodges) with a large bedroom, double queen beds, and an excellent bathroom. Bed linen was very good, towels lovely and soft, bathroom was very well equipped, and very up to date fittings. The accommodation was excellent and could not be faulted. Not so the restaurant. Only had one evening meal there with 3 friends. Out of 5 meals, we had to send 3 back as totally inedible (pork tenderloin which was so tough you could not cut it - was it over-microwaved? - don't know but seemed so). The 4th meal was completely cold - not surprising as had to wait an inordinately long time for the pork. The waitress did apologise for the wait and said that they had run out of the tenderloin and had to get some more out. Hence my thoughts on microwave. One of the worst meals I have experienced and would suggest replacing the chef before next season. The waitress, however, handled the situation very well. A shame that such a wonderful place had to be a total let down by this one aspect.

Room Tip: The suite we had (room 21) seemed to have larger accommodation than the lodges.

This is a good hotel in a fabulous location. It seemed a bit dated and could use some reno's to upgrade the rooms a bit.

Having the free shuttle over to Painter's Lodge is a great bonus. We managed to have a great visit to their facilities which seem to be in better shape than April Points.

We had a good dinner with very tasty menu as the restaurant was very good with a fantastic view.

Whether you know BC or not this really is a wonderful setting. Rooms, suites, cabins by the Inland Passage (views over to Campbell River). We had 2 cabins (Nos 21 and 22) with clear, near views of the sea. Lovely 'duplex' rooms (a queen room and en suite at the back of the duplex and a good sized lounge and large TV at the front, overlooking the sea. This place is a must. We found the food a) pricey and b) the service was a little haphazard - but then we were days from the close of the season. Very regular water taxis link April Point with their sister hotel (Painter's Lodge) on the mainland and all facilities are shared (pools, spas etc). Yes, we've all agreed - this is a place to come back to. Finally, a day trip by Aboriginal Journey Tours is a complete must!!! A full day out, fantastic guides, and bears, orca whales, shoals of porpoises and dolphins...plus a number of Bald headed eagles. Sublime and a complete BC experience.

Room Tip: Cabins 21 and 22 (DUPLEXES)facing the sea

Recently stayed for four nights and enjoyed it all. Room was comfortable with separate bedroom and living area and partial sea view. Staff were all very helpful and food was delicious. Quadra Island is a lovely place to explore, even in the rain!

The pod of 50 dolphins did it for me. We were eating dinner and looked out to see many, maybe 50, bobbing fins out in the strait. The next night on a boat shuttle to Painters Point across the strait in Campbell River we go some shots of three Orcas. We got lucky on both occasions, as these sightings happen only once a week or every other week. The Quadra Island Fair happened to be on the weekend we stayed, with a world class Doggie Dash, and the Campbell River museum had some nice First People artifacts. Great to watch the nearly constant activity at the dock as the fishermen and whale watchers came and went. A peaceful place where you can choose an activity level that suits. Some said their beds were a bit hard, but ours was great.

Room Tip: I liked the rooms on the dock side of the complex for quiet and a view of the other islands.

What a wonderful place! Stayed for 4 nights, end of August. Could not fault it. Fantastic location, great room 201 just sitting on the deck outside our room, watching the boats come & go, fishermen bringing home their catch. It was a great relaxing holiday, just sorry it was not longer!
Staff were great, nothing was too much trouble, quick to respond to our requests.
Food in the resturant was excellent
A special thanks to Laura our server in the resturant and Juanita the housemaid. Both always smiling and eager to please.
Would strongly recommend April Point to all who want a 'get away from it all' holiday.
