“Stunning location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

This is a stunning location. From our balcony we watched a sea otter swimming past ans there are amazing views in every direction. The buildings themselves have a slightly retro feel and some might feel that they look dated, but they are clean and well equipped.

The staff were friendly and helpful and did all they could to make our stay a pleasant one. There are plenty of activities but be aware that some of the facilities require taking the free ferry to the company's other resort, Painter's Lodge.

We were there for two very pleasant nights giving us an opportunity to explore the island a little. We had pre-booked a wild life cruise, which would have been great had the weather not been so unpleasant.

Dinner in the restaurant was very acceptable = th menu has a reasonable choice and the food was well presented and tasty.

Thank you for your kind words about our resort. “Stunning” is definitely the perfect word to sum-up our location. Between the beautiful ocean views and all the wildlife that frequents the area you really can’t beat it. I have very high expectations for my staff, so I’m glad to hear you received excellent service during your stay. I’m happy you enjoyed your accommodations and the restaurant, and I look forward to seeing you at the resort again soon.

Sincerely,
Christine Fleming

Stayed 2 nights at April Point. Kind of wished we'd stayed longer, but had other reservations around Vancouver Island the rest of the week. Location is very peaceful and serene. Views are outstanding. We had a VIP Suite (Room 16) on the corner above the restaurant. Views out the windows were breathtaking. I only have two quasi-negative comments: first, when standing at the windows enjoying your view, diners from the restaurant can be seen glancing up at you either through the skylights in the roof or from the patio. A little weird, but not worth fretting. Second, as others have mentioned, there is no air conditioning, so if west-facing as our room was, it can be a bit toasty in the afternoon, but all the more reason to get out and explore the island. Sea life and birds abound, so your camera will be snapping pictures all the time. Given other traveler reviews, we were a little concerned about the restaurant, but I have to say our dining experiences were great. Had one dinner and two breakfasts and never were disappointed. Took the water taxi over to Painter's for our other dinner and enjoyed that meal as well. Take some time and explore the island. There are a great many trails worth wandering. If you are interested in stunning views, try the Chinsese Mountain trail (South peak)...views range from the high peaks of Vancouver Island all the way to the high peaks of mainland BC. Trail is a gut-buster, so be prepared to get in a serious workout, but well worth it. Another great trail is the Surge Narrows trail on the northeast corner of the island. Watching the tide go in or out through this narrow slot is amazing...big rapids. All in all, a fantastic trip and would like to return.

Thank you so much for your review of April Point Resort & Spa. We wish you’d stayed longer too! We loved having you at the resort. Yes, the views from the Resort are truly breathtaking. Even after all the years I’ve worked here I’m still taken aback by the natural beauty that surrounds us. I’m so glad you enjoyed your meals in the dining room. We’ve been working extremely hard this year to make sure the quality of the food and service stays at a very high level. I’m also happy to hear you were able to explore Quadra Island. It’s a wonderful place, full of some amazing scenery and wildlife. I’d recommend taking one of our Wildlife Adventure Tours or Sunset Cruises the next time you’re here so you can experience the amazing sights found throughout Discovery Passage and the surrounding islands. Thank you for the kind words and I look forward to your next visit!

Christine Fleming

We stayed at April Point Resort for two nights and just loved our stay. Cabin 301 is wonderful with a great view. Very clean, and cozy. The balcony was huge and the cabin was perfect for our family of four. The grounds are very well kept. The resort was so accommodating, and helpful! Given it was the long week end and our original plans to stay on Quadra Island were substandard .... April Point Resort was able to find the perfect accommodations for us last minute! We were glad things worked out as they did because we had the opportunity to enjoy April Point Resort! Our family enjoyed the kayaks, the large outdoor checker game, the view of sea planes taking off from the dock, the seals swimming past our cabin, fishing off the dock, watching the eagles soar over head and land in the trees right near our cabin..... and the meals at the restaurant were delicious. Thank you to the staff at the resort for making room for us on such short notice! We hope to make Quadra Island and April Point Resort an annual vacation for our family! Only regret was we did not stay long enough to take the water taxi over to Painter's Lodge.

I’m thrilled to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at April Point Resort & Spa. No need to thank us for finding you accommodation at the last minute. We were happy to have you. It sounds like you got to experiences a little bit of everything, including kayaking, dining and even spotting some wildlife. That’s awesome. If you’re interested in seeing some more of the area I’d recommend taking one of our Wildlife Adventure Tours or Sunset Cruises. They’re a great way to explore Discovery Passage and to get up close to the local wildlife. Thank you so much for the review and I look forward to your next visit.

Skip staying in Campbell River, take the ferry to Quadra Island and enjoy true serenity looking over the Georgia Strait at the Coastal Range. Fishing Lodge motif without the outdated, rundown fishing cabins. Ask for one of the cabins rather than a lodge room, they are modern, well maintained and very comfortable with decks looking out on the strait. Definitely eat at the lodge dining room where we had the staff cook up the Chinook salmon we caught that morning; breakfast or lunch you can watch the seals and porpoises play in the cove under the dining room deck. Our complements as well to the Aveda spa staff on site; great way to finish the day after fishing or kayaking. We plan on coming back to spend more time soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin along the bay and not a room in the lodge.

I’m thrilled to hear you had such a wonderful time at April Point Resort & Spa. I’m so glad you enjoyed your cabin. The newly renovated interior and the spectacular ocean views are combination that can’t be beat! And is there anything more satisfying than eating fresh salmon that you caught that very day? I don’t think so, which is why I love our “Cook Your Own Catch” program. I’m so glad to hear you’re coming back to the resort and I can’t wait to see you again.

We stayed at April Point for two nights for salmon fishing and we had a GREAT time!
The room was spacious, clean and over looking the water but the best part was our fishing experience. Our guide, Bear was super! We ended up with 4 Chinook salmons, one weighed at 24 pounds, two weighed at 9 pounds and one weighed at 8 pounds on our first day fishing. On our second day we didn't catch anything but we saw humpbacks, sea lion and orcas. Amazing!
So worth the waking up in the morning for!!!
We also enjoyed the Sunday Brunch at Painter's Lodge! Great food!
Last but not least, all the staff were just super! Very nice, friendly and helpful! Would definitely come back!

I’m thrilled to hear you had such a great time at April Point Resort & Spa. This is definitely the year to go fishing. Everyone seems to be bringing in loads of fish. Not many get to catch a 24 pounder though, that’s a nice fish! And you saw humpback whales as well? Sounds like you got to experience a bit of everything. Thank you so much for all the compliments. We work extremely hard to make sure all of our guests have the vacation they deserve, so your kind words mean the world to us. I hope to see you back at the resort soon!

We stayed at Painter's Lodge a few days and took the water taxi over to April Point on a whim to rent scooters and decided we needed to stay longer. We were lucky enough to get room 123 with a river view. The room was very clean and spacious, and the staff was helpful in all regards. We rented kayaks twice and truly enjoyed ourselves. We also went on the whale watching trip offered thru the resort and Braden was an amazing tour guide. We had a car with us so we went to "town" for breakfast and shopped for lunch at the Tru Value. Dinners were in the restaurant, where we were quite taken care of by Bill and Jenny and Kris. There are some fun hiking trails, and the farmer's market in town on Sundays is quaint. We had a marvelous time reading in the chairs spread out around the resort, and found that we actually got better wi-fi reception down on the docks. It's easy to lose track of time on Quadra Island so plan on enjoying yourself on "island time."

I’m so happy you enjoyed your time at April Point Resort & Spa. I agree, it’s definitely hard to leave this place! Between the beautiful views, the wildlife, the activities and the relaxed atmosphere, April Point really does make for the perfect getaway location. I’m glad to hear you got to experience one of our whale watching tours. With the resident orcas in the area now it’s the perfect time to see these amazing creatures up close. I’m also pleased you enjoyed your meals in our dining room. The staff and I continue to work hard to deliver guests an amazing dining experience, so I’m glad everything was to your liking. I look forward to your next visit.

We needed a quick Getaway to rejuvenate. April point was just the solution
From the arrival at Painters Lodge to the refreshments there in the lounge, the Taxi ride across
to our chosen destination everything met and exceeded expectations.
We were fortunate to be able to book the Honeymoon Cabin #23. It was just perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone. Perched out on the Point of the Passage the Wildlife was amazing, eagles soaring, Seals frolicking in the bay
The amenities in the complex were fantastic. Contrary to other experiences in the Dining Room our meal met and exceeded expectations, fairly priced and was delicious. I highly recommend the Short Rib as was recommended by our server and he delivered. Our service was outstanding in all aspects of our visit. There were 2 Cruise Ships passing in an stone throw of the resort. We will be returning well before the end of the summer to enjoy the beauty of this West Coast Resort

It sounds like you experienced a little bit of everything, including wildlife, fabulous ocean views and even a couple of cruise ships. I’m also glad you enjoyed your meal in our dining room. I second your recommendation of the Short Rib. It’s delicious! Thank you so much for your review and I look forward to seeing you later this summer!
