Having stayed at this resort a few years prior, I returned again. The location is scenic, and the beds are comfortable, but... the food quality was much lower than expected, and dining options are limited. If you are looking for a gourmet experience with healthy eating options, this is not it. Be warned, there are no other food options on South Pender (although the North Island has a few).
Also, if you are looking for a romantic experience, I would recommend booking a villa with private hot tub, as the single main hot tub can get very crowded with family groups; and expect to be covered in pine needles and bits when you step out - perhaps the filters are broken. I recommend that any activities (e.g. kayak rental) be booked well in advance, as the kiosk is not always open.
There has been a change in management at this resort (after it closed down for the winter), and though the new owner is aware of these and other issues, it may take a while before everything returns to the level of luxury you would expect for this hotel. The prices currently do not reflect the value.
