After years of travelling from hotel to hotel with my husband, I consider myself a pretty good judge of travel accommodations. I'm very picky about housekeeping and customer service issues. I'm hard to please, just ask my husband!
I'm incredibly surprised by some of the reviews for Oceanside, as after four years of visits here, several times a year I have yet to experience any of the issues some previous reviewers have cited. In fact, we consider Oceanside our home during our visits in Powell River. So much so, that after many visits this was our only choice of venue when we got married last year.
We had an EXCEPTIONAL experience - the staff worked day and night to have everything perfect for our special weekend - they accommodated every one of our whims and desires and even brought us a special gift back from their personal trip to Thailand, which we loved as an addition to our party! We filled every nook and cranny on the resort they had available to us and EACH AND EVERY one of our guests continues to tell us what a great time they had during our wedding weekend. So much so that our one year anniversary party this year turned into a five cabin extravaganza - now it's not our little secret anymore!
All the staff and local residents make us feel like family. It's a GREAT venue for kids, as they can never get bored with miles of beach and well equipped playground to keep them busy. We've attempted to find something in the same price range with similar amenities closer to home so we could get this kind of experience more often and NOTHING compares. Similarly outfitted venues in other areas are priced at least $100-$200 more per night.
I'd say if you choose to listen to some of the angrier reviews you'd be missing out on a really wonderful experience. Your choice though I guess, just more dates for us to be there ;)
