We recently spent 3 nights at Waterview on the Bay for a family wedding. The hotel offers something for everyone. The rooms were spotless, the food sensational, the pool was warm and the beach front was amazing. The owners not only have a knack for customer service - they went over and above to make out stay fabulous! We give this resort 5 stars +. We can't wait to go back!!! Highly recommend this one.

Room Tip: Rooms on top level are newly renovated and upscale if you are looking for the added extras.

We had a blast while attending a wedding at the Waterview Resort. My wife and I stayed on the top floor with a terrific view of the bay and resort. The rooms are nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The pool was amazing and the grounds are well cared for with great attention to detail at the this resort. The venue and the atmosphere for a wedding was fantastic with a beautiful setting down by the water. Also, the wedding meal and the breakfasts were fantastic. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone because our entire group enjoyed their stay and had nothing but positive things to say about the resort and the staff. Basically, it is an awesome package for the price. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Take a top floor room or suite.

We stayed for 2 days, and just wished we had been able to stay a little longer....rooms were spotless and very charming; we stayed on the top floor and just loved the hot tub and fantastic views...Outside there was room for bonfires, volleyball, bocce ball and all sorts of family activities...also a small private beach with a fantastic view of the stars...Very relaxing...
The staff were exceptional; very friendly and helpful...we stayed for Saturday breakfast and Sunday brunch; very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Top floor is newly built and has wonderful ambiance; it also provided more privacy for us (as a coup...

Waterview on the Bay is a small, intimate resort on a beautiful property. Many rooms have been recently renovated, however, the room we stayed in was not (Willie 18). The room smelled musky, had poor lighting and the beds were old and uncomfortable. The only perk to the room, was that it was located right by the pool. Between the window air conditioner and the dehumidifier running, it was noisy and difficult to sleep. I visited a few of my friends' rooms on the mid level and the rooms were very cozy and bright-- these rooms I would recomend. For the price that was charged for the room we stayed in, in comparison with the other rooms I saw of similar size on the mid level, it was not worth the money. Unfortunately the resort was booked, and we could not switch rooms upon arrival. I've stayed in several hotels and motels across canada to compare, and I was greatly not impressed with the room at Waterview on the Bay.
Beach is nice, however could use a good raking to get rid of the weeds.

Room Tip: Do not choose Willie 18

We stayed at waterview in July2011. The location is great and management very friendly. They accommodated our special requests very well and made our stay great. We were surprised to find out that they provide free facility for outdoor BBQ (Grill, Propane, accessories) and bonfire. Rooms are simply decorated but are clean and comfy. Above all, it was a perfect place for a serene vacation.
