We had a phenomenal room with phenomenal service. The staff was extremely attentive. The rooms were clean and the view from our ocean front room was exactly what I wished for. We will stay again. We also appreciated the professionalism of the staff during this difficult time with the COVID 19.

We arrived here just before the covid19 warnings were severe. This hotel has taken the upmost care and responsible measures to ensure safety for all the patrons. We were only on qualicum for 3 nights at this hotel but the customer service at the front desk, the room service, the cleanliness, the promptness with requests and just the overall smiles and positivity in such a difficult time for everyone, was impeccable. I am thoroughly impressed with this resort and will definitely return. We had a room on the fourth floor facing ocean front. This was a dream. The full kitchen and, laundry allowed us to stay quarantined as a family here but still enjoy the many beautiful surrounding beaches. This place is a gem Read less

We bumped into a couple who were just leaving after staying for a month. Boardwalk just out front to walk the beach. Friendly check in staff, good food at the restaurant. Other dining choices within walking distance. Read less

Our 3 day stay at the Beach Club Resort in Parksville Getaway Vacation was deluxe. On this getaway we started with a great ferry trip a gorgeous morning crossing to Duke Point.

Our 3 day stay at the Beach Club Resort in Parksville Getaway Vacation was deluxe. On this getaway we started with a great ferry trip a gorgeous morning crossing to Duke Point. California Sea Lions were sighted from the deck in the pass. What a bonus! We then drove the scenic route along #19a to Parksville for a 3 day stay at the Beach Club Resort. It was sensational and very relaxing. The room had everything one could wish for. Loved the large patio and floor to ceiling windows. The view was spectacular. Mother Nature would stay here! Now we were off to the promenade right in front of the resort. One grand walk and a great sea shell walk along the low tide line. The resort fitness studio and pool are first class and very clean. After having a massage, facial and relaxing time spent at the spa, ones soul and spirit were rejuvenated most excellently. Touring the area the Parksville City Beach from here was very enjoyable. Hated to leave but the short drive on scenic19A for a look at Qualicum Beach was fun. The resort is close to most everything but we took advantage of the Prime Restaurants offerings. The food is great home comfort an the patio facing the board walk and ocean is pure bliss. Happy hour is user friendly. The staff, the resort in whole and the way we were treated was as good as it gets. Can't wait to do a return visit. Read less

We stayed last weekend at this lovely property in a one bedroom ocean front suite (808). Lovely room, amazing views. We enjoyed happy hour in the lounge, walked off site to breakfast and walked to beach. We will be back and next time for more than one night!
