Curious about a getaway from Vancouver to Vancouver Island?
We have been to Victoria dozens of times so this trip, we decided to visit Tofino, Port Alberni, and Parksville instead.
In Parksville, we had the opportunity to stay at the beautiful Beach Club Resort.
The moment we stepped foot in our room, our eyes were drawn to the AMAZING view!! We quickly rushed to the window and then out to the balcony. This view was absolutely mesmerizing. Below us, we could see tourists, locals, dog walkers, and joggers enjoying the promenade as the sun was setting. What better place to watch the sunset, watch the waves, and watch the people than from the comfort of the nice and cozy Beach Club Resort! We’d love to return here in the summer so we could just hang out on the balcony and watch the world pass before our eyes.
The view was our favourite part, however, this was just the cherry on top. The entire place felt so homely with amazing furniture, beautiful paintings, a huge kitchen for Anne to cook in, a dining table for us to dine at, a desk for me to blog at, a super comfy bed for all of us, and even a hot tub in the washroom with robes for us to use the swimming pool. Anne decided to cook since she liked the kitchen so much. She needed a few ingredients and didn’t want to go out to the store. We called the reception and within minutes one of the staff arrived at our door with everything she needed to finish cooking – that’s what I call going above and beyond. Excellent personalized customer service.
We really didn’t want to check out as we absolutely LOVED the Beach Club Resort. However, we had a ferry to catch so we headed to the on-site Pacific Prime Restaurant for the Sunday breakfast. I ordered “The Conductor” (which is A Play on Eggs Tenderloin Rossini) composing of Poached Eggs with Seared Foie Gras, Seared Tenderloin, Local Chanterelle Mushroom, Demi Glace and Hollandaise, Truffle Oil All On Top of a Buttermilk Scone (see picture below)!
I usually try to find something that each hotel could improve on. However, with the Beach Club Resort, I’m trying to think of all the variables from the view, to the facilities, to the restaurant, to the staff, to the price and I really can’t think of any area that the Beach Club could improve on. Have you stayed there before? I would love to hear about your impressions? Were they similar to ours? What did you like the most?

Here is a video review of the Beach Club Resort:
