We won 2 nights in a charity auction. We had a nice room with a west facing balcony. The first night's sunset was beautiful. The bed was comfortable. We found the lighting in the bathroom odd as the switch turned on all areas at once. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool.

Scott Y, Manager at Poets Cove Resort & Spa, responded to this review

Thank you for the review Mary. All of our rooms are west facing, so every night you may watch the sunset over the ocean and distant islands. We will be sure to look into the light switch. Very happy to hear you enjoyed the pool and hot tub, we hope you got to try all of them! Please stay with...

We spent Easter weekend there for a family wedding. Resort offers a shuttle service for people that don't take their cars across on the ferry, and the only glitch of the weekend is they "forgot" we booked the shuttle on the day we arrived, so we had to call and wait 30 minutes to get picked up. Aside from that,...

Thank you for the review Bruce. Everyone here at Poets had an excellent time hosting the wedding, such a lovely couple and amazing guests! We are sorry that the shuttle was late picking you up. We have looked into and resolved this technical glitch to insure it does not happen to another guest. We are always happy to rectify any...

I am a producer with an event and marketing agency based​ in Vancouver, BC, and was lucky enough to create an event at Poet's Cove developing a brand experience for an international client.

I stayed at Poets Cove Resort for a friend's wedding last September and found it the perfect mix of casual and ceremony. Everybody was staying at the hotel for a couple of days and could come and go throughout the day, doing their own thing, and then each evening the whole party could easily come together for an event related...

Stayed in the Lodge and the waterfront view was amazing. I wouldn't highly recommend booking a package as our BC Ferry's travel and access to the Eucalyptus cave at spa was included. The adults only pool is lovely for evening swims. Poets Cove Resort & Spa is a perfect weekend getaway.

We stayed in a cottage and it was lovely. For the first 4 days we had a wonderful housekeeper named Ella who would leave notes and ask us if we needed anything.

All in all, the resort is very well-built, solid and beautiful. The cottages are quaint and equipped. Little unfinished details were left unnoticed like not one full length mirror, no makeup mirror, no dressers in bedrooms to put your unpacked your clothes, only one night table on the king sized bed. No room service even though there are two restaurants...

Good afternoon Irini Thank you for the review. I would be more than happy to look into your advice on the full length mirrors and makeup mirrors in our rooms.
