I recently stayed at the new Beach Club Resort in Parksville and was very impressed. There are a lot of accommodation properties in the area that are really going downhill, so it was wonderful to finally walk into a beautiful guest room with the best ocean view in the area, as the hotel is right on the Parksville beach.
Having travelled all over Vancouver Island and BC, I'm pretty picky about my hotel choices and The Beach Club didn't disappoint. The rooms are large, nicely appointed and have balcony with chairs so you can sit outside and enjoy the view.
I also tried out the Pacific Prime restaurant and had a delicious steak and to die for yam fries. There is also a spa onsite that I will have to try out on my next visit.
The room price is very competative for nice hotels in the area, and this one (unlike some of the other so-called resorts nearby) is worth every penny. I also found their website very helpful in getting directions and ideas for things to do in the area - www.beachclubbc.com.
I'll definetly return again, and am planning on coming back to stay at the Beach Club for Canada Day, as it will be the best view in the area of the beachfront fireworks display.
