Located on Parksville Beach, voted the favorite family-friendly beach in Canada, the Beach Club Resort is a choice location for access to sand and water play. The resort offers studio suites, but families may want to spring for the one-bedroom suite with a kitchen that includes a gas fireplace, double sofa-bed, king bed in the separate bedroom, and kitchenware for up to eight. For larger families, the resort has two-bedroom penthouse suites, as well as connecting studio and one-bedroom suites. Playpen cribs are available on request. The onsite restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner and includes a kids’ menu. Be sure to ask about available rentals with outdoor outfitters, including kayaks, mountain bikes, kite boards and more.

My husband and I stayed for one night in October. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was amazing...like a small apartment and very clean and the view was exceptional. Very relaxing! Will definitely come back again!

We stay regularly for both pleasure and business at this hotel. Our most recent stays were September 04 - one bedroom oceanfront suite and October 16 - Tower studio room. The oceanfront rooms are great for indoor / outdoor living and make one feel at home by the beach and boardwalk areas. We love having drinks out on the deck or relaxing by the fireplace. When we are leaving on a European trip or my wife is leaving for her work, we stay here to be close enough to the Nanaimo airport for early flights. It is also convenient for Nanaimo shopping trips. Depending on what we are doing (pleasure / business / time of day / seasons) we choose a one bedroom open front or a tower studio room and enjoy them both. The hotel is always very clean and the staff are all so nice to deal with. The restaurant is very good and very convenient for breakfast.
