Rockwater Secret Cove Resort was a very relaxing get away. We had 7 days in the area, we spent the first 3 in Vancouver, a day of ambling about and 3 days on the Sunshine Coast. The views from the hotel were amazing. We stayed in the main building by the pool, I'd recommend a tent if you can get... More

Loved our stay in the Tent House Suite. Beautiful spot for a getaway. We enjoyed feeling close to nature while still having access to all sorts of amenities. Would definitely go back for another visit!

I picked the Rockwater due to it having couples massages, and also its great website that made it look extremely luxurious, and expected a pampered and Zen like atmosphere. We arrived at the front desk and it was chaotic with an ongoing wedding setup, but what I assume was the manager lead us to the massuses for our couples massage... More

My new husband and I went here for the first two days of our honeymoon and it was amazing. We ate every meal we could on our private porch in our tenthouse suite (Number 56 was the perfect tent). The food was delicious, the room service was great. We didn't want to leave. The bath is to die for and... More

Went for a wedding, the hotel is very expesive for what u get,perhaps the cottages or tents ar better. We had no room cleaning on day two which would have been nice, at $400 a night. My deposit was lost which was quite a financial shock. Shop around!!!

Overall good experience. There were a few lights that needed to be replaced in our tenthouse, which we let staff know about on two occasions but they were never replaced during our two night stay. My fiancé forgot his toothbrush and the charge for a personal kit is $1.75 ...for the cost per night, I think rockwater can afford to... More

We recently spent a couple of pleasant days at Rockwater, staying in one of the single cabins. Rockwater is on stunning, well-maintained grounds, with lots of room to explore the shore or sit gazing out to sea. The staff was all great. The small cabins are obviously old, but have been refurbished, allowing for a tight but adequate bathroom with... More

We loved the tent house suite. From the moment we got in, it was clean and cool and had everything we needed. The deck was perfect to sit out on and have a coffee during the day. Hearing the ocean at night was awesome. I really enjoyed the pool, it wasn't very busy and we got a chair each day.... More

The resort is beautiful but it is trying to cater to too many different audiences. On one hand, you have loved up couples, and on the other, young families and yappy dogs. The staff was often inattentive, especially in the restaurant and front desk. Restaurant food was quite good, especially breakfast, but again, the wait staff were often disorganized. The... More
