Sublime sunsets and "life enhancing" experience - Stephen from Newcastle, England

Stephen D from Newcastle, United Kingdom writes that his family had the "time of their lives".

"As part of our trip from the UK we had booked a 2 bedroom family cabin on the beach, there were six of us in total. The accommodation was great. We all had the best of times. It must be said the views are outstanding, the beach is beautiful, the sunsets sublime and the whole experience is life enhancing. The cabin we had was great, fully equipped to meet all needs and a delight to chill out, get a great nights rest, sit and have a beer while you watch the surf rolling in. The Ocean Village will live long in our memories as one of our great family holidays. Thanks for making our trip the 'time of our life'.""

"The real thing is as good as the photos" -- Margo from San Francisco

Margo F from San Francisco said that "the real thing is as good as the photos" about her stay with her husband for their anniversary in September. 

"My husband and I are staying at Ocean Village now, celebrating our first anniversary. If you are looking for the Ritz, this isn't your jam. But, if you are looking for spacious, newly renovated, rustic cabins, built in an adorable style, and sitting directly on the beach, then book now. We are staying in a renovated upper studio, which is absolutely lovely and perfect for two. The staff has been helpful and sweet. They even left us a card and a bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate. Moreover, little extras, like on-site laundry, a heated pool and spa, and a BBQ area make this a location to which we would readily return. On the one hand, I can't help but give a shout out to this great hotel. On the other hand, I almost hate to share this relatively well-kept hideaway."

"Great beach for the family" -- Jeremy from Kamloops, BC

Jeremy F from Kamloops called Ocean Village a "West Coast paradise".

"The atmosphere at the resort is relaxing with lots of activities to keep you busy if you wish. The resorts is on a great beach for the family. Kids can play on the beach and in the water or on the huge amount of green space around the resort. The cabins are nicely renovated and equipped with everything needed to have a comfortable retreat with the family or couples. We have been there as a couple and now as a new family. Either way this resort has been great, we will keep coming back year after year!!"
