Poets Cove
Beautiful resort hotel on Pender Island. We enjoyed the adult pool and view from our room. Delicious breakfast in the restaurant.

Beautiful resort - service could be better
I spent 2 days at Poet's Cove with our family, have been there before and look forward to going back. It is the beauty of the resort and the island itself that makes Poet's Cove a place we will continue to visit. However, I did feel that the level of service has dropped since we visited last year. We stayed in a Villa and the staff helping us get to/from the Villa, including the front desk staff, were fantastic, very friendly and accommodating, but there were several areas that didn't seem up the standards I've seen at the resort in the past: 1) The cleanliness of the room was ok....not great. 2) There didn't seem to be enough staff in the restaurants. 3) The café had limited hours making it difficult to get the supplies we needed when we needed them. In addition, it wasn't clear from the website that the Villa is a 2-level unit with steep stairs. It is not a good choice for someone with movement limitations or disabilities. Overall, though, I would recommend making a trip to Poet's Cove. It is a relaxing, beautiful place to be in an outstanding natural setting with the always gracious Canadian hospitality!

It was low season, therefore they were a little short staffed. However everyone was very nice and did their best to accommodate our needs.

Beautiful Resort, not great housekeeping
No air conditioning in the main building rooms was a bit uncomfortable in the heat wave and we did't get any house-keeping and when we asked about it, the response was- no, too busy today. The shutters in the room were very dust covered and we had minimal towels. This is a beautiful property. We really enjoyed the adult area pool and jacuzzi area and the Spa and steam cave.

Our Trip to Paradise
Our stay at Poet's Cove was amazing. I had never heard or Pender Island or this resort before booking it online. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I wanted to find somewhere special to surprise her. She absolutely fell in love with it right away. We spent our couple of days checking out the lookouts around the North and South Islands, picking shells on the beach and seeing some of the local culture. The people on the island were very friendly. It was very quiet and peaceful and almost everywhere we went to sightsee we were alone. Every view from every corner of the island was different but equally spectacular. We will certainly visit again.
