Parkside Hotel & Spa

This resort is located in the heart of downtown Victoria and has been consistently voted amongst the best family-friendly resorts to stay at in Victoria. What’s great is that the rooms are suites, so you have your own kitchens. This can be really convenient when staying with little ones. With proximity to your attractions, apartment-style living, and an indoor pool.

Who doesn’t want to stay at a bright and funky coloured hotel full of cheer. The hotel has a “Scooby-Doo” vibe with vans, colourful walls and even rotary phones in rooms. There is an indoor pool with “zedinator” waterslide, restaurant, an arcade, as well as free bike rentals all on site. There are two locations on the island, in Victoria and Tofino.

A gorgeous resort right on the beachfront with views of the Pacific ocean. There are family-specific accommodations and rooms to make you more comfortable, depending on how much space you need.

Right on the waterfront of one of B.C.’s most beautiful beaches and tidepools, this resort makes for easy access to this natural waterpark. There is also an indoor pool and hot tub. The hotel and the beach have a slurry of activities all summer long, but if you know Parksville it will be hard to tear them away from that area. The restaurant also caters to families and has a full children’s menu.
