Fabulous property in a beautiful setting
We attended a wedding that was held at The Cove Resort. What a wonderful weekend we all enjoyed. The staff work so hard to make sure all your needs are met. So many amenities and we all had so much fun.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights last week. We were very impressed with all aspects. Staff were superb on reception and the restaurant. The rooms were fantastic - we had a suite. Great views of the lake and mountains. Everything was clean. The suite was well equipped with cooking, washing facilities as well as a large TV and DVD player. WiFi was good. We stopped in the resturant for breakfast one morning and an evening meal the next day - all was good. We never got to use other facilities like the hot tub or pool - but they are there if required. Would love to return at some point

Hidden Gem
Wonderful resort with stunnjng views of Okanagan Lake. Close to wineries, and the best place to stop on the way to the Rockies. I even saw a bear! Had a lovely meal in the restaurant. Highly recommended!

Best weekend ever
We stayed at The Cove with a group of 12 girls, and from the very start, the staff at The Cove were an absolute dream to work with. Booking with Kimberly Jackson was trouble free, quick, and friendly. I can't thank you enough Kim. When we checked in, Becca was our hero. Every single request we had was met with big smiley, friendly faces, and our stay was very welcoming and comforting. We had the best time ever and we can't thank you enough!

Spring break at The Cove
We had a fabulous stay at The Cove. The Lakeview room was amazing. The room was very clean & cozy - the kitchen is a great addition. It felt almost like home! We enjoyed our morning coffee out on the balcony/deck overlooking the lake. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to returning for our wedding in August!

My favourite hotel
Awesome place. Would definitely recommend. The staff are lovely, highly personable, informative and helpful. The unit was equipped with a full kitchen including dishwasher, full fridge/stove and wine fridge. Great stay. And the pillows are the best.

Yoga Retreat - amazing!
We stayed at The Cove for a yoga retreat and can't say enough about The Cove. It had all we wanted - a luxury spa, hot tub, two bedrooms, a lovely view of the lake and all the things you want in an upscale condo.

Lovely Resort on the Lake
Great resort for families. On the lake, close to amenities & wineries, and 2 pools for the kids. Staff were very pleasant & helpful, kitchens were well stocked & we would definitely return in the future. 

- Deb

Amazing getaway!!
Lovely location beautiful pool area and friendly staff! Couldn’t have asked for a better stay!! Went out of their way to make our stay perfect! Nice view of the lake and big condos! Loved the balcony!

Excellent Family Vacation Spot!!
The Cove met and exceeded all of our expectations. Our suite was very spacious, clean, modern, and well equipped with all of the amenities we needed. The pools were spectacular as were the rest of the amenities in the facility. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I would highly recommend this to anyone and we will most certainly be returning for our next family vacation to the Okanagan.

- Garrett

Great accommodation with everything you would want
Spent the weekend in a two-bedroom lake view suite. Very impressed with the service and the facilities. Check in was fast and friendly, we were given a suite on the top floor. The room was more than expected with everything one could imagine including in suite laundry... the suite itself was well laid out with tons of room including an office and a loft. The resort has a great restaurant [Bonfire Restaurant] which we visited for breakfast both days and dinner on one night. A full-service spa, lots of outdoor facilities (we did not use because it is winter) and a hot tub also are available. Overall a great experience from check in to check out. This well seasoned traveler is happy to recommend The Cove to anyone planning a stay in the Okanagan, you won’t be disappointed.

Family vacation trip
Amazing pool and waterslide for kids! Very family friendly environment. We got a nice lake view with our garden view room. Our room is tidy and clean. The second bedroom is big enough to fit in the crib for our baby. We will definitely stay there again next time. 

- Elsa

Best location in West Kelowna!
The Cove has everything you could possibly want and is close to so many activities! Most other rental properties don't have a restaurant on site with room service available, a spa, boat rentals, and I highly recommend you request a lakefront unit to take advantage of the beautiful views! 

- Gary

Beautiful Resort
This is a fabulous place to stay; great for kids. Nice amenities and a spa onsite. The rooms have full kitchens, the proximity to the lake is perfect and most rooms have a lakeview. If you don't want to cook, order out! 

- Elaine

Amazing place next to lake, best views
This West Kelowna suite hotel is a piece of paradise in the Okanagan Valley next to the lake. Very modern and worth every penny. The views are stunning. The walking path in front takes you to the Gellaty family nut farm or left to the beach. Rent a boat or a paddle board right out front. The gentlemen running the water sports [LakeSurf Okanagan] is very nice. The pool and slide kept the kids entertained. The pool is heated and very nice. BBQ's are located next to pool and easy to use. At night fire pit next to waterfront made a nice group meeting place. Restaurant is middle of the row. Very nice serving staff but food is average. I would highly recommend The Cove.

Hidden gem
This is truly a hidden gem. Recently one of our staff mentioned we should try this hotel as we were coming in to West Kelowna for some meetings. As soon as we saw the rooms, we couldn't believe it - full condo suites! The value is fantastic! Having said that, one may think just because it's good value that it makes it an excellent choice - no. The thoughtful touches the staff add to this place makes the difference. From the welcome card and voicemail they left us when we arrived, to the staff recognizing you as you return to the hotel. This staff understands how to make you welcome and at home. The Bonfire Restaurant is amazing. The food is simply amazing! I have never had a bad meal here, ever. The staff really are super helpful, and understand how to serve without being too bothersome, as I've found in other restaurants. The head Chef here has really created a menu and culinary team that will prove to be the place to go to for breakfast, lunch or dinner lakeside.

They have hot tub, outdoor pool and gym here as well. If you have a boat, no problem. They have a marina you could dock your boat.

This spot is truly a gem. I highly recommend this property to everyone.

Jewel on the Lake
The Cove is quickly becoming my favourite Kelowna retreat. The staff is very friendly, and the views spectacular. I can't wait to get back again! Much more reasonably prices than others and with comparable facilities. 

- Tracy

A fantastic very walkable area and dog friendly place. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. We would recommend this place if asked by friends or family and we look forward to our next stay in the summer. 

- Richie

Beautifully appointed and exceptional treatment
This well exceeded our expectations and we look forward to staying at The Cove many times in the future. It is the perfect location. It was clean and perfect for the occasion. We only wish we had more time to stay at The Cove.

Great Family Vacation
Excellent resort! Extremely clean and the staff is so friendly. The pool is very clean and well maintained. The waterslide is perfect for kids of all ages. We were here for a week and we never had issues finding a spot at the pool or beach. The beach is also clean and well maintained. We booked massages and they were great for relaxation if you are looking for something more you may want to go elsewhere. The spa was very relaxing, and the staff and masseuses were wonderful. 

- Erin

A Summer Fave
We love this place. Have been coming every summer for maybe 9 years (sometimes multiple times a summer). With kids you can not beat it. They love the slide, beach, pools. Full kitchen and laundry, great patios with views. We requested a specific room to be close to our friends and they accommodated our request. Beds are very comfortable. Close to great wineries and everything you may need. Marina is right there to rent a boat or seeds or paddle boards. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent family vacation!
The Cove Lakeside Resort was an amazing vacation for our family. We rarely get away and this place was beautiful and very inviting. It is rare that we can find a place for our family of 5 that is so spacious. Tons of amenities, right on the water and the kids loved the pool. Super friendly staff and if we needed something we had it in 10 minutes to our room. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!

Beautiful Hotel in a Beautiful Location!
Loved everything! The room, location, food, and staff were all perfect. The two bedroom suite we stayed in was so much better than the pictures showed it as. It was spacious and well laid out and had everything we needed. Our 4 year old loved the pool and water slide (as did we). The food in their restaurant was a little pricey but it was so good it was well worth it. The staff is absolutely fantastic. Very friendly and happy to help whenever we needed it. Would highly recommend!

West Kelowna Perfect Staycation
This resort has it all! Beach, Spa, Marina with rentals, Restaurant, Nice Rooms. Great Location. A real Hidden Gem. Great Breakfasts Brunch's and Dinners. You can pull up your boat and the staff will help tie it up then head in for a bite and a sip. Highly recommended.

Very Good

Great Family Retreat
Stayed in a two-bedroom unit with my family. The room was great, lots of space for everyone. The property is well maintained and the rooms are clean. There is plenty to do on the property with a nice pool (two actually), spa, private movie theatre you can book, and a marina right on site. We will definitely be returning next year.

Would definitely recommend it to my family or friends, beautiful location and the room was clean and the view was amazing. The front desk staff was also very friendly and helpful, food at the restaurant was great too! No complaints at all.

Our Go-To Spot
We came to The Cove for our wedding anniversary and a birthday celebration for the week in April. The location of this resort is beautiful. Right on the lake, close to the boardwalk to walk the lakeshore road with our dog, walk the adjoining nut tree orchard, far enough away from town to be quiet, yet minutes away by car. Close to some of the major wineries. The resort is spotless, beautiful suites, and the staff in all areas that we came across so friendly and helpful. It will be our "Go to" spot when we head to the Okanagan Valley! As well one very large "PLUS" in our books, it is pet friendly! Yeah, our dog came with us on our anniversary week.

Mini moon
A surprise minimoon for my husband on our way home from getting married! The Cove completely exceeded our expectations! Very accommodating when our flights were delayed. We fully enjoyed our few quiet days together to wind down before returning to work. Very much looking forward to our next stay!

Extended Our Stay
I went there with my family and 2 other friends with their families: we were planning to stay just one night but we couldn’t leave the day after, we had to spend one more night.

- Khaled M

Beautiful and Contemporary
In April my brother and sister and I traveled to Kelowna to spend a long weekend at The Cove for my sister’s birthday celebration. The accommodations were beautiful, contemporary and fresh, nestled in the most incredible private spot on the lake. The grounds meandering paths lead past the pool to the waters edge and beyond to the historical nut farm which provided such a great backdrop for photos. We had most of our evening meals right there in the dining room with the incredible staff even creating a special birthday dessert! Daytime excursions found us travelling only minutes in each direction to visit wineries, shopping, the casino and the suspension bridges. We had a fabulous time and hope to make this a yearly event!
