Black Rock Oceanfront Resort offers studios and one- and two-bedroom suites, all of which include kitchens, gas fireplaces and complimentary Internet access; bathrooms feature heated floors, deep soaker tubs and separate showers. While Fetch Restaurant is on the premises, travelers warn the menu is limited and rather pricey.

A 21,000-square-foot theater is also found on site, along with the Absolute Spa, which caters to serenity-seekers with a versatile selection of massages, facials and other body treatments.

    Rockwater Secret Cove Resort
    Halfmoon Bay, Sunshine Coast, BC
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 942 reviewsTripAdvisor (942)
    Personal cabins sprawl across the seaside property of Rockwater Secret Cove Resort on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. Among the resort's 38 varied rooms, guests suggest splurging for the Tenthouse suites, which are nestled among trees, overlook the Pacific and accessible by forest boardwalk. Inside you'll find heated floors, deep spa baths, fireplaces and a sense of peaceful, woodland privacy. Activities like kayaking, hiking and mountain biking abound. But remember to break for food; guests generally recommend the West Coast-inspired fare at the on-site restaurant, though some found the food to be somewhat lacking. Spa treatments offer another chance to fully embrace your backwoods experience: Services are offered in open-air or heated tents or in the Spa Cabin during the winter months. Newlyweds recommend the resort's memorable views and attentive staff for quaint, outdoor weddings.
