Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We rented a 3 bedroom unit that was perfect for our needs. The staff we all very welcoming and accommodating. Excellent amenities available, pool, hot tub, restaurant, parking. My only complaint would be that you cannot know the exact layout and bed configuration of the unit until arrival. I would stay again without hesitation.

We stayed 2 nights at the Cove and it was nice. I would say it was overpriced though. The room was nice and spacious. King bed was not very comfortable and the doors on master bedroom did not lock which isn’t great when you want privacy

Resort location and spa was good but would not agree that this is a luxury resort. Lots of pool chairs and nice big umbrellas. Rooms are spacious and quiet. Advertising should state that suites are privately owned and the quality is different depending on what owners are willing to supply. In our case we were very disappointed

Dear val612016, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback from your recent stay with us. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our convenient lakefront location and relaxed with the services of the Spa. We take great pride in the level of satisfaction our guests have when staying with us and are sorry to hear there were opportunities for your stay. While some of the suites may be decorated slightly different, all of the features of the suites (ie: full-service kitchen space, beds and bedding, luxurious robes, bathroom amenities, spacious living areas, balcony/patio, etc...) are standard to each suite. Again, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and we hope that you consider us for your next stay in the Okanagan. Kind regards, The Cove Lakeside Resort Team

Our three bedroom suite had worn out beds, carpet in desperate need of cleaning/replacing, bathroom towels torn and frayed, dining room chairs so worn we placed seat cushions or pillows on them so your tailbone wasn’t contacting the chair frame. Thermostat would not regulate the temperature properly, it was all ON or OFF. Balcony decking was filthy, stained with grease, and needed to be swept. One of the electrical outlets in the kitchen completely inoperative. One of the two lobby elevators inoperative during our 7 day stay in mid August, so you waited around a lot. Escapes me the prices this places charges, there are much better/modern accommodations in Kelowna for better value. I would not recommend this property to a friend or family.

Dear Mark T, Thank you for your review of The Cove Lakeside Resort. We typically pride ourselves on the level of satisfaction our guests have while staying in one of our spacious 3 bedroom suites as the suites are usually well appointed with clean and comfortable features. We're surprised to hear your feedback posted on TripAdvisor as when you had connected with our Front Desk team during your stay, our understanding was that everything was going well in your suite. Given your comments, we understand that a return visit will most likely not occur but should you reconsider, we would happily welcome you back. Kind regards, The Cove Lakeside Resort Team

Good spot for summer family getaway. Close to lake and amenities. Best suited for younger kids as pool is small, we had teens and other than rental jet skis not much else for them. Grounds are great, pool needs a refresh. Room was over parking lot wouldn’t call that mountain view

Dear Mattparilla77, We thank you for taking the time on making a review of our resort. We are pleased that our location had met your expectations and accommodational needs. Summer season really tends to become so busy and our room availability is slim for a room move for us to give our guest a better experience. We would like to invite you again in the future for us to give you that room view experience. Have a wonderful day. Warm Regards, The Cove Resort Team

Old hotel trying to look new. Spacious units with tiny bathroom not suitable for 2 people or older people who need to step into the bathtub to shower. Unbelievably, a restaurant on premises that is not associated with the hotel so; no breakfast service, no room service, no beverage service at the pool and restaurant charges need to be paid for at the restaurant instead of charging to the room. So if you are at the pool and want a glass of water, you need to go back to the front desk and get a bottle. Or to the restaurant with your credit card. No staff at the pool to collect used towels or abandoned glasses creates a dismal situation by midday. Brunch was offered on the weekend. They opened at 11:00 and when we showed up, were told we needed a reservation and they couldn't take us because the kitchen was short staffed. We insisted and they took us. It was very good. However, dinner was inedible due to how heavily salted the food was. The staff is untrained and unconcerned. I can't believe we paid so much to stay there. What a mistake. And to add insult to injury we were billed an additional charge for a "marketing fee" as well as the daily resort fee. I can't believe I made such a mistake and stayed there.

Dear Sepennal, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on TripAdvisor. We're surprised to read your comments as we typically pride ourselves on the level of satisfaction our guests experience while staying with us and are sorry this was not the case for your stay. We try our best to inform our guests by posting the hours of the restaurant on our website and are sorry you were not able to view this prior to your stay with us. We're a little confused but your comments about the pool area as during the summer season, our pool area is staffed with an attendant to assist, tidy and we provided complimentary bottled water for our guests to rehydrate in the hot summer sun. The Destination Marketing Fee (3%) is collected by hotels in Kelowna and forwarded to Tourism Kelowna which is the Destination Marketing Organization for the region. The charge is included under “Fees & Taxes” when we quote guest rates. While we do understand our guests have options of where to stay in Kelowna, we hope to have another opportunity to welcome you back so that we may show you a better experience in the future. Kind regards, The Cove Lakeside Resort Team

We had exceptional service from pre arrival to our checkout. The resort is full of amenities and although the rooms are dated in looks, it is well maintained and very clean. We would stay again. Peak season can be $$$. We have two kids and they wanted to come back (especially for the water slide)!

Gorgeous views, nice, spacious rooms, and good amenities in a relatively private location. So that is lovely. But 3 fire alarms in 24 hours, not due to fires but malfunctions, ( with one at 3 am and one at 5 am) doesn't lead to confidence in the systems and maintenance. Add to that one elevator down for maintenance and a charcuterie board at the restaurant that took 45+ minutes (with no explanation and only the waitress apology), and I would say they aren't operating very well. Nice place, nice location, tough to stay there.

Dear Chris_the_beekeeper, Thank you for your feedback on TripAdvisor. We were surprised to read about your concerns on-line as we had hoped to have connected directly with all guests who were impacted by the alarms during their stay. While this is a very rare occurrence for our property, we would hope that you could appreciate the fire life safety system doing what it's intended, alerting occupants to a concern. That said, we acknowledge that the evening’s disturbances were concerning and are truly sorry this occurred. Please rest assured that our fire safety mechanical company was on property in the morning to correct the system so all guests could continue their stay in comfort. Since receiving your feedback our leadership team has been able to connect with you and it's fantastic to hear that, despite the challenges you faced, you are still willing to return to stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back to show you a better experience in the future. Kind regards, The Cove Lakeside Resort Team
