Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Victoria
Well after a very long flight of four phases starting at 3 00 am in Geelong and ending in Victoia British Columbia, Canada at 1.00pm on the same day back in time, we settled into our hotel overlooking the lovely harbour of Victoria. We walked off our jet lag around the harbour and met the fellow travellers later in the evening. We will see if there …
Day 11 continued
Had dinner at the Canoe brew pub in Victoria - great food, pretty good beer.
Checked into the lush Delta Victoria which has great views of Victoria harbor.

My freedom of choice tour in Victoria was Whale Watching on the SpringTide Zodiac - an open-air, skim along the water (waves) rubber-ducky-looking-boat - and where else does one sit but right up the front where you get thrown around a bit more and sprayed with the salty sea water - apparently at one stage, the people on the yacht (the more relaxing …
We then travelled on the coach to the Ferry wharf to travel to Victoria, Vancouver Island on the 'Spirit of Vancouver Island' - then travelling to our hotel, Delta Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa. It was getting late in the afternoon by the time we arrived at our hotel - enough time to have a shower!, take a quick stroll up to Chinatown and get back in …
... Finally you arrive at the James Bay Inn. You drop off your stuff and walk downstairs to find some food in the restaurant. The waitress tells you that you have to wait for 20 minutes so you decide to walk into the city and find The Spaghetti Factory, not a good idea because it looks chock-a-block in there. You have to walk all the way back, so it's like 20-30 minutes later. Again the waitress tells you it's 20 more minutes, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort & Spa
We felt like royalty!
The views were magnificent, the food was excellent and the amenities were outstanding, but what made our stay at the Delta Ocean Pointe unforgettable was the service of the staff. We were treated like VIPs the entire stay; the staff acted as if we were the only guests present and attended to our every need instantly and with great courtesy. We will definitely stay there again and look forward to our next visit with great anticipation!
From the moment we arrived to the time we left, the service was outstanding. The view of the harbor was beautiful. Room was very clean and comfortable. A bottle of wine and chocolates were waiting in our room upon arrival, compliments of the staff, as this was our 25th wedding anniversary trip. We loved everything about this hotel and would recommend it to others and would definitely stay there again.
In 28 years of staying in hotels while on vacation or business throughout Canada and the United States the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa is far ahead of all the rest, it rates a 5 Plus. If you like attentive service and want to feel special this is where you want to stay. We stayed here for 8 nights (April 9-17, 2004). Be sure to ask for a Signature Club Harbour View Room. The extra cost is well worth it. The view is truly awesome. We kept the curtains wide open day and night. Stacey McCall (Chef Concierge) is a true Gem.
When I booked a room at the Ocean Pointe, I received superb service on the phone. I mentioned that it was to surprise my wife on the tenth anniversary of the day I proposed. Upon arrival, we were greeted enthusiastically and our room was perfect! We had a wonderful view of the entire harbor and looked directly across at the Parliment Building, which is lit at night. Sea planes and harbor taxis entertained us for the afternoon, until a bottle of wine and chocolates, compliments of the hotel, arrived for our anniversary. Highest marks, and we will be staying there again.
A lovely property situated on the inner harbour, with close walking distance to the downtown core.
A very well maintained property with excellent, service oriented staff,
who are both relaxed and attentive in their approach. The staff
exceeded my expectations, including the front desk staff, the parking
valets, fitness room attendants, and the cafe servers.
Try to get a room with a water view, it is worth it. Rooms are
relatively large with high ceilings and are nicely appointed. Bathroom
amenities are a bit dull though.
A high recommend, I've stayed at many nice hotels in this charming
Ocean Pointe Spa
Excellant and very relaxing. Staff were very professional
Dog lovers Yeah!
We have stayed at the OPR each time we travel to Victoria and always have a wonderful time there. The rooms are comfy and clean. Th staff is quite friendly and helpful. And they love dogs! There are many places to walk and downtown Victoria is a short walk or little passenger ferry ride. There are two restaurants, one informal the other elegant. Very comfortable bar and outdoor movies during the summer weekends. A great place to stay!
Delta Victoria OPR is beautiful
Gorgeous setting, very well kept, good pool area, fast elevators, easy parking. Just right distance from hustle bustle. Victorian restaurant was a little stiff, and too high priced, but smaller breakfast area was very comfortable and well priced.
This hotel was such a find. We came to this hotel as a part of a week long R&R with our family. It was fantastically relaxing. The pool was very nice, though not as big as the Empress. Lots of kids in the pool, which was expected and OK with us because it was spring break and our kids enjoyed the company of the other kids. In the evening, they had storytime/cookies and milk for the kids. During the day, they had complimentary bottled water and apples for guests. The Boardwalk restaurant was good. Most spectacular though was the view from of Victoria from the restaurant. It was the little touches that made this hotel a favourite with us. We will definitely stay here again, preferring this hotel over the Empress.
What a view!
I stayed at the OPR for a week in early January. The view from the 7th floor outer harbour view room was incredible. The room was well furnished and comfortable. On par with any 4+ star hotel. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to help and please. Cheap high speed Internet ($5.00 Canadian for 12 hours) was a bonus. The OPR is a short walk from downtown Victoria and is located along a great walking trail. (I had planned to stay at the Empress but changed my mind when I saw the OPR!)
