My wife and I just returned home after a 2 week vacation celebrating our 20th anniversary, ending at Sparkling Hill Resort. It was our 3rd time there and it was the most relaxing time of our holiday. Being our 20th, it seemed like they rolled out the red carpet, definitely going above and beyond. Three people, in particular, made our stay so amazing: Jana, the general manager, arranged for rose petals and a card on our bed as well as a special dessert at our first dinner. Shelly from Barrique & Java (the wine & coffee bar) was helpful and friendly as usual. It felt like having coffee with a friend. Chris was our server the 2nd night - we put our meal choices in his hands and were not disappointed. Everything was incredible. As well, my wife and I agreed that we both had the best massages ever. Obviously, I highly recommend Sparkling Hill Resort! Thank you so much!

This resort is incredible and a favorite of mine. You can't beat the stunning views and spectacular settings and spa, however the food is a complete disappointment for a resort of this quality. It's not about complaining about the food as the manager suggested on an earlier review, its why should you have to???? This does not make sense, change your menu or change your chef!! We had the bacon wrapped beef tenderloin, which was completely flavourless and had no searing at all on it. The bison dish was dryer than you can describe (did mention this and the manager said they have to cook it so long it becomes dry... HELLO?? It was actually humorous to hear that explanation. We ordered lobster tails which were mushy (did get 1 taken off the bill, but even tho the bison dish was barely touched, could get no money off the manager explained as we had bought it as a 3 course meal). To her credit she did offer to comp our drinks but as we only had 1 diet coke this was not much of a comp for the expensive bison stew meal. I would 100% recommend the resort, which is amazing but I would suggest eating elsewhere if you want food that lives up to the resort!! PS When people take this much time to do reviews, it should force the resort to make changes as well when the food is a consistent disappointment to people staying there.

The resort and spa were great! I love the outdoor pool with the breathtaking views. The only thing that disappointed me was the food selection was limited and it's not that great. But still, I enjoyed my experience and would love to come back.

Our dinner at the peakfine restaurant was not pleasant. The food was quite disappointing and pricey. For the restaurant I would give 1 star. They should hire a better chief. The room was new and clean with beautiful views.

Just returned from a 2 night stay with a friend for a girls getaway. The room was laid out well, clean and comfortable. The Sauna's and Steam rooms are unique and an amazing experience. It was a busy couple days, so we found the pool area always looked in disarray, and there were very limited chairs to sit, as it seemed most people just left their robes and towels draped over them, without actually sitting there. Might be better if there were more places to hang your robes and towels. The pools themselves were a very good temperature, relaxing and clean - the indoor pool even had music underwater. The yoga class was excellent, even for a beginner like me, and the surrounding area's walking/hiking trails have spectacular views. The Spa Services we had seemed to me to be subpar for such a high end resort. The morning breakfast, which was included, was great and had a nice assortment of options. However, we were both extremely disappointed in our evening dinner. The restaurant was quite expensive (costing $160 with a tip), and at that price should have been exceptional, but was, in fact terrible. A glass of wine & 1 Cocktail - nice. The appetizers: The starter salad with mozzarella and candied walnuts, was basic and okay, but the Thai Crab cakes were flavourless, slightly spicy, but quite boring. The Entrees: The Bison Meatloaf was anemic looking and also seemed flavourless, side mashed potatoes and carrots tasted fine, just nothing special. The Trout was cooked well, but the side of Spinach & Tomato was overpowering, soggy and bitter, and the risotto rice cake was gummy, like thick glue, and NOT edible. Neither of us ate much of our meal. The desserts were not memorable. Overall, the meal was unacceptable, and marred our experience. We both agreed we should have gone off resort for the dinner. We did not end up sending food back, as neither us us wanted to disappoint the other by complaining; only to discuss together later.
