4. The Fairmont Empress (Pool)

You may feel as though you are welcome guests at a castle when staying at the lovely Fairmont Empress.

Like all Fairmont properties, this hotel does an exceptional job of catering to families with babysitting services, special kids’ activities, pint-sized robes, a kids menu (including a special prince and princess tea service), and a lovely indoor heated pool.

If you are looking for more of a Victoria family resort experience, this property is a good choice. It offers modern harbour view rooms, and great amenities including a complimentary health club, indoor swimming pool, and tennis courts. They make a special effort to welcome families traveling with small children with a kids check-in desk, evening fireside storytime with milk and cookies, a bag of goodies upon check-in, cribs and high chairs, and a children’s menu in the restaurant.

6. Oak Bay Beach Hotel and Spa (Pool)

Although this hotel is about a 10 minute drive from the main Victoria harbour, in the seaside enclave of Oak Bay, it is worth the extra travel time. The property has lovely ocean front mineral pools and a spa to enjoy, yoga classes, plush robes (for both kids and parents), a convenient stress-free family dining area and a kids’ menu. It definitely ranks among the best family resorts in Victoria.  Read reviews and check rates.

Update May 2019: Unfortunately, this property has recently made a change and their pools are now adult only (16 years+). They do, however, offer complimentary passes to a community pool nearby.

    Your readers should know that the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and Spa no longer allows kids younger than 16 in the pool area. The hotel offers vouchers to a local rec center, but the family swim times at the center look pretty limited.

      Hello Jessica,
      Thank you so much for updating me on this and I am very sorry if it caused you (and your family) any inconvenience or disappointment. I have just spoken to the hotel and it seems they changed the policy in April. The pools aside, I hope you enjoyed your time in Victoria.
      Warm Regards,
