    We booked Wander the resort to spend a day at the beach club. While the view and the amenities were very nice we’re not really convinced that the cost was worth it. We were going to have lunch at this location, but when I saw the plates being served to other guests it just didn’t seem like good value for my money. Perhaps because of the time of the year, there were also a lot of wasps around and it made relaxing quite difficult, and to the point where I needed to get my drink exchanged because a wasp had got into it. When I decided to change into my swimsuit, I made use of their small outdoor cabanas. Unfortunately, one of them couldn’t close because the zipper was broken and the other one had someone’s swimsuit hanging there with unfortunately some female hygiene products on the ground. Hopefully some minor things to fix for next season.

    Food was good. Limited beverage selection, no cocktails. Service was slow and inattentive, especially considering how few guests were at the Beach Club. No showers or running water available to wash off sand. Washrooms are too far away. Beach is advertised as white sand, which it most certainly is not. Live music was enjoyable and day beds were comfortable.

    It would be nice if you could dump some beach sand onto the pebbles to make it feel more beach like especially for the kids. Very rocky. Maybe put a little money into the beach and also put boundary lines for where it’s deeper. We ordered corn and it never came that I had to tell them to cancel it from my bill. We were charged for my sons meal which was included and had to tell our waitress to remove the charge. Lots of foam, you’d think you would have someone to clean it up. Sandbanks beach white sand would be great at Wander resort. Beautiful place though

    My family and I reserved a day beach pass. First impression- the building is gorgeous and excellent staff up front. We ordered lunch- the food was good quality and delicious. Would have loved to have a coffee not in a can. The staff attending to out needs was great up until lunch was served. After this we did not see them and had to chase them for about 20 mins so we could check out. We were told to wait and that they would settle our tab on n the beach, they never came. Found then eating cake and chatting with staff instead. The staff assigned to activities seemed not engaged nor interested in being of help. The beach was very rocky and the sand boggy. Not a place to swim but good for lounging. If you are an overnight guest, there is a pool that looked amazing.

    Enjoyed a very decadent day at the Beach Club. The service was great. And the food wonderful and pleasantly presented. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable day. We also enjoyed live music while sipping rosé. Highly recommend. The Wander offers a very organic, welcoming atmosphere.

    Pros: very friendly service, very beautiful and clean Cons: very basic drink menu for a high end "beach club": no cocktails, everything out of a can/bottle, no coffee/tea despite opening at 9am. Servers lack proper training particularly when serving at a higher end establishment (ex: bottle of bubbly that was ordered ahead was brought open at 10am without asking when we wanted it.

    It was wonderful on the first day. We got there fairly early. However, on the second day their kitchen was backed up and it took close to 2 hours to get our food on the beach. Our waitress basically ignored us for two hours. They weren’t prepared. They were kind enough to give part of our meal for free, though. Also, you aren’t necessarily guaranteed a bed , two loungers and an umbrella. It’s truly first come , first serve. We brought our own water-shoes. They also provide them. The beach is just not as nice as The Sandbanks ( traditional location). It’s filled with rocks, seaweed and little fish. No access to the pool. It’s has a beautiful ambiance and fairly peaceful with kayaks, paddle boards etc. Plus, their team is very outgoing and positive. However, if they’re going to tout themselves as being so “wonderful” with all the magazine articles etc., they should really try to up their game when it comes to service.

    We purchased the day pass for the beach - and it was awesome. Beautiful location and property, excellent service, delicious food, and drinks. It is such an easy way to enjoy the Lake (no schlepping towels and chairs), plus the perk of a full-service bar/kitchen. Our server Grace took incredible care of us and was very kind and fun. We will definitely be back.

    What a gorgeous place to spend the day. The service is top notch and the food is great. There are plenty of seating options along the beach. I’ll absolutely return. The reason why I’m giving the overall experience 4 stars is because when the live music started at 3 it really killed the vibe. Too loud and honestly not that enjoyable. I think softer instrumental music might be more the vibe but I’m only speaking for myself and my friend. Overall though a beautiful place.

    We bought Beach Club passes for one day and we paid in advance. The forecast was not looking good and I had emailed to inquire about a refund. No one got back to me. We went and we managed to spend a couple of hours in the clouds before the rain moved in. Not the value we would have hoped for given the cost. If given the opportunity we would have cancelled to go back another day with better weather. But since no one responded to our email we went rather than risk losing the entire amount we paid. Guests should be aware that the fee paid for the pass does not give you access to the swimming pool. This was not clear to us in advance and we were disappointed, again, especially for the price we paid for such a short visit. The servers did a good job and the food was good too. The seating is comfortable and the beach and view are good. We left before any music was played so we didn’t get to experience that. As other people have commented, guests should be aware that the beach is rocky so water shoes are recommended. Overall this is a lovely place and would be particularly great for overnight guests who can access both the pool and the beach.

    Great spot. Feels like your on a true vacation with beach service and live music. Loungers and umbrellas are amazing. Cabanas could be bigger for the price you pay. Trendy, modern and relaxing.

    We enjoyed the beach pass at Wander the resort. Everything was great my only feedback would be to advise that the beach is rocky so getting on can be a challenge especially for young kids. They should advise that In advance.

    Slice of heaven in Prince Edward County! The staff were extremely friendly, kind and the service was excellent. The food and drink menu pair perfectly together for a delicious dining experience all while enjoying the beautiful view of West Lake from the Beach Club. Highly recommend a girls getaway for the day, a couples retreat or just treat yourself to a relaxing day in a beautiful location!

    Great resort, fantastic hangout on Lake Ontario. Good food, nice service. The only flaw: no hot coffee. We think investing in a coffeemaker would make customers very happy.

    Amazing experience! Food was delicious, ambience was amazing and the seclusion was perfect. Always a wonderful time here! A few kinks here and there as it was only the second day of being opened, but I’m sure as time goes on and everything is set up, it will be even better! The only suggestion would be to play music in the background, and to perhaps clean up the rocks on the beach at the volleyball nets as they were quite painful to step on when running and diving!
