Reviews for Marina du Phare de Beloeil
Casual Small Marina was a Nice Stop, 2015-06-04
Captain: , Seattle Wa (200)

We came in to the gas dock to get a pump out and ended up staying there. The owner, Sylvain came down in about 20 minutes after I called him. He was very helpful and we were able to communicate in our mutual poor Spanish. We walked over to the nearby mall and then down to the very French Old Town. We went back for dinner in the dingy. The docks were OK and they have a new pumpout ($25). This really is a river so you must deal with the current. They had no fuel but that was OK with us. They have a bar on the water that wasn't open when we came through. The bathrooms are small but OK. The locals on the dock were friendly. Most peoples English is bad but so is my French so...

I think my ratings are tougher than some peoples. Here are my rating guidelines - - 1 star - Lousy, skip this one- 2 star - Not terrible but we wouldn't come back- 3 star - Quite nice. We liked it overall and would return- 4 star - Great experience including facilities, management and setting- 5 star - Spectacular everything (there aren't many of these - Maybe the megadock in Charleston)



Beloeil Marina - A place to avoid, 2011-09-03
Captain: , jackson, TN (884)

Beloeil: A marina to be avoided:
We made the mistake of staying at Beloeil Marina 34 miles south of Sourel on the Richleiu River. It was not a happy experience.
1. The manager didn%u2019t answer the phone or the radio so we docked at 1300 in what seemed to be a good spot. We had a reservation, but the person on the phone spoke VERY little English and we barely communicated.
2. The manager showed up at 1800 with a translator and informed us we had to move to another spot. He had to unplug another boat to get us an outlet for 30 amp. service. (hope that guy doesn%u2019t have a refrigerator full of food) 50 amp. %u2013 forget it !
3. We get tied up at the end of a very long dock absolutely littered with bird poop. Like an obstacle course to get to the office.
4. The manager, who we now find out from the translator, is also the owner looks like something from skid row. But, he has a tape measure and proceeds to measure the boat coming up with 46%u2019. From where he measured, I know my tape measure shows 43%u2019, but by this point I was too warm under the collar to get it out and prove him wrong. We have probably stayed in 600 marinas in our three years on the water and NEVER have we been tape measured.
5. We don%u2019t get a magnetic key for the heads or main gate, but are shown where one is hidden. We%u2019d have liked to go see the town during the 4 hours of the afternoon waiting for the manager to come to work, but having no key to get back in, we missed that opportunity.
6. We get charged for 46%u2019 + electric + tax for a total of $91.70 to stay in a dump full of bird poop. A bad deal all around.
7. We declined to spend any more money in this town and ate on board. However, the translator (must be on the bistros%u2019 payroll) was pitching four of them really hard. I told him after paying for the dockage, electric, taxes and extra footage, we didn%u2019t have enough money left to go out for dinner. He said %u201Ctoo bad%u201D and gestured with his hands up in what I now deem the French salute.
8. Internet %u2013 Yeah right. In your dreams.
9. Restroom and showers, barely acceptable.
10. Pumpout %u2013 Oui Mousier, but, so sorry, it is broken. Gee, imagine that. Probably just as well, they wanted $30 for a pumpout !
So, the alternative that we should have taken is two free docks in this town %u2013 no services. One on the east bank and one on the west, both much closer to town and the restaurants.
I am tired of being ripped off by mediocre marinas in Quebec, inconsiderate boaters who wake the marinas big time and am glad that tomorrow will be our last night in the land of French Quebec. BTW, we are cancelling our marina reservation for tomorrow and staying on the lock wall.
After a wonderful stay in Kingston, great trip up the Rideau and delightful time in Ottowa (all in Ontario), we feel like we%u2019ve really been had in Quebec at Montreal and our other stops. High prices, high taxes, poor service, less than great food and a distinct prejudice against the English speaking. I%u2019m glad we came to see it all and will be even more glad to leave.
P.S. Canada is, by law, a bilingual country and every providence, except Quebec, have signs and service in both languages. The French in Quebec simply thumb their nose at the law. Absolutley NO signs in English and hard to find many who speak it outside of Montreal. Little wonder that the separatist movement in Quebec is still a source of hate and discontent across the land. As boaters, it is very easy to tell their sentiments, just look at their flags. In Quebec they all fly the French Fluer de Leur. A very small minority also fly the Canadian Maple Leaf. However, despite the language difference, we have yet to find a French Canadian who did not know how to run our credit card %uF04A
