The Resort is consistantly well maintained. The staff are helpful and efficient. The tide was up very high. Watching the waves crash on the rocks was amazing. I love spending time with my family here every year. It's a tradition.

My daughter and I enjoyed the perfect weekend getaway at this wonderful resort. From the balcony of our Lighthouse Suite, we could watch the surfers on Cox Bay while having morning coffee and later, the sunset.

Great accommodation. Beautiful view from our room, of the ocean and high waves, surfers. Very quiet and relaxing. Definitely the resort to stay at in Tofino. All units have kitchenettes. Co-op store in Tofino is a great store to shop at and the prices are very comparable to Vancouver Superstore prices.

Had another great stay in a lodge suite. Great walks on the beach, fabulous sunsets and wonderful relaxation in front of the fireplace. Appreciated the dining recommendations from staff for some tasty meal. Full coffee service is a lovely addition.

We stayed here on the recommendation of my mother in law. It is worth the windy narrow 2 hr drive from Nanaimo! When we got there it was gorgeous and I didn't want to ever leave. The resort is great and the beach house we stayed in was beautiful. We were so pleased overall with our stay!

We recently stayed 4 nights here. The accommodation options were perfect, we loved having a kitchen, the price was right on. Plus, they do not charge too much more for pets which made it so easy to bring our dog. The location on the beach is perfect, and the amenities are just right - movies and popcorn, some food options,...

We stayed for 3 nights, totally enjoyed it! Rooms are large with anything you will need in the kitchen. King size, firm beds, very comfortable, great linens. We plan to return next year. The nicest place we have stayed in Tofino.

My fifth visit. It will be an annual event as long as I can afford it. A special place with plans to double in size. I fear what expansion will do to the experience. As it is, it is a place with a family atmosphere which may be lost with size.

We love this place, tucked in a corner of Cox Bay. Such friendly people, great views of the beach, happy and energetic dogs. Well equipped kitchen, and we found the little market shop just 4 min down the road by the Wildside this visit, with heavenly muffins and good coffee for breakfast

relaxed and comfortable, wonderful views, considering it was spring break and there were lots of kids around it was still quiet most of the time! Great to have s'mores available every night, the two young helpers were especially friendly! great views of the ocean from lighthouse suites. bring a blu-ray player if you want to watch blu ray movies!!
