“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The hotel is right on the beach- fantastic ground level room if you have kids as they can play outside easily. Rooms were fine but all worth the price just for location. Only had trouble with WiFi. Would book again!

First off this hotel is pretty expensive for the room that you receive. The room that we had was a king bed regular room with ocean view. Just so you know they all have ocean view and a beautiful one at that. There just not special in any way but very clean. Staff was great and so was the efficiency of check in and out. Restaurant was also nice with good food. If your into long walks on a great beach this is the place for you. Just a lot of loot in prime time.

Room Tip: Our room was beside the hot tub room so a little noisy till 10pm. Don't take this room. 310 I th...

We have just spent a weekend at the Resort of Dreams! Our family couldn't get enough of the Beach, View, Uncompromising Customer Service and can only say WOW!!!
This is a must see Resort...The kids call it Hawaii Canada. The location is only 10 minutes from downtown Tofino, but, set in a remote beach outside town. The hotel offers Paddle Board rentals and lessons. The staff go out of their way to make your stay as close to perfect as possible. Only downside is the wifi is a little slow...but...who needs wifi when your on vacation and getting away from everything at a place like this.

Thank you Tin Wis!

All rooms have a beach view. The beach is a two minute walk from your room and balconies help you to enjoy it further. Stayed in a king deluxe room (literally the one featured in the picture) and it came equipped with fridge, two ring hob and all you could need to cater for yourself. Staff were very friendly and helpful and there were even free cookies on arrival at the front desk!

Room Tip: All rooms have a beach view but you get a very good wifi signal in the bar!

Probably the best beach we've been at in Canada. All rooms look onto the water. Access rooms from outside motel-style. Seem to have received a recent Reno, though usual wear and tear. Large flat beach, no weeds or rocks, water is cold but worth the pain for a great swim, lots of tide pools at edge to explore. Neighbouring properties are cabins and camp sites. Beds are ok, limited coffee (asked for more but didn't receive), poor to no wifi. Had one good night of sleep, another with extremely loud beach music until 5 am, management did nothing, front desk only worried about checkout time the next morning not about stay after only a few hours sleep.
Hot tubs are ok, home tubs showing some wear.
For 400 a night you are buying location. I'd stay at a cabin next time as hotel staff aren't helpful and I believe hotel is too full, no service.

My partner and I stayed with our kids for a wonderful weekend. The grounds were immaculate, the beach was spectacular and the hotel was excellent. Very clean and modern. All rooms featured a view of the ocean. The entire team really made us feel welcome and I really appreciated how the front desk staff were so willing to answer all our questions. The kids loved exploring the far end of the beach and all the sea life in the tide pools. Beautiful sunsets, fires on the beach, BBQ puts available too, calm water, and close to town. I would highly recommend staying here if you're visiting Tofino. We had an amazing time.

We've just had a three-night stay at the BW Tin Wis with our student daughters, in between a few days in Vancouver City and another week in Ontario. At short notice we found it hard to secure rooms in the Tofino area for the dates we wanted, and were relieved when we found this. If this hotel were in a less enchanting location we would have minded its 'basic' elements (tiny bathroom, thin walls, mediocre decor..), but the view from the window of the lawns sweeping down to white beach and ocean more than made up for any lack. The breakfasts were fantastic, and it was very handy that there was a small laundry for guest use close to our room. Tofino itself was a 3km drive from the hotel, so very convenient for the bear and whale-watching excursions we'd booked. Our daughters were able to book a two-hour, expertly-led paddle-boarding session with instructors based at the hotel, so that was a great bonus. We would return to this hotel because of its chillled atmosphere and wonderful location.
