“Great in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

It was our first time to Crystal Cove and it won't be our last. The amenities were plentiful and the service was outstanding. 10 minutes before reaching Crystal Cove , we decided to stop and take in the breathtaking view of long beach wherein I locked my keys in the car. Oh Noooo! Yeah it sucked! Long story short, I called The Crystal Cove with my dilemma and they sent Jen out to save us. Thanks again Jen! We stayed in cabin number 5. Just one word... spectacular!!! Super on every level! Our stressful afternoon turned into a most memorable trip.

We made our trip to Tofino during the last week in February, which was just before the community tourist peak season. We stayed in a nice cozy 2 bedroom cabin that came equipt with a hot tub, and indoor fire place and wood. The wood stock is refilled daily as needed. The staff were all very nice, and as such we received a free Starbucks coffee every morning during our stay. The cabins are all very clean and well maintained! I highly recommend this resort! You will not be disappointed no matter what season you decide to go!

I had been to Crystal Cove Beach Resort many years ago and I had forgotten how fantastic it was and now I can't wait to book my next trip. The cabins are perfectly equipped including dice, cards and crib for nighttime entertainment. and free dvd rentals for the kids. The beds are comfy with a good variety of pillows. Access to the beach can't be beat. The kids also enjoyed the unique playground. The bottle of wine and the chocolates in our cabin welcoming us on our return visit was a pleasant surprise and a symbol of the care and attention paid to this property.

We have been visiting this resort for several years now and although there has been a change in Management since our last visit, this property is still a great place to kick back and relax. We met the new Mgr. (JJ) and some of the staff that have been there since we began visiting this resort several years ago. We know we can get first class service by making our arrangements with Lisa who is one of the most devoted employees I have met anywhere. She is a very gracious lady. The other staff were also top notch from John the woodman to the others that we spoke to and encountered during our stay. Of course one of the main reasons we stay at this property is because it is friendly to pets and our Golden Retrievers love the ocean and the swimming they do daily. A quick reminder to other pet owners that stay at this property. Make sure any mess your pet(s) creates from leaving excess hair on the floor to you know what on the beach, that you clean it up and try to leave the property as you found it. Spotless. Not many places cater to us pet owners like Crystal Cove and by cleaning up properly after our pets we can ensure we will be able to visit this resort for many years to come.

My husband and I stayed one of the 2-person beachside cabins for a 4 day romantic getaway and we loved it. The little cabin was cozy, had a well equipped kitchen and gas grill, a little jacuzzi soaker tub, and a wood burning fireplace. It was great to be able to go for walks on the beach (which was literally in front of the cabin) and then go back and build a warm fire. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. This was a great place for us to be able to have a mix of dining out and cooking our own meals and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: The cabin maps and descriptions are very helpful

We stayed in the RV-park for two nights in May and couldn't find anything wrong with Crystal Cove. Maybe you could nag a little about the view: in the RV-park there is none. Sites are private though, and surrounded by nice old growth trees (some are huge!). There's woodpeckers, Steller's Jays, just lovely. Washrooms/showers are closed off with a code lock. This seems to work well, as they are spotless and clean.

You pay quite a little more here than average ($60/night - $50 in the off season), but wifi, firewood, hot showers and even a complimentary cup of coffee in the morning (until 1:00 PM) are all included, so it's not as big a difference with, say, Bella Pacifica on the other end of MacKenzie Beach. In fact, I think if you add cost for showers, firewood, wifi and coffee to Bella Pacifica's price, you'll find it's about the same. And on top of that at Crystal Cove you get the immaculate washrooms & the office stays open until 10 PM. We also liked how we saw all kinds of personnel busy all day every day (gardening, cleaning); this resort is kept to a T.!

I guess if you don't need firewood, wifi & coffee you might as well stay at Bella Pacifica, but for the clean washrooms alone I'd urge you to reconsider :-)

Not important to us, but Crystal Cove has a nice playground area for children. Might be of interest to families.

We first stayed here because of the pet friendly policy, but now we choose this resort anyway! Brought Australian cousins here and we were all impressed again with the cabins, the setting, and the special free crab dinner; we were pampered, even without the glorious sunny days we had!

Room Tip: They have site plan that shows all cabins.
