We didn't know what to expect and thought that the hotel would be full of faded hedge fund managers. I mentioned this to one lady and she said that her husband was a hedge fund manager, but he was not yet faded!
Still, the resort is pleasantly underplayed. The emphasis is on personal choice and individual guiding. If you wish to fish on your own or with another, that is fine. I had my own horse for the week and graduated from debutant to gallop in about 10 hours of riding. I also shot the rapids in a kayak, fished for one full day and 3 half days and had numerous massages. It was great.
The restaurant is good, bur not 5 star. That is actually just right, as 5 star would not fit with wilderness. The menu each night was very nice. They had chosen the best BC wines, but at the cost of the resort, which with tip is around CDN$3,000 per day, they could have had a few others. We could have whatever we fancied really, but you only realised that after a couple of days. We had a full week there and that would be what we suggest. In and out in 3 days is bit quick and it may mean that you don't get good enough weather to fish for salmon offshore from Tofino. We ended up with about 120 lbs of salmon, which was prepared and delivered to our home. It lasts a long time, but is wonderful!
