The accommodations are very comfortable. The beach is very beautiful with islands that are within kayaking distance. The Mackenzie Beach Resort is a great base for all your activities in Tofino and Pacific Rim Park.

We stayed at MacKenzie Beach Resort for 3 nights in a Oceanfront cabin and enjoyed our stay specially in the off-season. The Resort is one of the older resorts but it is more a classic stay where you can get the important things. We had a oceanfront cabin and it was a great experience to see the ocean 24 hrs...

What a wonderful, relaxing weekend we had at this resort. The cozy oceanside cabin included clean bathrooms, a kitchen, that was fully stocked, with tools and even a broiling pan! This came in handy when making our breakfast and dinner. The view was gorgeous, inside or outside because the cabin had large windows. The staff were friendly and very helpful...

RELAX you're not on the mainland is what your getaway at our resort is all about. The ocean has such a profound effect on all who can hear or see it and we hope you will find time to return once again for a relaxing getaway.

We stayed at Mckenzie Beach and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and view from cabin #3. It was right on the ocean and were fortunate enough to capture some beautiful sunsets. The customer service is exceptional and I know first hand that Dorothy (manager) will go to all extents to please the guest! We are already planning our next...

Beach front cabins are so close to the ocean you can taste the salt in the air. What a view for sure and am so glad to hear you were able to see some unbelievable sunsets. That are so amazing, especially in the winter months when the sun drops into the water and colors of all kinds change the landscape...

Well, this is perhaps the 6th time my family has stayed at Mackenzie Beach, and once again it is purse heaven. Not chi-chi or fancy, it feels like a classic family summer cottage. The whole place is absolutely comfortable and dog-friendly, with two big cozy couches, a beautiful stone fireplace housing a big wood stove and daily deliveries of firewood....

Return customers are what we are all about as pleasing our guests is top priority for sure. We are dog friendly in most of our cabins and Keira the resort dog is always on hand to meet the new arrivals and explain who is Top Dog in her own calm way. So great to have you come year after year...

I can't express how this place made my weekend. I wanted a romantic spot with a great view and this place was a crazy reasonable price for the value we received. My beautiful girlfriend couldn't stop staring out the window enjoying the beach that was literally on our doorstep. We had a nice fire on the beach under the stars,...

Firstly I'd like to say that the service received from reservation through to check out was personal, polite, and genuine. The manager, Dorothy, responded in detail to all questions asked and offered insightful advice to the accommodation that would best serve our families needs and budget. We stayed in Cottage 12. Breathtaking! - gas fireplace was lit upon our arrival,...

This resort is definitely my happy place and serenity! The number one thing that keeps me returning here, is how honest the owners are. It may be the oldest property in Tofino, however, the charm and warm hospitality has made me a loyal guests. Here, they do not do any false advertisement about the property and go out of their...

Yes, we are doing off season renovations. One large project we are tackling is our large indoor salt water swimming pool which is being redone. On your next visit we do want your opinion on all our changes and upgrades.

The best think about camping at Mackenzie beach is that they don't do reservations. If you get there and they are full, they will put you up in over flow until a better spot become available. You can almost grantee a place to sleep here when going to Tofino. The ocean/beach sites are vert very close together and very small....

Thanks for your comments on your camping experience at our Resort.

Yes, I agree our road does need some more maintenance, and the District does their best but the pot holes seem to appear almost overnight after it is graded. We are now in our slower season doing upgrades to the property and the cabins. The stairs have been repaired as one step had a little movement to it and as...
