After spending a lot of time online to source out the perfect property for a special birthday surprise for my wife, I cannot say how disappointed I/we were with the property - from the moment we drove along a very rough road, could not find the address on the property, then to walk into the two bedroom beach cottage I...

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...

Mediocre Cabin. Clean, Bed poor. Exterior full of debris. Pool too cold to comfortably swim. Hot tub okay. Beach is lovely. This is very much too expensive for what is provided. Will not stay here again.

The cabins are rustic, but with maintenance being done on a regular basis they are cozy and inviting. We have replaced our beds in several cabins and do understand that beds are such an important part of your stay. Our pool temperature is kept at 82 - 83 degrees, but during your stay with us it did develop a leak...

We had planned a little trip to Tofino with some hopes of storm watching. This place was recommended to us by a neighbour. We arrived at this place in the pitch dark and the pouring rain. Signage could/should be improved. The road off the highway is riddled with horrible potholes (I expect this is simply due to the location, however...

Thank you for your honesty and comments on our Resort. For your large RV I can understand needing more than one site to accommodate you for sure. And yes the cabins are great especially for the off season when rates are lower. It is great to be in a beachfront cabin to watch those fantastic storms come in with your...

It was pouring rain ...could not find a lodging for the night. Last chance phoned this resort and they had one cabin available. The hostess was so warm and friendly. Walked into our cabin ...it was lovely...clean and lots of space. We started a fire in the fireplace and had a glass of wine on comfortable furniture. We had all...

So nice to hear you had a great stay at our Resort. And that the weather co operated to give you a very special day with sunshine and a world class view.

I recently stayed at the MacKenzie Beach Resort in there pool cabins. I didn't really know what to expect from previous reviews. I was pleasantly surprised with the cabin. It was large, clean living, dining and kitchen area. A deck with picnic table in the front. The cabin was not on the beach, but in a quiet area. The separate...

MBR_Manager, Owner at MacKenzie Beach Resort, responded to this review

Pleasantly surprised is what we want to hear, as our guests satisfaction is what we are all about. Fires being allowed right on MacKenzie Beach is such a bonus, especially for those in cabins or camping sites that have no view of the ocean. The pool suites have been recently upgraded and the wifi has been upgraded as well. Hope...

Quaint little hotel right on the beach! Called ahead for a room and the girl was very nice. She held our room with no credit card. We had a cabin with a beach view, not a big room but the bed was comfy and clean. Draw backs were, hot tub was down and the pool although it was warm, it...

Thanks for taking time to comment on your stay at our Resort. The rooms are smaller for sure but what they lack in size they make up for by being cozy. The Pool had some issues for sure and is currently being renovated extensively. It is a salt water pool and our customers love it so much that we are...

Where to start... yes it is on one of the most beautiful beaches around, that being said, the cabins are old and not well kept up... The cabin we stayed in had issues. The patio has sunken so for anyone with walking or stepping issues, trying to get through the main door was a huge task. The bed was hard...

Yes, we are one of the oldest resorts in Tofino and that definitely has its challenges. But that being said we are always doing upgrades and improvements to keep everything in good condition. Patios have inlaid bricks which once in awhile decide to pop up and have to be reset and we do our best to keep on top of...

Have stayed here many times before. Cabin number 1 needed a littl cleaning. Dishes were a bit greasy we needed to put them through the dishwasher.....not hard! Could also do with the cobwebs removing. However after that the cabin is right on the beach and has pretty well everything you need. We upgraded from cabin 9 as that one didn't...

Thanks for your concerns and for taking the time to let us know where we have to improve. Cobwebs are a constant thing in Tofino, and we do try our best to stay on top of them. It seems like they reappear overnight. Cabin #1 now has a brand new Hot Tub as the one previously there had a pump...

Amenities were a bit tired; cabins are in a great location with a beautiful beach and bay. The cabins were in need of updating and repair, but the were spacious and cozy for those seeking a "cabin on the beach" experience. The kitchens were pretty well equipped, enough so that when we wanted to cook our own seafood meal from...

Thanks for your response and details about your stay with us. We are currently updating and renovating our cabins this winter as well as doing extensive maintenance on our Pool. Our resort is older and rustic but we do updates and maintenance during our off season for sure.

Facilities are disgusting and badly need an upgrade. 3 toilets, 2 female showers for hundreds of people. $20 deposit for a key to access dirty, stained showers.

Thanks for taking the time to voice your concerns about camping at our Resort. The ocean front sites are for sure very small and that is why we ask all customers to view the available sites and chose the one that would work best for them and their tent size. Tofino is so busy during the summer and most days...
