I discovered this gem based upon other reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. We went for our honeymoon and it was our first time to Vancouver Island. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and modern, and the bed was so comfortable! They have movie's you can check out, provide you...

outside regular business hours the staff was not particularly helpful. None of our requests were of significance so it wasn't a problem - but it is worth mentioning. The room was clean and beautiful. The location incredible.

Stayed for 4 nights in the lighthouse suite - a comfortable, small, one bedroom suite with ocean views. Enjoyed being on the ground level sitting on the patio and being able to walk to the beach in less than a minute. There is a unique BBQ/Firepit qazebo on the property which we made use of. There is no restaurant on...

As said on the previous page. Disappointed with the room location I expected a room on the front of the section we were in considering the price. Found the resort generally a little tired particularly the depressing brown furniture,compared to the pictures on your web site. Will try somewhere else next time.

Beachfront cabins were amazing. This is now our go to place in Tofino. We went as a couple, but I would also return with our family. Great accommodation, fully equipped kitchen, comfy couches and chairs for reading, great views of the beach and many little touches including beach towels, rain gear, bath salts. Amazing!

This resort is located right on Cox beach, the view for our room through the trees and out to the beach was magnificent. The rooms are okay, no complaints at all except that the "free" wifi really didn't work. In a setting like this you won't use much wifi, but I do like to download my local newspaper in the...

This was our second year staying in one of the signature hot tub rooms. It was absolutely lovely! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with quality utensils. Luxurious bedding and towels!

Clean, comfortable, homey with the Pacific surf right out the door. Beautiful grounds, trails to hike, excellent restaurant right next door. Minutes to Tofino, Ucluelet, Pac. Rim Nat. Park. Staff were knowledgeable, helpful and really nice. A great experience that I'd love to do again.

Amazing location for hiking, surfing and nature's beauty. You want to be a passenger on the drive from Comox to Tofino for sure. There is so much to see and in the evenings sitting by a roaring fire talking about the days adventures was a great way to finish off the day.
