We stayed in a two bedroom loft unit. It was amazingly clean with a fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. We did find some crumbs on the dining roomtable, which has interestingly been remarked by another reviewer as well. Otherwise spotless, very comfortable beds. You have to take your own breakfast, which we found rather cosy. Long Beach Lodge next...

The location on Cox Bay is a surfer’s paradise. We were in for 3 nights at the end of Spring Break and had one of the 2 bedroom suites. The resort has no restaurant but the units have full kitchens. We were able to prepare good breakfasts and dinners for every day of our stay so partially offset the cost...

My family and I literally stumbled upon this place as we were looking for a warm, dry accommodation to take a break from our camping trip. We were so lucky to have found this amazing place. Not only is it located on a fantastic surf beach, the complex is quiet and small enough to offer privacy and relaxation.The condo-style rooms...

We spent the weekend in Tofino and Cox Bay Resort. The service, the suite and the beach are amazing. It feels like you are staying in your own place and the units are so well sound proofed that you never hear the neighbours. Thanks for a great way to spend time with family and to celebrate our oldest child's birthday.

Great location right on a beautiful beach. Great for walking and presumably for swimming in summer. There is also a walk to a raised point nearby where the views are terrific. This is a self catering resort. We stayed in a two bedroom, which was very well laid out with each room having a bathroom. The living area was a...

We were a group of six staying over New Years. The fire works were fantastic and right at the beach. Loved the room, view and the hot tub. Enjoyed walking on the beach, the weather was really nice so we missed out on storm watching.

I bought a Travelzoo voucher back in November and we booked for the end of January, in between the snow storms. The resort is located on the beach in Cox Bay which is very quiet and lovely. We had a one bedroom suite right at the end so we could see the waves from our suite. Suite was well equipped...

My husband and I booked this trip 3 weeks prior to his diagnosis with glioblastoma. We thought we might not be able to make it secondary to chemo and radiation scheduling.
