Hotel's Favourite
This was our third time in a cabin at Crystal Cove, we love it so much we just booked for October 2021! We can't say enough about Crystal Cove, from the staff, to the beautiful grounds, everything was perfect. We love getting out of bed in the morning and just putting on our rain coat and boots and having a morning walk on the beach and then back to the cabin for a hot tub. We love the privacy we get at Crystal Cove, but if you need anything, all you need to do is call the office and they are more than happy to help you.

We stayed in the Glamper and it was great. Had everything we needed so we could just pull up with our groceries and start the vacation. Plus it saved us having to bring our own trailer across on the ferry. The location is super close to the beach and walking distance to Tacofino etc. The resort has lots of amenities for the kids. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Have stayed at this resort several times over the past few years. The location is fabulous. Some of the older cabins are getting a bit tired, but overall we had a wonderful family stay. Staff were lovely.

Dear Doug. Thanks for your ongoing patronage of the Resort. You'll be please to know that we will be refreshing all the beachfront cabins this year with new furnishings and fixtures as they have seen very high usage since we started our renovation of all those cabins in 2013 and 2014. I think you'll be pleased with the results. Sincerely. J.J. Belanger. General Manager
