This is our 4th!!! time staying at Crystal Cove. We visit Tofino every January, and this is the first time we've visited Crystal Cove and been less than impressed. Things really have gone downhill and not been kept up in the cabins, so we have decided to stay elsewhere for our annual trip next year. The cabin we stayed in...

Hello Annilee J. I'm sorry you feel our resort has gone downhill a bit in your eyes. We have spent over $2.5 million dollars in the past 5 years renovating our cabins. As of this spring all of our beachfront and beach view cabins have all been updated with heated tile floors, new kitchens with granite countertops and stainless appliances,...

We and the dogs enjoyed our trip. Love the dog friendly part and the fact they can be off leash on the beach. Everyone seemed to keep animals under good control within the resort. A lovely experience!

Spent four days at Crystal Cove resort, on Mackenzie Beach. Beautiful resort. Cabin #5 directly on beach...can watch the surf from the bay window, or sit on deck or in the hotub. View is breathtaking. The resort is small, but even so the are cabins private. Daily linen, firewood, never wanted for anything. Complete with Starbucks coffee. Beach walks, and...

We again greatly enjoyed our stay at Crystal Cove. It has become our favourite place to go when we want to visit the west coast of Vancouver Island. Beautiful setting and great cabins. Enjoyed the hot tub on the deck in the moonlight with the sound of the surf.

We stayed for just one night, cabin was clean and warm, the heated floors were awesome after a good hot tub. Firewood was available when we got there, they had firelogs for a quick light, the dog supplies were handy, I would come back

Had a great time. The cabin is wonderfully appointed and the view amazing. The only concern is that the wood for the fireplace was very wet and would not stay lit. And when the wood box was filed the top stayed open and in the rain it just got even wetter.

Dear Sabinkirk52. I'm pleased you had a great time overall. However, the wet firewood can be a challenge for us here in a coastal rainforest climate. We do have tried and true guest tips for getting the best fire going in our guest directories in each cabin. We also supply 4 presto fire logs in each cabin and these are...

Fantastic ambiance. Cozy rustic cabin with all of the expected modern conveniences. Cabin 3 was a great spot to see the tide slowly roll in and out of the cove. In the morning the cove would be full of water and wildlife. By late afternoon the water would recede exposing a large walkable beach area just outside the door to...

Great clean and newish property. Our cabin was very close, but not on the waterfront. The view to the ocean was very nice, obviously slightly treed but still enough to enjoy the rolling action of the waves and view of the rocks off the beach area. The property is at the end of McKenzie beach and entry to the beach...
