Reviewed 21 August 2014

Although the room was basic it was clean and comfortable, with a beautiful beach we were only in our room to sleep. The staff there are extremely friendly, kind, helpful and are the greatest. They helped us in any way they could from the accommodation, directions, ideas, just everything......we are definitely going back!!!

As soon as I walked in our cabin it took me back to the 60's and our family trips to the cabin back east. The room was clean for the most part, but alot of attention to detail needed. Many of the doors and cupboards where mucky around the handles. Cabin needs a repaint inside for sure. Did not feel...

Dear TinDou, Thank you very much for your recent review of MacKenzie Beach Resort. I read your review with great interest and would like to use this opportunity to respond to your feedback.

A very simple place with all the necessary conforts: hot tub, hot shower, laundry and access directly to the beach on the Pacific ocean. Very special in the evening to stay around a fire eating cooked food and marshmallows. Very friendly at reception.

I traveled to Tofino in early August for a surfing vacation I have been overdue for. I had a hard time finding anywhere to stay.

This was our first trip to the Tofino area , and after lots of research decided on Mackenzie Beach Resort for our stay. I liked that reservations are not required so we would have some flexibility if we wanted to travel elsewhere - but once there and settled in we knew it was where we wanted to be. The beach...

We arrived at Mackenzie Beach Resort to find our cabin situated right on the sandy beach - with a beautiful 'front yard' of grass.

We stayed in a one bedroom pet friendly cabin with a "peek a boo" water view. The cabin was private, very clean,spacious and comfortable! The gas fireplace and full bathroom was a bonus!! The 30 second walk to the beach didn't even allow enough time to cool your coffee down. The indoor pool and hot tub made for a great...
