Tigh na Mara is on an absolutely stunning beachfront property on Vancouver Island. The staff is uniformly friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, well supplied with comfortable beds. The Cedars dining room provides a West Coast dining experience with a small but well chosen menu. We enjoyed every moment of our time here and would return without hesitation.

2.5-3 star property that holds its own with a decent view if you're fortunate enough to be assigned an ocean view room. Rooms are rustic yet functional. This is more a family resort than a romance destination. We stay here for the indoor pool if there is a room special, otherwise we choose accommodation better suited to our needs.

It is a nice resort, however it is a little overrated based upon the write ups that I had read. I was expecting a little more from the grotto mineral pool...it's more like a nicely decorated pool. The food was not up to my expectations being a foodie. It is better than staying at a chain hotel however I was...

For the last 6 years I have spent my mothers day retreating in the Spa Bungalows at the Tighna Mara. I use to use my air miles each year and then paid a modest amount to upgrade to a Cabin next to the Grotto Spa (As of dec 2015you can no longer use airmiles at the resort). *Yes, if you...

The construction and banging really upset us as we wanted to relax this trip. It would have been nice to have been informed about this before arriving. The spa was nice and the services were enjoyed by all guests.

Great location and rooms. Beds were excellent. Staff very friendly. Chairs in conference facility uncomfortable and breakfast was way below my expectation in taste, quality and what you would expect from the quality of the rest of resort amenities.

I had a fabulous stay ....... all staff was friendly and helpful, the food was wonderful and the cabins unique. The mineral grotto was relaxing, the "dip n' dine" totally unique and there is no other tapas that can compete. I will (and already have) highly recommend Tigh-Na-Mara as a go-to place!

The pool pictures on the website is NOT the pool available to resort guests. The resort is fine, rather nice, but the spa is not so much. Over priced, over booked, and cheep looking. Although the I could book a lovely room on short notice, all spa services were booked up long before. I had to call a separate number...

This is a quaint location , my review is trainted with the fact , we were in the cabin that was in and faced a parking lot . Taking away for the experience . The pillows on the beds are horrible , incest in some good ones . I always surprised when the toiletries are second rate.

I have been to the Tigh Na Mara in February when it was low season and slept well and had a relaxing time. When I went again with my husband this past weekend in May for our anniversary, the room was hot even with the fan on and patio door open so it was hard to get to sleep. Eventually...
