Indifference of some employees is offensive. Location the best quality, beach is one of the best on the island. Spa treatments were amazing. Mineral pool was relaxing. Products used during facial were wonderful. Poor housekeeping and property upkeep. Took 1/2 an hour at coffee bar to make 3 lattes.

Great ocean side resort! Great staff no matter where we went! Our cabin was nestled in the trees, and a short walk to the ocean. Very pet friendly which was wonderful!! If we didn't have a dog, we would love to stay right on the ocean but in the trees was lovely too! Lots of places to walk and enjoy...

This was our experience in room 553. We stayed in a spa bungalow. Right beside the highway. Waking up at 7 to the sound of cars driving past. The bed was lumpy & stiff. My wife woke up with a sore back. our poor baby had to sleep in a playpen that was like a piece plywood. We had to...

Thank you aero_costas for taking the time to post a review as we certainly value and appreciate your feedback. While we typically recommend our Spa Bungalows as great value for the amount of amenities provided, I might recommend our Rustic Cottages or Forested Ocean View rooms for a future stay farther from the road. I'm happy to know that one...

This place is truly awesome! We are two grandparents with two grand kids. There is so much to do and so many activities and learning experiences! Exactly what we are trying to pass on to our grandchildren experiences and life long learning. The extra up side is we can also go for a quiet evening meal or a spa visit...

We only stayed one night here on the way from Seattle to Tofino, but it was a stellar one night stay. This family style resort with lodge, separate lodges/buildings, and a great waterfront could have been our place for a week if we did not already have reservations further north. The rooms are rustic, but very clean and include a...

When staying on the ocean side you can't not feel like you've ben transported away back in to the arms of mother earth. The peacefulness of the ocean breezes and the waves slapping the beach...well suffice it to say you can find relaxation and peace.

The resort itself was attractive, however, to get to the beach was not possible for seniors who were not that mobile. Also the room we were given was next to a laundry facility and we were unable to keep the room comfortable as we could not get it cool enough even though it was mid March and we had the...

My wife and I attended for our 10th wedding anniversary. The bathroom was not very clean (matted hair in the corner of the shower stall and the outdoor patio was covered in green slime and the outdoor furniture was dirty. The little outdoor table was cracked in the middle and had obviously never been cleaned in this calender year. Great...

The venue was well appointed, but felt a bit crowded. I was literally touching the head table. Food was good. Lighting/sound were great. Wedding gazebo is very pretty with the two tiers. Rooms are full of cobwebs, so be careful if you are scared of them. They are mostly cabin style, so that is normal to a point. Items went...

I visited the Tigh-Na Mara Resort recently for a wedding. I liked the feeling of the resort overall, very welcoming, family-friendly and designed to allow you to lay back and enjoy your vacation. It reminded me of renting a cabin in the mountains, but with the amenities of a resort included and the ocean a short walk away. The rooms...
