“Good Value in Tofino”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

We stayed in a Lower Studio Cabin which featured a bed, bathroom, small kitchen, table and two couches which would convert to two twin beds. The cabins provide great value compared to the other resorts in Tofino and the location on MacKenzie beach can not be beat.

They were obviously in the process of updating the kitchens and bathrooms in all the units.

We stayed with our two large dogs. Their pet charges were extremely resonable and we had no issues with our pets. MacKenzie beach and adjacent Chesterman beach are the ultimate off-leach park. The laid back atmosphere makes it perfect for anyone travelling with pets.

The pool facilities are a little dated and lack-luster. The hot tub was in need of a cleaning when we stayed - but not that important when in such a spectacular beach location!

Stayed at a beachfront unit with wife ,mother in law and dog. Great view and easy access to beach . Very functional with good beds for a casual holiday. Beach is sheltered and not particularly long so would be good for families and dogs who don't need long walks.

Easy to find location, close to Tofino. Beatiful landscaped areas and in the middle of Mackenzie Beach. Cabins were pretty basic (no television or radio) but then your not distracted from media and can get out on the beach and hikes. Beach is very safe for families. If the weather is bad, the resort has a building with a heated pool and a hot tub. The cabins are older and smaller than other resorts, but it does have a family relaxed feel. Some of the more expensive resorts feel that they are aimed at the wealthy or adult only.

Room Tip: We rented both an upper cabin and a lower cabin. We prefer the lower cabin because it has a full wa...

We just spent 4 glorious days at Ocean Village! The lower part of a 2 level cabin was perfect. It was rustic with wood throughout, everything we needed plus a million dollar view of McKenzie Beach:-) The staff were very helpful and friendly and answered all of our questions. The pool and hot tub were a nice way to end the days of hiking, biking, and zodiac trips to Meares Island to walk the Ancient Trees Hike and Hot Spring Cove which was so special as we saw nesting eagles, harbour seals, sea otters and a gray whale. Will definitely go back to Ocean Village hopefully sooner than later! Thanks for a wonderful holiday away from it all including TV, phone and radio:-)

Room Tip: A one bedroom cabin would be a little quieter than the 2 story cabins with a one bedroom on the main...

I stayed at Ocean Village for two nights using an Ethical Deal coupon. I was impressed by the cleanliness and comfort in the cabins. The weather wasn't that great, so my daughter and I spent a lot of time in the pool, which was also really clean.

This is the perfect place to stay for families or groups because you can cook all your meals in the fully-stocked kitchen. The toiletries are environmentally-friendly, and the coffee is fair trade, which is an added bonus in my books.

We stayed during the week when many of the cabins were empty. I would guess it might be loud on weekends because the cabins are not at all noise-proof.

We have been coming to Ocean Village for years and years and years. The recent renovations to the two bedroom cottage we stayed are fantastic! New floors, kitchen, fireplace...... Ocean Village has always been our favourite place to spend spring break with the kids. The cottages are wonderful, the grounds are amazing, and the scenery can't be beat.

The most beautiful and affordable option in Tofino. We all had a blast and the weather (February) was incredible. The cottages are unique, clean and offered many of our new members a true Tofino experience. The staff is personable, hardworking and will tend to any needs. The location and scenery are magnified by the well maintained grounds. Numerous bald eagles nest on adjacent properties and we watched them daily. Immediate access to the beach was our main reason for staying at OV, however, we found out that within a short walk you can find yourself secluded among the rugged coastline. Dont be afraid to explore!

Surf rentals are short walk away. It takes 5 minutes drive to town and many restaurants are even closer...(try Tacofino, Wildside grill)

We were looking for accommodation that would distract us from the mundane life, Ocean Village delivered and surrounded us with comfort and beauty. There is no better value for your money! A++ we will be back soon!

Room Tip: Most have ocean view... hard to choose.
