We spent 4 nights at Ocean Village in cabin 37/38. I am in a wheelchair and take up a fair bit of space so we spoiled ourselves by taking both cabins in a beach front "beehive" to accommodate me, my husband and our teenage kids. Think we'd have found one cabin for 4 of us far too squashed, even if I wasn't in a chair. For 2 people, the Cabins are absolutely ideal. Very clean, everything seems (perhaps is) new, kitchen has all you need, cosy. Terrific access to the beach, and stunning views.
The Cabins are not particularly wheelchair accessible and they have no disabled adaptations (which we knew in advance) so I took my own kit to make sure the bathroom would be suitable etc. I have some mobility over short distances with crutches which undoubtedly helped ensure we had a fantastic stay there.
Pool was much enjoyed by the kids, but wasn't accessible for me- the ladders are vertical (easier to use angled steps). I did enjoy some time in the hot tub tho. Pool area is very tricky to get in and out of in a wheelchair
Not Ocean Villages responsibility, but other readers may not know (as we didn't) that locals in Tofino refer to the month as Fogust... For good reason!!
I'd have given 5 stars if it was a little more accommodating for wheelchair users. Canada is SO good at accessibility "stuff" it's surprising that Ocean Village is relatively poor in this regard.
Otherwise it's a fantastic place and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
