Our room was lovely - right on the ocean - full suite and nicely appointed. You take a chance with the weather but the rain and wind create the most amazing surf - we snuggled in the room and watched the waves for hours. The resort has many dvds to choose from and so on really teeming rainy days, you...

We loved our beach-front suite. To look at the ocean first thing in the morning is a real treat. The beach is beautiful, and I'd highly recommend the boardwalk trail next to the beach. Our suite was very nice. The kitchen is well-equipped. We're happy to see that the resort is pet-friendly.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom beach house in summer 2015 and 2016. We stayed as a family of 5 and there was plenty of space for us. My 3 children shared 2 queen beds. I am being a bit picky in giving this place 4 stars but that is due to: - the rather dark and dreary kitchen (but...

This is a place I will easily recommend to others looking for a clean, comfy place to stay. We stayed with friends in a 2 bedroom ocean view unit. The view was great and we were just a few steps away from the beach. Great for watching surfers or just going for a walk on the beach. The bed was...

Absolutely loved the apartment! There is a barbecue grill right in front of the house and several hammocks and beautiful sunsets. You can get free water at the reception and the staff is really friendly. It was one of the best hotels I ever stayed in. Right at the ocean and the beach. LOVED IT!

Recommended if you are travelling with friends or children. Bring food with you, or shop on the way, because there is very limited groceries on site. No indoor restaurant, just a grill serving tasty hamburgers etc.

Booked the Sunset House for our family gathering, to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, and a late Christmas too, as we were all together in one place. And it was the perfect place! Where to start??? Four bedrooms are all located downstairs, as soon as you walk in the door. So they are cooler than upstairs. That is okay, as I...

Stayed in the one bedroom condo (second bedroom locked off). We have been here several times before but it has been several years. Absolutely everything you need is supplied. Just like home except your on the beach in Tofino. There was nothing else you needed. Kitchen was fully supplied. Interaction with any of the staff, front desk, housekeeping, maintenance, every...

The resort is right on the beach, a few steps from our room and voila, Cox Bay is there to stroll, run or do cartwheels on the sand. Dogs run free, so can we! The rooms are tastefully understated, clean and modern. It appears rooms are upgraded as needed. The staff is cheerful, helpful when needed. The available crab pots...
