While reasort has variety of areas which had our team spread out in different sections, the amenities (park, bball court, beach fire pit) allowed families to enjoy the outdoors as well as indoor pool area.

Although complimentary firewood is available, I would take my own non-smoking type next time as their's smoked out our cabin very quickly. Location is great to get onto beach, into towns etc. Grotto Spa is lovely.

Stayed here with a hockey team and apparently got a "good rate", I have never been but had heard this was the "place to be". Rooms are incredibly old, baseboard heaters and appliances from the 70's. The floor had a film of dirt on them. Our kitchen was crawling with ants. I told them when I checked out and the...

If you want a charming rustic resort with all the amenities where you and your family can put the screens away and relax...this is the place for you. Hours spent walking the amazing beach, flying kites, building sand castles. The Ballenas building is newly renovated and Gabriola is being renovated now. Stay in an ocean view room in the non...

I would recommend that larger groups/ families rent a cabin not one of the older oceanview suites as the noiseproffing is almost non existent. Family noise laughter and talking disturbed our next door neighbors

If you want any spa treatments book them way ahead of time as it was all full when we were there. Also there is no assigned parking spot so if you go out and come back late it is hard to find a parking spot and you may have to walk a ways to your cabin. The cabin was very...

My daughter and I have just spent a wonderfully rejuvenating weekend at the Tigh-Na-Mara. Our accommodation (A Spa-bungalow suite) was immaculate, warm and welcoming. All members of the staff we met were friendly, polite and very helpful. The spa experience was wonderful. The mineral pool experience was lovely and relaxing, as was the spa treatment. An absolutely perfect getaway!

Stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin for a girls getaway. The resort is in a beautiful location, with direct access to the beach. The cabin itself has basic cooking facilities (coffee and coffee maker included) for those who want to bring groceries. Otherwise, there's a restaurant onsite (we didn't try it, only ate at the Grotto Spa). My main reason...

Thoroughly enjoyed this getaway. The only problem was noisy chainsaw activity right outside our room at 9 AM. This irritataing and intrusive noise ruined the ambiance of a relaxing morning and continued through to check out time.
