Relaxing in nature

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 June 2022
Booked in for 4 nights, mainly to see whales and bears (we saw both!). Our apartment was comfortable and well equipped. From our balcony we looked out over the beach and could hear the waves. The other side was temperate rain forest with various trails. An idyllic spot. We were lucky that one day was stormy as this really showed the majesty of the Pacific Ocean. It was a short walk through the forest to our main reception/lounge/dining area. What a fabulous place to relax – comfortable chairs, a log fire, views out over the sea and tea/coffee available. Breakfast was plentiful and we booked in for a couple of dinners which were a set 3 course menu you could watch it being prepared. Seafood Tagliatelle one night and Salmon Chowder the next: superb! The staff were friendly and helpful and we liked the fact that they did not have a daily room service (probably from the Covid measures). The general atmosphere was informal which entirely fitted the environment. Would love to go again.
Date of stay: May 2022
Room Tip: Has to be a sea view, we were in Room 62

        My wife and I stayed here for a week - Room 31 is to die for - well not quite! But the view is fantastic and we loved the sound of the waves and the wind in the trees - right on the edge of the Pacific.

        The staff are professional yet friendly and happy. All of the staff were exceptional, and the ones that we came in touch with were the chefs Tom and Hank, both from the Netherlands, Smiling Sam and the others, Sidney and May - all of whom are - I assume - Canadians. The front desk was manned by several, but naturally the ones that shone for us were Emily from Dudley, and Tess from Stratford in east London - hold onto them Canada, they're too good to loose to a visa system.

        The food changed every night. We loved it. Breakfasts are a bit boring - all good stuff but the granola could be enlivened with a little frest fruit salad. Endless coffee during the day and wonderful muffins and buns that just about lasted through the day - nothing wrong in running out - it means that they are cooking fresh food for the next day.

        If you just walk the two beaches, Mackenzie and Middle, you can achieve 6000 steps, but there is much to do here in Tofino

        Stayed here years ago and loved the little touches such as the cookies at night with tea and hot chocolate and the breakfast was fresh and thoughtfully presented.

        Just returned and although beaches are the reason to visit Tofino - we noticed some decline in this Lodge. We know the rooms are tiny - stayed in the adult lodge- so we were prepared for that - upon arrival we were told that there were no night time cookies - they were having a hard time getting them - slightly confused as there are cookies that could be made or bought - ok no biggie - we will survive lol.

        Asked for a couple of wine glasses to have a glass of wine in the evening - told we don't have any - you have to use the water glasses. Ok - again we will adapt..

        Went to drink a glass of wine in front of the fire in the great room - ants crawling all over the coffee table - when I mentioned it response was - ya we know - it's that time of year...( there are solutions to this)

        Upon breakfast the second morning - the baked goods were burnt and overdone - can happen - I get it - but there were muffins put out that were absolutely black - I have a picture- at this point in terms of food and beverage service these should not even be put out for consumption.

        In addition the young woman putting this together came out to fill the juice jugs with the Oasis juice tetra pack at a table where people were eating - instead of taking the jug into the kitchen and filling it then bringing it back out- again standard food and beverage training.

        these are a few things that we noticed that detracted from a nice stay - probably will not make this our choice again - a beautiful spot though - lots of land to wander!

        We decided to spend a few days in Tofino to escape from the humdrum of the pandemic and to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. As it turned out, we couldn’t have picked a better place to escape and celebrate. We stayed in a room in the Adults Only Lodge which had a king sized bed, a kitchenette and an amazing ocean view of Middle Beach. In fact, we were perched above the beach and it was wonderful to both hear and see the surf. The room was well decorated, convenient and very quiet. A lovely, Continental breakfast was served each morning in the lodge with its welcoming fires, comfortable furniture and beautiful ocean views. The breakfast was extensive and delicious and the staff serving it were both professional and friendly. Actually, all of the staff were very welcoming. Lovely beach walks are easily accessed from the Lodge.

        Room tip: As we visited in January, there were neither crowds nor parking issues. There were, however, a few restaurant closures.

        Had a wonderful 2 night 3 day stay at this rustic lodge. It was clean and quiet . The beds were so comfortable! Even though our room faced the forest we could hear the ocean waves crashing. Be prepared to do stairs , no elevator. The great room was warm and inviting with a fire burning all day . The continental breakfast was fresh baked muffins,croissants, bagels or toast, a variety of jams cream cheese, meats and cheddar cheese. Fresh fruit . Coffee hot chocolate and tea and cookies offered all day till bed time . Close access to Middle Beach for beach combing! Thank you Middle Beach Lodge for a memorable get away .

        Overall I really enjoyed the lodge, but it is very confusing.

        It could use some more signage and lighting because god help you if you need to find the place after dark (which unfortunately for me was any time after 5 pm)

        Lots of old people combined with lots of steps and not much lighting seems a bit risky to me but what do I know.

        The location is amazing though. Very beautiful private beaches and you're in a rainforest so there's that.

        Seriously though consider improving the lighting. And maybe pave that crappy gravel road or at least make an effort to keep the potholes under control.

        The view from our cabin was amazing.

        I feel so conflicted about this place!!!

        Thank you for taking the time to review our property ! We'll take in your suggestions towards the lighting for our roads . Though unfortunately the gravel road leading up to the paved roads on our property are local township roads that are out of control. We're happy that you enjoyed the time that you spent with us and we hope to see you again in the future !
