This was our 4th time staying at this resort and as always we really enjoyed it. The units are well laid out, easy beach access and our kids enjoyed the hot tub in the rain. We will definitely be back and hopefully for longer next.

By most standards this place is very nice. Generally it's clean, the design is interesting, the kitchens are well equipped, and the beach is amazing. We didn't have views of the ocean from our 2nd floor room near the office. I guess my impression of this resort as a top-notch facility made me more aware of it's flaws. The dead... More

We booked at Cox Bay because we wanted to spend our Tofino time exploring the seaside, and we weren't disappointed! Cox Bay is a lovely beach, just outside the national park but not as close to the town of Tofino as Chesterman - so very unspoiled and relatively uncrowded. Lots of beach to explore - at least at low tide... More

Great place to stay. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean, cosy and the kitchens have everything you need. The only disappointment was the lukewarm hottub. After a day of surfing, we were looking forward to a soak. However , the tub was lukewarm and so not too pleasant to sit in. Other than that, a great... More

Very impressed with the layout of the room,the grounds. Very private and quiet at night. You have the use of a large entertaining area,hot tub, small workout room, and two bbq's. Beach access is easy to access. If you want a place to relax, and enjoy peace and quiet, I would recommend this place. And it is dog friendly.

This place was amazing! The bed was so comfy, bathrooms were very clean. It was more than I had expected when I booked and my boyfriend said I did a great job at picking this hotel.

My family and I stayed in a 2 bedroom condo at Cox Bay Resort in March. The condo itself is modern and has a great layout, using the most of the space. Two families can share as there are two bathrooms and the bedrooms are separated. Full kitchen and laundry included. The 2 bedroom and lofts are all on the... More
