I almost don't want to review this property because I want to keep it a secret. The resort is just lovely. It is so well laid out and well equipped suites. Our family was very relaxed and happy. The extra facilities are wonderful. The large common area with a full kitchen was perfect for our five families to gather for... More

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday in the beginning of January. The place was awesome and the heated bathroom floors were a real treat!! Neat resort and priced very well in the off season. Not much privacy is my only complaint otherwise very modern and clean!!

I have had the pleasure to travel all over BC, staying at many different kinds of accommodation. I LOVE Cox Bay Resort, I can never get enough! I've stayed at Cox Bay over ten times. I like the space of having a whole apartment. It's really great to have the kitchen (gourmet style, gas range) as well as a separate... More

Five of us shared the two bedroom suite and will happily return next year if we could score these off season rates again! High quality beds and quality cookware in the fully stocked kitchen. There was also a hot tub and gym, group lounge to chill in and a great beach to stroll and watch the surfers. We are in... More

Had booked one night just before Christmas, they had a special discount on. Problem was it was for a 2 night stay. Spoke with receptionist & he waived that condition.

When one hears Tofino, they think of the Wikanninish Inn. The Inn was almost $300/night, so I started to look at other options for our end of December jaunt. I wanted an ocean view, but did not want to break the bank to pay for it. Comox Bay Beach Resort, which is perpendicular to the ocean, was offering one bedroom... More

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. However, they seem to run a bit of a scam in terms of booking. On their website they state that the rate for storm season is $170 a night. However, when we called they said it was $245 a night for late January!! Every single travel site on the internet states $170... More

Dear Sheena742, I am very concerned about the information below that you have just shared, as at no time during late January do our rates increase from our 'Off Season' rates. Only during statutory Holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s day, Easter etc.; dates in which reservations are very coveted do our rates increase. This is standard for hotels in... More
