We spent two nights at Cox Bay Beach Resort midweek in April. We loved it. Our room was on the ground floor with a single bedroom. We could see a glimpse of the ocean from the window, but mainly had an interior view. The landscaping is nice. Water access is a quick walk from the unit. The lodgings and furnishings... More

We stayed here in June 2009 just before summer hit. We paid $169/night for 2 bedrooms which usually let for $435. This place is amazing!! Top-of-the-line EVERYTHING from floor to ceiling. Deck overlooking the bay!! Immaculately clean. Most comfortable beds I have EVER slept in. EVERYTHING here is top quality. Check the pictures you will see. The complex is located... More

I recently stayed at Cox Bay resort for three nights with family, and we had a fabulous time. First of all, the location is spectacular. Just 7 km from the town of Tofino, and right on the beach. Our room was excellent. There were three of us staying in a one bedroom unit. Two people in the bedroom, one on... More

The first thing u need to know about this place is that u are pretty much on your own. The rooms have a full kitchen, dishwasher and washer/dryer. So go shopping in town or bring your own food to save some $. Tofino has good, but very expensive eateries. Cox bay does not provide breakfast or have a restaurant. The... More

This is a new, modern condo type accomodation. The 1 bedroom unit was very nice for a couple. The bedroom is a bit small, but not a problem since this unit also has a kitchen and living area. They could have provided a few more kitchen utensils but we managed. Nice hot tub, only steps to the beach. Had to... More

We spent 3 nights at CBR in early September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I booked a 2BR thinking that this would ensure a 2nd floor unit and hopefully a view of the beach, but we ended up in one of of the few first-floor 2BR units, and second unit from the reception area (and almost furthest unit from the...

We stayed at Cox Bay Beach resort for 3 nights. It was very late when we got there and we had trouble finding the entrance as the sign was on the side of the road but not at an entrance. To access the resort you had to use the Long Beach resort entrance and then head off towards the right... More

This was a lovely apartment on a stunning beach. You can't really get a better location and I was impressed with the design and quality of the apartment. I would agree with some other reviewers on this site about the house keeping.... it was a bit of a joke, not sure there was much cleaning actually involved but I am... More

Just returned with from 7 nights at the Cox Bay Resort. We were very happy with everything - the biggest issue seems to be housekeeping. Feels like people expect hotel style housekeeping for the $.

We traveled to Tofino for a three night stay with our 3-month old baby, and booked 1431 Cox Bay at a last-minute price of $200 per night. We stayed in the ground floor beach house closest to the sea - a very nice location if you don't mind the long walk to the parking lot. The quality of the construction... More
