We usually stay at the campsite next door Bella Pacifica but some people for our office retreat this year expressed interest in staying in cabins rather than tenting and it looked like Mackenzie Beach resort looked like a great option for both. Well we were extremely disappointed at the facilities and attitudes of the managers. We were told dogs were... More

First and foremost, I have never been treated so poorly by someone in the service industry worse then that the OWNER! Upon arriving the first thing I realized is that the pictures on their site are not accurate, some are of the nice camp site (bella pacifica) next door. The first thing we asked about was the beach front camp... More

My family has stayed on two previous occasions in cabin #2. This year, I decided that it would be a terrific place to take my mother for a few days. We arrived midday on Mother's Day. From the moment we arrived to our departure three days later, my mother and I were made to feel welcomed and any needs were... More

November long weekend was fast approaching and the 6 of us were all excited for our Beach Front Luxury Cabin. We had arrived at 11:40 pm and walked into a the most unsanitary discussting mess I have ever seen. First I was assured the cabin was spacious enough for 6. I was told that there were 2 rooms and one... More

We had limited options when looking for a last minute place on a beach near Tofino and booked a pricey cottage at McKenzie Beach Resort. The place was a sad disappointment as for the price of $279.00 a night (three night minimum, midweek) we got a one bedroom cottage, off the beach, which while clean, freshly painted inside and with...

Had a quiet Moms getaway trip away with four of us. Stayed in cabin #1.Good e-mail service and telephone manner from the owner. Not impressed with the caretakers. No friendly welcome. No friendly morning questions as to how our stay was when we were checking out. Room was fairly clean, but the floors were dirty and the bathroom caulking was... More

The reviews of the past couldn't be further from the reality of the present. The new managers, Debbie and Fraser, are as good as they get. Not only are they personable, they made every effort to ensure that we had a great time at their resort. We stayed in Cabin 1, so we were in direct view of the beach.... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Mackenzie Beach. The resort has really friendly and helpful staff and I couldn't fault the tidyiness of cabin number 4 which we stayed in. Me and my family really enjoyed being close to the beach and using the heated indoor swimming and hot tub at mackenzie (its defintely something to think about if the... More
