What an excellent place this is for a family holiday. We had a very comfortable log cabin and used the restaurant - exceptional meal - recommended the beef wellington - indoor pool used more than once a day with grand children - ideal for kids, warm and welcoming. Spa and sauna also good. Hired bikes for looking around the local... More

I was so excited to spend my anniversary weekend here as I've heard so many wonderful things about this place! But, I was a little disheartened by my experience here. My husband and I both work in hospitality, so we know how it all should work regarding customer service & high end resorts. We are generally very patient & understanding,... More

Tigh na mara is an excellent family vacation destination. The beaches are clean and family friendly, as are the cabins and the sea side condos. We like it so much we are considering purchasing our own condo at Tigh na mara.

The luxury waterfront condo was the prefect place for two old lovebirds to enjoy their 45th wedding anniversary. The room was wonderfully private, the jacuzzi was a romantic addition surpassed only by the sound of the waves and the view. The staff were lovely and the experience memorable. No fewer than three weddings happened in the beautifully designed area near... More

Stayed here in May for what I thought was a get away for me and the boyfriend, but it turned into an engagement weekend! We booked through BC ferries vacations and their staff, as well as the staff at Tigh-Na-Mara, helped him book the perfect room! We stayed in a top floor ocean view room and it was amazing! The...

If you need your room cleaned... even if the front desk doesn't answer their phone... keep calling. The door hanger doesn't work to have your room cleaned for the day. Food was good and spa was great.

The location was great the beach was lovely. Nice and sandy with few rocks and a gentle slope into the water. It was huge at high tide and the slope was so gentle that you can wade for dozens of meters out and still only be waist high. The water was so warm for the west coast. Somewhere in between... More

Thank you Britney P for posting your review. Happy to hear you enjoyed our location and the peaceful, quiet atmosphere. We do have a shallow and sandy beach that actually provides us with the warmest ocean waters in Canada. I've shared your comments with our Kitchen Team. Thanks again, Jim More

My daughter and I toured Vancouver Island and decided Parksville was a nice half way point betwee Victoia and Tofino. Turns out we were really happy we did this. The traffic in the summer is very heavy and we were happy we didn't drive all the way to Tofino in one day. We took the spa/breakfast pkg and we were... More

Thank you so much Erin B for your recommendation. Great to hear you enjoyed your Soak, Snooze & Savour package and evening walks on the beach! Tigh-Na-Mara Resort has a very central location for Vancouver Island and makes a great stopping point for guests traveling to Tofino from Victoria or Vancouver or Whistler. Until next time, Jim More

Deluxe Oceanview Suite – An excellent room , clean, comfortable, spacious, super comfy king bed. Hearing the sound of the waves from the large private patio balcony, the jetted tub and gas fireplace combines for a very relaxing romantic ambiance.
