On our way to Tofino, stopped here for the night. Enjoyed the Grotto pool and Tapas. Our room had great views of the water. The room is a fully equipped studio with kitchenette. Log construction including a skylight! Ours was just a gas fireplace - some of the cottages had real wood fireplaces. Comfortable and great surroundings!

The Spa Cabins are incredibly spacious and highly recommended for a family. Our children comfortably slept in the drop-down Murphy bed whilst my wife and I had a huge room with spa tub all to our selves. It was almost like a couples get-away. Of course the kitchenette was extremely useful. The indoor pool is great, with adjacent hot-tub. And... More

Our visit to Tigh-na-mara could not have been more blissful. Tall firs throughout, spectacular views, the most phenomenal beach that goes on forever!!!! Absolute heaven for children and dogs.

Lovely rustic lodges with ocean views. Our room was cozy with log construction. We had a fireplace and patio that accommodated two chairs and a small table. We watched the storm from indoors beside the fire. Lovely..... It room could use some updating of fixtures and lighting. The spa is everything that it advertises to be and was a welcome... More

Not sure if my wife and I got Norovirus at this hotel, but very likely we did, as we were traveling with friends and the only difference in our trip was the hotel room. The room was dirty, the carpet looked like it had not been vacuumed, the lights above the bathroom sink had a least a year of dust... More

Thank you SSnipDDog for posting a review. I am very sorry you and your wife were sick throughout your weekend stay and therefore obviously did not enjoy yourselves. I must strongly disagree, however, with your suggestion that we gave you the Novovirus bug. I can empathize and understand the desire to blame someone, but the comments made are just not... More

On a previous visit we rented a condo overlooking the water. Spacious but had to climb stairs and the fireplace was gas. This time, for a family celebration, we rented the log cabins (1 and 2 bedrooms), private and nestled amongst the tall firs which is indicative of the whole property. There is a full kitchen, wood fireplace, skylights and... More

"Good for your soul" - I like that very much! Thank you DoinLittle for posting your review. Great to see that you are a return guest who this time decided to try a different room style and chose to stay in our private log cottages.

I stayed here while on a work trip and enjoyed the location. My room was fine, but did not have a kitchenette, as was expected. At least having a BBQ available helped. The resort grounds are very nice, with a great view over the water.

Thank you Paul D for taking the time to post your review. Comparisons are always challenging as each property is so different and offers different things.
