My breakdown of my and my husbands stay at Tigh Na Mara is in 3 categories. Dining, Accommodations and Spa. Dining Cedars Lounge 2/5 stars: We had the Grotto-Fication package so we had a 50.00 credit each for dinner at the cedars lounge as well as 18.00 each for breakfast. In total we had 2 dinners, 1 lunch and 1... More

My husband and I just returned from spending 3 nights at this excellent resort. The service from everyone we came in contact with was superb. Everyone has a smile and are very helpful. We stayed in a spa cabin and just loved it. We were worried about noise being right beside the road but we did not hear a sound.... More

This resort caters to many and not all- there are cabins for large family (camping) gatherings and hotel-like rooms for romantic couples as well as conference facilities- all good as long as you don't mind having the other around. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but not fancy. If below the second floor you do NOT have a view no... More

We stayed here earlier this week, (sept 22/23). Bed was comfy, as were pillows. Clean tidy and cozy. Very quiet. Pool and hot tub were good. Overarching comment is that it needs an update if the prices stay as high as they are. Reception staff were extremely pleasant.

If rustic is your style this resort is for you . It has the log cabin theme going . Stayed here 24 yrs ago in a log cabin but there was no water view so this time chose a room overlooking the ocean . The rooms are quaint - smallish , older with balconies that aren't so private to your... More

I recently visit the Tigh-na-Mara on business. The view from Gabriola was amazing, rooms were spacious, though very dated for the price. I had a facial done at the Grotto spa which felt more like a sales pitch. Was not relaxing at all as I had to keep responding to the lady as she told me about all the products... More

Nice setting. That's about it. We would think a lot more favourable of the resort if we weren't paying $300/night (in the autumn!) for a glorified camping experience. We had a two bedroom cottage. It is described as "rustic", but that really is a cop-out. These are above-average camping cabins. Old, showing their wear...this idea of blended rustic charm and... More

Absolutely horrible. I gave this resort so many chances to redeem itself but to no avail. Making the reservation was awful. I was trying to use a comp room and wanting to stay the whole weekend for our anniversary. Absolutely no assistance to accomodate the fact there were no spa bungalows for the second night even though I was willing... More

the check in girl was not very friendly, not smilling. Waited a long time for someone to go to the front desk and had to use the outside phone to call to get someone to check us in. The cabins not clean at all. Filthy floors that we wanted to keep our shoes on after our socks became dirty from... More

Thank you heather k for your review. Sorry for any delay in the check-in process. If you arrive after 11pm the door to the lobby may be locked for security as our Night Auditor performs the majority of his/her work in the back office, in addition to some Front Desk work. Thus the phone by the door to alert him/her... More

First time in Parksville. Stay at the resort was excellent. Service was excellent, the accommodation clean and very rustic. Beach access was on site with clean beach area. Resturant on site. Highly recommend this resort and town.
