The cabins make you think of what cottage life used to be like long ago; crackling fireplace, getting away from it all, peaceful surroundings nestled in the trees, steps away from the beach and gorgeous sunsets. The value is great in the off season but seems a little steep in the summer months. The cottage is sparsely furnished so if... More

We really enjoyed our stay in one of the rustic cottages at Tigh-Na-Mara and can highly recommend tkis resort. It was a pleasant experience, and we already know that we will go back some time. Perhaps next year, a bit later in the year.

Location and beach is awesome! Rented a 2 bedroom cabin. While the cabin was great, we weren't able to sleep at all for what felt like insect bites. We slept on the floor instead for 2 nights. Also felt that no one knew about last minute music by the sea and beach bon fire cancellations/changes. Staff at the front desk... More

Great location for business or family vacation. Service standards are also great. Close to the beach and variety of activities to participate in. The food selection was not great if you're staying there for an extended period of time. Food for value is lacking in the conference centre and I would shop around for different locations if you're considering a... More

It was nice, we thought by booking 4 in a room would give us more value for our buck (not) so I would have stayed with my original booking (2) per room. Pedicure: sat me beside my niece and never gave me a choice to sit beside my friend or her by her friend and the girls giving treatment never... More

We recently stayed in one of the Tigh-Na-Mara log cabins near Parksville on Vancouver Is. We wanted to see the Brant Geese during their migration and were excited to see hundreds one day off the shore. It was rainy and cold so we thought we would treat ourselves to some warm dry accommodation instead of using our camping for a... More

Stayed at the Tigh–Na –Mara this past weekend as part of a golf getaway… found the resort rustic and picturesque with an ocean front view from my room. The resort does have swimming facilities and a spa available (with reservations). The restaurant and lounge offer a good selection of local delights at a reasonable price… the wine selection is lacking... More

From all the advertising and hype we were expecting more from the resort. While it did have some great features we were disappointed with the shoreline trails. The decor and design didn't tie in together for this type of resort.

As a happily married lady, with a busy schedule and demanding job, I needed a quick local getaway to relax. TighNaMara was the answer. A beautiful resort with all knowledgable and friendly staff members that exceeded all my expectations. Thank you for all you did to help me unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of Parksville.

Jennifer W, we're here for you. We understand a lot of people have busy schedules, demanding jobs and need to unplug and unwind. We want to be your quick, local getaway to relax. I lived and worked in the city for many years. Tigh-Na-Mara is only 2 hours away, but once you arrive you feel like you're "away". We live... More

Relaxation started the moment you arrive as a guest of Ta-Na-Mara! The front desk staff are efficient and friendly. As soon as we entered we were greeted and told we would be looked after soon. There were a few people ahead of us and in no time at all we were all checked in and given a map with all... More
