My wife and I have stayed at the Tigh-Na-Mara in September for the past 3 years during our golfing trips on Vancouver Island. This year we used the hotel as our hub so we could return to the amenities of the hotel every day. This is the kind of hotel and location that makes you sad to leave. Our experience... More

Resort situated on the beach on the outskirts of Parksville, the site extends across the road. We had a spa bungalow which had a huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub. There was a small kitchen with all the requirements for self catering, toaster, hob, pans, clothes and towels etc. etc. Main room had a lounge area with huge TV, sofas and... More

I guess my expectations had been raised too high. For years I have been hearing about this resort and how highly regarded it is, so I was stoked to have the opportunity to stay here. It was kind of average. The room we stayed in was nice, but just flirting with being a bit dated. I was stoked to have... More

We just stayed there one night - based on our travel agency's advice for a stopover from Tofino to Whistler. Good thing: it is clean. But here comes the downside: We had a oceanview room which had a spectacular view. But the rooms are so outdated, we did not believe what we saw. Carpet is filthy and worn. Beach is... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary in an Oceanview Studio room with a king bed and jaccuzi tub. The room was very nicely decorated and the view was AMAZING. The room didn't have a/c so it was a bit stuffy during the night. I wish we had left the door open for a while in the evening to cool... More

I just checked out of 4 days at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort in Parksville, BC, Canada. Myself and 15 others were there for a spiritual gathering. The staff were friendly & helpful, especially Emily in Banquets & Jerralyn at the Grotto Spa. Our meeting room was welcoming, with a stone fireplace and access to the outdoor garden patio. The food was very... More

My wife and I stayed in an ocean view room. The view was great, but many of the rooms don't have a good view, and you could be looking at a hedge or scrubby trees. The washroom is very small with a chipped sink and tiny shower. There's a large jacuzzi next to the bed (seems odd), but does anyone... More

Thank you Dan M for posting your review. Really appreciate the feedback as it helps direct our efforts as we continue to strive for improvement. While all our ocean view rooms definitely do have a good view of the ocean, the view in some of these rooms also includes the trees and foliage that live on the bluff in front... More

Thank you Malcolm A for your review all the way from the UK. First of all, good decision to spend a night at Tigh-Na-Mara as you traveled between Whistler and Tofino. It makes for a very long travel day with the drive and ferry and I recommend breaking it up. As you said, spending two nights would have been even... More

Just stayed at this location to celebrate a special occasion and was to say the least disappointed on accommodations. They are extremely outdated to say the least and for what they are charging I would have expected much more. I can say that staff are second to none and the spa is exceptional. As for the cedars restaurant the food... More
