I have never before written a negative review of any place (Mom always said, “If you can’t say anything nice etc), but I feel obligated to those who might consider going here to provide a realistic review, as the positive Tripadvisor reviews influenced my decision to go to this place. Here goes: 1. Bottom line: Don’t drink the Kool-Aid. The... More

Clayoquot is an outstanding Wilderness Resort. I highly recommend it. The location is stunning, the accommodation is luxurious, the food is outstanding and the activities are incredible. On top of that Adele, John and Gary head a friendly and efficient team. This is our second visit to Clayoquot and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Let me start by saying that this is not the typical camping people use to. The resort is built in a beautiful wilderness area. The tents are large, fully furnished and decorated and have electricity and propane heat stove. There are a few tents with ensuite bathrooms and outdoor private shower. From the moment you step out of the seaplane... More

Unless you are in a category where paying for this trip is as significant as buying a cup of coffee at Starbucks and you are fine with enduring a summer camp-type atmosphere for the sake of the kids, then I would not recommend it. Cons Much of the time you are doing "activities" with other families and their kids. If... More

This resort is fantastic. We were recommended by Abercrombie and Kent as somewhere special and were they right. My husband had wanted to go to Canada for his 65th birthday trip so we did the usual Calgary,Banff,Jasper, Rocky Mountaineer and Vancouver and then seaplane here. Our 'tent' was the best 'room' we had had all trip,with lovely antique furnishings, warm'fire',... More

We went into our week at Clayoquot with very high expectations given prior reviews and, yes, the price you pay. But, it over-delivered on every single dimension. The food was amazing -- every meal. The tent was beautiful. Fantastic linens with an amazing view and they setup two smaller beds for our 9 and 11 years-olds. But, the best part... More

We had this place on our travel list for a long time but were put off by the price, even though we are fairly extravagant travelers. We finally gave in to our intense curiosity one month ago and were pleased that we did. The location is as beautiful as you might expect given that you must arrive by seaplane because... More

Clayoquot is a remarkable place. Ryan and his team cook wonderful food (the lunch time fish tacos were especially brilliant) and watching the Shannon and Ryan serve up at the pass was an particularly fun. Heli hiking was great fun and the MTB trails and hiking are beautiful. It is very very expensive but a very memorable few days. Highly... More
