My son, his wife and I spent a few days over New Years at Cox Bay. The rooms were comfortable and well stocked, the viewing room was lovely and warm (a great place to watch the kids surfing) and the hot tub was a great way to relax while they surfed and for them after surfing. I even tried out the exercise equipment and sauna as I was not interested in surfing. On New Years Eve we barbequed salmon and veggies on one of the barbeques provided outside the lounge then watched the fireworks on the beach which were amazing! That evening we sat in the lounge and played Scrabble while other families partied, many stopping by to visit with us by the fire. We drove into Tofino for groceries and lunch one afternoon and into Ucluelet to hike the Wild West Coast trail and for lunch another day. The resort was right on a great surfing beach and the surfing and boogie boarding were terrific (so I was told over and over again). I personally can recommend the hot tub and sauna! There was easy access to Tofino, Pacific Rim Park and Ucluelet from the resort.
