“Three days in Tofino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

My wife and 5 month old just got back from a 4 day three night stay in Tofino at Cox Bay. The hotel and property were excellent. The room we had which was probably the smallest most basic available was still very nice and more than enough for us. The hotel backs onto cox bay which is gorgeous and great for walks. Location puts you about a 5 min drive into town and 5-15 mins from most other things you'll probably want to do while there. The only thing I could suggest would make this hotel better would be an onsite restaurant. While not having one didn't detract, it would have been something enjoyable to have for one night over cooking.

Anyway, if your looking for the Tofino experience without a doubt consider this hotel.

I just returned from a two night stay, and have to say it was one of the best stays ever! I was in the one bedroom main floor and just loved it! It has everything one could need for a stay. It is right on the beach, and while the room did not have a view of the ocean, it was a two minute walk to it. I could hear the roar of the surf from my patio. Am planning another trip soon with my husband this time!

We stayed here for 2 nights this past month. Got a really good internet rate - $99 a night/1 bedroom/ground floor. Definitely a west coast style condo - good choice of colours and materials. Very impressive walking into the condo. Compact but spacious. Clean. Bed was comfortable but the pillows were thick - would not flatten - woke up with a sore neck. Entrance area had no closet or hooks for outdoor clothing so had to hang items in bedroom closet or drape over a dining area chair. Unit contained washer/dryer and dishwasher. We enjoy cooking - had all the utensils that we needed.

Outdoor patio for sitting on but one doesn't see the ocean (which is a feature that I missed) but looks across to the other units. Yes, this is a pet friendly place but dog owners please clean up after your dog. There was a pile of dog poop right by my chair - ugh!

Both the entrance door and bedroom door had glass panels. The outside entrance light stayed on all night. Lots of light came into the bedroom - not great if you like a dark room for sleeping in.

I was surprised at how the sound travelled down from the unit above - could hear voices. Quite the racket when the housekeepers were cleaning.

We did enjoy staying in the unit - it is a nice retreat.

The resort is so pretty and the rooms are super comfortable. With direct access to the beach, outdoor hot tub and friendly staff, the resort has it all. We came away feel very refreshed and would love to visit again in the summer.

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon, but wished we had spent the entire trip at this location. We loved every moment of it, the setting was beautiful and the whole experience was perfect in every way. Our unit was just the right size, and had everything we could possibly want or need in it. We were very close to staying next door at Long Beach but once we arrived we realized we had made the right choice. We hope to return someday and stay longer next time!

I have always wanted to stay at Cox Bay Resort, but it can be a little pricey. Luckily I was recently able to find a very good deal online and in the car I was..driving for a night to Tofino. The staff were very friendly when you walk in, and the place is so tranquille.

I was put up in a 1 bedroom condo, that had a fireplace, a huge kitchen, a bath tub that you get lost in and the most comfrotable bed ever! At the end of the walk way is the hot tub for everyone, where you can sit in at night and listen to the waves of the beach that is literally knocking on the front door.

The only downside is that there isn't a view from your condo, you're looking into othger condos, so it kinda teases you as you can hear the roaring ocean off in the distance.

Love, Love, Love this place and would book it again, if I can find that deal!
