We just spent three days at Tin Wis Resort using a Groupon certificate. The resort is located a five minute drive outside Tofino, and the property extends right down to Mackenzie beach. All the rooms face towards the beach or the open areas. There are no "parking lot views" from the rooms. The sun sets right in front of your room and you have a front row seat.
Our room was immaculately clean, with a king-size bed, gas fireplace, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, flat screen TV, and WiFi reception. The resort is operated by the Tla-o-qui-aht people, one of the native bands on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is decorated with a native theme; cedar canoes, cedar carvings, and native prints are found throughout the buidlings. The reception area and restaurant have open beam construction using local cedar timbers. The staff were very friendly, very efficient, and most obliging.
The restaurant is open is attached to the central building and overlooks the beach and ocean. We had two breakfasts and one evening meal there; the menu reflects the local west coast products, salmon, local halibut, and prawns are all excellent. The bar has a good selection of wines, and also serves beer and ales from the local craft brewery.
The resort is dog-friendly, but pet owners are restricted to specific rooms. There is a large gas barbecue for guest use, and a number of picnic tables are also available. The pool and gym were closed for maintenance during our visit.
