Amazing family vacation for people of all ages.
We LOVED our time here and WILL return.
They can only improve by putting a better mattress on the futon in the loft.
Thank you.

At a private spot at Crystal Cove on our second trip-my boyfriend (we met on-line 13 months ago) he proposed to me on a misty Saturday morning. It couldn't have been a more romantic place. No make-up or frills--rubber boots and all.

He said just before--"this is a nice spot to ask you a question" The answer quickly followed with a tearful but joyous "YES".
Beautiful spot for everyone and no frillls. Staff were wonderful and sincerely shared with us our excitement.
Will return annually if not more often. Scenery and ambiance says it all in this beautiful spot!

We booked to stay here as a part of our honeymoon in the US and Canada. It was everything that we had hoped that it would be and more. When we arrived, we were given the keys to our cabin, which was right on the beach front, looking out into the cove. At the front on the decking was the hot tub, which was great of an evening as it was pretty cool then, but you could stay outside for longer if you sat in the tub! Towelling dressing gowns were provided, so that was great for getting out of the tub and into the cool air. Also on the decking was a gas barbecue.

The inside of the cabin had a rustic feel. There was a living / kitchen / diner area, and it was all well equipped with everything that you would need for a self-catering holiday. Also in the living room was a fireplace, and firewood was provided. This was lovely in the evening, and even though in September it wasn’t so cold that we needed to light the fire, it just gave a romantic ambience that was perfect for us on our honeymoon.

The staff also gave us a lovely box of biscuits on arrival as a gift to celebrate that we had just got married, which was really a nice touch.

The bedroom was cosy and comfortable, and the bathroom was a good size and nice and clean. There is a television and video player in the bedroom, and its possible to borrow movies from the site office. Also, there is a site laundry room, which is great if you find yourself running out of clean clothes (like we did!).

The location is fantastic, as you are not too far from the town of Tofino, where you can stock up on supplies for cooking in the supermarket, and there are some nice restaurants, a liquor store, and plenty of places that organise excursions. Also, as you are right on the beach, there are some beautiful sunsets to be seen, and romantic strolls to take along the shoreline. Crystal Cove really does offer the perfect, romantic, stress-free getaway.

I stayed here 13 years ago and loved it. However now it is much more crowded with more and smaller cabins, RV site and camping. Parking was tight. Only 4 washing machines at the other end of the site for 90+ units meant that they were often in use when I needed them. The site is beautifully maintained and the staff helpful but with no phones in the cabins I had to walk over to the office to ask for toilet roll. The front desk told us that they would leave us alone for our stay which meant that no-one would clean the cabin and refresh the supplies (appart from towels). It is not budget accomodation and I would expect more for $2600 a week.

We enjoyed our visit to crystal cove beach resort. We stayed in Cabin 35. The cabin was very clean. The hot tub was wonderful. However, the cabin was adjacent to campsite which prevented a sense of seclusion. For the cost of the cabin, we would have expected that it would have be more secluded from the campsites.

That said, the location is excellent. The beach is wonderful.

We used this as a base for hiking and whale watching. The cabins were fantastic and it is a great location overlooking McKenzie Beach. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The cabins were modern, clean and comfortable. The outside eating areas were great.
