“What a sunset!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

LBL is definitely going through some changes. There is a lot of new staff and the home away from home feeling was missing from our recent visit. But, with all changes, things will return to the norm. A core group of staff remains and will bring the new staff up to the exceptional standard we have always experienced. We know our next visit will find LBL remembering all the details of a returning guests that made us feel special over the years and a renewed standard of exceptional service. Highly recommended, and the view from the Great Room can not be beat!

Thank you for your review, I am delighted you got to experience one of our beautiful October sunsets, they have been spectacular! After the departure of our General Manager, September a year ago, there were some management changes. I believe we now have the best team we have ever had. Also, this winter we are doing a number of upgrades and improvements to the hotel and cottages, that we are very excited about.

As we only had 5 days on the Island and wanted to see Victoria also, we only ended up with one full day in Tofino which is just beatiful. As others have said the setting of this hotel is amazing, we watched the sun go down on our balcony with a glass of red, just perfect end to a day. Our room was really big and looked over the beach, just such a lovely way to wake up and see the beach. The restaurant setting is wonderful with great views and great food. We will be back for longer next time as didn't have time to use any of the facilities, or fully experience Tofino.

Room Tip: Book a room that looks out onto the beach, just amazing.

A very pleasant way to spend a few days in any season, from summer sun to winter storms. Pleasant, casual staff, surf lessons with complete rentals, dining room, and near to the charming villages of Ucluelet and Tofino.

Room Tip: Beach facing rooms offer a view of the surf coming in off the Pacific. Pets are allowed in ground l...

I am glad that you enjoyed your visit. You are correct in that every season is great at the Lodge and Tofino. The Pacific marine environment is very unique, the ocean sets the mood!

A really lovely experience. Great cabin which we shared with friends complete with hot tub. Hotel on the beach so great for watching surfers and strolling along quietly. We stayed two nights in mid September. Staff friendly and helpful. Perhaps not the widest menus selection but they coped well with the celiac member of our party and had gluten free bread available.

Thank you for your review, I am delighted that you enjoyed your cottage visit. If you have any special dietary requests, it is is always a good idea to discuss your requirements with the Chef, when you arrive, he will be more than happy to assist you.

The setting of the hotel is simply beautiful. STraight on a stunning beach and surrounded by nothing but nature. Me and my bf were simply amazed.
The hotel in itself is also really nice. The rooms are very clean and quite big. Ours had a fireplace and it was really cozy. The bathroom had a double bathtub - very nice.
The included breakfast was also very nice even though as a vegetarian I was lacking options to put on sandwiches.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Overall we were very pleased with our stay at the Long Beach Lodge Resort.
Nevertheless I want to also mention the more negative sides:
-The hotel starts to get old - this becomes visible in the rooms with furniture starting to look a bit rough. I guess they will soon be doing some renovations.
-On our first night we ordered room service. The service in itself worked very well but the food was not great at all and way to expensive for what it was. We had a burger which was very small and the meat was mediocre and some pasta dish that was too salted and at best lukewarm.

I took my husband (and our new puppy) here for his 50th birthday as he wanted to 'Get away from it all" for his big day. We had a lovely trip. The LBL was a really good place to go for our 1st Pet Friendly vacation. The views were spectacular, the weather amazing. Only regret was that we did not make it to the hot tub. too busy trying to fit everything into our 3 day visit!

I am delighted you had a wonderful visit to celebrate your husband's birthday. Now that your puppy has had a taste of the Lodge and beach, I hope you realize that your pup will expect to be along on any future visits! October is a wonderful time in Tofino, we often get this beautiful weather and lovely sunsets.

I am writing this as I am sitting in my upgraded room.
To no fault to this resort I found those above me on the nosiy side. I am very sensitive to noise. When I brougth this up with the staff they went beyound what can be expected when there is limited availabilty and put me in
a beautiful and quit room. For those that service is number one you can count on this resort. I give this resort a five star.

All the above is in addition to the beautiful scenery and enviroment of the Long Beach Lodge Resort.
