Excellent location, great room, many amenities. A lovely retreat between forest and beach. Rooms still in the '70 style, could use an update. A great experience nonetheless. Grotto Spa an experience not tobe missed.

This was our third visit to Tigh Na Mara, we spent the week from July 18-25, there with our grandkids! To start on a positive note, we arrived and were greeted by very friendly staff, and checked in and were given our key to the 2 bedroom cabin, in the back of the resort. The cabins are wonderful for families...

I had been here once before for my sister's bachelorette party with the girlfriends getaway package and was very impressed. So, I thought of it when it came time for my husband and me to get away after his return from a 6 month deployment. The spa was closed for the season and it would have been nice for us...

Over all it is a comfortable place to stay. Unfortunately the grotto spa was closed during our trip which is usually amazing :) The only thing that was poor was no room service and the handle on the bathroom door was not always functional... nothing like a grown adult getting trapped in a washroom lol

Tigh-Na-Mara offers a unique cabin-in-the-woods experience, yet has all the amenities, an extraordinary beach and exquisite spa. It was a wonderful winter holiday for our family, with great skiing nearby. We would love to stay in the summer some time.

Right from the start you realize that this is going to be different. The grounds , the buildings, the staff. Everything is operating equally to say you've come to a resort, an experience , this feels special. There are actually many aspects I could comment on , but I would like to especially single out the Grotto spa for praise....

Me and my gf took our moms to a weekend getaway. It was Extremely busy, very noisy not relaxing at all!!! The spa pedicure we received was not very good for $90. The mineral pool was dirty had lots of floaties and was soooo busy and loud. They ran out of towels for the pool/shower.. overpriced imo

warm and cozy cabin with a wood burning fireplace, nice beach to walk on and the spa and tapas experience was totally restorative. would highly recommend the acai body wrap with a massage ad on starting with the mineral pool and followed by the tapas.

When on Vancouver Island the Tigh-na-mara seaside resort and Grotto Spa are a must do! A truly relaxing atmosphere and cozy cabins with amazing views from the ocean view rooms. The spa experience with the grotto mineral pool and endless tapas dining will make you want to stay for an extended period of time. Definitely a special experience!

“See above comments. Cabins are pricey for off season but Parksville may not HAVE an off season. Very popular destination in Canada.”
