Really difficult to give a rating!
Unit facilities: great!... full kitchen, gas stove, gas fireplace, dishwasher, washer & dryer etc., BED... super comfy -didn't want to get up (especially as it was raining the whole time), nice bathroom amenities. Flat screen tv, with dvd.
Unit condition: hide-a-bed/sofa in living area was worn and torn, not very comfy to sit - this was the only seating in the living area - with a rattan chair - also not very comfortable.
Resort: Friendly and helpful staff, the unit was spotlessly clean.
Cons: No view of the ocean from our ground floor unit... (we go to Tofino for the ocean views!). There was a major pathway which went right in front of our bedroom... we had to keep the blinds closed, and our windows closed at night - so no sleeping with the sound of the ocean surf pounding! ;(
The top floor units (especially close to the ocean, and those that are two story) probably had some ocean view.
There is a lounge area (had to get a key to access) - with a fireplace (it was never lit while we were there), comfy chairs etc., but still did not have a view of the ocean - just of the hot tub.
There is a viewing loft (had to get a key to access)which was up a flight of stairs (not great for mobility impaired - and had only 4 chairs, the view was obstructed by trees and vegetation so sitting and relaxing to enjoy the ocean was restricted. However, we did enjoy watching the brave surfers!!
If the weather is great, and if the lack of view does not bother you - this is a great resort - room amenities - would definitely recommend., Only 10 minutes into Tofino and all that it has to offer...
We stayed at their "sister resort" Middlebeach Lodoge last year - and preferred it for the incredible "hang over the ocean" view and wonderful continental breakfast - even though there were no cooking facilities.
Probably not go back to Cox Bay, - not because of room, service or amenities, but because we need the ocean view and sounds.
