The drive from Nanaimo to Tofino was one of the most amazing drives ever with mulitple stops for pictures! When we arrived at Crystal cove the staff were lovely and very helpfull. We chose the two story cabin with our own hottub. You are able to park your car right outside the cabin making moving cases into the cabin easy.
You have your own wood store outside the cabin that is filled up twice daily free of charge and firelogs inside the cabin just in case you dont want to build a fire yourself. The kitchen is sufficent for family needs but if being honest could do with a referb as starting to look slightly dated. The bedrooms were amazing as was the bathrooms. The main bedroom upstairs has access onto the decking balcony where the hottub is with lovely views first thing in the mornings.
The beach is less then a minute walk and is stunning with loads of room for kids to run about!! IF the weather isnt amazing you are able to borrow DVD's from reception which we did and the kids loved roasting marshmellows over the fire.
As mentioned the kitchen needs updating
The TV is wall mounted above the fire and either needs moving or a bigger TV as the size of the fire dwarfs it!
The outside log walls around the hot tub could do with a really good scrub as the felt dirty due to the steam from the tub.
Dont let the negative points put you off it is an amazing place to stay and as a family we loved it!
