My husband and I haven't gone away without our kids in about 7 years, so this was to be a relaxing couples get-a-way. We have traveled quite a bit in the past years and can tell you that any negative review on this resort is by people who are never happy. We absolutely LOVED this resort.
The resort is upscale without being pretentious. It is a very classy but warm and inviting. The staff are there to help you with absolutely anything you need. Our room was a second floor ocean front and I could not get enough of the view. Truly, beautiful and tranquil. The rooms are a perfect size with a big relaxing soaker tub.
There is a lot of activity on the beach in the daytime with surfers and families enjoying the beach. If you have a dog, this is the place for you because this resort caters to families with pets.This resort is a little gem in the peninsula.
The food is simply delicious. I have to compliment on the continental breakfast. It had a selection of fresh baked goods, cereals, fresh fruit salad and more. The dinner we had was unique and tasty. The chef here, really knows his food. The wait staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent service.
We booked two excursions through the resort. One, was a boat tour to go whale watching and we were so fortunate to have a family of Orca's swim past us!! We also had the chance to see grey whales, otters and sea lions. My husband, being an avid bird watcher, had the great opportunity to see a rare Tufted Puffin. It made his day! The guide was very knowledgeable on the wildlife and history of the area. It was quite a ride and I got some amazing pictures.
The second excursion was a surf lesson for my husband. Although he ended up getting sea sick, he had a great experience and had nothing but good things to say about the instructor.
The front desk staff are nothing less than great. They made you feel like family and gave you a warm greeting every time you walk in the doors. They were very informative on the activities and local events in the area. Check-in and out was fast and efficient.
This was one of the best trips my husband and I have ever taken. I have been raving non-stop to all my family and friends about Tofino and the resort. I will be back but next time I will bring my kids. They will love it, too.
