“Wonderful family weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Our family of 10 enjoyed our stay June 20th - 22 at the resort.
Wonderful accommodations, food and atmosphere.
The staff were very accommodating in arranging our supper reservation on Saturday. We will definitely recommend Long Beach Resort to our friends.

Great location, paid for a Deluxe room with direct access to the beach and it was stunning. Room had everything you need, staff attentive and helpful.

Only downside was the wi-if connection was so poor more often than not you had to abandon what you'd started. On the upside, it gave you more opportunity to admire the view.

Thank you for your review,

The WiFi is our single biggest complaint. It is a problem for everyone living on our remote coast. The community has approached the Provincial Government for assistance and it has been recently announced that Telus has agreed to provide service to Tofino and the West Coast, with-in the next two years.

My wife and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary at this wonderful resort. We stayed three nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The third floor room overlooked the ocean and you could hear the waves all day long- it was very peaceful. We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine- which came as a complete surprise to us. We walked the beach, collected shells and watched the surfers brave the waves and the cold water!! We enjoyed a marine adventure with Skipper Josh- who was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in pointing out the various bird species and the whales!! We ate several meals at the hotel and they were very good! This was our first time to Tofino and it will not be our last-- looking forward to returning there and we will be staying at the Long Beach Lodge again!! One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in!`

I stayed two nights with my husband, my sister and her husband (and their little dog). The reception was warm and welcoming (Sammy was cheerful and helpful), the cabin was beautiful and had a full kitchen and private hot tub, the surf lessons were a blast (Robin was patient and knowledgeable) and the marine adventure tour was wonderful (Josh was a fount of knowledge about the local flora, fauna and history). Dinner in the main dining room was delicious, including going out of their way to help with some of the food sensitivities my sister and husband have. We couldn't have asked for a lovelier holiday to the west coast.

This is our second stay here; this time we choose the Rainforest Cabin (it was on special). We had such a fantastic time... we did the marine adventure, we did a kayak trip, we tried surfing...all was excellent. We were welcomed with champagne for our anniversary. I know that we will be back soon...even though it is a hike from Ontario. If I had any reservations it was the food, it was good, but not great. I am looking forward to the beach patio opening soon, for some more casual fare to have outdoors. All in all though, it was a really fantastic destination.

Thank you for your review, I am glad you had such a active holiday, there is so much to see and do in our area. I am sorry you were not completely satisfied with the food. If your meal is not completely to your liking, please speak to your server, as we would much rather correct or replace it, than have you leave disappointed. The Sandbar is now open and serves a wonderful summer, beach type menu.

We will look forward to your next visit from Ontario, it is always good to stay longer!

Just stayed at Long Beach Lodge June 13 and 14. Did a lot of research and certainly glad we ended up picking the lodge. Cox bay is by far the best beach to stay on if you want to hear the surf and play in the waves. The bay also seems to be cleaner than chesterman.

With regards to the resort itself, the resort was excellent, but there is always room for improvement. But lets start with the good points.
1. Unbelievable location, right on cox bay. Make sure to get a room with a view of the ocean. We had the room with partial view on the north side, and you could definitely see the ocean. A real bonus if you are a surfer and want to see how the waves are rolling. Make sure to get up early in the morning to explore the beach at low tide. Wildlife galore in the tidal pools.
2. Rooms are top notch. Gas fireplace, little balcony, corkscrew, full shower and jet tubs, king bed was excellent. Robes and rain slickers are provided as well which would be a bonus in storm season.
3. The patio bar serves food during the day, and there are a couple places where you can even bring your own wine and sit on the paio chairs which we did. In fact, i fell asleep in one of the chairs listening to the waves! Bring a few bottles of wine with you for walks on the beach!
4. Restaurant overlooks the ocean and has many panoramic views of the beach. Spectacular.
5. Surf club at top of parking lot was handy. Board and wetsuit rental is a little pricier than in town, but they let you change boards mid rental, which makes it very convenient. Wish the hot tub was next to the beach though!
6. Pizza was excellent. Make sure to try one.
7. Surf. Best beach of the main public beaches - non park, and i went to them all. Always seemed to be something working, no matter time of day. Simply amazing.

Minor issues/room for improvement
1. Food at the restaurant is a little pricey, and the butter for the crab was errantly swapped with oil, and we waitied far too long for the real butter! Not sure how that could happen but stuff happens i guess. Training day perhaps?. But one meal at the restaurant is a must, just for the views.


Overall, an excellent experience, and would definitely stay here again. Staff was wonderful and friendly, providing excellent tips on things to do and what to see.

Room Tip: get an ocean view. 2nd floor or higher so you can watch the waves. Partial ocean view rooms on south...

Thank you for your very detailed review, future guests will really appreciate your comments. I am happy that you enjoyed your visit.

If you ordered crab, it is indeed pricy, although the price has know dropped back to more reasonable levels. I number of restaurants stopped ordering crab because of price. There were two issues, poor harvests and the mainland Chinese, taking most of the crab at crazy prices.

I hope you may visit again soon.

When you turn off Pacific Rim Highway, onto the drive to Long Beach Lodge Resort you can tell someone is doing whatever they can to make it a beautiful experience to stay at this resort. I have to say the staff was fabulous to us. The food was delicious. Cox Bay is an unbelievably beautiful views, with a massive stretch of sandy beach, and the Lennard lighthouse in the distance adds to a perfect Westcoast picture. Perfect for learning to surf! No barnacles, or, rough coral to rip yourself on ...just beautiful sandy beach. Everything was such a good experience. The "great room" is a work of art in itself. We had two delicious dinners in the great room, watching the surfers hang out on the waves for as long as they could until it got too dark. You could see they didn't want to give it up, and get out of the surf!
OMG if they have it, try the blueberry pie!. AND, my latte was one of the best anyone has ever made me, now that was a surprise, too!
Kudos to the staff who make you feel like you're exactly where you should be.
If you go for it in the ocean they have a rental shop on site for full suits & boards. Lessons here, too, or, just walk the beaches all day, or, hike in the forest, or, sit and stare out at the mesmerizing constant rollers. Dreamy. Thank you Long Beach Lodge Resort, it was such a special weekend!

Room Tip: an ocean view room or one of the rainforest cottages. Either way is fabulous, just depends on your p...
