First time to Tofino despite living on Vancouver Island as a child. After a day at the Long Beach Lodge we were already discussing coming back. Enjoyed everything about our stay. The staff are unbelievable - thanks to Mike, Davin, Chance, Garrett and Marcus. I loved talking to the guys in the bar about surfing and Tofino. Taking a surf lesson is a must, but some conditioning before hand is really a good idea. I did no preparation for my surf lesson and struggled (still had a blast and highly recommend it). Marcus takes the most amazing photographs, and Chance and Garrett are two of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Garrett did a great job of teaching my daughter and me how to surf and made sure we had a great time. Walking along the beach is gorgeous, and there is a very pretty boardwalk trail at the end of the beach that leads out to sunset point and some incredible views. All meals were incredible. The fish and chips at the Sandbar Bistro were some of the best we have ever had. At breakfast we really enjoyed the eggs Benedict, the pizzas were terrific, and the dinner entrees were also great - we never had a miss (however I was not a fan of the local Pinot Noir). The room was very nice, and it was great to be able to walk right out of our room to the beach or Sandbar Bistro. In our room was a nice sized refrigerator, and when we go back we will be sure to pick up some snacks and drinks for our stay. We felt we were staying in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and another couple staying there said the exact same thing. We were fortunate with the weather for most of our stay, but I could imagine if you get unlucky with the weather your stay may not be as much fun or as beautiful as what we experienced.
