My husband and I got married at the Resort in early September. I can not even beging to say how great our stay is. To start of Heather the event co-ordinator was very helpful through out the entire planning process. She responded to all my emails with questions and concerns, thourgly and in a timely fashion. As a hands on Bride I was pleased to here that almost anything was do-able and she gave lots of great tips and information on other Tofino Vendors.
When it came time for our wedding weekend, we along with our guest checked in the day before the wedding. While all the staff were very cheerful, there should have been more of them on. Some of our guest had to wait 10-15 min before being helped. The only complaint I had was with the room, we booked a oceanview thinking we would be in a room over looking the whole ocean. We did this as most of our guest had booked beacn front rooms and we wanted a bit of privacy. When we got to our room however it was partial ocean view and partial parking lot view. While a beautiful room not what I had imagined for my wedding, would have been great for any other occasion. I have noticed however on their website that it now specifies it's a partial view. This matter did get cleared up as my In-laws agreed to switch with us. The beach front room is simply amazing, the beds were so comfortable. Guest you stayed in the rainforest cottage were surprised at the size and how despit being of the main road how private it was. A couple of our guest had dogs as well and coult not get over the dog bed. bowl and treats waiting for them.
Heather was there to meet us as soon as the room situation got cleared up and was very calming in making sure everyone was on the same page for the next day( I honestly can not say enough about her, my wedding would not have been what it was without her) Later we talked with the restuarnt staff about having dinner with our 20 guest, they accomadated us as best they could as the dinning room would not be able to we all gathred around in the great room. This ended up being a much more fun relaxed atmosphere for everyone. The menu in the Great Room is limited however, and anyone that had fish and chips the chips were very overcooked.
As far as our wedding day goes, all the staff were amazing! We were asked several times by the manager how our meal was during the reception, Laura was our server both for our wedding and the night before in the Great Room and she is awesome, someone give this girl a raise. All night staff would come and congratulate us and make sure all was going well. The food was fantatsic all our guest couldn't get over the meal. They were also very accomadating to my sister who is a very picky eater! Basically anything we requested was promptly attended too. The continetal breakfast as well while not huge does satisfy. The selction on teas, fruit and breads hit the spot. Overall we had a great experience here with a few minor blimps but hey nothing is perfect. Our guest still can't stop talking about it, we will def be back next year.
