I have stayed at OVBR three years in a row. I've stayed with a friend once and twice by myself. I have always stayed in the one room cabins on the beach.
I cannot say a bad thing about my experience staying there, be it with the staff, the accommodations, or the setting. What's not to love about a gorgeous sand beach mere feet away from your front door?! Lots to do and see within minutes drive, and I even played a few rounds of golf at the Tofino course, which is a nice, full length, 9 hole course. But remember to bring bug spray if you're going to play!
The lack of tv, radio and phones are great if you're looking to "switch off" for a few days. But if need be there is wifi, which during the NHL play offs, is nice to be able to listen to a game while sitting on the sun chairs overlooking the water.
If there are any drawbacks I'd say the bathrooms could use a touch up. Maybe new showers, but that's it. The bed is great, the kitchen area is great for smaller meals and the place is always clean.
If you're thinking of spending some time in the Tofino area, this place is awesome. Prices are starting to climb over the three years I've been going, but I've booked it for one more stay again next June.
