“Great Vacation Spot”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

We have been coming to Ocean Village for years and years and years. The recent renovations to the two bedroom cottage we stayed are fantastic! New floors, kitchen, fireplace...... Ocean Village has always been our favourite place to spend spring break with the kids. The cottages are wonderful, the grounds are amazing, and the scenery can't be beat.

The most beautiful and affordable option in Tofino. We all had a blast and the weather (February) was incredible. The cottages are unique, clean and offered many of our new members a true Tofino experience. The staff is personable, hardworking and will tend to any needs. The location and scenery are magnified by the well maintained grounds. Numerous bald eagles nest on adjacent properties and we watched them daily. Immediate access to the beach was our main reason for staying at OV, however, we found out that within a short walk you can find yourself secluded among the rugged coastline. Dont be afraid to explore!

Surf rentals are short walk away. It takes 5 minutes drive to town and many restaurants are even closer...(try Tacofino, Wildside grill)

We were looking for accommodation that would distract us from the mundane life, Ocean Village delivered and surrounded us with comfort and beauty. There is no better value for your money! A++ we will be back soon!

Room Tip: Most have ocean view... hard to choose.

Stayed in lower suite ...be prepared to make friends with the guests staying above you as you will hear every sound and conversation they have ! There were families with kids above us ,so the jumping off the beds and shrieking was especially fun . We did not have enough hot water for a bubble bath either night ...wondering if the upstairs guests used it all first.
I thought there was sofa bed in living room...only 2small foam sofas .....my 14 year old hung off the ends ...probably not adequate for anyone over4 ft. It was snowing and cold ...a fireplace would have been lovely but the heat kicked off on our last night ...nearly froze ! Slept with several layers of clothes on!
On the plus side -great organic toiletries in room ,fully equiped kitchen,cheapest spot on the beach ,friendly staff ,only 3 kms into town,pool and hot tub. We made the most of it and had fun .
Best advice ..get a single cabin to yourself then it would be awesome !

What a weekend! We were first checked-in with great service by an very informative front desk clerk who gave us tips of which trails/beaches to walk and went straight to our room! It was better than we had expected because we were told we were going to be in the second row. Yet, this room was on a perched up hill and had a fantastic view overlooking Mackensie Beach. The room was tidy and was very 'cute'. Perfect size for the 3 of us! We were able to cook all of our meals in the unit for the kitchenette was well equipped. They even had extra supplies in the office. Housekeeping the next day came and gave us extra coffees for morning and the evening - even decaf. Then we went with a surf school for a lesson and straight into the jacuzzi and met other guests who seemed to really be enjoying their time in Tofino. There is nothing like Tofino's weather though - make sure to bring rain gear and your sunglasses!!! We will definitely be back in Tofino and Ocean village!

This resort makes its visitors be outside and socialize with others. The rooms are minimal. We stayed in an upstairs room. It had no television and no computer. The resort sits on a beautiful natural beach. One can walk up and down and appreciate the purple and orange starfish and the mussels growing on the rocks. Once a week, the resort hosts a crab bake. This is a can't miss experience. Yummmmy! The heat pool is nice, but dated. Also, there are coin laundry facilities on site. Guests all sit and socialize in the bbq area. It's minutes away from a bike rental and a grocery. You'll need a car or bike to get into town.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the unobstructed view rooms! They are in the front row of houses.

If you want to relax to the sound of the surf this is the place to be. With no tv, radio or phone, Ocean Village is the place to go and relax. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and we were fortunate to get a great deal on our 4 night stay. We were glad to return to this resort and will hopefully be back next year.
The room was arranged so we would have been comfortable for 4 people but it was nice for a couple getaway.
(And if want to bring some reality with you there is WiFi.)

Room Tip: We have in the past stayed in the 1 bedroom but the studio was very nice too. Although the studios a...
