My wife and I spent our honeymoon in an upper studio on the waterfront. The hotel gave us a nice postcard and a bottle of wine for our occasion. The room smelled wonderful like a wood cabin. The shower and bed were so comfortable... and those are really the most important parts when finding suitable accomodations. There is a small but full kitchen. Coffee maker microwave and toaster all worked great. Our studio was on the waterfront we had a great view of the ocean. The beach is only a few steps away which made for great pictures. The area was very quiet and enjoyable. Tofino is only minutes away. The pool is large and perfect temperature and a nice sized jacuzzi tub.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return kn our anniversary

For so many reasons...when we decided to renew our wedding vows (after 10 years of marriage, almost 16 together) we knew we wanted to have the ceremony in a place that would be symbolic of all we have overcome as we have celebrated life's ups and triumphed over the downs, and an injury to a family member (one we are grateful wasn't fatal). We knew the ocean and all it's powerful glory would be the perfect partner in our vows, and the vibe in Tofino would help make the whole event more than memorable. But where to stay? Camping, not a good choice since a wedding dress came along for the trip. We stumbled upon Ocean Village online...how to express how glad we are that serendipitous discovery happened!? Driving onto the property is magical, to see the quaint little cabins all lined up with the ocean waves crashing on the beach just mere footsteps away!!! Everything was so clean, and the lawns so beautifully kept, the natural beauty of the area is perfectly blended with how the buildings are laid out...the kids (10 and 9) were besides themselves when they finally saw the building with the pool and hot tub!
To the front desk we go, and there we meet Kim! Who was so patient while we hoped to be able to move from a garden view to an ocean view cabin. Not only was she patient, but she made it happen! Cabin #8 became our home for the next few nights! We arrived quite a bit before the 3pm check in time, and were quite content to wander by the ocean until our room was ready, we certainly didn't expect anyone to have to rush because we were anxious. But Kim took our cell number, and said she'd call when our cabin was ready. We walked by cabin #8, and were so happily surprised to see a lovely young lady already working on getting it ready for us. We walked along the beach for what was less than a 1/2 hour, and our cell rang, our cabin was ready! Above and beyond customer service to say the least!
Walking into the cabin was all I hoped for! Big bed for us, two pull out style beds for the kids, a beautiful bathroom, with a huge tub, complimentary shower products, lovely towels, and room to spread out our own toiletries. Full kitchen stocked with all you'd need for meals (equipment wise) and some very yummy coffee! Our dog even had some treats waiting, and a dish, and a towel which became his place to dry off from the ocean side walks. On the table for us, a complimentary bottle of wine and a congrats card for our vow renewals. Cabins are so clean, nice laminate floors that are easy to sweep, and electric heat!!! The location, out of town while simply being a quick drive into town is quite the appeal as well!!!
The emotions of the trip for us ran high, our vow renewals were significant in recognition of all we went through, Kim helped tie a beautiful bow around it all, with how much she simply seemed to care that we were well taken care of. The kids spent so much time in the pool, they loved it!
Thank you Ocean Village for allowing us all the memories we hoped would be created by this trip.
PS: reading this back to my hubby he simply said "Kim is so awesome, I can't say enough"
For us, Ocean Village offered it all, family friendly surroundings, perfect customer service and memories that for lack of a better cliche will last a lifetime. Even for our little shih tzu, who while running on the beach got to practise being a real dog!!!

Ocean Village is the perfect place for our family getaways! The recent renos on the cabins make them cozy, inviting, and have all the amenities we need. The staff is super friendly and keep the cabins and grounds clean and well maintained. Plenty for the kids to do with the pool, hot tub, and the beach just steps away. A bonus is the BBQs that are available for guests to use. We have stayed at Ocean Village 4 times in the last 3 years and I can't see us ever staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Any suite or cabin is great but the front row is heavenly! Steps from the beach. Definitely worth...

Thank you so much to Ocean Village, the upper studio was so great and well equipped. I haven't slept so well in a very long time. The bathroom was a brand new, very stylish reno. I was so impressed with how equipped the suite was and how nice the body wash products they supply are. Delicious coffee was provided and fresh daily towels. I will definitely be coming back to Ocean Village.

Room Tip: I think any of the cabins would make for a good stay.

Our trip to Tofino didn't start well. It was dark when we arrived and we drove our 4x4 into a ditch so far that it had to be towed - the roads in Tofino are not well lit with enormous ditches on both sides. Other than that the town is absolutely wonderful. The hotel staff was exceptional. They have done everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible and helped us resolve our car problems promptly and painlessly. Our cabin was clean, cozy and pet-friendly as advertized, and the beach is just a few steps away. The property is very well maintained and there are always fun things to do during the day as well as at night time. This place is perfect for family-oriented travelers as well as for couples and groups of friends. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, but try to get a cabin in the first row - the ocean front one. Also, if you are...

Two years in a row my daughter and I have visited Ocean Village. This will now be an annual trip! It has become our favourite part of the summer. This year we were able to snag a cabin on the beach (unit 47) and it was fantastic. Three nights just wasn't enough though.
Camp fires on the beach, BBQing, kites, hikes, sand castles and swimming.
Thank you Ocean Village, we will see you next year!

We spent 4 nights at Ocean Village in cabin 37/38. I am in a wheelchair and take up a fair bit of space so we spoiled ourselves by taking both cabins in a beach front "beehive" to accommodate me, my husband and our teenage kids. Think we'd have found one cabin for 4 of us far too squashed, even if I wasn't in a chair. For 2 people, the Cabins are absolutely ideal. Very clean, everything seems (perhaps is) new, kitchen has all you need, cosy. Terrific access to the beach, and stunning views.

The Cabins are not particularly wheelchair accessible and they have no disabled adaptations (which we knew in advance) so I took my own kit to make sure the bathroom would be suitable etc. I have some mobility over short distances with crutches which undoubtedly helped ensure we had a fantastic stay there.

Pool was much enjoyed by the kids, but wasn't accessible for me- the ladders are vertical (easier to use angled steps). I did enjoy some time in the hot tub tho. Pool area is very tricky to get in and out of in a wheelchair

Not Ocean Villages responsibility, but other readers may not know (as we didn't) that locals in Tofino refer to the month as Fogust... For good reason!!

I'd have given 5 stars if it was a little more accommodating for wheelchair users. Canada is SO good at accessibility "stuff" it's surprising that Ocean Village is relatively poor in this regard.
Otherwise it's a fantastic place and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
