Stayed for two nights last week to celebrate a birthday. Stayed in a ground floor one bedroom unit closest to the beach. Unit featured a well appointed kitchen with a gas range, nice sized living room and dining area. The bathroom was just as nice with lovely bathrobes. The bedroom featured a comfy king sized bed with lots of pillows...

The resort protects it's lighting by putting 200 lb rocks in front of some of the lights in the parking lot. These are about a foot high and difficult to see at night. They do considerable damage to the front of your car if hit, as I discovered the hard way. Other than that, this resort is very quiet, clean,...

We spent 3 nights here after a tour in Western Canada and could not have found a better place to wind down, relax and enjoy the ocean. The facilities / rooms / fit-out is great. Close to the beach. The resort isn't too big either, it doesn't get crowded around the hot tub or other (limited) common facilities. Short :...

Most of the reviews for this property were very good to excellent and our experience followed form. The 1 bedroom unit was very well appointed with lovely decor and furniture. Everything worked well and the heated bathroom floor was certainly a treat. The nearby beach was fabulous with wide sandy stretches, big waves, and wonderful views. If you are wanting...

Pretty happy to have a vacation in our own back yard. This place is incredibly dog friendly and has great facilities for surfing and showering off. Bring your bikes as Tacofino is only a short ride away. The price,it a bit on the steep side. I guess it's just strange to pay paradise tax so close to home.

Our trip to Tofino was fabulous, and we really enjoyed our time at Cox Bay Beach Resort. The shared amenities were great - hot tub, proximity to the beach, barbecue, storm watching room. The only thing is that if you are taking your dog, and book online, just make sure to send them an email in advance so that they...

Firstly, Tofino is one of my favourites spots on the planet and luckily I have been there many times to enjoy the beach, the wild West coast-ness and surf. We are big fans of Chesterman beach, likely one of the best beaches on the planet. Cox Bay is just South of Chesterman and is equally beautiful and much less developed....
