I can't express how this place made my weekend. I wanted a romantic spot with a great view and this place was a crazy reasonable price for the value we received. My beautiful girlfriend couldn't stop staring out the window enjoying the beach that was literally on our doorstep. We had a nice fire on the beach under the stars,...

Firstly I'd like to say that the service received from reservation through to check out was personal, polite, and genuine. The manager, Dorothy, responded in detail to all questions asked and offered insightful advice to the accommodation that would best serve our families needs and budget. We stayed in Cottage 12. Breathtaking! - gas fireplace was lit upon our arrival,...

This resort is definitely my happy place and serenity! The number one thing that keeps me returning here, is how honest the owners are. It may be the oldest property in Tofino, however, the charm and warm hospitality has made me a loyal guests. Here, they do not do any false advertisement about the property and go out of their...

Yes, we are doing off season renovations. One large project we are tackling is our large indoor salt water swimming pool which is being redone. On your next visit we do want your opinion on all our changes and upgrades.

The best think about camping at Mackenzie beach is that they don't do reservations. If you get there and they are full, they will put you up in over flow until a better spot become available. You can almost grantee a place to sleep here when going to Tofino. The ocean/beach sites are vert very close together and very small....

Thanks for your comments on your camping experience at our Resort. Many customers like that we are a first come first serve campground as they can make last minute plans to come to Tofino and find a spot. Our pool and Hot tub do have a slightly green tinge but that is because the water is from a deep well...

After spending a lot of time online to source out the perfect property for a special birthday surprise for my wife, I cannot say how disappointed I/we were with the property - from the moment we drove along a very rough road, could not find the address on the property, then to walk into the two bedroom beach cottage I...

Yes, I agree our road does need some more maintenance, and the District does their best but the pot holes seem to appear almost overnight after it is graded. We are now in our slower season doing upgrades to the property and the cabins. The stairs have been repaired as one step had a little movement to it and as...

Mediocre Cabin. Clean, Bed poor. Exterior full of debris. Pool too cold to comfortably swim. Hot tub okay. Beach is lovely. This is very much too expensive for what is provided. Will not stay here again.

The cabins are rustic, but with maintenance being done on a regular basis they are cozy and inviting. We have replaced our beds in several cabins and do understand that beds are such an important part of your stay. Our pool temperature is kept at 82 - 83 degrees, but during your stay with us it did develop a leak...

We had planned a little trip to Tofino with some hopes of storm watching. This place was recommended to us by a neighbour. We arrived at this place in the pitch dark and the pouring rain. Signage could/should be improved. The road off the highway is riddled with horrible potholes (I expect this is simply due to the location, however...

Thank you for your honesty and comments on our Resort. For your large RV I can understand needing more than one site to accommodate you for sure. And yes the cabins are great especially for the off season when rates are lower. It is great to be in a beachfront cabin to watch those fantastic storms come in with your...

I recently stayed at the MacKenzie Beach Resort in there pool cabins. I didn't really know what to expect from previous reviews. I was pleasantly surprised with the cabin. It was large, clean living, dining and kitchen area. A deck with picnic table in the front. The cabin was not on the beach, but in a quiet area. The separate...

Pleasantly surprised is what we want to hear, as our guests satisfaction is what we are all about. Fires being allowed right on MacKenzie Beach is such a bonus, especially for those in cabins or camping sites that have no view of the ocean. The pool suites have been recently upgraded and the wifi has been upgraded as well. Hope...

Quaint little hotel right on the beach! Called ahead for a room and the girl was very nice. She held our room with no credit card. We had a cabin with a beach view, not a big room but the bed was comfy and clean. Draw backs were, hot tub was down and the pool although it was warm, it...

Thanks for taking time to comment on your stay at our Resort. The rooms are smaller for sure but what they lack in size they make up for by being cozy. The Pool had some issues for sure and is currently being renovated extensively. It is a salt water pool and our customers love it so much that we are...
