We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a friendly, happy place. Our suite was spotless, we appreciated being able to check in early, and enjoyed a good soak in the Resort's hottub after all the beach walking and a few bonus days of storm-watching. The sun is great too, but when the wind and waves kick up this is the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during peak season in one of their pool suites. The suite had one bedroom with a queen bed and then a sofa bed/futon pull out in the lounge room. I slept on the sofa bed and found it surprisingly comfortable. The kitchen was actually a full kitchen with a fridge, stove, oven... More

My wife and I read all the reviews of this resort, went there with an open mind and must say that if anyone visited here and gave a bad review, shame on you.

We found our 3 bedroom cabin to be clean, well stocked and very comfortable to host a group of 7. There is a fabulous view out to Mackenzie beach, and is steps from the ocean.

To finish off our road trip of BC and Alberta we spent 2 really enjoyable nights camping at The MacKenzie Beach Resort in Tofino.

We stayed in a one bedroom cottage. Besides the 2" gap between the walls and floor the door to the bedroom literally fell off. The room smelt of old socks and the floors had never been cleaned. Slugs would come through the gap under the wall at night. When you pay over $200 a night you expect to at least... More

As a procrastinator in making a camping site reservation, we found ourselves without any options for the August long weekend in Tofino! Thank god for MacKenzie Beach campgrounds.

Tofino has only 3 choices for camping. A government camp ground that is always full, Bella Pacifico (over priced) and this dump. After driving our 30' 5th wheel through those very winding narrow roads we found MacKenzie RV park to be the only place with vacancy.

Camping Small Tent: Beach front aspect very appealing however, this may blind you to the fact that the tent sites are too small and far too close together.
