The best part of Tigh-Na-Mara is BY FAR the Grotto Spa. Can't say enough about the facilities, service and staff. Do yourself a favour and enjoy the Dip & Dine! Was disappointed with room "upgrade" to Oceanview suite - of course the view is lovely, but you will enjoy better amenities with a room in the Jedediah Lodge, most notably,...

Spent a very nice Saturday night with family at one of the TNM cabins. The resort has a great location and is well laid out. Amenities are a little date but certainly functional. We found the staff to be attentive and accommodating. The restaurant provided good food with cheery but service on the slower side. Overall a great weekend exploring...

The place is beautiful but the kids eat free is a scam because at the end of your stay you get charged and addtional $15 per kid per night for your stay. Don"t recommend being in a bottom floor unit as you can hear noises and water running until bedtime and then again in the early morning.

29 years ago, We honeymooned at Tigh-Na-Mara. There were a half dozen log cabins and a dirt trail to the beach. It was very rustic and a great experience in 1987. Fast forward to 2016-Wow! now a five star resort with all the amenities, and still one of the best beach experiences you'll ever have, tide goes out forever! We...

I came here with my Aunt for a girls getaway, we were very excited as we had heard so many great things. The staff were friendly but the grounds need to be updated as do the rooms. The grounds were very dusty and not maintained or manicured at all. There was no air conditioning in the room, just an old...

We stayed at this resort and were really happy with the resort and our accommodation. All the lodges are just steps away from the beautiful beach. The rooms were beautiful and the balconies spacious. We ate in the restaurant our first night and it was very good. We enjoyed the special biscuits and the second night we wanted to stay...

I booked this hotel for my niece's annual birthday getaway, we were very excited for this trip as we had heard so many great things about the resort. We arrived early at the hotel since we had a spa reservation at 1230, the receptionist was very helpful and gave us a key to sit by the pool while we waited...

This resort is my absolute favourite! The beach is incredible and sandy. There are amazing hikes closeby. The pool is great and I love the wood trim inside the pool house. The staff are so friendly and I absolutely love it here. It is a perfect visit coming with children on a family trip, with friends, or a romantic getaway.

Whenever I go to Tigh-Na-Mara I have a great experience and can't believe I didn't stay longer! The upper ocean view rooms are wonderful to wake up to; the beach is sandy and long; the water is warm and the resort is an unpretentious west coast casual and family oriented. Service is always top notch. The meals in Cedars Restaurant...
