“Great Location, Condos like home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

I love staying at Cox Bay Report in Tofino, and have stayed with them half a dozen times. The best thing is the location, steps to a wonderful quiet beach, great for sunsets and wave watching. It's like a home away from home with a great kitchen with everything you need to cook for yourself. Comfy and cozy bed and finsihing touches. They offer great deals in the off season for people who subscribe to their newsletter. The only down side is the front desk customer service is a little slow and reluctant.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom room are more private but the patio is not covered. The rooms on the right when facing...

We rented the one bedroom condo at Cox Bay Resort:
1. No view at all except into the neighbor's condo. I think the 2 bedroom condos may have a view.
2. Have to shut all the blinds to have privacy since we were surrounded by other units looking into ours.
3. They shut down the hot-tub and exercise room at 9pm! Felt like we were in a senior's complex.
4. Their "observation" room for storm watching is tiny, sits 4 people and the chairs are not even arranged to face the ocean.

I am so glad we got this reservation on a deal, I would have been really mad and felt ripped off if we had paid full price. There are much better places to stay in Tofino for better prices.

Room Tip: Definitely don't get the ground floor one bedroom!

My wife and I spent a night here. Access to the beach walking in amazing as well as the view from the veiwing longe. Exercise room and hot tub are available for all guests. The price is right for anone wanting a selfcontained unit to live in. Complete kitchen, cosy living room and comfy bed. Large, deep bathtub and shower with bathroom floor heated.

Room Tip: The closer to the beach the better.

If the weather is good, you’ll be happy staying just about anywhere in Tofino or Ucluelet. If it’s bad, which it often is in winter, and you find yourself staying indoors, you’ll be glad you chose this comfortable resort. Units are spotlessly clean, spacious and tastefully furnished, with well-equipped kitchens, so if you don’t feel like braving the elements, you can enjoy a meal at home and a DVD in front in the fireplace. (And if you have trouble with the DVD player, staff will pop over to help.)

There is no restaurant on the property, but it takes only two minutes to walk via the beach to the adjacent Long Beach Lodge Resort. Its restaurant is on the pricey side, but the food and setting are enjoyable, and you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving.

Cox Bay is pleasant for strolling, but a 30-minute drive to Ucluelet takes you to the more interesting shoreline of the Wild Pacific Trail. Very nice walks and views there, especially if the sun cooperates.

We didn’t get to use the common lounge at the resort as it was closed for a wedding. No big deal, since we found our unit perfectly comfortable. The only negative is that because the front desk closes around 9-10 p.m. and there are no security patrols, you may be subject to the yelling and whooping of guests who let themselves into the outdoor hot tub after it’s supposed to be closed for the night. This happened on our first night, but thankfully, there was no repeat performance.

We held an early family Christmas at the Cox Bay Beach Resort this year. We rented two suites for ourselves and our adult children. We could not have had a more perfect holiday!! We set up our little Christmas tree, and the full kitchen in the suite provided enough amenities for us to prepare a full turkey dinner. The rooms are cozy and well-maintained (loved the heated tile floors in the bathroom!). The staff is friendly and provide as much (or as little) assistance as you need. The beach location is awesome - lots of open space for a long walk and little trails here and there leading to more secluded areas. I would highly recommend this resort for a family gathering of any type. They have a fabulous common room with big, comfy couches, a huge rock fireplace, a full kitchen, two large barbeques, and a great big table that would seat a large gathering. The only negative thing I would say is that my back did not appreciate the feather-bed mattress cover on the bed, so I didn't sleep as well as I would have liked.

Room Tip: Be aware that you have to transport your luggage a fair distance as the parking lot is up a hill fro...
