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.

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...

It was pouring rain ...could not find a lodging for the night. Last chance phoned this resort and they had one cabin available. The hostess was so warm and friendly. Walked into our cabin ...it was lovely...clean and lots of space. We started a fire in the fireplace and had a glass of wine on comfortable furniture. We had all...

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...

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...

Where to start... yes it is on one of the most beautiful beaches around, that being said, the cabins are old and not well kept up... The cabin we stayed in had issues. The patio has sunken so for anyone with walking or stepping issues, trying to get through the main door was a huge task. The bed was hard...

Have stayed here many times before. Cabin number 1 needed a littl cleaning. Dishes were a bit greasy we needed to put them through the dishwasher.....not hard! Could also do with the cobwebs removing. However after that the cabin is right on the beach and has pretty well everything you need. We upgraded from cabin 9 as that one didn't...

Amenities were a bit tired; cabins are in a great location with a beautiful beach and bay. The cabins were in need of updating and repair, but the were spacious and cozy for those seeking a "cabin on the beach" experience. The kitchens were pretty well equipped, enough so that when we wanted to cook our own seafood meal from...

Facilities are disgusting and badly need an upgrade. 3 toilets, 2 female showers for hundreds of people. $20 deposit for a key to access dirty, stained showers. Tiny ocean side camp sites are packed together with people walking on top of each other to get to their site. You can hear everything going on in other tents and realistically you...

If you’re looking for a resort, a sanctuary to escape the city, relax in comfort and enjoy the peace and quiet of the ocean and rain forest, look elsewhere. If you are between the ages of 18 and 25 or so, back-packing through Vancouver Island or surfing on its west coast beaches, and don't mind crowded conditions, MacKenzie Beach Resort...
