Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast is ideal for adventurers and lovers of seclusion, and this 41-room, 20-cottage lodge offers lashings of both. Rooms are more cozy than design-minded but most have spectacular ocean views (cottages are a luxe step up, with fireplaces and outdoor hot tubs.) The Great Room is the hub of the resort, a cavernous yet cozy space with Oriental rugs, a stone fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows framing gorgeous views of Cox Bay Beach. It’s also where guests can nosh on a Pacific Northwest menu heavy on locally-sourced comfort dishes like Clayoquot Sound crab cakes, seafood chowder, and sablefish with Asian greens and udon noodles.
In the Area
How often do you get to learn how to surf without even leaving your hotel? The resort’s unique Surf Club Adventure Center offers instruction in both surfing (Cox Bay Beach) and standup paddle boarding (MacKenzie Beach.) Take a float plane flight over stunning Tofino with Tofino Air, where you’ll be privy to a dizzyingly wonderful landscape of rain forests, ocean, lakes, and glaciers. If terra firma’s more your trip, take a bike tour around the island’s West Coast–Tofino’s Tof Cycles can deliver your rental wheels right to the resort.
How to Get There
From the moment we arrived to the time of leaving the staff were very friendly and happy. It was very easy to communicate with everyone. Rooms were clean and fresh. Meals were excellently prepared and courteously served. My family and I are looking forward to returning next year.
I have stayed at Long Beach Lodge before. This time I recently stayed there as part of a family group. It was a organized through Jennifer their Events Manager.
From start to finish we were all very happy with everything. We had a generous selection of rooms to choose from and booking was easy. We held two group meals for 23 people and the variety of food served ensured everyone found something of their liking. The food was prepared deliciously and was served piping hot and exactly on time.
The staff are all very professional and eager to make your stay perfect even with last minute changes and requests. They were even able to accommodate 10 of us for dinner on the day we arrived without a reservation.
Different activities were booked by different groups of people including surfing lessons and the Marine Adventure. Everything was so easy to book and just enjoy the activities.
I will definitely be staying here again next time I travel to Tofino.
The lodge is perfectly situated to make the most of Cox Bay beauty. The restaurant menu is limited but everything we ate was well made. The Bistro too was limited menu but delicious. Service was friendly but often slow, which is fine if you aren't in a hurry. The beachfront room we occupied was nice and clean, on the expensive side, but you are paying for the view. The little patio was easily viewed by the patrons in the dining room though, so not very private. Overall it was great for self-sustained beach vacation, although it is close enough to Ucluelet & Tofino, Long Beach & other parks, to make it easy to see all the area has to offer. I would recommend flying in, the road is a challenge.
Love the beach the restaurant is awesome the rooms are so beautiful my husband and I love sitting on the patio having a glass of wine watching the waves and the surfers we will come back here again the restaurant is fabulous
We stayed in one of the 2 bdr cabins. These are set back away from the beach a bit so if you want a nice view stay in the main hotel. The cabins are spacious and have all the amenities you'd be looking for in a family getaway.
Great beach access with beautiful views. Great dining options.
