Black Rock Oceanfront Resort
What We Love

- Drift Spa’s treatments use kelp from Pacific waters, natural sea oils, and rainforest botanicals

- Pets are allowed, with a fee of around $25 per night
- Reservations for dinner at Fetch restaurant are highly recommended
- Breakfasts are wonderfully hearty, but not included in the room rate
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
With a highly dramatic setting on a pine and rainforest-covered hillside overlooking the wild Pacific Ocean, this secluded 133-suite luxury resort was constructed to compliment its setting, using natural materials like rock, wood, glass, and water to great effect. Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows, king-sized beds, state-of-the-art kitchens, fireplaces, and spacious bathrooms with rain showers and soaking tubs. The restaurant, Fetch, offers views and Pacific Rim delicacies like freshly shucked Outlandish oysters, squid ink risotto, or sockeye salmon.
In the Area
If sampling the sublime seafood at the restaurant isn’t enough, try your luck snaring the catch of the day yourself on a fishing charter with an outfitter like Big Bear: the Pacific waters around Ucluelet are legendary for salmon and halibut. If beach-combing is more your scene, head for one of Vancouver Island’s beautiful coves, like 6-mile Long Beach, a spectacular stretch of sand and surf in Pacific Rim National Park.
How to Get There
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in March/19. We booked a dog friendly 1 bedroom trail suite with a view. The entire stay was fantastic. Our room looked over a breathtaking view of big beach. Room amenities included a well stocked kitchen, good sized fridge, living room with large flat screen tv and fireplace. The bathroom was massive, with heated granite floors, soaker tub and oversized shower. The bedroom had a king size bed facing the ocean.
Service at the hotel and restaurant was outstanding. Staff were friendly and attentive. We ate dinner at the float lounge one evening and had breakfast at Fetch one morning.
Lots of great hiking around Ucluelet along the Wild Pacific trail. Excellent secluded beaches great for exploration. Took day trips to Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park. Restaurants in Ucluelet served great food and had a home town feel.
Booked three nights in an ocean view cabin and had a wonderful stay. Despite some of the other reviews we found the rooms well cleaned and the staff very friendly,accomidating and proffessional. Isaiah the concierge was perticularily exellent to deal with. He was well spoken and made us feel welcome. Thanks for an exellent stay folks. We will definetly be back.

Ps:Im not alowed to post our picture but i really want to.
The view is stunning and the rooms are beautifully appointed. There is a nice little beach a short walk away. We could hear noise from neighbors but the ocean waves helped drown it out. Unfortunately the restaurant was really disappointing.
We stayed for 3 days in their Ocean view suite- Room 214 from March 1-4 paying roughly $389- each night. Shockingly, Housekeeping was deplorable on day 2. Tina the housekeeper knocked on our door at 9'ish am to ask if we wanted our room cleaned. We said yes and left. We came back and to our utter disgust, our bathroom was left in deplorable conditions. The toilet was not sanitized nor cleaned and left a filthy mess. We have the picture proof which I've attached. However the check list she left indicated everything was clean?! Contacted front desk to report the incident and spoke with a young man with a thick French accent. Not once did he apologize. He said that he would let a supervisor know as soon as it was convenient for him?We said ok. 2 hours later we returned from lunch. Toilet was appropriately clean but not once did a supervisor contact to apologize. All we found in the room was the housekeeper's note with an excuse: "Sorry but I always clean the toilets last and forgot". Disgusting housekeeping practices with no quality control nor follow-up care from a manager. I would have expected more for $1000 for 3 days.
The hotel is well equipped and the staff are wonderful. All problems were dealt with quickly and efficiently and they were very helpful for all our needs. The hotel is a little difficult to find as there are no signs on the main road and only a discrete sign on the road the hotel is on. A great place to stay especially if their is a storm blowing in or the sun is shining. Great sunsets from the dining room.
