Whilst we loved our stay at the resort, we hated the bedroom in the Lighthouse Suites. There is only one window, and it's on the outside walkway facing the parking lot and restaurant area. This would be fine, but the only window blinds are heavy room darkening curtains, which you have to keep closed since everyone can see right into...

Great location right on a beautiful beach. Great for walking and presumably for swimming in summer. There is also a walk to a raised point nearby where the views are terrific. This is a self catering resort. We stayed in a two bedroom, which was very well laid out with each room having a bathroom. The living area was a...

We were a group of six staying over New Years. The fire works were fantastic and right at the beach. Loved the room, view and the hot tub. Enjoyed walking on the beach, the weather was really nice so we missed out on storm watching.

I bought a Travelzoo voucher back in November and we booked for the end of January, in between the snow storms. The resort is located on the beach in Cox Bay which is very quiet and lovely. We had a one bedroom suite right at the end so we could see the waves from our suite. Suite was well equipped...

My husband and I booked this trip 3 weeks prior to his diagnosis with glioblastoma. We thought we might not be able to make it secondary to chemo and radiation scheduling. However, Cox Bay staff worked with us and let us change reservation dates to arrive/depart a day early. We can only say positive things about this facility, the location...

Dear Harleyridermarc, Thank you for your review. The TravelZoo promotions are a certainly a great deal and do sell out quickly, especially when booking with a pet! I’m glad you enjoyed the Tofino coffee provided, it is freshly ground and delivered to the resort on a weekly basis. Hopefully you and your wife are able to return to Cox Bay...

My partner and I have been to the Cox Bay Beach resort on multiple occasions. Sometimes with family and other times with friends. The location is impossible to beat. The property is right on the beach so you are literally steps away from the ocean. The suites are beautiful, modern and have a very west coast feel. There is a...

Great location and set up. Really like this place - stayed here for the first time. Usually stay at Pacific Sands but tried this place and love it! No restaurant here but it takes 5 minutes to walk to Long Beach Lodge next door where there is a great happy hour.
