Poor customer service experience made for a disappointing stay. We missed out on using the Groto Spa since we were not told we needed reservations when we enquired about cost and access. The spa attended said she would follow up and did not. Overall resort was ok but service was lacking.

Stayed here two years ago in a suite overlooking the bay. This time we stayed in a suite near the swimming pool. Lovely room, upstairs in a small block of 10 rooms, nice bathroom, large balcony. Very comfy bed and great facilities although no air conditioning which during the hot spell while we were there meant w had to have...

Have been here many times. Beautiful views and friendly staff. Great location. Not sure I'd say it's the greatest ' couples ' place to go for a getaway.... The mineral pool is great however.. There was no relaxation or zen as they say. People talking loudly lots of noise. Was definitely disappointed that for a relaxation spa experience, I had...

This was our first time visiting the Tigh-Na-Mara Resort. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin. The cabin was indeed beautiful and rustic and had a lovely wood burning fireplace. The kitchen was sufficiently equipped and the bathroom amenities were good as well. My only complaint is that the cabin could have used a good dusting throughout. Rustic...which is what...

This is a resort committed to excellence in every area, from check-in to check-out! The beds were sumptuous. The restaurant food - presentation, portion and taste - all matched. The staff in every area acknowledged you, and asked if the could assist. Outstanding!

We like the location very much, conveniently located near the highway and shops are nearby. It's also close to the beach if you choose the ocean view rooms. However there are not too many things to offer or do at the resort. I am a golfer so i would go to Qualicum Beach or nearby to play.

Our first time here, and it didn't disappoint. We brought our 2.5 year old, and she had a blast. The tidal pools were a huge hit. Some of the other reviews state that this property is dated, well it is, but it is very well maintained. The landscaping was kept, the furnishings all maintained. I have no complaints. We would...

We had a beach view room with incredible views. The room was nice with a full kitchen. After being on the road foe 3 weeks it was nice to cook our own meals. Bathroom was small. There are 3 premium grocery stores in town to buy supplies. The cabins looked nice, but I recommend an ocean view room. The gazebo...
