I booked a one night stay here with my family after spending a week in Tofino so we could break up the travel. It was a hidden gem. It reminded me of the place in Dirty Dancing. Cute cabins spread out, sports court, great spa, fitness centre and pool and beach access. Also the highlight was probably Cedars restaurant. I ordered the short rib and gnocchi and while we enjoyed the food in Tofino this was probably the best meal we had all week. We will definitely go back for a longer stay.
