The hotel

Reflecting the passion of the Pacific is not something that the Black Rock resort takes lightly and if you’re fond of swollen seas, cosy nooks and plenty of indulgence, then you’ll find it all here in bucket-loads. This is one of the finest oceanfront properties on Vancouver Island and from the natural light-enticing architecture to the spiritually-uplifting spa services; the whole experience is all about harnessing that awesome organic energy. Fine dining at the Fetch Restaurant, splendid cotching at the Float Lounge and one of the most incredible terrace areas ever, all do their utmost to compliment the superb natural environment.

Two years ago my wife and I got married at Black Rock Resort. For our two year anniversary we stayed in Tofino for the week and decided to come to our place of marriage for a few drinks to celebrate. We drove in snowy conditions for an hour to get there for the posted 3 pm opening of the Float Lounge. When we got there there was a chalk sign saying Float Lounge opens at 5 pm today. No notification on their website of a change of hours. No notification on their instagram page. I went to the front desk to explain the situation and how much we had looked forward to celebrating and was told "Sorry, no, we open at 5 today." Nobody cared about our ruined day or the fact that we had spent thousands of dollars there getting married, just a callous indifference. Sadly we will NOT be going back for future planned anniversaries. Read less

I went to this resort as a gift I was giving to my lady for her birthday, as the trip drew closer I realized I was going to propose to her there. I called ahead of time and talked with the team there (Caleb, Isaiah, & Monica), all three of them were incredibly helpful in making the stay a very memorable one..... the fact she said yes, and that Ucluelet is absolutely gorgeous didn't hurt either. But that is not to take anything away from them, each went over the top to see to it the room was great, transportation was handled, and that anything we needed was accommodated. On top of that, the room and resort itself were absolutely stunning, in great shape, with excellent food/drinks, atmosphere, and crew. We will certainly be returning. Thank you so much to the whole team, you all knocked it out of the park. High expectations were exceeded. Cheers, -Joe Read less

We stayed at Black Rock as part of our 10 day Vancouver Island trip and this was one of the highlights of our visit. Staff were very welcoming and the room very comfortable. The views from the balcony were superb. We made this our base for whale and bear watching. The Wild Pacific Trail is only a short distance away which I would highly recommend… Read more

The views from the balcony were superb. We made this our base for whale and bear watching. The Wild Pacific Trail is only a short distance away which I would highly recommend for the spectacular scenery along the route. Food was very good although I would say the Float Lounge is just as good as the restaurant. Would highly recommend a stay here. Read less

Came to the Black Rock Oceanfront Resort to celebrate a Special Birthday night. The hotel is beautiful. Our room was fabulous. The beds are heavenly. The Restaurant, not so good. Our server had no personality. She mentioned they had a new Chef since the last one was focusing on steaks. Well sadly the new Chef seems to be more about the art presentation on your plate and not about the food. All four of us had something different, and all four of us left disappointed. The next night we thought we'd try the lounge and that was no better. Food was overpriced and poor quality. Maybe Black Rock Resort should look for a new chef Read less

Spent a few night here with the husband for my birthday. Was just amazing. The resort is just beautiful. Spectacular views all around. The property has amazing walks and trails so nice to just get out in the sun. The room was very large and amazing amenities. Was totally wonderful. Short drive to tofino made a wonderful day trip.
