Alfonso began working with us in August 2019 as our Laundry Supervisor and is now our Assistant Housekeeping Manager. From the moment we hired Alfonso, we knew that he would be a wonderful addition to our team. Originally from Mexico, he started out his hospitality career over 15 years ago working on cruise ships where he held the position of Steward and was promoted to the supervisor of the department. In his spare time, he enjoys playing soccer and swimming- although he finds the Canadian waters a bit chillier than those of his hometown in the Mexican Pacific! If you visit the Lodge you are sure to pass him in the hallways hard at work behind the scenes to ensure our property is spotless. Say hello to Alfonso on your next visit!
Erica has been a member of our team since July 2020 coming to us originally from the UK! Erica has a diverse background which includes the UK Military, events, guest services and restaurant management. Learning to surf is what brought her to Tofino, but rather than riding the waves, she much prefers to watch them on the beach with a good book! She is one of our Guest Services superstars who loves greeting our Guests upon their first arrival to the Lodge. Her welcoming personality and sense of humour are a couple of things that make her so special. Next time you are at the Lodge be sure to say hello to Erica at our Guest Services Desk!
Chance has been a member of our team since March 2010 where he started his hospitality career as a laundry attendant! Chance is originally an East Coaster, born in New Brunswick and came to Tofino 'just for the summer' as many have done in the past. It didn't take long before the west coast captured his heart and he realized he has a passion for surfing! In 2013 Chance became our Surf Club Manager which is the perfect job for him, a friendly yet knowledgeable and skilled surfer! If you have not yet met Chance stop by the Surf Club for a few surfing pointers or one of his famous hot chocolates!
