This was our first time staying at Pacific Sands, spent three nights in an oceanfront studio. The room was good, view could not have been better and the balcony was a good size however there is a slight problem in that unlike most resorts in the area, this is not a no smoking property and people are allowed to smoke...

The suite was clean and comfortable with warm updated decor. The view is spectacular. Our dog could not get enough of the beach. The staff was welcoming and accommodating! The market in the lobby has everything needed for meals.

Excellent as always! We love coming up there. We always feel right at Home. We also like recognizing the staff that have worked there for a long time. The grounds are kept up wonderfully and are very pleasing to the eye!

This was our fifth stay at PS and once again we were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly. Our housekeeping staff acted on our every need with smiles and a positive, friendly attitude. We were travelling with our pup and when we arrived in our suite there were treats for her, as well as her own set of dishes... More

The location is magnificent, the property beautifully kept, customer service was wonderful. The personal touches (movies, free popcorn and hot chocolate) are lovely, and the staff are knowledgeable, friendly and provide a real homey atmosphere. The units were equipped with everything we needed. Can' wait to return!

This hotel (and tofino in general) offered us a complete rejuvenation of mind, body & spirit! I read somewhere below a complaint about there being no elevator - there isn't. And the wifi isn't great, and the front desk isn't open 24 hours either BUT, that's the best part - the longer we were here the more and more relaxed... More
