Lovely relaxing stay, very comfortable rooms, friendly staff, beautiful beach. It may be a little more expensive than other accommodation .... but I think it was worth every penny. Pacific sands is great for couples, families, and groups of friends, if I go back to Canada I am going back for sure.

Great location right on Cox Beach. Room was clean. Bed was very comfortable and the pillows great! I love down pillows and hate those phony kinds so I was real happy to find the ones I love. Love the fireplace in the room. Kitchen and bath a little dated but I didn't care because of the location of the resort.... More

We had a power outage in the early afternoon upon arrival & the power did not come back on until early next morning. We had no hot water & had to fend for ourselves to find food as Tofino only has 2 restaurants with a generator. While power outage is not within their control, they should have alerted guests that...

Dear Natalia U. Thankyou for taking the time to share your experience. The unexpected power loss came from a fire at the Port Alberni sub station affecting our whole area. We did ensure while the power was out that we had sufficient candles, flashlights board games cards and in suite entertainmet and all resort supplies for guests. We also updated... More

One of my favourite places to stay in Tofino... and anywhere! Been coming for years... will keep coming back! The location is unbeatable and well worth it for a romantic getaway or even a couple nights of comfort after a surf adventure up island. Treat yourself!

This is set in a beautiful location on the beach. Our family of 4 (teenager children) had a lodge, which was effectively a small house. We enjoyed being here but there were small issues which I wouldn't have expected from a quality place such as the shower fixings not being secured to the wall. The bathroom in the master bedroom...

Best location and views of the Pacific ocean, surf, surfers and sunsets and the sounds of waves to put you into a Zen state of mind! Great local beach and trails. Rooms all have amazing views and balconies to enjoy watching waves and surfers. Lots of surf schools around to give it a try right there!

Pacific sands is a little piece of heaven on Earth. I've stayed there a few times now and will be returning again in the Fall. The location is beautiful - ocean views on a stunning bay. The rooms are literally footsteps from a beautiful beach that calls for long walks at sunset. The rooms are situated well to take advantage... More

The property is very nice but the rooms are extremely noisy, we stayed in a downstairs condo and you could not sleep past 7:00 because of all of the stomping and pluming noises from the neighbors. It would be okay if you were not paying top dollar ...$330 dollars a night is NOT WORTH IT!

We drove across Canada and chose to stay at Pacific Sands for the final 3 nights. From reception to check-out the staff and service is top notch. They think of everything! Kids had fun at daily camps!
