If you want to stay at a place that is clean, scenic, and has it's own cooking amenities, this is the place! Right on the beach on Vancouver Island. There is no restaurant in the resort, but many are nearby. Instead they have a well-supplied kitchenette, dishes, cookware and dining area. Great for a retreat where you take care of... More

We had a great time at Pacific Sands Beach Resort. The staff was friendly, the facility was excellent and the views of the ocean and sunset were amazing. We especially enjoyed walking on the beach. We would come here again.

Would stay again for sure. Kitchen in 207 was very small and could use a bit of work but the studio suite had ample room otherwise. The proximity to the beach made this great. Walking the white, sandy beach was a few short steps away.

This property is in a fabulous bay, perfect for surfing and boogie boarding. Fun for all of us from the 4 year old to the 65 year old. We had a beach house which was perfect for 6 of us. A short bike into Tofino.

Excellent.We try to go once each year.Tofino is a great area to visit.Lots to do even in the rain but we have had some brilliant weather in August and September.Gets quieter after the schools are back in Sept.Worth a trip for storm watching in mid winter,rates are cheaper also.

Let's understand that you're paying for beach access. There's no question that having a room just steps from brilliant Cox bay beach is a remarkable way to live. So as long as you're cool with paying $300 a night AFTER labour day for a one bed/one pull-out with a barely functional kitchenette and a bathroom so small you can't enter... More

Highly recommended. Staff very helpful and friendly. Immaculate grounds and rooms. Stayed in a 2 bedroom with a kitchenette. The kitchenette had everything you needed but could use updating. Beautiful location, right on the beach. Liked the location best. Did not like that pets were allowed off leash on the grounds, not pet owners were responsible in looking after their... More

Lovely property but I would not stay again in ground floor studio. Lack of privacy with people walking by and looking in. However the service was great, the rooms very clean, the bed comfortable and the scenery stunning!

Wonderful views from our rooms easy to walk directly onto the beach, excellent staff team who were relaxed and friendly. Ambiance was quiet and peaceful which gave a feeling being relaxed and comfortable. All close to downtown Tofino and excellent restarts and pubs.
