Beautiful location with a view of the ocean. Some beautiful places to visit around the Tofino area and Pacific Sands was a good home base. The beach outside the hotel is perfect. We enjoyed the gazebo and had BBQ's most evenings as well as having a fire.

Excellent in every area except wifi access not great. The Lighthouse suite was spacious and comfortable with all the comforts of home. Great balcony overlooking the surfers and the sunsets. Service from time of arrival to departure was excellent.

Our four night stay at Pacific Sands - our 6th in the last 10 years - was perfect. We are two couples and stayed in a 2 bedroom beach house (our third time). The well appointed kitchen allowed us to make our own breakfasts, snack and nibble in the afternoons when we'd done our long walks down the amazing beach... More

Great location, well-appointed rooms, stay in the beach house for a "taste" of the ocean. They'll rent a 2-bedroom as a 1-bedroom in slow periods and at a great rate. All the comforts of home with the addition of 2-fireplaces, long walks on the beach , floor-to-ceiling windows for fabulous views of the beach and ocean. Great staff!

It was my eighth visit to Tofino and sixth stay at Pacific Sands Resort. It was a great opportunity to come back and the resort was better than ever. The improvements made with the additional of food items for purchase at guest services and the espresso bar added to the convenience for staying at a property with no onsite restaurant.... More

The rooms are excellent and there is a wonderful restaurant two doors down in another resort that is a 5 Star with a view of the ocean, book at beginning of sunset! Pacific Sands has Cox Bay which is private, quiet and serene, each view from your... More

Fabulous resort, services, & surrounding scenery, surf, and rainforest trails...perfect place to enjoy a peaceful, restful, rejuvenating break from the everyday routine...Tofino & its many amazing beaches are some of the most beautiful & magical on earth! Highly recommend Pacific Sands as an affordable, cozy, and west coast getaway.
