Everything at this resort is top notch from the service to the facilities. We even had complimentary rain coats in our room! This came in handy staying on the west coast. There are no resturants on site however the cooking facilities are perfect with BBQ's on site for your use. The beach is fantastic, sandy and long with great storm... More

Enjoyed a great mini vacation with our 2 dogs in an ocean view ground floor suite. Very well equipped and clean room. Staff is wonderful. Loved the covered fire pit and barbques available to all. Best part is the location, right on Cox Bay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay here and look forward to our next visit. The location of the resort is outstanding and the staff are pleasant and helpful. We wouldn't stay on the ground floor of the beach suites building again as the noise from the guests above us- especially the first night- kept us awake.

Great location, great staff! Been to tofino many times but have never stayed here. We will definitely be back. The beach is fantastic for surfer watching and walking, awesome all around! Even our 14 year old son said he loved it!!

What a wonderful stay. More than any of the great day excursions we booked over spring break, we so loved our daily walks on the beach (rain or shine) to forage for sea treasures left by the tides. Thank you to the Pacific Sands for a relaxing beautiful vacation get away.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom/3 bathroom beach house and had a wonderful time. These are 2 floor townhouses with full kitchen, living room and laundry on main floor and 2 bedrooms upstairs, each with ensuite. Both floors have patios with chairs and the beach is literally just a few steps in front. The master bedroom faces the ocean and... More

On the best beach in Tofino, and I've visited them all, the only resort that has ALL ocean views from EACH room has got to be Pacific Sands. Staff, view, interiors all rate a perfect 10! I could not find a flaw.

We enjoyed our short stay at this resort. It is not as expensive as Wickaninnish Inn but the decor and luxury is not in the same category. It is a great resort for families and I would stay there there longer next time as you can cook. There is no restaurant which is too bad. It would be nice to... More

The venue and scenery were amazing. Being right on the beach and watching the rolling surf was the highlight. I wish they had a restaurant and they need to improve their wifi. Even so, a great experience at an excellent resort.
