Stayed at the Beach House in mid December. Very solid built and comfortable & cosy. Great space for 2 couples and a small baby. Beach House is two bedroom and very quiet when doors closed. No issue with hot water. Power went out one night however generator took over. Kitchen very complete with utensils and dishes & glasses. Beach House... More

Our stay here ranked as the worst during our ten week trip in North America. I first tried calling to book a three night stay but was defeated by the language inability of the reservation person and her apparent lack of any knowledge of the property. I should have known better; if the telephone service is bad, there is worse... More

My first trip to Tofino: This resort was one of the best I've stayed at so far. The location is amazing, just steps from Cox Bay Beach...We loved waking up to the gorgeous ocean view from our Lighthouse suite. The full kitchen and cozy, separate living area made it feel like a home away from home. We would definitely stay... More

We stayed here in 2008, after being recommended by my auntie who lives in Vancouver. I have only got round to using the reviews on a Trip advisor and feel obligated to share a wonderful holiday. We stayed in the 3 bedroom house with sea views immediately on the beach front. The house was extremely well equipped everything you need... More

Best place to stay if you have a dog with you. The rooms are perfectly set up and the entire staff from front desk, to housekeeping to maintenance are welcoming and very helpful. We are return guests and will come back every year.

Very nice room and close to beach. The walk to the lookout out point is nice. You can really see the waves crashing in. The railings are high so the views are not blocked on the outside deck. Big windows so you can see the waves right from you sitting area.

The front desk service was excellent and the room was comfortable, well-appointed & clean. Housekeeping was good and discrete. Good location with terrific beach. A minor but nice feature was the video library by the front desk - an excellent selection of good films for the use of guests. Also, nice welcoming touches - in our case a bottle of... More

We love Pacific Sands and have returned many times. Booked it for next year. We are not surfers, but we love to watch them. We do cook, and they helped us with our equipment needs. Highly recommend it.
