It's a tradition. So nice to spend time as a family at the Pacific Sands. The view and the Ocean are terrific. Even when it rained we could enjoy the fire place. We hiked to the point when it was sunny.

My sisters, cousins and I return each year to Pacific Sands, Tofino, BC for an amazing week together! We hang out in the condo, hike on the beaches, cook together and enjoy ourselves immensely. We just finished our seventh reunion last week, and wish to recommend Pacific Sands to anyone and everyone! It is perfect! Thank you Pacific Sands for... More

The rooms at the Pacific Sands Resort are attractive. Some have spectacular views. All represent good value. The resort is pet friendly. Great beach. Vij's curries available for nights when you do not want to go out. Our 6th time. What more can we say.

The rain didn't dampen our spirits this past week while visiting Tofino and staying at Pacific Sands. The lovely yellow raincoats were ready and waiting and put into good use. Miles of Sandy beaches all within walking distance, lovely lookout point for the night when there was a setting sun and very friendly and helpful staff in all departments. We... More

This was our fifth or sixth trip to Pacific Sands and as always we had a great time. Lee stayed in one of the 2 bed beach houses and it was great to wake up in the morning to the sound of waves crashing into the beach 20 feet away. Really relaxed atmosphere and great walks - will be returning... More

We love it at the Pacific Sands. The only negative, and a small thing really, is that the light bulbs are not bright enough to read by. The location is amazing and the suites very well appointed otherwise.

For twenty years we’ve been visiting Tofino and, invariably, we return to Pacific Sands. There are more luxe digs and less expensive options, but the PS property, which sprawls across a huge swath of Cox Bay, makes it pretty special, much less dense than Chesterman just to the other side. Over the last few decades we’ve stayed in each of... More

Employees are very friendly, which includes housekeeping. The resort is very dog friendly, providing towels to wipe down the dog, food bowls, and a biscuit for our furry friend. We highly recommend Pacific Sands, and we visit pretty much once/year now.

The view from every room is personal and outstanding and the service is perfect! I love the small touches like the wine, chocolate and popcorn to welcome each guest and the raincoats in the closet. Each time that I have stayed there I have felt like I had my own beach front cabin!
