Had another fantastic stay in one of their Beach Houses. Great for the family. Kids had their own room. Dog loved the heated floors. Great view of the beach and surf. Nice to see Tofino Coffee in the rooms and the JBL docking stations for iPods. Great size kitchen and towels for the dog after a walk on the beach.... More

Our recent stay at this resort was wonderful. Oceanview , lots of beach to walk and close to Tofino....that's what we were after and this resort delivered! Oceanviews from the bedroom, livingroom and kitchen as well as the balcony meant we could watch the surfers anytime. The kitchen was well equipped and beds comfortable. Everything was very clean and inviting....we... More

The beachfront location is magnificent, and the rooms generous and beautifully appointed. I've visited many times, but my son and his family live in Tokyo Japan, hadn't. There are a lot of beautiful beaches in Japan, but they were blown away by Cox Beach and the area. I have a B&B on SaltSpring Island, and can truly appreciate the care... More

We have stayed here 2 times - 2011/2012 and are looking forward to our 3rd visit 2013. We just love it here and have decided to make it a yearly visit. When you get out of your car and head to reception you hear the roar of the ocean. From our 2nd floor - 1 bedroom unit we had a... More

We booked the 2bedroom beach house at Pacific Sands for 6 of us. The beach house was fabulous. There was 3 levels and the top level had a king bed with a soaker tub and also shower. The middle level had a full bath and 2 queen beds and the bottom level had a half bath, kitchen, laundry, eating area... More

My husband and I stayed here with a friend and our dog. We were in Tofino for a wedding. I was truly blown away by our ocean front house/condo. Beautiful, well appointed - perfect for all 4 of us! Wonderful views, great beach access, quiet, comfortable. Yet approachable and not stuffy. Bedding/linens made me feel like I was at home.

My wife and I stayed here in September 2012 for 3 nights in a mainfloor suite. Beautiful view of the ocean/beach, friendly staff and an amazingly well supplied kitchen. The resort stocks the local Tofino Coffee which is tremendous as well. It's a quick trip into Tofino (about 10 minutes or less) and the surrounding trails are perfect. We will... More

We took my wife's sister and husband to visit Long Beach area and stayed two nights in a two bedroom Ocean View Lodge Suite. The weather was great and complimented the great view of the beach and surfers. Very nice beach to stroll along and watch the birds and people - bring binoculars. The suite and kitchen (large fridge for... More

This resort is beautiful. Every room we have stayed in has beautiful views. The scenery is gorgeous, from the green and lightly treed grounds to the rolling waves on the sandy beach, just steps from our room. If the weather were as hot and there were palm trees you would think you are somewhere tropical. Every room here that we... More

We have been returning to Pacific Sands on Cox Bay since 1994 and have NEVER been disappointed. Whether it's a fabulous sunset or snow on the beach all of your senses are engaged. The sound, sight, feel, of the beach so close is truly amazing. If you love the feeling of getting away from it all this is the place... More
