My wife had previously as part of conference and volunteered to book us for a little getaway. I had previously stayed in Parksville at a variety of resorts and locations. I was a little skeptical put pleasantly surprised. The Units are all well kept and nicely furnished with most of the modern conveniences. The unit we stayed in on the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during Spring Break, with young kids. We were impressed with how updated, spacious and well-equipped our unit was. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and accommodated our request to switch to a ground floor unit. We were also pleasantly surprised to have an ocean view, even though it was classified as...

We have been very pleased to have stayed at Ocean Sands the last 4 winters and had told a friend last summer so they decided to stay there this winter and asked how we'd found such a great place. All you have to do is bring your clothes and food & is very well equipped. Very close to shopping etc.... More

I stayed at Ocean Sands Resort while I was attending a seminar. The room suited me perfectly - I only regret that I did not have more time to enjoy it. Beautiful view of the ocean and I could hear the waves landing on the beach. It was just great! And an amazing rate for off season! Thanks so much.

Enjoyed our one bedroom ocean view suite, but it was a bit noisy from upstairs guests so next time we will stay in an ocean view 3rd floor. but otherwise all was fabulous! There was tons of room and the kitchen was well equipped. Weather was great and ocean was beautiful... remember your rubber boots to really walk on the... More

Really enjoyed our weekend getaway at Ocean Sands Resort. Excellent value. The suite was spacious and very comfortable with all the amenities of home. My number 1 fear with staying away from home is not having a comfortable enough bed. I give this one top marks! The location is great for exploring the area. Visited the Spa next door for... More

We lived in a bright, roomy one bedroom ocean side suite for the month of January to escape a little of the Alberta winter. The ocean side was a wall of windows, with a beautiful view. Nice to be able to lounge in our pyjamas sipping our morning coffee and watch the surf and the birds and occasionally seals. Eventually... More

Needed a break from the cold and snow of Alberta and we were not disappointed, What a beautiful place to rejuvenate. Lovely beach, green grass and trees. We rented the one bedroom ocean unit which was very spacious and had everything we needed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would consider renting the ground level ocean unit next... More

We travelled in late January- early February and found this place by luck. We rented a two bedroom rental unit. The unit was very clean and nicely laid out, warm and cosy (they started the fireplace early for us so once we checked it, it was warmed up). The location is quiet, just on the edge of Parksville and my... More
