Ocean Sands provides everything you could possibly want: a great location near the beach and a few minutes drive to town and its amenities, a stunning view, a clean, well appointed and spacious suite, comfy beds, a seasonal pool with a year round hot tub, and friendly, accomodating, caring managers.

We were really fortunate to find this property. We arrived in Parksville without a reservation April 9, 2015. We decided to stop at the Information centre for hotel suggestions. The girls there were very helpful, and timing is everything. I explained that we had not booked ahead of time and that we needed 2 nights accommodation. One of the staff... More

The managers are the most down to earth people you could care to meet. Went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The room was breath taking, clean and well equipped. We really felt like we were at our summer home, not a hotel. If you want a spa and nightly turn down service, this... More

Very nice clean complex,with great ocean views, managed by two of the most pleasant proper managers I have encountered. Kristy and Darcy are just the right kind of people to be doing the job that they so ably do. The unit owners are lucky to have them looking after their affairs. We definitely will be returning. The Ocean Sands units... More

Extremely clean and well equipped. Darcy, Kristy and the rest of the staff are super and most accommodating. Rates are more than reasonable. Even though the "No Vacancy" sign was out for many nights during our month long stay, it was very quiet and relaxing. We'd recommend this resort to anyone.

Extraordinarily clean accommodation. One usually has to wash dishes etc before you can use them when provided in suites with kitchens - not at the Ocean Sands Resort! Everything was spotless. Super friendly owners and staff at the Ocean Sands Resort. They were very willing to provide lots of information and took the time to make sure we had all... More
