This is the 4th visit to Ocean Sands Resort and we have already booked our 5th for May 2015 . We just love coming here so peaceful with beautiful sea views. We are always greeted by great staff and the condo very clean and comfortable. There is plenty to do in the area and some good restaurants to check out... More

The location is right on the ocean with beautiful views and is located right on the beach. The managers are very pleasant and helpful and make you feel right at home. Our hockey club had 3 teams staying at this resort and we come back every year. The only negative comment is that some some the units are becoming dated... More

We had a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool, and the many trees and shrubs on the property. The hot tub and outdoor pool was very nice. Our suite was spacious and clean. We enjoyed watching T.V. on the new big screen T.V. It was a nice get-away for a couple nights.

Spent a couple of days here with a girlfriend. We enjoyed walks on the beach, relaxing mornings and evenings...and the views were amazing of the Coastal mountains and Pacific ocean... nice place, reasonably priced - no frills just solid accommodations... (owner owned condos). Free WIFI is always nice too! Parksville and Qualicum Beach are nearby for good food and some... More

This is our 4th consecutive year that we have enjoyed a full week at Ocean Sands Resort. Our 2 sons and their families joined us again this year. We had 2 condos, one up - one down and it works perfectly. Darcy, Kristy and staff were wonderful again. We shall be returning next summer!

I spent a week here with my family and enjoyed it. Clean, great location. Lots of other families and an outdoor pool for the kids to splash around in. This is very much a mid-market resort as opposed to a fancy resort. so there is little in the way of frills. This is also a good home base for checking... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff. When checked in we were given directions to our condo. The place was exactly like presented on their website. Very enjoyable, great views and very relaxing. The grounds were very tidy.

First time at this resort and it did not disappoint. Gorgeous location on the beach, extremely friendly and helpful staff, clean, large and well equipped suite and a great pool and hot tub. We have two little kids and there were lots of other kids for our girls to play with. We stayed in suite 113 which was a good... More

Had a wonderful time at Ocean Sands resort. Darcy was very helpful throughout the booking process in regards to the best unit for my group, sleeping arrangements, etc. View was amazing, room was very clean and comfortable, kids loved running around the grounds, playing in the playground, swimming in the pool. Great location. A great holiday.

Lovely stay at the Ocean Sands resort. Apartment was spacious, clean and bright and had everything we could need. Great to have an onsite laundry too. Office staff on hand pretty much all the time to answer any questions on the resort or locale. We overlooked the ocean and could be on the beach in two minutes. Lovely long beach,... More
