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

We came here for a couple of days during Spring Break, with two moms and their kids, for the 2nd year in a row. We all had a great time! The beach is easy to get to and the kids enjoyed playing soccer on the lawn and sitting in the hot tub. They have beach toys and movies that you... More

Ocean Sands is a fabulous place to stay. Incredible ocean views, clean, beautifully appointed units and warm, friendly hosts who go more than the extra mile to make you feel welcome. It is a place we love to go back to again and again. We walk on the endless beach and through the adjacent Provincial Park watching the eagles, geese,... More

We only stayed one (short) night at this place, but the reception was super warm and very friendly. The unit was extremely clean, well stocked, and the view was great. We enjoyed our stay (with three kids) and there was plenty of room for all of us.

We stayed in a studio suite over the Christmas vacation time and had brought some wine and appetizers. While the suite did not have any dishes or cutlery, the managers provided us with all we needed. We found the room warm with the fireplace on. The view from the suite was spectacular and access to the beach was very convenient.... More

Our end-of-year getaway was made very comfortable both by the natural surroundings, including a wonderful panoramic beach view, and by the spacious and well-equipped condo. The couple either managing or owning the complex were really nice also. We will definitely be back!

Clean, peaceful, and welcoming; our vacation retreat could not have been better. The icing on our cake? Watching Eagles and crows perform air show acrobatics from the balcony, with surf and sea lions serenading us at night.
