We stayed in Suite 40 - it was perfect for four adults. One room with a queen bed and one with a King. Very modern and recently upgraded. The Kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need. If you need more of something, the front desk is always helpful and willing to help. The Resort grounds were well groomed... More

First comment through the door was WOW. WOW for the view, for the décor, for the conveniences, and for the staff's friendliness and help... Just like being home, only a better view and a lot of beach to explore.

We have stayed at Ocean Sands several times usually with an ocean view, but being unavailable we had a pool view and had a terrific stay. Management make the stay great they are so helpful and pleasant. The king size bed was a treat, so comfortable. The unit was clean and had everything in the kitchen you need.

Unless you have directions you would never know this property was there tucked in behind the trees. Units look over the beach that is an easy walk down to the waters edge! We stayed in a nice Studio Suite which had a spectacular view of the bay. Management and staff were very helpful!... We would go back there for sure... More

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
