Non guests using outdoor shower for personal shower, one down to his underwear soaping his private parts, shower located just in front of our deck. (wife not impressed). Bag of dog waste under bench that is used for viewing. Someone left something by outdoor shower, not sure what it was, maybe underwear or mask, was there for over a day and still there when we checked out, the shower is located on the pathway to the beach. A board from the deck demising wall fell down, wood for the demising wall was rotten

The resort is situated in a great location and is more suited to families, although I'm not sure how families can afford the high rates at this resort. I would consider other resorts for couples looking for amenities - dining, etc.

Dear Jako, Thank you for sharing your recent experience with Pacific Sands. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our stunning beachfront location, and I agree, it's unbeatable in Tofino. I am, however, disappointed to hear that you did not find value in the onsite amenities provided. This is not the norm, and as quite visible on this review page, we've always taken pride in offering everything guests would need to be comfortable at a Beach Resort. In regards to pricing, I can appreciate that Tofino as a whole in Peak Season (July, August) does have high rates. This is when the weather is best, and of course, this is when Tofino and Pacific Sands are in the highest demand. Our rates have always been a direct reflection of our beautiful beachfront location, our modern and luxurious suites, our staff's ability always to go above and beyond, and our wide array of onsite amenities. I do apologize that you did not feel this way, but we do appreciate your feedback. My hope would be that should you return to Pacific Sands; we would go out of our way to offer you a flawless stay that exceeds all your expectations. Please also feel free to email me directly at markus@pacificsands.com should you wish to discuss any further concerns or issues. Thank you! Sincerely, Markus McRurie Guest Relations & Marketing Manager

We enjoyed a four night stay at this lovely resort. Can't believe this is Canada. Everyone needs to go! Shoutout to the front staff and all the other departments at the resort. Everyone is super helpful, friendly and kind. The beds are awesome, I need to buy a mattress like that. Clean, tidy and lovely sound of the ocean from our room.

My husband and I stayed here during our mini honeymoon - What a beautiful resort!! Even with covid a lot of the amenities are open. Extremely clean and all the precautions are being taken here. We had a beautiful 1 bedroom Oceanside suite. They kind of face other rooms - Next time we would try for a beachfront for more privacy (We we’re lucky to get in on short notice!) This is a family friendly resort, has a great atmosphere and can certainly be quiet and peaceful of course! (however kids are running around - if your concerned about some noise) The beach is absolutely stunning!!! And right outside our front door. You can walk for miles! It’s also fun to be able to watch the surfers. The sunset trail to Pettinger Point is sooo beautiful and tranquil. Absolutely loved it! Definitely a must do!! The beds are very comfortable with nice linens, very nice new bathrooms. It’s nice having a kitchen too! We highly recommend staying at this resort for a relaxing getaway :)

Traveled with my teenage daughter. The location cannot be beaten in Tofino. Very convenient wit non site surf rental and on site grill. Only negative was the fire pits are sparse - 4 in total for hundreds of guests. This is an important issue for the resort to solve as good access to a fire pit at might in the cool summers, would be a really great bonus. The resort hands out smores kits on arrival - the kids were very excited, but we could never get a fire pit to roast smores which was too bad and would have made this place better than perfect. Other than that, a fantastic location and experience and I would return again and again.
