Spacious condo...loved the "home-away-from-home" experience. Never heard any road noise which is always a plus when we travel. Loved the close beach access. Staff were a delight! Would not hesitate to stay here again, and highly recommend the Ocean Sands!

Excellent condos with view and the caretakers are very good hosts. The units are a little dated but are clean. Our hockey club stays there every September renting most of the units available. The location on the beach is nice for the walks when the tide is out.

The bedrooms were large and comfortable. We were back from the beach area but still had a great view of the ocean. We made use of the strata... More

The condo was very clean and well equipped. The managers were more than ready to help or accommodate the guests at any time. This was our second time here and will gladly return again or recommend it to anyone.

Comfortable and clean. Good beds. Friendly and helpful manager. He suggested a nearby place for a light supper, and provided information about area questions we asked. The condo was clean and welcoming. Wished we had more time to stay longer!

I usually stay at a major brand hotel chain, but since there wasn't one in Parksville, I went to Trip Advisor in search for an alternative. Based on the reviews I read of the Ocean Sands, I decided to give it a go. I couldn't be more pleased with the personal attention I was given by Darcy and Kristy (I... More

When you drive into the resort property you are surrounded by trees. There is assigned parking for each condo. We stayed there a few years back in a 2 bedroom 1bath condo.That had a full kitchen supplied similar to your own home.We had a balcony overlooking the beautiful water and saw a few cruise lines go by in the distance....

This was our second time to Ocean Sands Resort and will not be our last. Our suite was perfect. Everything you could possibly need. The view is fabulous and the pool was perfect. The manager Darcy was the best. He made every effort to keep us happy. Can't say enough good things about him and the resort.
