“Fabulous Again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

This was our second time staying at one of the villas. They are spacious, tastefully decorated, have the most comfortable beds, and of course the perfect view from our sitting area and private balcony. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The resort has a number of comfortable upright bikes for their guests to sign out. One of our highlights was cycling into town. What a great way to explore Tofino! And of course, each morning and evening included a walk, with many photo opportunities, along Cox Bay or out to Pettinger Point. It was fabulous!

Room Tip: We were five women, and the two bedroom villa worked perfectly. Housekeeping brought in a very comf...

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful hotel. It's a one bedroom suite with a fully equipped kitchen, pull out sofa with a super thick mattress so it was very comfortable. The suite was very clean, and provides very thick, plush white towels as well as Aveda toiletries. Never heard any noise, staff was super friendly. We were in Tofino for 9 nights but unfortunately beyond the first 4 nights there was no vacancy and we moved onto Best Western (Tinwis) afterwards, and that only made us miss Pacific Sands' perfection all the more.

A quiet, perfect getaway to see nature. Definitely will return.

My husband and I stayed here at the end of May and had a great time. The service was great and we were able to check-in early which was a bonus. The room was fantastic and location was superb. A restaurant on-site would have be excellent but it's only a short drive into town. I wish we were able to stay more than one night - will definitely be back one day.

What could be more perfect, pounding surf, sandy beaches, excellent accomodation and service all to share with my girlfriends. Really enjoyed riding those comfy bikes along the roadside trails and sipping a glass of vino on Pettinger Point while watching the local surfers catch a wave. My second trip in two years...truly spiritual and uplifting.

Visited Pacific Sands Resort for 3 nights in July. From start to finish the staff were so aware of our stay and their respective guests. All was calm, no stress, and attention to detail second to none (without being in your face) was a breath of fresh salt air. Waterfront views and amenities were well above expectations. Great steak/salmon barbecue catered in for a reasonable price, in a casual ambience.
,...need to get back here!!

Room Tip: All are great positions

We stayed three nights at the Pacific Sands Beach Resort with our two boys and loved the experience. Our little beachfront place was perfect (but i did miss not having a dishwasher). The kids loved walking on the beach and the selection of videos and games was perfect for our nightly activities. The resort seemed to think about everything including the handy raincoats in the closet.
We also very much appreciated the fact that they arranged for surfing lessons for our boys with the Surf Sisters.

Room Tip: If you do plan on buying groceries don't wait until Tofino as it is very expensive.

We have visited this area for the last 8 years and have visited but not stayed at the Pacific Sands as it did not have an on site restaurant. We finally decided to stay this year and the resort exceded our expectations. The location right on the beachfront is amazing for hiking and ocean views. It is so close to the in town restaurants that it took only a few minutes (5) to drive in enjoy meals. All the resort staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was well appointed, very clean, quiet and comfortable. We have already decided to stay at the Pacific Sands on our next annual visit.
