“Nice Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

It has always been a great spot, the grounds and units a nice, the staff is good, the gazebo and BBQ area is great. My son had a great time in the surf and at the beach, the dog loved it, we had a good time and would like to return.
The only thing I would like to see happen is to have a bit of an update on the living room/kitchen furniture as this has obviously been well enjoyed by by many and is just plan in need of replacement.

We have been going to Tofino for many years now but have never stayed at the Pacific Sands Beach Resort until now. We were in a beautiful beachfront suite - lower level. The suite had all the amenities that we needed including a kitchen where we prepared our breakfast and lunch each day. We spent our days walking the beach, exploring the tidal pools, watching the surfers and taking lots of photos. We had great views of the beach and ocean from the suite. The fireplace was a nice touch on those rainy days. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Elena at Front Desk. It was a perfect stay. We can not wait to visit again.

It is a great resort right on Cox Bay one of the most beautiful beaches near Tofino. We have been going there for 10 years and we will continue. The accommodations are excellent and so is the service.

Pacific Sands is it. I have been coming to Pacific Sands for about 35 years, and have never been disappointed. Will never stay anywhere else.
The setting is second to none... Exceptional staff... Perfect place to decompress.

A truly magical experience. Our suite was one of the few with a hot tub & it certainly enhanced our stay. Incredible, awe-inspiring beach!! Excellent service, specifically from Elaina (sp?) at the front desk who remembered our names and made fantastic recommendations with regards to places to eat and things to do. It was our 10 year anniversary and the resort staff all signed a card that was waiting in our room along with wine & chocolates - a very special touch! We also loved that there was a shuttle available in & out of town so we could go in and have a few glasses of wine with dinner without worrying. Good thing we used to too as there was a checkstop on the highway on our first night!! The free popcorn and DVD's were also a bonus on chilly evenings. The view from our room was incredible!
The Sunset Point walk was unbelievably beautiful & we wish we could have stayed longer. A cozy, quiet and special place!! Absolutely no complaints except we wish we could have stayed longer!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms looked like they would have spectacular views - don't think you could go wrong...

My husband and I just returned from 4 days at Pacific Sands, and it was a beautiful place. The suite was well-equipped for cooking meals and relaxing, the separate room was spacious (although we had to keep our binds shut as it was ground level with the parking lot where people were always walking by) and the view of the beach was amazing. The beach was quiet and gorgeous, with lots of surfers to watch tidal pools to explore, and views to experience! We brought our dog along which was great as well - a very dog friendly resort. The beds were very comfortable - an added bonus as I am almost nine months pregnant. The movies and games available to borrow in the lobby were helpful on the rainy days. My only complaints are it would have been great to have a little cafe or restaurant on site (we had to drive into Tofino for everything, which was just a short drive), and the housekeeping services were quite minimal once you checked in (just the bed made daily and one change of towels over the three nights). Will definitely return again.

Great place. The beach is magical rain or shine. The sunset is outstanding either from the beach or up at the point. Sunset point is a must no matter what time os day. Itf the tide is coming in the crashing of the waves is mesmerizing.
