My husband and I began visiting Pacific Sands in 1986. I now come alone and love it just as much! The staff are very friendly, caring, and extremely eager to please. It's a place where I feel 100% safe, and as if I'm in my second home. I particularly love hearing the waves day and night and being able to walk right out onto the beach. The sunsets are gorgeous beyond description! The peace and quiet are true gifts that I value very much. Keep up the good work Pacific Sands!

It rained every day but I love this place rain or shine. The room was great with gas fireplace and breath taking views. There was a full kitchen and complimentary wine and chocolates. The resort has outdoor gas firepits and so much more.

Front of house (Reception) probably the best I’ve encountered, enthusiastic and so helpful. The resort is well laid out and the suites are really well equipped, if you intend to stay on site and not wander too far. Getting into Torino, ahh well. Be prepared for a one hour wait for a taxi, only supplied by Whistle app and its three taxis! Or Hiring a bicycle at $45 per day. Or Walking the 90mins. Or Using your own transport and struggling to park. That said Torino does offer about three good places to eat and drink and a few walks along the coast.

Dear Chris S, Thank you for sharing your recent experience with Pacific Sands. I'm thrilled to hear our Guest Services team is the best you've ever encountered and that you enjoyed our well-laid-out resort and amenities. Regarding our location, we are a five-minute drive away from the downtown core of Tofino. As you stated, parking can sometimes be a little tricky to find in the Summer, but I can personally attest you can always find somewhere to park if you check the different streets off the main strip. For those that don't want to drive, the Whistle Ride-Sharing app has about 5 to 6 additional drivers in Tofino, and I have never waited more than 20 minutes. Furthermore, the app allows you to schedule your trips, so if you know you're going out for dinner at a specific time, you can book a time slot and get picked up exactly when you want. It's also about a 25-minute bike ride into town from our property. With all the above being said, yes, we are the furthest located beach away from the downtown core, but Cox Bay is also considered the #1 Surf beach in all of Canada, so we're quite happy with that trade-off. Tofino boasts about 20+ mouth-watering places to eat, drink, and socialize and is quickly becoming a culinary hot spot in Canada. It is worth the trek for those looking to have a nice dinner from our property. Thank you again for your feedback; we hope to see you again in the future. Sincerely, Markus McRurie Marketing Director

We stayed at Pacific Sands last weekend and had a fabulous stay! Friendly staff, incredible location on the beach and so many great on site amenities - bbqs, fire pits, bike rentals, saunas etc. We would highly recommend staying here and will return for sure.

I visited the resort with a group of friends and stayed in the two bedroom ocean view lodge suite. The suite was perfect for 6 people! The kitchen is stocked with basic cooking supplies that you need. They also provide yellow rain jackets! we loved the jackets because you can never predict how heavy it will rain in Tofino.

As usual, Pacific Sands did not disappoint. Cannot beat this location or the resort. The beach walks, trails, socializing by the fire pits, are all awesome. The staff are incredibly helpful and responsive, and the new rooms are a good option to make it a bit more affordable. Overall another excellent experience, about our 8th time here, and we will be back again!

Arrivied in early and was accommodated with an early check in, the room was gorgeous with an ocean view, the property is the best in Tofino and would only recommend staying at the Pacific Sands. Amazing staff, best location and best rooms hands down. Will be back.
