Would give Pacific Sands 6 stars out of 5 if I could! Fabulous stay at a wonderful resort. Everything was perfect, suite was stunning and the staff were some of the best we ever had. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Fabulous location and amenities for families. The morning view of the ocean while drinking coffee was spectacular. We borrowed a bocce set for an afternoon of family fun and the sunset from Pettinger Point was a highlight.

Our family stayed here for two days of surfing. Surf Sisters is on site which is very convenient. We had a two bedroom unit. It was soundproofed from neighbour's, the view was amazing,the second bedroom in the back was quiet but master bedroom in front was extremely loud from

Dear Johanna, Thank you for sharing your recent experience with Pacific Sands. I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your Two Bedroom Suite, the fantastic view, and your surfing experience with the Surf Sisters team on our property. It is unfortunate that you did not sleep well, as most people come to Pacific Sands to fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves. Not only is it one of our main selling points, but it's also the best way to relax and recharge. Thanks again for your feedback! Sincerely, Markus McRurie Guest Relations & Marketing Manager

We had such an amazing time here - loved the relaxed atmosphere and the fact that our dog (who is huge) could stay with us. Being beachfront meant we could come and go as we pleased for surfing and the rooms were so comfy and clean. Would definitely book again next year :)

The ocean front suite was a let down as we really couldn't see the ocean unless we were sitting on the deck which we would not have done since it was fully in the shade on the North side of the building. After an earlier stay at a beautiful high-end resort it was disappointing

Dear Corri, Thank you for sharing your recent experience with Pacific Sands. I did want to take the time to address some of your above concerns personally. I did look into your reservation and noticed that you were booked into one of our One Bedroom Oceanside Suites, and not an Oceanfront Suite. These units have always been sold and marketed as only have a partial ocean view. I do believe there must have been some miscommunication during the booking process, which I do sincerely apologise for, as that is not the experience we would want one of our guests to have. In regards to the bathroom cleanliness, I will be sharing your feedback directly with the Housekeeping Manager, as that is not up to the high standards that we are so widely known for. I do apologise again for this. Overall, I am happy to hear that despite the above hiccups you were still able to enjoy the location and your stay with us. My hope would be that should you return to Pacific Sands we would go out of our way to offer you a perfect stay that would exceed all your expectations. Please feel free to email me directly at markus@pacificsands.com if you wish to go over any further questions or concerns. Thank you! Sincerely, Markus McRurie Guest Relations & Marketing Manager

Hi Carrie, so far we've only been booking them for June onwards, and they have your typical bathtub/shower setup but do not come with Hot Tubs. The new Two Bedroom Edgewater Suite comes with a private hot tub on the deck. The One Bedroom Oceanside Suites do not have full ocean views and are partial ocean views. Hope this helps! - Markus McRurie Evening Supervisor

Hi Dani, Unfortunately, our Surf Shack is for our guests only as we do have 122 suites on our property, and at any given time can have upwards of 300 - 400 people on the property. Therefore, lesson times and rental gear are limited. Hope this answers your question! :)

Hi Christine, We are located on Cox Bay Beach Resort, which is the further beach from town, yet only a 5-minute drive away.Relative to the other beaches of Tofino Cox Bay is one of the largest and therefore you can still find your own quiet spot to relax and get away from it all. Unfortunately, we do not have an office which is open 24/7. The office hours are 7:00am to 10:00pm, however, we do have on-call staff who are on the property 24/7 who can be reached if there ever is an urgent matter or emergency. Hope this answers your question! Sincerely, Markus McRurie Evening Supervisor

"There are many room options and price points to fit most budgets. I don’t think you can get a bad room."
"Beach houses all are steps from the beach, but 32 and upwards are in a small peninsula that partially blocks direct ocean views."
"Beach houses closer to the centre of the property have better views of the water"
"All have beach views but the closer one are not pet friendly .. but even pet friendly had good ocean views."
"Request an upper floor for better views and quieter if you can do a flight of stairs"
