This was a tough place to leave...going to sleep with the sounds of the ocean and then waking up and being there, ahhh! We had a studio that was wonderful, 40 feet from the beach, full kitchen, full bath, dining and living room area and a luxurious king size bed. Big windows, patio and a fireplace added to the ambiance...

This was our annual trip to Tofino, but the first time staying at Pacific Sands. There are a lot of good things to say about this resort. First the staff were fantastic. And the view (stayed ground level in a 2 bedroom lodge suite). The addition of the Surfside Grill was great because I would have been disappointed to not...

Shed a tear as I left this spot. We stayed in a beachfront suite. We woke every morning to the waves crashing and surfers outside our window. What a fantastic spot. Tried out surfside grill for their smoked salmon breakfast sandwiches Phenomenal. We will be back Pacific Sands!!!

This was our second time staying at Pacific Sands and we loved it even more than the first time. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean (even under the furniture) and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The kitchen was very well stocked and I loved having in-suite laundry in the beach house. I was also amazed that even when...

I stayed in the lodge (first floor) and the view was spectacular. My room's living room area was facing the bay front which was really pretty. Full kitchen amenities and appliances available for long-term staying. There was a fireplace too which was nice considering I am afraid of the cold lol. Bathroom was extremely spacious with a nice, reasonably sized...

Great place. Our third time. Steps from the fabulous beach. They have added a restaurant this year and more suites are under construction. Spent the day watching the Surfers of Cox Bay. Will return in the fall for more beach fun!

This hotel is so very nice, we completely enjoyed our stay there. The room was spacious and had a wonderful view of the beach and surf. We enjoyed the beach walk through the rain-forest to some breathtaking views of the ocean and were glad that slickers were provided in the room as it was quite wet. Tofino is a gorgeous...

I love Pacific Sands. I've stayed there 4 times and am already looking forward to my next trip back. We stayed in a beachfront unit with one bedroom. It has been recently renovated with new laminate flooring, kitchen and bathroom. Everything was clean and they provide you with everything you need to be comfortable. We especially appreciate the dog friendliness...

We couldn't believe what a great vacation we had while staying here last fall. It was our first vacation with our 3 month old at the time.

We have two very young children and this was our first family getaway. We rented the 2 bedroom suite for 2 nights and really don't have much to complain about. The view was awesome.
