We had some time to spend the first day on the west side of the island so checked around a few resorts to see their accommodation options. The Beach House we chose topped anything that we had seen. I can't imagine a better view from your living room or bedroom. The suite was exceptionally well equipped and cared for. Although...

I've stayed at Pacific Sands before and would give it a high rating on most counts: the suite was clean, lovely view, helpful staff. But the deal breaker for me was a very poor internet connection for three days. I'd only return if I was assured beforehand that the connection was good, otherwise I'd look elsewhere.

I'm not sure what else can be said about this amazing property! We stayed for a few nights (2 br beach house) with our young children and everyone in the family had a wonderful time. The views are breathtaking and the unit is extremely comfortable. The beach was literally steps from our door which made for a lot of fun...

The unit was well appointed and very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Free DVDs were provided, as was rain jackets. The resort is on one of the best...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Pacific Sands, and it was simply great. I was in Tofino in Sept and stayed elsewhere, and I just wish I had known about Pacifc Sand at the time. Our suite was lovely and tastefully decorated. We had one bedroom with kitchenette and view on the ocean from the living room. There...

The beach-side townhouses we stayed in are very nice and comfortable. They are nicely furnished and kept in good repair and are very clean. The daily cleaning service is excellent. Only the quality of the WIFI internet access could be better.

Me and the dog rented a beach house. It was incredible. Highly recommend the place. Everything from the beach to the large soaker tub was relaxing. Can't wait to return. Nice touch that they have rain gear available in the suite for those who didn't remember to bring it :)
