The views are spectacular, the facilities are excellent. A fully useable kitchen supplied with all the utensils and pots and amenities that you require to provide for full meals, a fireplace, good lighting, and the staff are warm and friendly and so helpful. Access to BBQ and fire pit close to the beach. They supply raincoats to keep you dry...

we stayed for 8 days in the Pacific Sands Beach Resort in Tofino, BC. We absolutely loved the location directly on the Pacific Ocean. The Nature does not get any more prettier. The Hotel is very well managed and the village nearby is really nice. We rented the 2 Bedroom townhouse style appartment and it was very spacious. the furnishings...

Just returned from a quick family break to Pacific Sands. Hands down one of the nicest suites I have stayed at in Tofino. Beachfront, awesome views and private hot tub for warming up the kids after hiking/beachcombing. The Surfside Grill is a great addition-poutine/fish tacos. Better pricing than other high end and can't beat location. Sand Dollar will be my...

Gorgeous location and resort. On arrival we found that our room did not meet our needs. Jasmine from the front desk immediately provided us with a fabulous alternative and offered help to move our gear over to the new spot.. Very much appreciated. Beach is amazing, as are the stafff. We'll be back this summer.

We've stayed at Pacific Sands many times in many different rooms/buildings over the last 20 years. This was our first time since the ownership change. We always thought it was a beautiful place but now they've kicked it up a notch from a 4* to 5*! The staff are so friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the cleaning...

We stayed at the Pacific Beach House for 3 nights during the Christmas Break with our children, ages 14 and 21 and our family pet. I have to say it was one of the most memorable times as a family, from the drive out to the storms, crashing waves, hikes, games and just overall a time to reconnect as a...

We spent a spectacular three nights at this resort. There were storms and sunshine, wicked waves and stunning walks. The resort has a walk through rainforest to a lookout. The suite we rented was a one bedroom with a pull out couch in the living room. There were four of us and we were comfortable, warm and well taken care...

Jasmin & Abby made us feel very welcome and special for our 50th Wedding Anniversary stay at the beachfront resort on the North Pacific.

A truly beautiful resort. The Lodge we had was no.24 with a lovely view over the ocean. It was very well equipped and luxurious. We were extremely lucky with the weather, which I understand can be very misty at times. We did see the mist roll in late one afternoon and early in the morning, but it soon disappeared and...
