Again a good time at Pacific Sands and area. Always a great place to veg out. Location is hard to beat and the people at PS are great. Our room needed an upgrade to the sofa bed as it was tired. Staff quick to help were they could.

Sadly we could only stay one night, however it was very enjoyable. A great get away to recharge the batteries. Reserved by phone and did not have to repeat everything upon arrival. Check in was quick and painless!

Had a wonderful time at Pacific Sands. We wouldn't normally stay at a place this expensive or nice but we won a three night stay and had such a great time. Beautiful beach house, comfortable and warm.

Our room facing the ocean was lovely. Beautiful view, nice apartment style room. Only reason I gave 4 stars was due to lack of restaurant on premises. A full kitchen allows you to prepare your own meals though. Front dest staff were very friendly and helpful.

The staff was great at accommodating our special needs as I am confined to a wheelchair and one other member of our group had recent hip surgery. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Location was superb and the grounds were well kept. My wife and I will definitely return in the near future.

We have been coming to Pacific Sands Resort since the 70's and have watched it grow into the awesome resort it is today. Have tried a couple other spots but this is indeed the best place to stay. We are looking forward to next time.

We spent four nights for our 50th Wedding Anniversary and were treated royally. The "movie basket" with wine, popcorn, hot chocolate and specialty coffee was an unexpected treat! Can't wait to return.

It was my first time visiting Tofino and friends recommended that my husband and I stay at the Pacific Sands Resort. We booked ourselves into one of their beach houses, and wow! It was stunning! Right on the Bay, with spectacular views of the water, it had everything we could possibly need for our vacation, and more. And it was...

Always seem to get the "room rate game" and the carpet in the room was stained, which is why I gave it a 4. But the room was clean regardless of the stains (a carpet cleaner could fix this), everything smelled clean, staff is friendly and kind, the resort is gorgeous and the beach is no less words than perfect....

It was great... I can't add anymore than I have already said... It was awesome.. all of it. I was really touched by the dog treats and do dishes in my room to the girl at reception that babysat my dog after her shift so I could go for a massage. Thank you so much for the great experience.
