This is a beautiful property. Most of the duplex structures sit right on the beach, though the one's on the northern most end have limited views of surf. The homes are nice enough, with the master bedroom facing right out onto the ocean. Lovely to go to sleep to the sound of waves coming up on shore. There are very...

We recently stayed in a Beachfront suite -- I highly recommend the resort. It is a beautiful setting and the resort is well run and maintained. It was nice to be able to walk on the beach to Long Beach Lodge for dinner.

We had travelled all the way from London, with too little time to explore this gorgeous part of the world. Our apartment provided a lovely view of the beach and sea, through a set of trees that also gave us privacy. Perfect. The comfort and flexibility of an apartment yet close to both Tofino and the resort's own well-stocked shop.

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.
