I hesitate to tell anyone about Pacific Sands on Cox Bay because it is getting very popular and we have always loved it for it peace and tranquility. However we cannot deny other people the experience, so I have to say, if anyone is looking for beach accommodation without too many frills then this is the place, Peaceful, relaxing and... More

I could not have asked for a better stay: the location, the beautiful room, the friendly and helpful staff... everything was an absolute dream! We will definitely be back to the Pacific Sands as soon as possible!

Staying at the Pacific Sands was perfect! It is close to the ocean, the views are breathtaking! The rooms are beautiful. Staff members are very responsive to any need/want a guest may have - couldn't find a better place!

We have been coming to Pacific Sands Resort for years now and will continue to visit. The beach houses are spacious very well equipped. You are steps to the beach. Just a beautiful location. Enjoyable stay.

If you want to stay at a place that is clean, scenic, and has it's own cooking amenities, this is the place! Right on the beach on Vancouver Island. There is no restaurant in the resort, but many are nearby. Instead they have a well-supplied kitchenette, dishes, cookware and dining area. Great for a retreat where you take care of... More

We had a great time at Pacific Sands Beach Resort. The staff was friendly, the facility was excellent and the views of the ocean and sunset were amazing. We especially enjoyed walking on the beach. We would come here again.

Would stay again for sure. Kitchen in 207 was very small and could use a bit of work but the studio suite had ample room otherwise. The proximity to the beach made this great. Walking the white, sandy beach was a few short steps away.

This property is in a fabulous bay, perfect for surfing and boogie boarding. Fun for all of us from the 4 year old to the 65 year old. We had a beach house which was perfect for 6 of us. A short bike into Tofino.

Excellent.We try to go once each year.Tofino is a great area to visit.Lots to do even in the rain but we have had some brilliant weather in August and September.Gets quieter after the schools are back in Sept.Worth a trip for storm watching in mid winter,rates are cheaper also.

Let's understand that you're paying for beach access. There's no question that having a room just steps from brilliant Cox bay beach is a remarkable way to live. So as long as you're cool with paying $300 a night AFTER labour day for a one bed/one pull-out with a barely functional kitchenette and a bathroom so small you can't enter... More

Dear Gone911, Thank you for your recent comments and that you agree that we do live in a little piece of paradise. Traditionally September in Tofino offers sunny days and beautiful evenings which typically results in very high occupancies. We certainly agree that the Internet services and Wi-Fi in Tofino leaves a lot to be desired, all Resorts unfortunately suffer... More
