This was our second time to Ocean Sands Resort and will not be our last. Our suite was perfect. Everything you could possibly need. The view is fabulous and the pool was perfect. The manager Darcy was the best. He made every effort to keep us happy. Can't say enough good things about him and the resort.

Excellent comfortable condo accommodation with stunning waterfront view of Strait of Georgia. Immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable. The check in was easy and the Manager was very helpful and pleasant.

Not sure where to begin...begin with Darcy...what a great guy! He runs things with his wife(I didn't have much interaction with her) and just as helpful and friendly as you'd hope for in dealing with a place to rent for your family. Accommodating and informative when we needed advice. We stayed in 104, the top floor and looked right over...

We loved our accommodations! They were central to everything we did as far as location. The space itself was large, clean and perfectly situated by the pool. I don't think there is a bad location in the resort! The pool and beach were excellent as well. I had never seen the tides before and we were able to walk out...

We stayed there for a couple of nights this summer with 5 of us. It would be better with 2 bathrooms but the space is large. The location is right at Rathtrevor beach. Go for the waterfront. It is not that much more money and you are right on the beach.

We stayed here for one night with our 3 children, ages, 15, 13 and 10. The person who greeted my husband at check in was very nice. He gave us two sets of metal keys ($100 fee if lost). We had a second floor unit with 2 bedrooms. It had 1 queen bed, 2 twins and one pull out sofa....

We had a great stay at the Ocean Sands Resort. Access to the pool, the beach, and the surrounding area made for a great family vacation. I would highly recommend this resort to any family or families looking for a very relaxing vacation.

Rented three units all next to each other with views of the garden and pool. Kids loved it! So close to the beach. Units were big enough for everyone to congregate together (group of 15) which was great for meals.
