West coast life

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks agovia mobile
Situated in a quiet and stunning locations, Pacific Sands is an excellent choice for your West Coast visit. The resort is great for families, couples and dogs !!. We stayed with our pup and the rooms are spacious and extremely well equipped with every small detail taken care of.. The coffee shop and grill on site are excellent and so convenient. The location is outstanding, with a stunning beach and sunsets. The staff were welcoming and friendly. If you are looking for a great beachside resort, the Pacific Sands is highly recommended

We stayed in a two bedroom beachside cottage and had the most wonderful time. The views are those of dreams and the accommodation had everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The staff were very friendly and the only shame was we had booked just two nights! Thank you.

Every detail for comfort and sensibility was accounted for in our suite. Fabulous ocean view. Walking the beach morning and evening was restorative and beautiful with surfers in the waves, children and dogs romping on the sand and for quiet moments, one could wander over to the tide pools that were full of life with sea urchins, mussels and other aquatic wonders. Truly an experience that was re-energizing, calming and exhilarating. It's so necessary for us all to seek out time with our natural world so we can revel in its beauty and magnificence and maybe...just maybe, activate our core to be more mindful of how we continue to harm all that surrounds us; from flora, fauna, waterways and oceans. There's just so much splendour that supports life as we have known it, and what a tragedy it would be to forever lose it. Pacific Sands Resort is the perfect place to discover wonderment and joy in life's simple, yet complex beauty

Our stay here was a dream. We loved our beachside suite, the view through the trees to be beach was idyllic, and the apartment was cosy and airy at the same time. The fireplace - on a chilly day - was very welcome and the beds so comfortable. Food from the beach shack in the morning was great - good coffee, smoothies and breakfast fare. Eating fish and chips in the evening around a fire pit with the sound of the ocean in the background was magic. The beach is literally steps away and made for long walks in all weathers. We enjoyed hiring bikes and taking the cycle path to Tofino, and treated ourselves to a wonderful massage at the resort. Can’t wait to come back 😀

Room tip: Visiting in early May was great for a quiet resort and bracing walks on the beach. Book well ahead for massage treatments on site.

We had a great trip, the room was great, very well equipped with all you need. Very clean and great view of the beach from the living room. Rented bikes, very handy, great food from the surf side grill. We didn’t need much but when we needed anything we got it

Room tip: We found it very good and would go back

We first came to Tofino about 1987 and have been back at least 25 times. Our last visit in April this year. Almost exclusively we have stayed at Pacific Sands Resort and plan to continue with more of the same.
Superb location on Cox Bay. Easy booking with direct line( not third party) to knowledgeable and friendly staff. On arrival reception is well complemented by excellent guest services and house keeping.
Many different units which can suit different families and needs including pets. The property and units have expanded over time in a very tasteful and environmentally friendly fashion. Amenities include a Surfside Grill, Beach Shack for coffee, surf board rentals and more.
We book a year in advance in order to get our favourite room with a view of Cox Bay !! love it.
In summary Pacific Sands is the very best for accommodation in Tofino.
I suggest getting on their mailing list for current info on Pacific Sands and Tofino.
