We stayed here over the Easter weekend with our two small grandchildren and their parents, we had a beach house and it was perfect for all of us. It was our children's first time to the ocean and the staff here were awesome!! From the...

Excellent service from very friendly staff, great amenities. The beach house has a great setup in the kitchen and if you need something they don't have, you can easily get it from the office. The house is very private with spectacular views, has great beach access and your own hot tub on the deck and fire pit in the yard....

Perfect beach location for surfing (or lounge chair surfing, looking out from spacious balcony)! Stayed in a Beach front suite that had amazing views of Cox Bay. Very spacious and nice kitchen amenities but the view is the clincher! I do not have a dog but thought the pet friendly format was excellent and got a kick out of watching...

The Pacific Sands always impresses me when I stay here. Lovely rooms all with outstanding ocean views, wonderful, friendly and professional staff and all the services you need in one place. We only get to Tofino every few years but this has become our only place to stay after trying many others.

I have no issues with this place at all. If you are into surfing or wake boarding it's paradise. We stayed in one of their beachfront houses and it was spacious and nicely appointed. We were super cozy there and they allow pets so we were very pleased in general. Service is solid but limited. I would go back.

Of all the accommodations we've ever had, the BEACHOUSE here is one of our favourites. It's perfect for a family! It feels secluded and private with perfect access to cox bay and surfing. It's well set up for your wetsuits and surfboards as well as warming up after a session. BEACHOUSE is 3 levels with great bathrooms, exposed to the...

Amazing suite with an incredible view of the beach and ocean ! We wanted a quiet, peaceful time to chill and it was the perfect resort and suite for that. Our private hot tub and large patio was put to very good use. We also made good use of our BBQ as we stayed in and cooked a few nights....
