This place is wonderful. The staff are wonderful. I enjoyed my stay there immensely. The surrounding areas of Nanaimo, Coombs, Qualicum Beach are so close. I would definitely go back again to stay. Loved it.

The view was spectacular!! The hosts were great. Anything you need they had it there or would get it for you. Only one negative were the couches in our suite #218, were short on the back and uncomfortable.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and equipt with everything we needed while staying away from home. It's a great location and we loved being able to walk down to the beach. It was also great weather to be away from home. Thank you.

Condo was spacious and clean. Great views. Price was fantastic. Would stay there again! Staff was extremely friendly at check in and check out. Really great experience there.

This is my 3rd visit to Ocean Sands and I was once again very impressed. I stayed at the resort for 6 nights and it was excellent to have a full kitchen and spacious living area. The owners are very attentive and are quick to supply any necessities you may require. The accommodation is also very reasonably priced considering what...

Ocean Sands is a great facility with very friendly and helpful staff. The suite we were in was excellent - it was impeccably clean and it had everything we needed, including spaciousness and quiet.

Excellent experience, outstanding service & amazing view. Would definitely stay again. Ocean view suites are right on the beach & are so worth the extra $$. Stunning sunrise as well. Bring boots to go exploring when it's low tide.
