Great Hotel- Home base for Tofino Exploring

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: Easy access to town of Tofino. Friendly, professional staff.
Cons: Rooms were comfortable and met all our needs. However, title of resort is stretching things. Updates and remodels should be the next order of business
Location: Directly on Cox Bay, 8-10 min to Tofino. Bicycle path also leads directly to town. Whale watching, kayaking, gallery visits, dining,surfing, shopping
Recommended Ocean view suite was requested and we were not disappointed. Grounds surrounding Resort were immaculate. Check in was quick and efficient. Lots to do: hiking trails, storm watching, viewing surfer adventures (about 200 meters away) or just chilling on deck with coffee or glass of vino.

Beautiful!

Posted Mar 13, 2015
Pros: Every thing.
Cons: A Restaurant on the premises.
Location: Pacific Sands is about a 5 minute drive out of Tofino. We took a boat to the Hot Springs, which was wonderful. It is a hike up to the springs, but wel
We were so happy with our suite, the little kitchen is fully equipt, it has every thing one can think of to prepare a nice meal. The staff were very nice and friendly, and the rooms very clean. It was lovely to sit out on the balcony and watch the surfers riding the waves. The beach is lovely, such a beautiful corner of the world We enjoyed the fire in the evening , in the undercover building,where we treated ourselves to smores.. There is not a restaurant on the premises, but is one located right next door, although it is very expensive to eat there. This is a wonderful place to stay, I wish we had more time there, we will certainly go back.

We enjoyed our stay.

Next time we will request a room on the 2nd floor closes to the beach so that we would see more of the ocean. The wifi was not working for couple of days and when it was working it was super slow. Overall the room is clean and comfortable.

Perfect for a week

Posted Mar 1, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness, great staff, well equipped suites. The unites are designed so that everyone gets a view and privacy.
Cons: The fridge in our suite was made lots of noise.
Location: Near Tofino but very private.
This is our third time at Pacific Sands Beach Resort. We come in the winter and there is nothing as lovely as sitting by the gas fire in your cozy suite watching the surf and surfers. The kitchen is fully equipped and the housekeeping is very efficient. i wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tofino.

great location, a bit run down

Posted Feb 26, 2015
fantastic location and view, we were able to watch the surfers all day. The suite was generally quite roomy with ample tools and space to cook. The facilities are a bit run down, for example the toilet was not properly installed and would move a bit every time you sat down. What this place really needs is a hot tub that everyone can use. Some suites have them but VERY pricey. Overall good value for the price.

Pros: Very nice view of the water; next to a beautiful, sandy beach; fully equipped kitchen-even though it was small it was sufficient;
Location: Tacofina Cantina (bus in the back of a parking lot) for great fish tacos, SOBO Restaurant for a great dinner with different menu items to choose from
Tofino is a wonderful place to visit and our resort was on beautiful Cox Bay with a very nice room

Pacific Sands Stay

Posted Feb 7, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: A restaurant would have been nice, but there are lots of places in Tofino.
Location: The town of Tofino has lots to offer. We were there off season and missed seeing the museum, but there were lots of other thing to see and do.
We loved our stay at Pacific Sands. From the time we checked in to the time we left, it totally lived up to our expectations. The staff were polite, the room clean, and any questions were answered right away. Everything you needed to storm watch was provided ( rain slickers, umbrellas). We'd definitely go back.

Great hotel, close to beach

Posted Jan 28, 2015
Pros: The suite size, the comfort of the room, the views, and the fireplace. We also enjoyed the complimentary drinks available at reception.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Great location; hiking the Wild Pacific Trail; walking in Tonquin Park, eating at many of the fabulous restaurants.
This hotel was better than we expected. It exceeded our expectations. We loved being so close to the beach with such a great view. We enjoyed looking out our window to see the waves. The beach was wonderful to walk on. The room was very comfortable, and we enjoyed the fireplace. The room felt like home.

Relaxing resort with ocean view

Posted Dec 28, 2014
We enjoyed our 4 night stay and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We took advantage of the shuttle service and the drivers were safe and courteous. We also availed of the catering service that allowed us to cook our own turkey with all of the trimming supplied and anything else that we forgot- the resort was able to lend us!
