Every room here has a full ocean view with either a patio or balcony, each suite has a full kitchen. It is great place just to get away and unwind away from the rat race. It is a good base just outside Tofino town proper. The walking and exploring options abound from here. Impeccably clean and maintained. My 4th visit...

Modern, clean, but very west coast, with lots of wood and endless views. Great staff. Rooms vary from a hilltop house, to three level beachfront houses good for two families, to condos. It's all beachfront, on probably the nicest beach around. Dog friendly. Having a satellite surf shop on the grounds is brilliant - we just rented wetsuits and hit...

We love Tofino! And it's always The Pacific Sands Beach Resort that we return to and for good reason. When you mention going to Tofino you'll often be steered towards The Wickininish Inn but be warned it left us feeling flat with their over priced rooms that desperately need updating ( it's been years since I've been so they may...

Most amazing 2 bedroom 2 story beachfront house. Very cozy and secluded. Very friendly Surf Sisters shop who setup Dad and 2 kids with wet suits and boogie boards. Thanks! Nice to have free hot chocolate, and of course the kids were happy with the wifi. Unfortunately the Indian Frozen food they had for purchase was ridiculously priced so had...

We stayed for 2 nights in the lodge. Our studio had an ocean view and very good amenities. Despite very wet weather, we were very warm and cosy and enjoyed easy access to the beach. Pettinger Point, reached by a boardwalk from the hotel was delightful and a great place to sit and watch the surf. The resort shop stocks...

Dear Niphaphom L, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with Pacific Sands! Tofino is definitely the perfect place to bring your fur babies! With all the beautiful beaches, rain forest hikes, and fresh coastal air, it truly is doggie paradise. It is extremely unfortunate that you experienced some noisy neighbours above you, and I can...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pacific Sands, it was during storm watching season and we went with another couple and it was perfect! The ocean-side cabins are beautifully appointed and so incredibly cozy. The layout of the 1300 sq ft cabins is perfect for a stay with another couple. We will definitely go back the next time we're in...

Dear Chad C, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with Pacific Sands. We are thrilled to hear that your storm watching stay was "perfect". The Beach Houses are the best way to watch storms roll in offering front row seats, yet providing a warm and cozy environment to relax by the fireplace and take it...
