Had a wonderful stay here with my elderly parents. The views of the beach were terrific and access to the beach was great, capped with a wonderful short hike to the bluff where the waves come rolling in. Easy walk to Coffee at the nearby hotel, and delicious dinner at the Wickenish Inn.

Excellent location, surpassed only by the accommodation and service. This was our 5th visit in 25 years. From newlyweds, to new parents, to empty nesters, this family friendly location offers something for every situation and any time of year. The best place to recharge, regroup, reconnect or rekindle with your spouse, yourself, your kids, or your family.

We stay at the Pacific Sands a couple of times a year. The location is great. Waves at Cox Bay are great. The beach amazing, staff and accomodation brilliant. Pets are welcome, and this is a plus for us.

Our unit was perfect for two people and the view of the ocean was fabulous. It was a bit more than we wanted to spend, but it was well worth it. The provided raincoats were an unexpected bonus for the rainy days and the hike to Pettinger Point, on the property, was extra special. All staff are very friendly, helpful...

You'd be hard pressed to find a better view from the rooms that face the ocean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the property overall has a nice rustic feel. The problem however, is that almost every other hotel, resort and lodge along this particular stretch of beach offers the exact same beautiful views and access to...

Very comfortable and inviting suite for our stay in the Pacific Rim Park. We could see the waves crashing in during our fall storm from our window. The area was so quiet and Tofino is accessible by bike or car. The staff were all very welcoming. No restaurant on site other than a coffee bar but it is a short...

Stayed here in October. Resort is great, well looked after, quiet and on a really lovely beach. Friendly welcome, and the apartment (it was an 'ocean view lodge' I think) was awesome. Literally 30 seconds to the beach and you could see the sea out the window! The breakfast was ok but nothing special- we'd booked it ahead for both...

We shared the two bedroom Beach House with my best friend and enjoyed every moment! It had everything we needed. It was modern and spacious and has an awesome view. This was our stay-cation, and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed strolling on the beach, and getting out to Pettinger Point during the blustery storm and watching huge waves roll...
