we have come many times and book our favorite room--love it--suits our needs for a one night stay or a week long stay. Just to relax right by the water is what we look forward to each time. The hosts are particularly hospitable.

Darcy and His Wife are Fantastic. Customer Service is No. 1. I have finished my 3rd stay here and cannot wait to come back. Location is perfect, close enough to town if you need anything, far enough away for peace and quiet and just being able to enjoy the Ocean.

We loved everything about this place! Gorgeous views, comfortable and clean rooms and very reasonable prices! The full kitchen allowed us to do lots of cooking in our unit. The beds were very comfortable and the towels soft. This is now our go-to spot in Parksville!

Definately recommend Ocean Sands Resort as a place to enjoy with your family (we brought our 2 kids ages 2 and 5) quiet and peaceful with an amazing view-we will definately be back to relax without the kids!

The place was better than expected. I love that the suite comes with so many amenities in the kitchen, including a bbq grill and propane. All you have to bring is the food. Will definitely be planning a trip back.

Spacious condo...loved the "home-away-from-home" experience. Never heard any road noise which is always a plus when we travel. Loved the close beach access. Staff were a delight! Would not hesitate to stay here again, and highly recommend the Ocean Sands!

Excellent condos with view and the caretakers are very good hosts. The units are a little dated but are clean. Our hockey club stays there every September renting most of the units available. The location on the beach is nice for the walks when the tide is out.
