“OCEAN VIEW STUDIO with Dogs. Would recommend and return.”
Reviewed 4 April 2011

Beach is great. Not too busy. Clean and tons of starfish! Great for dogs. Location of hotel is also great. Smack in between town and Pac. Rim Nat'l Park. Not too far off the main road either. Wireless, TV and DVD player all worked well. Note though, no phone in room. Kitchen and bathroom were a little dated (ie: fixtures, appliances) but were in good working order. Tub small and kinda depressing so showered only. No long leisurely soaks. Bed and bath linens were good. Clean and fresh. Pet charge was higher than most at $40/pet vs the usual Tofino charge of $40 total. Good overall value compared with other hotels near by. Would recommend and return.

Room Tip: Ask to stay high up (3rd floor).

My husband and I stayed here for a quick weekend honeymoon and we were more than impressed with Pacific Sands. Check in was a breeze, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. In our room we found a card signed by all the staff wishing us a happy honeymoon, wine, chocolates and other goodies. We stayed in the Lighthouse Suites and were happy with our location and happy that they honoured our request to be on the top floor. The room itself was nice and comfortable. We didn't find the bed all that comfortable so we ended up sleeping on the pull out sofa bed our 2nd night and it was great being able to see the ocean and hear the waves. Next time we will probably forgo the room with the extra bedroom and just book a studio room.

The grounds are clean and well kept. The reception building is also very clean and has a small selection of food/drinks available. We took advantage of the games and movies they provide as well. Every employee we encountered was friendly, helpful and very accomodating. By the end of only our first night we were already talking about when we could return to Tofino and the Pacific Sands. We lucked out and managed to see some stormy weather and some sun. We took advantage of the raincoats provided and got out onto the beach to watch the waves coming in. When it got sunny we walked along the boardwalk path to Pettinger Point and were greeted to gorgeous views. Best of both worlds!

I can't think of any negatives we encountered while staying here. They have a great group of room selections that would suit anyone. They are close to town, only a short drive away. We only wish we had stayed during a time of the year when they provide bikes so we could have biked into town. You will not be disappointed with this resort and I have already recommended Pacific Sands to family and friends.

Great Place to relax and get away. Tofino itself was amazing and I think it really doesn't matter where you stay as long as you're able to see the beach. The beach was incredible. The rooms are 3 star. It is nothing fancy. The bed is very comfortable and the room is functional. If you want something more elegant then I recommend the Wick Inn.

Great Service.

There's nothing like the Tofino/Long Beach coast on the west coast of Vancouver Islands. Pacific Sands Resort is an awesome way to experience this magical place. The villas are exquisite.

What a place just to chill out. The views are spectacular, the waves are amazing, just continually crashing onto a clean sandy beach, but safe for small children. The beach has loads of fun sea creatures to explore when the tide is out. The resort caters to families with a huge outdoor gazebo/bbq facilities. We stayed in a suite that was spacious with a fully equipped kitchen; the pullout couch was actually comfy. Staff were helpful and welcoming. A great get-away.

The location of this resort is such a treasure. We stayed 3 nights. The bright yellow jackets, provided by the resort, were perfect for the long walks on the beach at this time of year. The staff were friendly, and effecient; ensuring that our stay was memorable. The complex is very well maintained,our villa was clean; and stocked with all the necessary kitchen supplies for an enjoyable get away. The comfort of the beds was enhanced by the sounds of the ocean, and the view was breathtaking.

We will definitely be returning.
