Excellent accommodations, staff was very welcoming and helpful. We introduced a couple who shared a 2 bd Beach House with us who had never been in this area before and for sure we will all return to Pacific Sands and bring children and grandchildren.

location : could not be better, the ocean so nearby, beautiful beach, the best sunset ever, great walk to the clips and we have seen a couple bald eagles there. Lighthouse suite : clean - enough space - minor point : very small bathroom, but in general it was a very cosy unit. Surely we will come back sometimes in the future

We stayed here in a 2 bedroom beach house for a long weekend getaway trip. The beach houses live up to their description. Spacious, clean, with amazing views of the ocean. One could not ask for more. The kitchen comes fully furnished with all the equipment you might need to make a meal. If there's something extra you might need in the kitchen, the front desk can furnish it. Fireplaces and heated floors were a blessing on chilly nights, though the weather in late May was actually quite nice- 60-70's F during the day, dipping to 40-50's at night. They provide yellow raincoats for rainy days. We loved the floor to ceiling glass windows on the lower and upper levels which gave us unobstructed beautiful views of Cox bay. Stayed in beach house # 30, which seemed like an ideal location as it was far away from the main lodge to allow privacy but close enough still to get great views of the beach. As you go further up in numbers in the beach houses, you get more sheltered by trees and inland, which may not give as great of a view. The main bedroom had another balcony with great views- nice to wake up to everyday in the morning- fireplace, large soaking tub, and separate room for shower/toilet/sink. The second bedroom had two queen sized beds and a separate spacious bathroom with combined bathtub/shower. Views were smaller windows of the other side of the beach house (gravel driveway). Bathrooms came with plenty of plush towel and bathrobes. Having enough hot water was not an issue for people taking showers at the same time. Main lower floor had comfortable couches and chairs as well as furnished balcony overlooking the bay. There is also a laundry room (detergent provided) and a half bath on the lower floor. This was one of the best places we have stayed at and definitely a great deal for the price. They have a breakfast delivery option which included fruit drinks, fruit, granola/yogurt, and pastry (muffin) for $11.50 per person between 8:30-9am. The main desk has a variety of frozen entrees, drinks, etc you can buy. Plenty of meal choices, including the main lodge at Long beach resort next door (within walking distance), or going into Tofino (10min drive), where there are a variety of nice restaurants. Very close to Pacific Rim National Park (~10min drive) and numerous beaches- our favorites were Combers Beach, Wickanninnish beach, and Chesterman beach. We definitely enjoyed the boardwalk to Pettinger Point that the hotel made- short hike and great views of Cox bay and Chesterman beach. This is a wonderful place for families or couples looking for a relaxing vacation close to nature. We will definitely be back...hopefully for longer next time!

Lovely suites at a great location. Front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Shuttle service into town was great. Pacific Sands contributes to the slice of heaven that Tofino is. Be sure to try surfing - Surf Sisters provide great lessons - lots of fun and NO, you will not be cold.

Anniversary weekend get-away to Tofino. Incredible location, warm reception, sound of surf enthralling, service top-notch, loved the fireplace. Somewhat pricey, but to be expected in Tofino. Neat that all units face the beach and open ocean. Only (but annoying) negative: we left patio door open to listen to sound of surf, but were subjected to strong smell of cigarette smoke from smoker on balcony below. Smoking policy should be changed to permit a smoking area elsewhere, away from the buildings and balconies. Also, went to front desk at 10 p.m. first evening and was surprised to find it closed.
