“Great Resort”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We had a wonderful time in Tofino and enjoyed our stay at the Pacific Sands. This resort came highly recommended from our family who had stayed there before. My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights with our 2 children. We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite. The only downside was that one of the beds provided was a pull out couch. It was really uncomfortable. My husband and I took turns sleeping on the pullout with one of the kids and both of us had a horrible night's sleep and a sore back the next day. The mattress on the pullout was not comfortable and we felt the springs of the couch in our back. The pullout should really not be considered a second bed for a family of 4. Other than that, the resort was great and had a beautiful beach.

Very clean, nicely kept grounds. The views are amazing and kitchen in the lodge suites a little small but fully functional. Love the gas fireplace even in the summer with the ocean waves in the background. Water pressure in showers poor but you can work around it. The kids loved the beach which was right outside the door.

Great for combination travellers. We were two grandparents, a 9 year old granddaughter and a yellow lab. EVERYBODY had a great time. Be advised that if you are on the ground level, which we specifically wanted, you will hear your overhead fellow guests moving around and flushing. Not a problem for us, but might be a consideration for some.

Spent five nights at the Pacific Sands with two children aged 7 & 9. Beautiful location with stunning views of the beach from our room. The staff at the hotel simply couldn't do enough for you with free bucket and sands for the kids; free popcorn when watching the borrowed DVDs, s'mores by the campfire in the evenings. The kids loved the club every morning and came back with amazing facts that they had learnt from Angus. Overall a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful time at Pacific Sands! We stayed in the uppper beachfront suite and it was perfect! I mentioned upon booking that we were celebrating a couple of birthdays and we were surprised with chocolates, a card, and champagne in our room. A thoughtful touch! Cox Bay is delightful and we felt like we had our own private beach. Watching the surfers from dawn to dusk was a treat. I would completely recommend Pacific Sands to families, couples, or a girls weekend away.

Lovely relaxing stay, very comfortable rooms, friendly staff, beautiful beach. It may be a little more expensive than other accommodation .... but I think it was worth every penny. Pacific sands is great for couples, families, and groups of friends, if I go back to Canada I am going back for sure.

Great location right on Cox Beach. Room was clean. Bed was very comfortable and the pillows great! I love down pillows and hate those phony kinds so I was real happy to find the ones I love. Love the fireplace in the room. Kitchen and bath a little dated but I didn't care because of the location of the resort. Walk out to the beach or on to a rainforest trail. We had a great time and I would stay here again.
