We've been staying here since 1974, the year after the Pettinger family bought it. Rooms and kitchens are well equipped and the view of and proximity to the beach are wonderful. This trip we stayed in the 3 bedroom beach house (with our adult children), which has a fully accessible ground floor bedroom and bathroom with wheel in shower. Cellphone and wi-fi service spotty. Make reservations far in advance in order to avoid disappointment. The beach is beautiful in the sunshine or in the rain, and the surfers don't give up till full dark. Cox Bay is situated just north of Pacific Rim National Park and 10 minutes south of Tofino.

The resort provides an awesome location and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The BBQ areas are great and the fire pit provides a lot of fun for kids and a great social area for adults. Great opportunity to meet people.

If you go to Tofino, you must stay at Pacific Sands. Amazing, amazing facilities and our room was literally 20 steps from the beach. Tofino has a unique tourist atmosphere. It attracts the surfers and families as well as the affluent. Pacific Sands is a perfect middle ground for families looking for an amazing holiday.

easy to get to, short distance from village, appreciated being able to book one night only - and on a Friday! Our visiting family from Ontario got a true west coast experience.

We checked in here for 3 nights after a long drive from Campbell River. There had been a fire at a local electricity sub station so there was no electricity. So first impressions were a bit mixed. We stayed in a Beachfront Suite but were on the ground floor which meant we had no real view of the sea and were vulnerable to children walking past our window as we got changed.
But after a day or so the merits of the resort became apparent though I am not sure it is the best option for couple of seniors.
Tofino is close by and well worth a visit and so is Long Beach and the National Park. We also took a boat trip which gave us an impression of the west coast of VC island. For us it was a chance to crash out after two long train journeys from Jasper and along ferry trip from Prince Rupert.
On reflection ticked most boxes but would be a really great place to go with a young family.

Room Tip: Upper floor on Beachfront units are probably best because of the unless you have young children in which case lower floor would be better.
