Dear Niphaphom L, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with Pacific Sands! Tofino is definitely the perfect place to bring your fur babies! With all the beautiful beaches, rain forest hikes, and fresh coastal air, it truly is doggie paradise. It is extremely unfortunate that you experienced some noisy neighbours above you, and I can...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pacific Sands, it was during storm watching season and we went with another couple and it was perfect! The ocean-side cabins are beautifully appointed and so incredibly cozy. The layout of the 1300 sq ft cabins is perfect for a stay with another couple. We will definitely go back the next time we're in...

Dear Chad C, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with Pacific Sands. We are thrilled to hear that your storm watching stay was "perfect".

This has been our favourite spot for over 40 years. A little slice of heaven that is our go-to pre-Christmas get-away. Beautiful accommodations, beautiful location, beautiful people! Peaceful, relaxing, and luxurious.

We were just there for one night, but we'd definitely stay here again. The resort is not much to look at from the outside (a little too rustic for me), but our room was beautifully updated and comfortable. It was also really big for just two people. I recommend staying in a beachfront suite! We were literally steps from the...

Dear Angelica M, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with Pacific Sands! We're glad you got to enjoy one of the recently renovated Beachfront Suites.

Whilst we loved our stay at the resort, we hated the bedroom in the Lighthouse Suites. There is only one window, and it's on the outside walkway facing the parking lot and restaurant area. This would be fine, but the only window blinds are heavy room darkening curtains, which you have to keep closed since everyone can see right into...

Dear NickiandJeff, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with Pacific Sands, and we do appreciate the feedback. In regards to the blinds in the Lighthouse bedroom, I have passed this information on to our Housekeeping Manager, and we will look at alternatives that will allow natural light in while still offering privacy.

Our room was lovely - right on the ocean - full suite and nicely appointed. You take a chance with the weather but the rain and wind create the most amazing surf - we snuggled in the room and watched the waves for hours. The resort has many dvds to choose from and so on really teeming rainy days, you...

We loved our beach-front suite. To look at the ocean first thing in the morning is a real treat. The beach is beautiful, and I'd highly recommend the boardwalk trail next to the beach. Our suite was very nice. The kitchen is well-equipped. We're happy to see that the resort is pet-friendly.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom beach house in summer 2015 and 2016. We stayed as a family of 5 and there was plenty of space for us. My 3 children shared 2 queen beds. I am being a bit picky in giving this place 4 stars but that is due to: - the rather dark and dreary kitchen (but...
