We visited at the beginning of September and were very lucky with the weather! We had a 3 night stay, every day reaching 25 degrees c. The view from our room was unbeatable, we were lucky to see the most beautiful sunsets from the comfort of our porch. Because it was so warm we enjoyed some time on the beach...

This is a top class resort. Four of us stayed in Beach Villa and had four magic days. Overlooking the ocean from living room and one bedroom it is just so relaxing. We walked on the beach and on forest trails watched a good sunset and lived the good life. Staff at reception were great very helpful and arranged the...

This is the 5th year in a row that my mom and I have stayed here. We always get a beach house and trust me, it is worth every penny! The staff are wonderful, the view from the beach house is out of this world, and the beach house itself has everything you could possibly need to feel right at...

This is our second time to the Pacific Sands this year. The first time, we stayed in a 2 bedroom beach house that was amazing. And couldn't have been more perfect. This time we are in a lodge suite that's nice, but nowhere near as nice as the beach house. The kitchen is very tiny with little counter space. This...

Markus M, Guest Relations Manager at Pacific Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review

Dear Luvs2renno, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with Pacific Sands. I sincerely apologized that certain aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations. The Beach Houses you previously stayed in are the largest and most luxurious units we have on the property. Alternatively the Lodge Suites still offer amazing views of the ocean,...

The Pacific Sands keeps getting better and better. This was our third stay at the resort and with the additions of the Surf Sisters and the Surfside Grill, our six night stay was perfect. We ate dinner at the grill twice and they were super accommodating to dietary restrictions. My fish and chips order became grilled fish and a delicious...

I'm a big fan of this resort, proved by the fact that this was my third time there. And it's a long drive from Edmonton! Not only are they a pet friendly resort , they provide dog towels, food bowls and welcoming Milk Bones - along with chocolate for me! All the staff are welcoming and very helpful. They know...

Back to one of our most favourite spots to visit. We have celebrated a number of our anniversary's here and just shared another with Daughter and her family.

Dear John W, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with Pacific Sands! Thank you for the continued loyalty over the years, we appreciate it. We definitely live in surfer's paradise where giant storms generate great swells miles offshore, they end up organizing and gaining energy as they move across the Pacific, and when they finally unload...

This hotel is fabulous! We stayed in the Sand Dollar Suite and it was huge....to huge for us! We should've had another couple with us, as there were two big bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen and dining room. Gorgeous wrap around deck with hot tub as well. The best part?...right on the beach. We could open all our windows and...

We had a two bedroom beach house, 2 storey with fireplace and TV in living room and main bedroom. Views were glorious and beach literally steps from the patio.

This is my favourite place to stay on the West Coast - the air is so clean, beach is clean , wonderful for surfing, eagles fly overhead. Pacific Sands has beautiful accomodations with the beach a few steps away. We had a family reunion - it was perfect!
