Some friends and I rented a beach house for a long weekend, and we are so glad we did. The beach house was incredible, with comfortable beds, a huge bath tub, and ocean views. I spent many blissful hours sitting on our private patio, just watching the crashing waves and relaxing. The Cox Bay beach that Pacific Sands faces is...

The resort staff are very nice and friendly. We rented a 2 bedroom in the light house. I would recommend renting the villa. We wanted to but it was booked and available for one night only. The beach is very nice. they provide rain jackets which is nice. Great Family resort/

Service at reception was great. We love the layout of the lighthouse rooms. Close access to the beach is great and we love the deck with great ocean views. Thanks for another wonderful stay! We will be bak again.

Great place to stay quiet, relaxing. The resort is on the beach, good walking trails and easy access to Tofino. Suites are great, well appointed and very clean. They even supply rain slickers for those rainy Tofino days.

Friendly staff and superb location. Good choice of rooms and suites for families or friends travelling together as well as couples. Storm watching can be a great time to go and watch the waves and the surfers.

We had some time to spend the first day on the west side of the island so checked around a few resorts to see their accommodation options. The Beach House we chose topped anything that we had seen. I can't imagine a better view from your living room or bedroom. The suite was exceptionally well equipped and cared for. Although...
