Excellent location on Cox Beach! Friendly, helpful staff. Good accommodation with full kitchen and large gas BBQ's available in the gazebo fire pit as well as S'mores every night. Numerous good restaurant choices in Tofino - recommend Wolf in the Mist.

The beach houses are RIGHT on the beach. Expensive, but worth the price. Excellent well appointed kitchens, with full size appliances and good washer dryer as well. HOT showers outside to rinse off, and good bedrooms and baths (3 bathrooms for 2 bedroom unit). Downside, need to have small safes in rooms for valuable lockup when on beach, out hiking...

What a stunning location! We rented a Lighthouse Suite with an ocean view and it was brilliant. It was well equipped, clean and just big enough for two. Waking up in the morning to see the breakers on the beach was wonderful. The reception and housekeeping were professional and polite. You do need a car to stay but the benefits...

Loved our room at PS! Extremely well maintained inside and out. Well equipped, comfortable units. I would have liked a king size bed but the bed & bedding were exceptionally comfortable. We were in a ground unit & could hear guests walking around upstairs but only during reasonable hours so it wasn't problematic. I'd recommend an upper floor to avoid...

Gorgeous property right on the beach. Quiet and private and close to Tofino. Would recommend this to families and couples. It is such a pleasure to step out and walk to the beach in the morning coffee in hand and watch the waves roll in and all the surfers.

We spent a week at Pacific Sands Beach Resort on beautiful Cox Bay in Tofino on Vancouver Island. It was one of the best if not the best vacations we have ever had. We had an oceanfront suite with a kitchenette and a balcony that gave us a 180 degree view of the bay. Watching the sunset while sitting at...

Stayed on the bottom floor of a lighthouse suite. Would recommend the upper floors for a better view . No phone in the suite - No A/C , no pool or hot tub , no king size beds , no restaurant . Need to drive or cab it to town for restaurants .
