    Great place for kids - staff very friendly and helpful. The unit was older but very well maintained and clean. Parksville is a great holiday place although disappointing that a few of the restaurants were all closed on Mondays.

    Second time we've stayed at Ocean Sands - very clean, well situated, and very, very well-managed hotel. Beautiful ocean views, quiet, and spacious suites. We will definitely be back - feels like home away from home!
