The resort consists of individual cabins grouped together facing the inner passage channel between Vancouver island and chain of other islands towards the mainland side. It was very clever how the resort arranged the cabins to give each a feeling of isolation in the relatively small area for all cabins. You were close to other cabins, but it usually it did not feel so. Pick you cabin carefully, there are significant differences. Some have a much better view, some have private hot tubs (that was very nice after a day of fishing). We stayed in Cabin 2 and were pleased. One of the reasons to go was to fish. Our experience was great after a slightly rocky start. We weren't prompted to get our fishing licenses the night before and was difficult to get them at 7:00am. This is where Joe, the fishing boat captain, saved the day. He got our license and from then on, he was the greatest. Catching started slow. Of course you are not guaranteed a zillion fish and we were not there at the greatest time of year. Joe just kept at, moving location, changing location, changing lures until we started catching. It was glorious after that. The three of us got four King Salmon and that was a perfect day for us. Lots of interesting boat traffic on the passage. …
Anglers was amazing. They were able to accommodate our large party outside under beautifully lit patio. The food was top notch, the wine selection was decent and the chef's creativity was wonderful. The views are second to none. We look forward to going back to here is one of our special places to visit in Campbell River
Angler’s dining was fantastic. It’s located in the very cozy Dolphins Resirt. Fresh food, prepared very well, large portions. Great service. Great views from the dining room. Overall, this restaurant is a major plus for this area. Dinner reservations are highly recommended.
I can’t say enough about how wonderful the resort is! The staff were amazing and knocked it out of the park to make our daughters wedding seamless and perfect. The location is awesome, the food was fantastic and the cottages are a perfect mix of spotless rustic casual comfort. The bbq on the lawn was delicious, the set up for the wedding was stunning and every night ended with a bonfire on the beach. This was the perfect spot for a rustic/chic beach wedding, while still being fun and relaxing. Don’t hesitate to book a dream wedding here!
Just spent three full days, two half days at this seaside resort. Fabulous fly-fishing for Cutthroat Trout and Dolly Varden. Angler's Restaurant has outstanding food and portions I couldn't finish. Owner Clint Cameron runs a first-class resort.
Spent two nights in Cabin 13 and enjoyed our stay. A beautiful rustic cabin with a fire place, wood provided and access to a private hot tub. Loved the 3 master bedrooms with own bathrooms. Toiletries were provided, Just need your clothes and food.
What a great meal ! From the home baked focaccia bread , to the unbelievable ceaser salad , then to follow with the chicken I had and my husband had the seafood linguini The service was super , our waiter was efficient and polite All around great meal !!! Highly recommend it
3 nights in Cabin #3 lovely view of the ocean, cabin extremely clean and has everything you need just bring your clothes and groceries. Nice hot tub on the deck along with tables and chairs. Dog friendly too. Staff very friendly and helpful. Have booked for next year 2022.
First, the location and the view are terrific but the good experience stops there. We were in cabin 1 last week. There is nothing wrong with the construction even though it was built in 1940 or so. Inside is dark and unappealing. An old lamp on a stand was the primary lighting in the living area. To prepare a meal the lighting is so bad that you cannot see what you are doing on the countertop. The bedrooms are terribly dark and we could not easily see what was in our suitcases. Even if the lighting was fixed to modern standards, the furniture looks like it was purchased at a garage sale. This is not vintage or antique furniture. The coffee table was made out of plywood and stained. Every table surface is either defaced or badly worn. The queen bed squeaked loudly with every move. My GF got up in the middle of the night and slept in the next room. Junky little nightstands were so small you could hardly put a cell phone beside the lamp and tiny fan. The wood cladding around the hot tub was rotten and in need of replacement. I suggest planting some tall trees or building a fence so you don't have to look at the eyesore of a property next door when in the kitchen area. There were very few utensils in the kitchen so options are limited for meals. This would not be so bad except after checking in and settling in we had a call from the front desk that breakfast would not be served in the morning. So I drove into Campbell River to get some items for breakfast. I realize it is hard to get staff now but there is clearly no planning in effect here. No food services was available day or night and their restaurant was one of the things we were looking forward to as we had dined there before. The desk clerk told us that he was cooking for a group of fishermen that were arriving later in the day. They did not have a real cook for this group??? For $400 a night it was very poor value and the clerk understaod this when we cancelled our second night. The hot tub was only warm. Since there is no phone in the room every issue requires walking to the office and explaining the situation and we just could not be bothered any more. It would not take much money to fix the lighting and get some new furniture. After all, the place is nearly full all summer at $400 per night or more! I hope management makes some changes fast before Dolphins gets a terrible reputation.…
My husband and I were at The Dolphins resort for the Family Day along weekend, which also happened to coincide with my hubby’s birthday and Valentine’s Day. We loved our stay in cabin 3, complete with perfect ocean view, wood stove with enough firewood to keep the fire going all weekend, and hot tub on the deck. We had Valentine’s dinner in the Angler’s Dining cabin and it was absolutely delicious. I had the seafood linguine and it was loaded with seafood in every bite! 😋 Our server was fantastic and the ambiance was romantic and cozy. Huge bonus was the biggest snowfall of the winter season, which made it even cozier and more beautiful. We will be back. ❤️
