Views from dining room and bedrooms were wonderful. Staff were friendly and food was exceptional. The trip to see the brown bears catching salmon among the First Nation community nearby was an amazing experience. The lodge is also close to the seals, sea lions and dolphin colonies.

Went to Sonora Resort the day after our wedding to unwind and relax. With hot tubs everywhere, friendly and accommodating staff, and awesome activities, this place is a must. I have stayed at the finest hotels BC has to offer, and have been to a number of resorts and I must say that this one tops them all.

Such an amazing place - on an island in between the BC mainland and Vancouver Island. We stayed here a week which I beleive is slightly longer than the usual stay but we were never bored or short of ideas of what to do. There are lots of the usual sort of amenities such as a full size tennis court,...

Excellent scenery, food and service. Most hospitable staff. First class accommodation. Fishing was great this trip and the guide did an excellent job. The spa staff were excellent and provided great service and amenities. The restaurant and bar staff were courteous and friendly. The wilderness location lends itself to some great outdoor activities....we biked to and swam at Florence Lake.

Beautiful location and facilities but a lot of misfires on service. We arrived at 3:30 pm on a Thursday and had to wait until 5:30 to get into our rooms. When you're paying top dollar at a resort you don't expect to have to cool your heels for two hours in the lobby. The next day it took us an...
