Came for a few days at the beginning of October to do the Bear Tours and enjoy the beautiful BC scenery. I really can't speak highly enough about this resort. The service was absolutely fantastic. The resort itself is modern, nicely decorated and truly set in the most amazing location possible. From the time we arrived via sea plane we... More

We would certainly return to Sonora Resort. I was especially impressed with the pristine setting, privacy, and peaceful surroundings. This report is located in such a perfect spot. I'd like to especially thank Ben (boat excursions), Lee (yoga classes and spa treatments) and every staff member in the top notch restaurant and bar for being so accommodating and professional.

I would firstly take little notice of Wendy from Nebraska's review as she is clearly very difficult to please. We also visited in September (end of season) and the staff were a delight.

I have had the pleasure to stay at Sonora Resort last week and I cannot find the words that would be worthy. The location, the amenities, the accommodations, the activities, the food , and I have to single out the staff ! They truly ADD to the overall experience. It is not a cheap trip but worth every penny.

Get a front row seat to one of coastal BC's most abundant and active areas for wildlife of all kinds. The resort is top drawer for its staff, facilities and variety of activities. Staff are particularly friendly, engaging and knowledgeable about the area and its natural wonders. Stayed five nights and there was never a dull moment.
