This is the second time I've been to the resort, but my wife and her family have been every year for the last five. I just can't say enough about this special place. We've been to some beautiful spots, stayed in luxurious accomodations, and dined in fine restaurants around the world, but Sonora is...different. The food is consistently outstanding, the staff seem to look for a reason to go above and beyond at every opportunity, and the locale is without compare. I left envigorated and inspired. Congratulations and thank you again to the wonderful team at Sonora - especially Wayne and Donna.

OK, so... this place is just Amazing!
We saw Killer Whales, Grizzly, Eagles...
We fished a 13Kg Salmon that was bigger than my 5 years old!
Hikes in the forest, relax in the very nice Coho Lodge (2 bedrooms with a shared living room- ideal for a family of 4).
Mini golf, tennis, pool...
What a beautiful and relaxing stay...

Our review of Sonora Resort would seem as though we just cut-and-pasted from the preceding reviews, so I'll make this short. The superlatives that have been used to describe the Resort are well-deserved. The accommodations, facilities, staff, cuisine, even the helicopter transportation, were first-rate. The activities were enjoyable for the non-fisherman (wife) and fisherman (me), as well as our nine year-old daughter (fisherman-in-the-making). Particularly memorable was the eco-touring by boat and sea kayak, highlighted by the narrated (thanks, Aaron and Albert!) viewing of orca, white-sided dolphin, Dall's porpoises, bald eagles, and harbor seals. We enjoyed our prior family trips to other B.C. resorts in Sooke, Pender Island, Parksville, and Tofino. This one exceeds all of them.

After reading all the amazing reviews of Sonora we did arrive with high expectations and it lived up to every one of them. From the minute you are met at the dock ( by name) the staff go out of their way to be helpful. The setting is amazing and the view from our room of seals, eagles and the tide coming in and out was breath taking. We enjoyed following the well- marked trails and a swim in Florence Lake is well worth the effort of getting in!
We must have been the only people there who were not going fishing ( not the first choice for a vegetarian!) but the sea kayaking was great even for a beginner and the eco tour was two hours of excitement as we saw orcas, seals, a sea lion, dall's porpoise, eagles and even whirlpools. The food lived up to its reputation. We had enjoyed the more "basic menu" for our first two nights but my husband wanted to try the six course tasting menu .... as we were taken to our seats a personal menu was produced for me with six vegetarian dishes on.... I have kept the menu as a souvenir ......
This was five days of luxury in awesome surroundings. I doubt that anywhere we stay in the future will compare.

We went to Sonora with the whole family (children of 17, 8 and 3) to celebrate my wife's birthday and it has been an incredible experience. I travel 220 days per year and have seen many hotels and resorts but Sonora Resort is the best.

Amazing site and infrastructure, great activities (we did the glacier picnic, the eco-tour and sea kayaking), superb food with a very decent cellar... and an amazing staff: friendly, professional, attentive... just perfect. So, thank you Sean, Dona, Daniel, Rebecca, Stan and all the others for an unforgettable stay and we cannot wait to be back...
