I stayed here in Februrary this year and my experience was different in June. This review is of room 204. We bought a package through travelzoon for 279 we got three nights mid week stay with. 75$ dining credit and 75$ spa credit. So the value for this was awesome.

We enjoyed the perfectly kept gardens, driftwood sculptures and our wonderful spa treatments. We stayed in a room in the upper section of the hotel: it had been renovated nicely and contained a large TV and a wall fireplace. We also had our own little patio and chairs out overlooking the resort and ocean. The hydropath was neat, as was... More

Four of us stayed here for four nights on a college reunion. We had great rooms which overlooked the water and afforded a spectacular view of the mountains and local wildlife which included bald eagles sitting on the rocks on the shore. The rooms were nicely appointed and included a small kitchenette with microwave, fridge, and basic necessities. The hotel... More

We had a beautiful stay for our anniversary. Pool area was very lovely. Nice spa. Grounds are kept very well. Love the sandy patch with lounge chairs. Also brunch at the Breakwater was excellent. Room 110 was quiet and had a nice patio with quick walk to all amenities.

The resort itself is beautiful and the location is stunning. The restaurant menu although small has excellent variety and both the food and service were great. In fact all the staff throughout the hotel are extremely helpful and friendly. As part of our stay we indulged in the pacific mist hydropath. A must if you are planning to go, because... More

Traveling the Island with thoughts of spending the night in the area led me to research hotels on Trip Advisor. Though many reports don't speak favourably of the service, I am happy to be reporting the opposite. We had no reservation so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was greeted by the most friendly young lady working the front... More

We stayed in one of the Arbutus suites which is close to the water. The view and the peace and quiet of the spot was very pleasant, at one time there was some Otters playing out on the rocks not far from shore. Although adequate the suite was showing some wear and tear and initially had kind of an odd... More

Six friends and I recently spent three nights at Kingfisher and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The grounds, the rooms, the spa, the restaurant all were first rate. The bald eagles sitting on the rocks, seals, otters and sea lions swimming by made it all the more enjoyable. The only small item I might ask for improvement on is their breakfast service... More
