I have been coming here for meals since I was 12 years old! We drove up for lunch today from Duncan! It has been a few years but what a disappointment. We check the website before we left and did not see anywhere that on Sunday's they only have a very limited brunch menu. Defiantly not what we were looking... More

My wife and I decided while we were on the island to take my parents for dinner at the Kingfisher and what a great decision it was. The service was phenomenal and the food out did the spectacular view. All the seafood was so fresh and the meals were great portions. The chef came out to chat us up and... More

Just back from a weekend visit to Kingfisher. We stayed in the Eagles Suite. It was It was beautiful, clean, bright, lots of windows and an ever-changing view. We began our stay with a trip through the Hydro path in their spa, then enjoyed lunch and then checked in to our spectacular room with a view (which was ready early!).... More

We recently spent three romantic and relaxing days at the Kingfisher (wish we could have stayed longer) to celebrate our anniversary, and we cannot say enough about our stay. From check in to check out, everyone we met was friendly and accommodating. We had a "Romance Suite" with an absolutely phenomenal view, and the housekeeping staff even surprised us with... More

Five girlfriends had an amazing time at the Kingfisher Spa and Resort. We spent time in the hot tub, swimming pool and spa. We ate dinner at the Breakwater. Our meals were delicious but some of the servings were very small including the trio ice cream. Way too small for the price. If you go don't expect to be in... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Kingfisher. There were a few issues with the room the first day. The security lock on the sliding patio door was broken so the door wouldn't open. A manager came and tried to fix it, actually taking the extra lock apart, so we were able to use the door. The next... More

My husband and I stayed at King Fisher last Monday. The room was great, the Hydrospa was fabulous and the food was amazing. We met the new executive chef, Tom Rickinson as we dined. A wonderful free sampler was delivered to each of us that had such wonderful flavours. We had the crispy oysters as an appy which I would... More

I cannot say enough about our time at this resort. Amazing - we stayed in the Orca suite with an ocean view. Loved every minute. Would come back. The spa was great and very good service. Thank you for making our vacation special.

My 2 daughters and I recently stayed at the Kingfisher for a spa retreat - with our busy lives we don't often get away with just the 3 of us. It was absolutely perfect. All the staff were warm, welcoming and smiling - they obviously enjoy their work. Our unit was right on the ground floor - facing the beach.... More

we had a great time at the Kingfisher. The setting is lovely, the grounds well kept. We were in an updated room, I believe. Comfortable beds, new bathroom. One thing: the pool is available to children only for very limited times, so if this is important for you maybe this is not the right place. Dinner and service were very... More
