I visited Poet's Cove on Sunday June 28th by boat, we stopped at the marina, I briefly talked to a Jarod, a really helpful person. We tied our boat up for a couple of hours without charge. Then we went up to the pool, had a couple of ice creams, Michael in the Cafe was really nice, and we had... More

While cruising the gulf islands we stopped at Poets Cove for a dinner and drinks. The food and service was OK and the bill was $190 most of it alcohol and taxes. I left a $20 tip which I considered quite generous. After I had paid and while we were preparing to leave our waitress returned to our table to... More

Where do I begin!? My experience at Poets Cove was beyond incredible. My husband and I hosted over 100 people at Poets Cove on May 30th 2015 for our wedding, and we could not have been happier. From the beginning, the staff were extremely helpful. We visited a year prior to our wedding and the event planner showed us all... More

I've been going to Poet's Cove for many years as a marina guest. This time we booked the Vancouver Sun "special deal". It's a beautiful, relaxing place. My friend had 2 excellent massages and body treatments at the Spa. Only the pub was open. We had 40 minute waits for meals. The kitchen seemed to have not enough groceries to... More

Went to this resort to celebrate our anniversary and our expectations were met. Our room was well decorated and clean. The balcony overlooked the bay and we completely relaxed enjoying the sun and the view. Only complaint was that because we were there during the off season, only pub restaurant was open (would not recommend eating there) and their Eucalyptus... More

We had our wedding here during the off-season in March 2015. Despite the fact that most of the resort was closed for the season (restaurant, amenities, lodge, etc), the staff made it into an enjoyable experience. Chef Alex opened the kitchen for us for our wedding weekend. He catered a fixed plate menu for 30-40 for our rehearsal dinner as... More

We were impressed by the location but not the building design. Not sure what they were trying to achieve but it looks like the architect pulled a bunch of different plans out of an old drawer. There is no continuity and the design of the main resort does not fit with the natural beauty of the island. Unfortunate because it... More
