My wife and I stayed here recently for a two day getaway. The resort is actually quite lovely,and although it's a bit of a journey getting there it's a beautiful journey. The rooms was nice, clean and modern enough, the grounds fairly well kept and the spa services were ok according to my wife, not everything was open which was... 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

I am suppose to be getting married in June, we fell in love with the beauty of the location. All elements of planning have been disorganized, unresponsive, unclear and extremely unprofessional. We have been passed off from planner to planner. Now we are on the 3rd wedding coordinator, each one has left or quit. Every time we get a new... More

The new owners don't seem to care at all about service or maintenance. The pools, hot tubs and restaurants are closed until April for the second winter in a row and will not reopen until April!! What's the point of buying this beautiful resort if you are not going to run it!?? We have been going to Poets since they... More
