Taken me a while to write this review but the memories are still crystal clear from my wife's and my trip in September 2015. Could not fault anything in truth, from arrival via Helicopter to the (sad) departure via Seaplane. Most excellent rooms, fantastic views, friendly & approachable staff and the wildlife is not bad either! Dining was to a... More

We had a wonderful relaxing stay. Staff was courteous and professional. Food was fantastic. The room was clean and comfortable. The view on the island is breath taking. Would definitely recommend Sonora Resort to any one for an extremely relaxing experience. The spa was luxurious and again the staff were absolutely wonderful.

My wife and I spent two nights here. It is really excellent. How they managed to build such a perfectly finished hotel so far from anywhere is a mystery to me. It has everything, including an indoor tennis court.We went primarily for the bear watching, which was a great success. The staff were first class as were the food and... More

This is sheer luxury from start to finish. It is all inclusive with good quality products. The welcome reception is good, and staff are so helpful. It was a pleasure to stay there. Rooms were well stocked with amenities, and the facilities were good. Beds were comfortable, and the views from the windows were breathtaking. Wifi and the business centre... More

What a wonderful place to spend our 45th anniversary! We were greeted by staff as we stepped off the boat and taken directly to a lounge where we were given a complimentary glass of wine and a couple of Hors d'Oeuvres to enjoy while we filled out the registration form.

I've travelled to many resorts around the world. And in every case, there's always a weakness. Maybe the food, or the service. In the case of Sonora, there were no misses. Yes, it can get pricey, but you more than get what you pay for. No nickel and diming your mini bar or wine with dinner. What's included is plentiful... More

Ocean front luxury Hotel Resort with fishing , bear watching, whales, seals, eagles, you name it. All the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Restaurant food was very good. I like the all inclusive package where food and lodging was looked after, just the gratuities at the end of our stay.
