My husband and I arrived at Sonora Resort for 2 nights by large helicopter. This was exciting and we had fantastic views on our 45min flight. The resort is established with beautiful gardens and and in a very picturesque location. The water in front of the resort is alive with wildlife. We spent much of our time watching the seals...

I was so impressed by the setting and over the top quality of Sonora. The resort, the service, everything was perfect. The way our group was handled from start to finish, the friendliness and knowledge of our itinerary by the staff was second to none and lastly, the ability of the management, including Robbyn, to accommodate our request on the...

Unfortunately we weren't able to catch a thing over two days but probably gained weight with the delicious food that we were served. The room was very nice, very clean and each night gifts were left on our bed - caps, reusable water bottles, journals, etc. Activity wise we were limited due to timing of some the activities e.g.shuttle to...

We stayed here for a long weekend, looking for relaxation in a place with a view. We ended up getting much much more. The rooms were beautifully appointed, and we loved that each lodge had two hot tubs for the guests in the building. We also enjoyed the hikes, the spa, the golf simulator, table tennis and the adventure trips.... More

We had the most magical stay at a resort that I have ever had. Your facilities are top notch but what sets you apart is your staff. They are efficient, friendly without being pretentious, and very skilled.

This place exceeded all expectations by 10. I came for fishing with my guide friend. When we checked in I thought I was coming to the Fairmont the service was that good. Only better.

This is an expensive proposition, but very worth the expense. The Resort is tucked away on an idyllic shoreline in the Discovery Islands, and somehow delivers the very best that any traveller could want.

I had the pleasure of a business meeting / fishing trip this week and cannot say enough about it. It was by far the best place I'd ever stayed. Service was unbelievable as was the meals, and resort itself. There was not one single thing I saw that they could have improved on. Do yourself a favour and stay here!
