Reviews for Clayoquot Wilderness Resort
I have no doubt that the reviews here accurately reflect the experience. But last month our reservation was rejected because we had a child under six years old. I don't think I can agree that this resort is good for families if they reject those with young families. Having a four year old at the resort evidently ruins the experience for other families. This seems to contradict the family-friendly experience that is claimed, and the overall casual nature of BC experiences. Isn't the sound of kids at play something that contributes positively to the resort?

It's difficult to put in writing how much of an outstanding time we had . Everything was top drawer, best of the best, over the top, superb, set the bar at a level that would be difficult to exceed! Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and wanting to make sure our time visiting was the best we could ever hope for, and it was! Food is described as Contemporary Coastal, but also comfortable, I would have to agree, the kitchen having earned high distinction by Relais & Chateaux! Our accommodations were along the waterfront, furnished with antique and very comfortable furniture, full bathroom facilities, as well as all amenities needed to ensure our stay was perfect. Activities we participated in were wildlife watching from a Zodiac allowing us to get up close to gray whales, sea otters, and bears, but maintaining a non threatening distance. Horseback riding and then hiking got us into the rainforest for up close and personal viewing of the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere. Our fishing adventure was successful, and our catch of Coho Salmon is being processed to be sent home. All guides were young, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Transportation to and from the camp was via seaplane out of Vancouver airport and is weather dependent. The saying you can't do anything about the weather is true because our trip into camp was delayed a day because of foggy weather. We were there to relax and enjoy so we enjoyed the overnight accommodations provided at a luxury airport hotel at no additional cost. I see us returning in the future, most likely with the rest of our family so they too can enjoy this wonderful experience!

Could talk for ages about the wonders of this place, everything from the food to the staff is exceptional. Nothing is too much to ask here and the tailored experience is what makes it so special. It really is an escape and left us feeling quite emotional to be leaving and returning to 'reality'. Each day they arrange an adventure-packed schedule based on what it is you've asked to do and the guides that take you on the various activities are all fantastic and so passionate about what it is they're doing. After days out it was so nice to come back to such exceptional food and lovely waiting staff who were keen to here about our day. It may be an investment staying here but one you definitely won't regret!

We just returned from our third visit to Clayoquot. We were curious whether we'd like it as well as we have in the past, given the change in management. I am pleased to say that it is as wonderful as we remembered from our first two trips. Where Clayoquot really shines is with their service. Two examples. First, our daughter was disappointed when she was unable to find a backgammon set in the games tent. No problem, they sent to Torino for one and the next day she was playing backgammon. On our last evening the manager asked if there were any activities we wished we had been able to do during our visit. My other daughter suggested a cooking class with the chef would be fun. No problem -- while we waited for our seaplane flight out the next afternoon she and I learned to make ravioli under the direction of one of the assistant chefs. This place is truly remarkable. It is pricey, but worth every penny. If you can afford the price, go. You won't regret it.

This trip had been a long time in the planning and a surprise 50th for my friend and myself. This amazing getaway just exceeded all expectations for us all. Our accommodation was incredible, from the cosy, comfy bed to an fantastic outdoor shower. The food was great and the staff could not do enough to please. Manager Grant was so passionate and it shows through his staff as well. He went out of his way to make sure we had every thing that we needed. The activities were personalized and very enjoyable. You can do as little or much as you like. Our guides were fabulous, a big shout out to Stephe and Joel. Jamie cooked a fabulous dinner on the beach and the wonderful restaurant manager was incredible. We will be back but I highly recommend the suggestion given about travel insurance. We lost a day due to poor weather and this is quite a lot of money to lose, as this resort is pricey. To finish, we have stayed at many luxury resorts around the world and would rate this up there with some of the best. Especially service, they should be very proud of the fabulous staff.
