Vienna, Austria
Reviewed 21 August 2015 via mobile

Excellent food but poor service. Some of the waiters seem disinterested. Room a bit dated, no flatscreen TV. Beds are badly made, fridge not refilled, the whole room service not 5 stars worth. Spa good but nothing special. Some of the staff rude. All and all, fantastic food, view, nature but poor service.

What makes this place special and enjoyable really is the food. The food is creative and well cooked with high quality ingredients. I have spent three days and really liked enjoying the food on the terrace overlooking the water with seals playing in the water and the mountains in the background. The hotel as such, in particular the rooms, are...

Just back from four nights in Sonora Resort and we had a brilliant time. We had been very busy touring Canada for the last two weeks so this was a perfect break in our hectic schedule. We did an eco tour, and went salmon fishing (caught three huge salmon - very exciting which we are getting smoked and sent to...

You truly have to go to experience in person, none of the photographs taken, no matter how fabulous, do the beauty of this Island area and unique Eco-system justice. The staff is world class as is the dinning. Once in a lifetime trip that was wonderful in so many ways. Fishing fantastic, our group had a 22 and 25 lbs...

This resort is great, but falls significantly short of being exceptional on a world stage. Similar priced resorts in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Europe offer significant better levels of service and attention to detail. This doesn't take away from its great setting, unique experience - and to be honest - most of the guests will love it as for...

We visited Sonora with our 12 and 10 year old children. We spent two afternoons fishing with our guide Ben who was a great guy. He loves what he does and our time spent with him was very enjoyable. We caught about 15 salmon and released a few but kept 12 to be sent home to us after processing. Our...

That was my dream place to go and finally we went there for two nights. Food style was French and very fancy. Large window faces the lake and wonderful scenery. Staff was very friendly. Lots of activity options in the hotel, e.g. mini golf, tennis, spa, swimming pool, biking, theater etc. In terms of outdoor activities, it is a right...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sonora. We are a family of five with three teenagers and stayed in Yuculta Lodge, which was lovely with gorgeous views. The fishing, hiking, spa and ecotour were all terrific. We really enjoyed the food but wished seafood was featured a bit more. Most important, the staff was wonderful - kind, enthusiastic and always...
