Reflecting the passion of the Pacific is not something that the Black Rock resort takes lightly and if you’re fond of swollen seas, cosy nooks and plenty of indulgence, then you’ll find it all here in bucket-loads. This is one of the finest oceanfront properties on Vancouver Island and from the natural light-enticing architecture to the spiritually-uplifting spa services; the whole experience is all about harnessing that awesome organic energy.

Resort is beautiful, clean and well maintained. We found the onsite restaurant a little pricey. Would recommend a short drive to the main street in Ucluelet for meals. On the ocean along the "Wild Coast Trail" so go for a walk and storm watch.

We went there right after New Year's on one of the BC Ferries Vacation deals. Amazing value. The hotel property is wonderful. Great amenities and, the storm watching from the comfort of your room, stunning and impressive! Only complaint was at check-in. The agent at the desk could not have been any nastier. Clearly she was having a bad day.

My wife and I enjoyed our first stay about 7 years ago and were fortunate to snag a great deal through BC Ferries Vacations just after New Years. Total for 3 nights, 2 adults including ferry (round trip from Vancouver) and taxes for $566CAD. Consider the ferry alone is almost $200 round trip so this represents great value. We love this place.

My wife and I enjoyed our first stay about 7 years ago and were fortunate to snag a great deal through BC Ferries Vacations just after New Years. Total for 3 nights, 2 adults including ferry (round trip from Vancouver) and taxes for $566CAD. Consider the ferry alone is almost $200 round trip so this represents great value. We love this place. The hotel is beautifully situated right on the ocean and our 1 bedroom studio was extremely comfortable and included a king bed, kitchenette, great soaker tub, rainfall shower and gas fireplace. Staff were friendly so I was surprised to see negative reviews. Hotel is clean and room was made up each day. We had dinner one night in the bar and enjoyed nachos and clam chowder soup. We visited during a storm which made for some spectacular scenery and a power outage. The hotel gas a generator to keep the basics running, but you won’t have power in the rooms. We figure it was a regular occurrence and just enjoyed it as part of our adventure. If we can get another deal like this we’ll be back for sure!!! This is such a beautiful part of the world, rain or shine. We hope the staff get to enjoy some well deserved time off during the 2 week closure in Jan. Read less

BlackRock was a wonderful stay. First class all the way. Rooms were excellent, unique touches like fireplace, balconies, heated bathroom floors and soaker tub - all nice extras. Rooms are a bit expensive, but worth the cost. Had negative experiences with ‘Fetch’ restaurant on site, only aspect I would not recommend.

We had our Christmas dinner here 4 years ago and it was great. This year it was overpriced, cold, small servings. The plate of turkey at the gospel mission looked more appetizing. The included gratuity was presumptuous considering our waiter did not refill the water, did not ask if we wanted coffee and he seemed rushed as did the other staff. We… Read more
We had our Christmas dinner here 4 years ago and it was great. This year it was overpriced, cold, small servings. The plate of turkey at the gospel mission looked more appetizing. The included gratuity was presumptuous considering our waiter did not refill the water, did not ask if we wanted coffee and he seemed rushed as did the other staff. We were charged $60 for a $12 bottle of wine plus $32 for a tip which I find insulting. Our total bill was $227 for 2 people. Are we going back? NEVER Read less
