The hotel

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. Fine dining at the Fetch Restaurant, splendid cotching at the Float Lounge and one of the most incredible terrace areas ever, all do their utmost to compliment the superb natural environment.

My experience with the booking agent at Black Rock Oceanfront Resort is excellent, her name is Krista, she follow up so well, I try to book for the room in early July, but by that time the weather is still not stable, and I have called about five times to Krista to discuss my plan, she was so patience to go through with me, this is the service which I called service. Finally I change my plan to mid July, which the weather turn out to be excellent. Next time when I book again, I shall definitely book direct with resort directly, (there was another agent Julia was helping me one time too), I just want to point out the whole resort reservation team is excellent , especially Krista. The hotel itself is nice, quiet, and the service is friendly , the only thing is the room have no air condition , and you need to open up a little of the window at night to sleep , and there will be chance of mosquito to come in , I suggest the resort to have air condition in room, so the guest can have a choice to either open or close their window at night, (the temperature is cool, is only for stopping the mosquito) then will be prefect , overall is a very relax and enjoyable trip , for sure I shall go again .

We visit Blackrock at least once a year and decided to get married here in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic after restrictions had been lifted in a very small ceremony of the people in our “bubble”. Blackrock made the experience wonderful while maintaining all safety protocols, the village is incredibly friendly and welcoming, the surrounding scenery is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The hotel was clean and gorgeous as it always is and the the staff were wonderful and accommodating despite all the challenges of this time. The food in the restaurant on site and the food for our reception was OUTSTANDING. We love blackrock and will be returning for years to come, nothing beats a blackrock ocean view either in the summer or the off season you can’t go wrong ! Read less

It has been a decade since Black Rock Resort & Spa opened, giving Ucluelet a whole new feel. This ocean community now had a world -class & stunningly beautiful hotel complex, built in granite & glass, looking out over rugged coast-line, but also with easy access to a wonderful calm beach, just down & to the left, called Big Beach. The structure was so right for the environment which surrounds it. It stands out but it blends right in. The complex is part hotel & part privately owned apartments, which can only be inhabited for a limited time of the year by owners & then put back into the pool for use by the resort. Units range in size & aspect, so lots of choices are on offer. The interior of the resort exhibits the same rightness for place & context as the exterior, & the grace of service followed by staff maintains that perfect balance . The service is excellent but never too formal. There is a friendliness & welcome which immediately makes all feel at home as well as well cared for, with Ukee residents — the name locals call Ucluelet — made to feel as welcome as out of town & often high-flying guest are. Locals, in fact, are given a 10 pct discount in the restaurant, recently renovated & renamed Currents. The hotel clearly knows it needs the locals to come often especially in the more rainy & cold months when traveling guests seek warmer climes. The announcement Black Rock was reopening on June 15 spoke to that same spirit evident in all the resort’s dealings over the past decade. Management released a fairly long & thoughtful email, also posted on its web-site, heralding a June 15 reopening, talking about the reopening procedures it had put in place to deal with our post-pandemic Brave New World & the phase 2 B.C. government regulations it would follow. It expressed the sentiment that it was ready to again “celebrate life”, always with care & safety & concern for its various communities - staff, guests & the wider Ukee community in which it operates. First, reassuring all that it had the resources & experience to meet the challenges of the times, it said it was sharing them with smaller businesses in Ukee which may not have those resources easily at hand, then referring readers to various links posted at the bottom of the email. Bravo. BR will be different for many reasons in these new times. Just before lockdown it renovated both its eating spots, renaming then both, readying them for its second decade of life. giving both — now Currents & The Float Lounge — a more open & contemporary feel. The spa is not yet opening but all else is good to go. Go. Posted by S Fuller Read less
