Anchorage Hotel is very nice and homely place to visit, kind and helpful staff great customer service all around. U will feel so welcome when u arrive at Anchorage Hotel Two thumbs up!!! Shout out to their bilingual staff who speak spanish!
My sister and I stayed here in May, this was our first visit to the island of Dominica and although the hotel is a little dated and the food is not that good (except breakfast which was always really good), the staff are fabulous. Everyone is very friendly and accomodating, the room was clean and the view is spectacular. Dominicans love their island and rightly so. When you visit ask, for Frank Edwards, tour guide extraodinaire. He was amazing and took us to so many places and was always helpful and attentive and full of information, he got us local beverages to sample, pointed out the different fruits and vegetation - Frank goes above and beyond every time.
The diving was great. The Dive center staff very kind and helpful. Dive sites were really nice. Food was poor (always the same menu and pricey), most of the guests didn't dine at the hotel. The reception staff although friendly are not very reliable. Overall service was not organized, had to insist on getting service and activities that were booked. Overall a bit overpriced for the service received.
The hotel is indeed dated. If they do major renovations it would be such an amazing place. The staff is great especially Shama and the other ladies at reception. The food was okay. The menu was very limited and pricey! It's also in a great location. I would definitely return..
