I really enjoyed the hotel, the staff, and the amenities. The service was excellent, the room was clean and fresh. The food choices were varied and well-prepared. The activities were efficiently coordinated ad executed with clock work precision. I really enjoyed my stay as I got lots of much needed rest, sightseeing opportunities, and a significantly dose of Dominican culture....

The staff is pleasant, the rooms are large with great views, the food at the restaurant is superb as is the general demeanour of the staff. The WiFi is rather good for a hotel provided service however signal drops off in the bathroom.

I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. We had an ocean view room which was of good size, very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very big, and also immaculately clean. The food in the restaurant was superb and the position of the restaurant seating on the terrace overlooking the sea makes for a very pleasant dining experience....

If you can get a room stay here. Definitely best place to stay in town. The surrounding's are fun and staff is charming and helpful. Dinner buffet had limited selection but it was all delicious. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Iron and board in the room which was great since I was here on business.

Thought it was a very nice hotel and definitely would stay there again. Just south of the old town section of Roseau so you can easily walk throughout and to the Botanic Gardens. The rooms are pretty big and many have great views and balconies right over the edge of the Sea. The room we had was a little beat...

I stayed in the Fort Room and so my review is best on this. Stayed there for a week of meetings. The Fort Rooms are basic. The bathroom was outdated however the bedroom area was comfortable. Hot water took some skill to get as the H is cold and C is hot. There was a mini fridge, iron and board...

The hotel has rustic a charm and since I only spent one night, I did not have a chance to really experience the property fully. However the staff provided good service and the room was clean. I had to request a converter for the electrical outlet because it was 220V. The door on the closet was not working properly and...
