We were well taken care of and all needs were met with friendly personal service. We were given a phone which really came in handy and food was wonderful. When we missed breakfast the staff offered to make something just for us. The hotel is beautiful, relaxing, and cozy. A truly unique experience.

Hans and Lise, along with the entire staff, are incredibly accommodating. They all work very hard to ensure your visit to their hotel and the island of Dominica is all that you want or need it to be. They are very knowledgeable and helpful in arranging any type of activity that the island has to offer.

The food was reasonably priced and delicious. This restaurant sits on top of a mountain which overlooks the ocean. We were there at sunset and have the most beautiful pictures including a cruise ship all lit up with the sunset in the background.
