A great little inn on a hill with gorgeous views and wonderfully friendly staff (who will do anything for you). Delicious breakfasts. They were really helpful in getting us to diving class and helping with a flat tire (beware drivers in Dominica the road from the airport can be a bit challenging for a US city driver)

It is a long drive through the jungle, along the ocean & over the mountains from the Airport, we recommend having Lise set up the Taxi for you, they bill it to your room. Our room had a great balcony view...

Remarkable view, cozy, great food, great bar. Fantastic host. Shuttle will take you and pick you up wherever you need to go. Centrally located makes it ideal for family visiting Ross University students. Beach just minutes away with bar and restaurants(for persons with Ross guest passes). Wi Fi with good speed.

We stayed at Champs for 3 nights. Clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was included and was excellent. There is a restaurant on site and the food and service was good. Being located at the top of a hill, there was a fantastic view of Portsmouth and the ocean at all times. i would reccomend it.
