    Hotel is made based on the old Fort with quite interesting historical background, thus the design is unusual and beatiful. Nice "infinity" pool with the sea vew is available at hotel premises, though it is small and only up to 10 guests can use it at a time. Might be a problem during high season.

    We were given the room located at the far end of the fort, almost above the busy street. It would have been ok in general, if only at 6 AM one morning loud noise from the grass-cutter didn't awoke us. That was done at the lawn near the church opposite the street, but we couldn't sleep any more. On our complaints the reception just noted that as soon as this is not the Fort they could do nothing. Noone from the hotel approached the worker to negotiate the issue, and we could "enjoy" the sound for the next three hours. So if you are suggested the rooms #501-502 be aware of grass-cutting early rise possibility. In addition probably preparing for the high season hotel staff was constantly repairing something at the hotel territory, that didn't add any comfort to our stay. I should also note that the Activities desk provide overpriced tours, though it seems to be overall Dominica feature. We enjoyed the waterfalls (Trafalgar etc.), but the ride to Indian river combined with rainforest wasn't worth the price paid - swiming in the sea (that was part of the tour in the presentation) was merely impossible as the guide took us to very dirty beach with lot's of plastic/litter drifting in the water. And agreeing that this place is not suitable for swiming he didn't suggest any other options, just took us further to the rainforest, where we arrived to early to see the unique parrots of Dominica. Though maybe it was our unlucky day, that began with the grass-cutter! :)

    Superb

    No doubt that this is the closest Dominica comes to a luxury hotel that feels completely safe. Beautiful location right on the Roseau boardwalk, stunning ocean views from the rooms facing the sea, wonderful pool area, excellent dining and more-than-great cocktails served by an amazingly friendly bar staff.

    Reception desk team were rather snobbish and bear in mind that Roseau downtown is not a charming place to be after sunset unless you have a thing for dark ramshackle sheds and colourful/suspicious characters on drugs.

    Very good

    Good quality/price: a lot of facilities like jacuzzi, swimming pool, gym... Nice and confortable room, well equipped with the essentials, iron and ironing board, hairdrier but not with the kitchen, just a micro- fridge.. Staff very friendly and efficient. I recommend it. :)

    Superb

    The ambiance was great the location central.Having stayed there years ago I was quite surprised of the enormous extension. Sorry I had to check out one day early due to unavailability of room.

    Its a bit pricy but the service compensated

    Good

    Great location, nice infinity pool and lovely view of the sunset

    Service levels are lower than average - it can take up to 1 hour for food to be served, have gone to pick up my own menu more than once. Staff seem disgruntled to serve you - although you are paying more than what the hotel is really worth...

    Exceptional

    I loved the warmth of the staff, the ambiance of the hotel. The cleanliness of the room, the location of the hotel, the view from my room was breath taking at sun up and sun down. The food was great.

    That I had to check out I wish my stay was longer.

    Fabulous

    Hotel is conveniently located and its good for making daytrips around the island. Room was spacious and clean and hot water with good pressure was all the time available. Pool was good as well as the sun terrace services.

    Staff was unfriendly and it is the only place where we had problems with currency changes in the island. Room was nice but outside noises distrurbed a bit in night-time. Food in the hotel is overpriced but there are some nice restaurants around the area.

    We thought the ocean front room was pretty expensive. The food was reasonable and good and the breakfasts were excellent.
