My husband and I spent 8 nights at this beautiful place and enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, the driving from the main road is a little bit too tough but I guess that's the price of being secluded in a forest which by the way you start admiring right from the beginning. This is not a place for everyone... More

Ok, so the drive in shakes your bones. The cabins don't have windows. Birds fly in and eat your food. The place is run off a car battery, and you your water comes out of the River behind the cabins. At night, the noise from the waterfall is only eclipsed by the noise from the animals, and if it rains,... More

Had a fabulous time staying at Roots. Drove all over island exploring sites and natural treasures like Sari Sari Falls and Scotts Head. Nico was always available with suggestions and details and how to get there. Food was delicious and plentiful. Room was very relaxing with hammock and beautiful view of jungle. Hint: Bring binoculars to try and see parrots.

Stayed here with my girlfriend and it was amazing. Truly off the grid and in the middle of the jungle. Good food and from the minute we arrived, after the crazy off-roading path, I never once thought about email or cell phone.Nico was a great host!

From the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a great experience. The road was a bit bumpy, but I guess that’s what keeps this place so genuine. Nico was a great host, excellent cook, and very helpful with everything we needed. He knows the island and will give you tips to visit places that are not... More

The reviews of this place are honest. Be aware it changed owners May '13. It's a good setting with jungle sounds etc yet pretty free of bugs. Facilities like a good camper van perhaps. If you've not experienced any sort of jungle it could be amazing. If you want real jungle (and bugs of course) try an eco lodge in... More

We spent 6 days in the rain forest at Roots Jungle retreat. This was quite an amazing experience to be in the middle of nowhere with birds as nearest neighbours. Waking up in the morning with the noise of the forest was fantastic. Even if the road is a real challenge and the comfort simple, we appreciated a lot. Nico... More

Our family had a great time at roots. We loved the location in the rain forest. the rain at night falling on the tin roof with all the windows open was incredible. Nico is a great host who is very personable and made everybody feel welcome. We enjoyed a special New Years Eve there with the other six guests and... More

Dominica in itself is one of the most amazing places my husband and I have visited, and the stay at Roots just made the experience even more amazing. What can we say, fantastic location, amazing and friendly staff, and nothing is too much trouble for Nico who runs the retreat. Whether you want to just relax in a hammock all... More

We had a great time at Roots, an ideal location to relax and stay in close contact with nature. The accommodations are simple but nice and clean. Nico and the staff are nice, the food is great, and the ambiance unique, very tranquil, overlooking the treetops...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Leave your everyday-world behind and join us in the magical jungle of Dominica. An untouched paradise where the air is clean, the water is fresh and the rainforest bursting with life. Right in the middle of it all you will find Roots Jungle Retreat. The perfect getaway for a natural, fun holiday, voted # 1 on Trip Advisor for the past year. Switch off your blackberry and experience the jungle sounds, the parrots and the fireflies, the refreshing water of the Bamboo river, and the beautiful organic food from our own jungle garden. We are 100% off the grid and eco-friendly. You will sleep in huts built by local Kalinago-Indians, with very comfortable bedding, as you need your rest after a day of fun. There are a million things you can do, but the great thing about Roots is that it’s also perfect for doing nothing at all. We are located next to the gorgeous Bamboo river and have our own swimming hole and little waterfall. You could just spend the whole day on the sundeck by the river reading a book. And we even have our own jungle style spa. We have built an Indian sweat hut for a nice detoxing experience. First you heat up until you start to sweat heavily, than you simply cool off in the river. Great for blood circulation and the immune system. But even more important: a great way to revive. More active visitors love to hike up the river. Further up on the mountain there is a bigger waterfall that is not reachable by road. You’ll have this magnificent place all to yourself! ... more   less
