Great history (old fort), nice people (except those at front desk, who didn't seem eager to help), food at restaurant was quite good. BUT, rooms that look great in the photos are actually worn, dingy, not all that clean and not well serviced. Sinks were rusted, cabinets dinged/dented, windows in the bedroom didn't open, but did leak water all over... More

I have stayed in this hotel before, which was a pleasant enough stay. There is room service and when I was required to wait in reception by my significant other, I was given a complimentary fresh juice, which was very welcoming. The view from the oceanfront rooms are spectacular and will refresh you. Very clean room and free wifi. This... More

I contacted the hotel prior to booking it for a one night stay with my husband to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Let me tell you, it was a fantastic idea. Anique and Kelcia went out of their way and beyond to make sure this was a very memorable night. With their recommendation, they set up our dinner table out... More

Ate burgers here one night, with a few friends. The vaitors was awefully slow to get us menus, then gave us almost an hour to study them before takeing our order, then 90 min to get us the food, which at that point was cold. The lovation was very good, but not worth it! Avoid!

Hi We apologize that your experience at our restaurant seven months ago that is January 2014 did not meet your expectations. At that time we were experiencing some issues with the restaurant since we had recently restructured and going through major changes. However presently the restaurant is totally revamped under new management. We would love to have you again to... More

Our group was in Dominica on a church mission trip to construct houses. We stayed in the fort young hotel and had breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The room [518] was better than what I expected, but the ceiling fan was out of balance and made a loud knocking noise. I especially enjoyed breakfast of the deck, the food... More

I stayed here with a SCUBA group for a week. We had room 101 and loved it. It was right next to the scuba shop and great for getting on the boat in the morning. We were able to wash our gear and literally throw it up on our balcony to dry. Perfect for the diver. Also a big shout... More

We were there primarily for diving but also explored the island and used the tour agency, khatts tours, in the hotel for a lot of them. We had a deluxe ocean front room #204. It was comfortable, cool, king size bed, close to the restaurant, and pier for catching the dive boat. The shower / tub worked fine there was... More

If you are In Roseau for only one day and have wandered along the back streets, visited the local shops and bars and are tired, dusty and hot then the veranda of Fort Young Hotel is the place for you. Here you can sit in the shade, enjoy the light sea breeze and take some light refreshment of your choice.... More

By western standards this would be a "good to pretty good" hotel, but by Dominican standards, it's quite nice. Rooms are large and comfortable and staff is very accommodating. The Fort Young Dive Shop at the hotel can take care of your diving and snorkeling excursions (boats of all sizes for all types of groups). The dive masters are very... More
