This hotel offers superb views of the ocean with easy access to the main town of Rosseau. Quaint cobble stones take you throughout the hotel and the food is fine. Loved the mini spa to relax me from a hectic schedule.

I stayed here one night in off season. My room was great with a sea view. The restaurant/pub was cool. WiFi was good. Service at front desk and bar was allright. Tour desk was a bit pushy and expensive. I arranged better deals thru the Tourist Agency Downtown. The location is central enough (Roseau is small though). I thought of... More

The Fort Young Hotel is viewed by many as Dominica's premier hotel and triples up as a hotel, restaurant and entertainment venue and while I'm in Dominica I do frequent this place for the entertainment, especially so on a Monday night for the local jazz talent and Friday night happy hour; and both I find quite a good social outing...

The review says it all, really. I have waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for a starter in the restaurant. Both times, on last week's trip, room service took over an hour when the kitchen indicated 10-15 minutes. These are minor things though. The hotel is lovely, the views unparalleled, the people are so nice and I enjoy staying there.

I have been staying here for about 10 years 2 or 3 times a year on business trips. It is considered the best in Dominica, but please don't consider it 4 or 5 stars. On this trip I find that there are changes happening and not for the best. The front desk staff has a real, I don't really care... More

We stayed at this hotel for about eleven days this summer. Our experience was great. The hotel itself is beautiful, sits right on the shore, and the staff there is even better. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful in every way. I would definitely recommend this hotel for any type of trip you are taking.

Spent seven nights and loved every minute. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the best. Lunch and diner were good also as was the lounges. We spent most of the days scuba diving with the crew from Dive Dominica on several of the many great diving sites within a short boat ride. The hotel is right... More

Friendly and accommodating staff. Good ambiance. No doubt a waterfront room is the ideal place to come home to while visiting the world's best nature isle. Even if you stay elsewhere, be sure to pencil in dinner at the waterfront restaurant.

We had a nice stay at the Fort Young Hotel. The staff were generally friendly and responsive. Our room had a nice view that looked out over the ocean. The room and bathroom were both large.
