no hot water, no staff, average restaurant, made me want to check out early. Maybe I had higher expectations ... Views were great of the Caribbean Sea but the cruise ships come in on Mondays and Tuesday...so the view gets obstructed ... Did i mention No hot water for showers was a problem and yeah, I would expect and island... More

This is the first hotel I've stayed in that I cannot fault. The hotel is built into an old colonial fort, and so has lots of character; there are old brass cannons at the entrance and dotted about the hotel that make the place feel really unique. The staff here are excellent - the bar staff are attentive, quick and... More

I was told by my landlady when I reached Dominica that Fort Young had an excellent Happy Hour service. Though me and my wife were not interested in sloshing ourselves we decided to visit their Restaurant. Unfortunately they were having in a renovation at their main dinner site, we were relocated to a very dull area within the hotel. Me... More

I write this with a degree of shame because I cannot remember the name of everyone I came into contact with, so for those of you whose name I failed to mention please forgive me. But I cannot speak more highly about the staff in every department I came into contact with, from house-keeping, to front-desk and the wait and... More

Staff and the front desk was very helpful and pleasant. Since the weather was not good to us this time (until... More

A few issues I had were, one day there was no hot water for several hours in my room. Also the spa was not working (I didn’t ask why and it would have been nice to use). Last you have to pay for all “In Room” local phone calls (this isn’t really the Hotel’s fault, apparently Dominica charges for all... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the deluxe oceanfront rooms. Having seen 9 rooms on 3 different resorts on the island these are the nicest and most convenient to town. The staff is well trained and polite. Talitha remembered us everyday and was especially warm and outgoing and pleasant. The rooms had power for both 220 and 110 volt devices... More

After 10 years of good experiences at this Hotel my latest stay was truly awful. If you are offered a Fort Room my personal advice is to find another Hotel. Furniture from the 70'S, broken shower with no wall attachments, AC unit so old and loud impossible to use at night although AC units rom widow were even louder and... More

This is an old fort & barracks converted to a lovely, rambling hotel, right on the water's edge. There's no beach, it's a taxi ride away. I didn't stay over, I just had a meal in one of the laid back restaurants. The staff are so friendly & it's a really delightful hotel. I would stay here.
