My boyfriend and I stayed a couple of nights at Fort Young Hotel. We were immediately charmed by the kindness of the staff, from the waiter at the bar to the reception and restaurant. All staff took very good care of us, naturally checking on us when appropriate, chatting with us in a welcoming way. The room was very clean... More

My husband and I spent four days in Dominica in March, a welcome contrast to the brutal winter in our home city of Toronto. From the phone call I made in January to book our room, I had a very positive feeling about the hotel and this first impression was accurate. We had an ocean view room in the new... More

This place is class. From the beautiful sights and views of the ocean, especially at sunset, to the friendly people and good food and a great bar. This place is the place to stay. There is not much in Roseau, but don't let that fool you. The reason to go there is for the nature and the diving. Loved the... More

There are not many choices of hotels on the island but fort young was excellent. The staff was friendly. The activities desk lady, Sonya, just wasnt that great at helping me zero in on what I wanted to do on the island. She was a very nice lady but not a good salesperson or marketing. Everyone i encountered was friendly,... More

If I'm grading in comparison to other options in Roseau or Dominica, it's more of a 5. If it's in comparison to other Caribbean, North American, or boutique places in Dominica, it's more of a 3. It worked really well for me, as I was in Dominica for work and only had a short time for fun. Roseau is a... More

Stayed at the Fort Young for a conference I was helping to organise. The staff were amazing- very helpful and flexible. Helped us to pull everything together- often at the last minute. Location is great- fantastic waterfront views and the restaurant and terrace areas have the perfect backdrops for events.

We stayed in a lovely ocean front room with a little balcony. Great view and very comfortable. The entire property is beautiful and well-maintained. The pool is lovely and features a waterfall. My son loved it! You're situated right in town so it's very convenient. They also have an activities desk which offers interesting day excursions.

The oceanfront suite we had was very large and spacious which included a master bedroom suite with large bathroom area, shower and tub, as well as a separate living room area with sofa, chairs, kitchenette, and table. We loved waking up to the waves every morning. The hotel restaurants and staff were really friendly and the food was excellent. It... More

We stayed in one of the oceanfront suites, and it was huge! As big as some people's homes! And it had a very large balcony overlooking the water. Cruise ships come in a couple days a week and dock very close to the hotel, but we didn't hear them and they did not block our view. Staff was super friendly... More
