I overnighted at this guest house my first night into Dominica just before tackling segment six of the Wytikubuli trail and was quite enthralled by the warm, cozy feel and hospitality which I met there. Granted, to put things into perspective, I went with an open mind, not exactly expecting concierge service or even hot water to say the least... More

We spent three nights at this establishment. We were on the first level, which has a wonderful deck overlooking their gardens, tropical forest and the ocean. It was unit 3 with a living room/ dining area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The galley kitchen was well equiped for us to do our own light... More

After reading about Domcans guesthouse on their website we were exited to go there. But we were disappointed when we finally arrived. We were expecting a nice welcoming after reading on tripadvisor about the owners, but it was not much effort put into it. It all felt a bit tired. The place was in the middle of nowhere so make...

Domcans is as good as ever. The rugged island of Dominica is near and dear to my heart. At $50 US per night, and centrally located this is the PERFECT hikers' perch. Grace and Harry make you feel like family, they are so warm and gracious, and Grace's cooking is fantastic. I wanted low fat, higher protein and she accommodated... More

Between Segments 5 and 6. Perfect accomodation at lower price than elsewhere, friendly, choice of restaurant or you also get a kitchen. The Waitukubuli Trail would become more popular if there was a G H like that each day (true, Vena's Paradise Hotel between Segments 4 and 5 is also excellent). At the top of Castle Bruce. Beware: Segment 6... More

We stayed in a first floor room to get the sea view. Balcony front and back meant you could get a breeze through but we still needed the fan. No kitchenette upstairs but a small fridge and Grace will lend you a kettle and utensils so you can do drinks, cold breakfast and fresh fruit and avocado which are dirt... More

Looking for a place to stay that was centrally located on the island, with a restaurant, and with decent reviews, led us to Domcan's Guesthouse. Further review of their website which included "brand new", "expansive living room", "a well appointed bathroom", " a large comfortable bedroom", and "guesthouse apartment" and fabulous pictures provided further confirmation that this would be the...

Lots of nice reviews of this place, but we found it to be so-so, and I'd say of the half-dozen places we stayed during our 3 week trip to Dominica, this was the most uninspired. The layout of the room was odd, with our bedroom being towards the parking lot (and road noise) rather than overlooking the wonderful sea. The... More

The best part of staying at Domcan's is the host and hostess. Harry and Grace were always there to answer our thousand and one questions. We stayed here for five weeks and enjoyed their hospitality and the great view from the deck. The apartment was clean and comfortable and Grace's meals were delicious.

The six-unit guesthouse in Castle Bruce is more like an apartment arrangement with cooking facilities available in some units and a good small restaurant with the cook being the co-owner Grace. The accommodations are fine and the view from the balconies is awesome. Hosts Grace and Harry are most gracious and helpful. The location is excellent for short side trips... More
