We spent 4 nights at Roots and we just wished we could have stayed longer… It’s simple Paradise! People were right when describing Roots as a place to reconnect with your inner self. Every day we spent was a perfect combination of adventurous hiking’s and time to relax and enjoy nature. We drove ourselves to the retreat and the scenery... More

The final bill for two nights was much more than expected. An additional 10% was added on everything and although the cabin accommodated 5 we were charged extra for 3 in our group. Not having the owner on site made it difficult to challenge the costs. The staff were pleasant but with no authority to make decisions on price. Our... More

We had a nice time but it was so much more expensive than everywhere else we stayed in dominica....it was really REALLY overpriced. We stayed in lovely, luxurious waterfront hotels, other rural b and bs and this was by far most expensive place we stayed. Think you could find similar for a lot less. Also, the dinner they provided was... More

We stayed at Roots Jungle Retreat 4 nights in the beginning of January. Our plan was to relax, and for that purpose it was the perfect place. It was completely offline, no internet, and only on and off cell coverage. We had the Arawan cabin, and spent a lot of time just relaxing in the big hammock on the porch,... More

Roots was definitely an interesting experience. If you plan on staying at Roots make sure you either have a 4-wheel drive vehicle or are taking a taxi service with 4-wheel drive. It is about 25-30 minutes drive from Marigot straight into the jungle on a rugged road. The location of Roots is wonderful, its beautiful rain forest with lots of... More

We are just back from Dominica where we spent 3 nights with Roots. I would rate myself as an adventure visitor and like many was lured by the idea of a remotely located Eco friendly lodge. However we (4 of us) could not have been more disappointed. It is located in the jungle so everyday we had to spend 30... More

It's been an interesting process, thinking about how to write this particular review. Roots is... some combination of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. This place is in the jungle. Really. In. The. Jungle. This is a wonderful and disquieting, all at the same time. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean, simple and,... More

We spent 4 days at roots and it was the highlight of our holidays. Lorena and Olaf were so friendly and helpful. They really made it feel like home in the jungle. Food and especially breakfast were great, the cocktails tasted amazing. It is a bit of a tricky drive up to the retreat, but therefor you are surrounded by... More

Roots Jungle Retreat is simply a paradise to reconnect with your inner self. It’s a place to be happy, to wake up smiling and go to bed with an even greater smile. It’s a place for nature lovers. A place you realize you don’t need much to be really happy. Getting to Dominica itself it’s an adventure. Flying there is... More

We stayed only one night in our jungle roots tree house, but Loreta and Olaf ensured that we were treated like old friends. You really need a 4x4 to travel the track which slowly brings you to Jungle Roots. The food was excellent and sourced from the local Carib tribe. Our cottage was entirely eco friendly and comfortable, with a... More
