The garden is just handsome, lot of colors, flowers, fruits... it's just a paradise the roots team were so cool, they are really nice, friendly with us. they helped us to find good... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in April. The place is easy enough to find but involves a very rocky drive down a track. But this can be easily done in a 4x4. Upon arrival we were met by the managers who showed us to our lodge - Arawak. We immediately noticed how peaceful and tranquil it was - just... More

We were really looking forward to our stay in Roots Jungle Retreat after visiting the website with nicepcitures and stories of a chef trained in Uruguay and Argentina and his clay oven. The pictures at the site don't resemble the reality unfortunately.. The way to the resort is bumpy, but nice if you have a 4x4: you really feel like... More

Our stay at Jungle Roots was amazing- peace, quiet, great hosts and tropical forest around. Comfortable, good food and friendly cat and dog :) Recommend everyone who loves forests, this place is in the heart of wild Dominica and it's 'hard-to-forget' experience. And no mosquitoes;) We loved it! Agnieszka

We had a lovely time at Roots Jungle Retreat! The meals were excellent, the staff were the best, and the setting couldn't be beat! It was so peaceful--a true retreat. We felt safe and comfortable. That being said, the road up to Roots is for the hardiest of drivers, but we did get used to it by the end of... More

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
