Estefan and Flor (managers) were excellent in every way. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. We were in one of the cottages (2nd level) and loved the porch (amazing view and great birdwatching). We enjoyed the long walk through the Forest Reserve and the waterfalls and pools. The 2 resident dogs were very friendly. The... More

If all that you need is a confortable "B&B" and you just want to reconnect with nature. This is the right place! I liked the diner too, Guadalupe, the manager, made excellent meal with simple ingredients, fresh juices every morning and wonderfull cake. And even though the portions are big enough , you still want more. If you want to... More

Beautiful mountain lodging with a wonderful staff. You feel like you are actually off the grid. Pure relaxation!. Martin and Guadaloupe were very informative about the island, willing and able to help set up adventures each day. Wonderful food!!!!

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
