Fantastic place. I read somewhere (maybe their tagline?) "adventure by day, luxury by night." That's it exactly, although I'd add "barefoot" before luxury because you can pad around barefoot, restaurant/bar are open-air. Food was great, staff very kind...and I sure dug the surprise room upgrades!

I now factor a meal at Pagua Bay into my travel itinerary - both departure and arrival to Dominica. If my flight is scheduled to depart Dominica at 7:15pm, I factor in an additional 20 minutes to my 50-minute drive to the airport in order to allow me to pick-up or dine in at Pagua Bay. The quality of the... More

Had been looking forward to visiting for a long time, based on the reviews. It was a huge let down. The staff was rude, the owner unprofessional and dishonest and the service was among the worst I've experienced in the world. Won't make that mistake again

We stayed at Pagua Bay for one week and enjoyed it all (except when our cat-sitter back home got locked out of our house.) I mention that because the Pagua owners went out of their way to help us get the situation resolved. Dominica is not an easy place -- the beaches are rocky, the roads not so good and... More

I lived in Dominica for 2 years and visited Pagua Bay at their restaurant and stayed by the pool many times, but I never got around to staying there. My last day on island before flying out, I decided to stay overnight at Pagua. It was exactly as I would have hoped - the rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and... More

What a discovery. After six nights on Dominica's Caribbean Sea coast, we were keen to experience the wilder Atlantic side before flying home - so headed to Pagua Bay for an all-too-brief single night. We treated ourselves to the Garden Suite, a stunning bedroom and bathroom combo with a large outdoor terrace, private swimming pool and superb views over the... More

I was pretty sure I was making the right choice when I read the many excellent reviews of Pagua Bay House here on TripAdvisor. That feeling was bolstered by the welcome email I received from Alicia right after I made the booking offering to help with any tours or activities we might be interested and even offering to bake a...

We returned to Pagua Bay this April, about a year after our first stay. It is such a special experience. Alicia and Rick make it feel like you are being hosted by close friends. We stayed in Cabanas 1 and 2 this time (5 and 6 the time before). The view and sounds of the ocean and gardens were so... More

I'm one of those travelers who likes to explore new places, hotels etc. Pagua Bay House is the only destination I've ever returned to and I'm so glad I did. Rick and Alicia have every detail down to a relaxing science. The cabanas all have breathtaking views of the ocean – the sounds of the waves crashing will put you... More
