Champs staycation deal was a steal! For one night (it can be longer but we're medical students) we only paid $50 US each for one of their superior rooms with an amazing view. It included a welcome drink, unlimited usage of their private jacuzzi, and breakfast the next morning. We were able to get away from school for a day... More

The visit to Dominica was great. I really want to come back and do more things. De Champs was an excellent choice. The amenities were to die for as well as the breakfast and food selections. When I return to Dominica,, I would love to stay there again! Awesome!
