Why would I hesitate to review is simple. I don't want anything to change ever at the "Champs", I want it all to my self. Selfish I know, but I have been a guest at the "Champs" twice now. Every aspect of the experience is beyond definition. I have been to most all of the Caribbean Islands and find the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Champs for four nights out of our 10 days in Dominica and had an amazing time! The hotel was clean, and has an awesome bar with great food! It is a hike up to get up the hill to the hotel if you're walking but is worth the breathtaking panoramic views. Lise and... More

The Champs seemed to trump all - in the hotel, restaurant and evening life - during our stay in Dominica. The genuine personal care of the proprietor, Lise, has not only made us loyal patrons but also friends; in which we look forward to seeing on our next trip to the Nature Island of Dominica.

Staying at this hotel was an unexpected treat. My partner and I stayed here for two weeks, hiking and diving on this incredible island. The hotel's location is perfect for getting around, and views from all rooms are spectacular, especially at sunset. The vibe is fun and friendly.
