The Hotel was as advertised. Sits on a steep hill overlooking the Caribbean with a beautiful 180 degree view. It is a long drive through the jungle, along the ocean & over the mountains from the Airport, we recommend having Lise set up the Taxi for you, they bill it to your room. Our room had a great balcony view... More

Remarkable view, cozy, great food, great bar. Fantastic host. Shuttle will take you and pick you up wherever you need to go. Centrally located makes it ideal for family visiting Ross University students. Beach just minutes away with bar and restaurants(for persons with Ross guest passes). Wi Fi with good speed.

You are given an 'Island Phone' at check-in with pre-programmed number's for the owners, manager-on-duty, and their 'drivers'. They have vehicles/driver's available to take you (or pick you up) from... More

We stayed at Champs for 3 nights. Clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was included and was excellent. There is a restaurant on site and the food and service was good. Being located at the top of a hill, there was a fantastic view of Portsmouth and the ocean at all times. i would reccomend it.

The view of Dominica from high up on the hill at The Champs was gorgeous - upon arrival I immediately took a nap in one of the hammocks provided on the patio while staring out over the lush landscape towards the ocean. So relaxing! The room was clean and comfortable, although we wished there had been 120V electric outlets installed... More

The island of Dominica remains an undervisited gem in the Caribbean and if you go there it is worth staying in Portsmouth in the north as well as Roseau in the south. The Champs is a good base near Portsmouth from which to tour the north of Dominica. It is a small, friendly guest house like hotel, situated up a... More
