This isn't Cancun. If you are looking for a party on the beach every night, this isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a vacation on an island that feels untouched by tourism and massive hotels, you'll want to check out Dominica. The Rosalie Bay resort is not the easiest to get to, but it is worth every turn on the windy road. Rooms are lovely and clean. The restaurant is open to the sound of the beautiful black beach and you won't find food this good anywhere else on the island, except maybe at the little french outdoor cafe about 20 minutes away. We had a great afternoon lunch during a rainstorm and I commented how I felt like Robinson Crusoe, not another building in site. They have spa at the resort. I had a great 4 handed massage beach side, my first time for that. The ladies in the group treated themselves to facials. I don't know what a facial intails, but there were no complaints. Hotel staff was great, cheery and helpful. We especially had fun talking with the pool staff while drinking Cuba Libres. I've stayed at a lot of resort hotels and they are mostly all the same. Same hotel, different beach, but this was a totally different experience. If you like your island vacations rowdy and busy, don't go. But if you love nature, rivers, hikes, diving, or just want to truly relax, this is it. And I guarantee you'll go home with a heartache because you had to leave it. I know I did.
