“A real gem of a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We loved everything about Pagua Bay House! We stayed for three nights in February and it was the absolute highlight of our month in the Caribbean.
The setting is sublime, the cabanas, which sit very sensitively in the landscape; the pristine and gorgeous Pagua Bay, are uber-stylish and extremely comfortable. We loved sitting in the Adirondack chairs at night, watching the moon rise over the bay; going to sleep in our cabana lulled by the sound of the waves ; the great food in the restaurant and the fact that at night, it is lit only by lanterns; the Centipede punch knocked our socks off! and we were spoilt for choice with the delicious menu options. Above all, and key to Pagua Bay's success and appeal, is that Alicia and Rick are wonderful hosts and they and their staff radiate warmth and friendliness, enthusiasm and generosity of spirit. We will definitely go back.

N.B. Because of the sea breezes there are no mosquitos, a real plus for me, who gets bitten to pieces everywhere in the Caribbean, so you don't need to use the A/c. It's lovely and peaceful and feels so much healthier to sleep in fresh air .

Room Tip: We stayed in the new Ocean Front Cabana; very spacious terrace and great views.

Dominica is an unspoilt island offering a true taste of the Caribbean - so lovely unspoilt beaches and scenery but a "work in progress" road network and facilities. Pagua Bay is excellent value with very considerate and helpful owners and really quite excellent staff. You will however need a hire car because the hotel pool is tiny and you cannot swim from the nearby beach.The food at Pagua is perfectly acceptable but not "fine dining" - the "specials" board remained unchanged during our five night stay. Our room - Cabana 4 - was lovely. Rick and Alicia have ambitious plans for Pagua Bay and it will only improve.

My fiance picked this island as our next Caribbean island to visit and we both selected Pagua Bay Beach House as our first choice to stay in ... and were we well rewarded for our choices!
The island is very different from many other Caribbean islands in that it is very unspoiled and uncrowded by tourists. Because of these factors and the inherent natural beauty of this island, it has become known as the 'nature island.'
Pagua Bay Beach House was a dream spot for us for several reasons. First of all the hosts/owners are a delightful couple as well as extraordinarily helpful, charismatic and a great team. Second comes the location on the Atlantic coast where the surf and sea breeze are constant and interesting places to visit and hike are nearby while the bustle of the island capital is an hour drive away on the opposite side of the island. If you are interested in surf, hiking, nature and a place to sleep with soft sounds of nature and the ocean to lull you to sleep at night and culinary treats prepared by talented island chefs, Pagua Bay Beach House is #1.

Room Tip: Suite # 5 is exceptionally nice with a great view from the huge shower out the window to the ocean.

First of all, Dominica is pretty isolated. Not a lot of flights there from major airlines. But we were island hopping and that is a lot easier on small commuters between islands in the Caribbean. We chose this hotel because it was closest to the airport. There are NO major brands of hotels on this island. They are all Mom & Pop operations. This ones is perfectly ran and managed by the owners in great shape and a wonderful experience. Stayed in a cabana and it was very nice. Hotel is located right on the ocean with views abound. A very good restaurant too. This is a great place to unwind and stay a while. We certainly wished we could stay longer. I don't know about the rest of the hotels on the island. But I do know this one is a great choice in a perfect setting.

We visited Dominica in Feb 2014 for our honeymoon and stayed three nights at Pagua, but wished we could stay longer. Before reserving rooms here, we just happened to stop by the restuarant to use the wi-fi access. We were not even guests yet, but Rick and Alicia already could not do enough to help us. They are truly OUTSTANDING hosts.

Importantly, the location of Pagua is great. It is very conveniently accessed from the Melville Hall airport, and it's very easy to find. It's also just a short drive to many of the beaches on the north coast of the island.

The cabanas are absolutely superb. They are aesthetically beautiful, with very comfy beds, beautiful showers, and all the amentities you could possibly need.

The restaurant is fantastic: great view of the ocean and pool, delicious food, really great espresso/coffee, and a nice cocktail menu. Of course, the restaurant service is outstanding.

Rick, Alicia, and all of the Pagua staff are just really amazing. We can't say enough great things about everyone there. They are all so warm, welcoming, helpful, and generally hospitable.

We would highly recommend Pagua to anyone planning to visit the beautiful island of Dominica! We can't wait to go back!!

Thanks for making our trip to Dominica so special, Pagua!

Room Tip: If you're able to splurge, stay in the Garden Suite - it's so, so, so beautiful and complete...

We stayed there three days in January 2014. Pagua Bay House is a beautiful and tranquil place located at the atlantic ocean. Alicia and Rick our hosts were available when we needed any advice, they also arranged trips for us and helped us with everything (booking of ferry tickets- what seemed to be very difficult, rental of car...).,
The food in the restaurant was delightful and the view and the seabreeze were amazing. We had a great time staying over at Pagua Bay House, we were greeted with friendly staffs, the moment we arrived.there the place was well maintained and our cabana had a comfortably and nicely design.Overall the service from the owners, staffs and cleaners was excellent!

great rooms and location. we had so much planned and Alicia and Rick made is so easy for us. They had a rental car delivered right to the hotel with short notice, and mapped everything out for us, which was great as a lot of the roads and sites are not marked. great food as well. this is a full service hotel and they are better than travel agents. thanks again Rick and Alicia we will return again

Room Tip: #3but they all looked great
