“Just lovely, good food, pool and people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

The food was excellent here. A really intimate restaurant without a hint of big hotels.
The cabanas were fantastic - clean and lovely. There is no iron or hair dryer.
The bed was so comfortable - it's huge and spacious.
The people are lovely, really helpful - will drive you to sites and it's privately owned so there are special touches everywhere and they really care.

My husband, adult son, and I spent 4 wonderful days at Pagua Bay House in Dominica. Everything was perfect: Alicia and Rick's warm welcome and attentive planning of excursions, the beautiful setting, delicious meals, and comfortable cabin. Dominica may be more difficult to reach than other islands, but it offers hiking, scuba, and the excellent accommodation of Pagua Bay House for someone like me who just wants to lay in a hammock, read, relax, and listen to the ocean.

Room Tip: There are only 5 rooms. All are excellent.

What a great experience! Not only is Pagua Bay gorgeous, Alicia and Rick are amazing! They go above and beyond what one would expect from boutique innkeepers making sure each and every detail of your trip is tended to. Our cabana was private and beautiful. In addition to the beautiful accommodations, it is by far the best food on the island! And the eager and friendly staff make you feel like you are part of the family. If you cant spend your entire stay, be sure to spend a couple of nights - a must!

Pagua Bay House is a fantastic blend between a hotel and a bed and breakfast. Rick and Alicia were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to ensure we had a great trip. They were both incredibly helpful in planning our trip from even before we booked a room, when they promptly responded to my emails.

The rooms were amazing; we stayed in Cabana #6, which has an amazing patio area with panoramic views of the ocean. The bathroom was just as big as the main room and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. The room does have an air conditioner, although it is not needed as a nice breeze came off the ocean with the cabana windows open.

Rick and Alicia met with us every morning during breakfast to ask about the previous day and to help us plan the upcoming day. They would contact guides for our hikes, suggest new trails to try or places to eat, and even drove us to go river tubing with complementary tubes.

Overall, I couldn't have been happier with our stay. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the accommodations were more than I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend staying at Pagua Bay (especially Cabana #5 or 6) for a relaxing, romantic vacation.

The rumors are true (see pretty much every other review below); Pagua Bay House is truly special. Alicia and Rick have created the perfect setting for those looking to get away from it all and enjoy this hidden gem of an island. Whether it's relaxing by the pool, horseback riding or going on a long hike, there's no shortage of things to love here. I highly recommend a tour of the island with Ryan (ryanstaxi@hotmail.com) to get a full appreciation of everything it has to offer. He's a proud local who couldn't be nicer.

Beautiful cabanas, amazing food and the finest service you can imagine. What more could you ask for? Whatever it is, Alicia and Rick will figure out a way to make it happen.

I stayed 2 days and enjoyed everything about it. The owners are there and are heipful in everyway. The rooms are clean, quiet, with a comfortable bed. What I liked best was the restaurant and bar. The food is very good with a variety as well.

I travel a lot for work and have stayed at many places. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The rooms are beautiful. The view of the ocean is beautiful. The property is amazing. The owners are great. The staff is great. The dog (Sarafina) is awesome. The food at their on site restaurant is awesome. I'm just sorry I only had one night to spend here. I can't wait to bring my wife back.
