We decided to stop by for lunch. The food was great and the team incredibly welcoming. If you are there when they have fruit cake, you must try it! The area is beautiful and the team were happy to answer our questions about the different native plants. The sulphur pools are just round the corner so would recommend making a day out from both! There was a bit of road works on the way which was a bit frustrating but the locals quickly pointed us in the right direction.

We totally enjoyed this tour! Bevin and Sharon were excellent tour guides. Very personable and knowledgeable. In addition to the three major attractions, they showed us many more points of interest. While Mero Beach is not one of our favorite Caribbean beaches, the waterfall was the most beautiful we experienced throughout the Caribbean. After the long day of touring, the mineral bath was so relaxing. We had a great time and would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Dominica for the first time.

I highly can't recommend this place. The host seemed friendly in the beginning, but then just went too far, without even noticing it himself, wanting things no one should ask a young solo traveling woman for. Additionally that place has not recovered from the hurricanes yet and most things are in poor conditions and the "Wellness" is totally missing.

This place is surrounded by a beautiful view. The actual grounds are equally beautiful, you can tell so much work has been put into them. The cooks did a great job on the food, and Bevin does a great job on the rum punch. We were in heaven here. You meet a lot of interesting people. Perfect spot for those who are going to do the Waitukubuli. We mostly stayed in the tents, which were well ventilated, had comfy mattresses, and everything was very clean. The most luxurious tent camping I think I have ever done. Even when it poured all night, nothing leaked. When my personal hammock I brought with me broke, I hopped into a tent in the middle of the night, and Bevin didn't have a problem with this, thankfully. The rest of my family quickly ditched their hammocks too, in favour of these lovely tents. I was travelling with my family, and I'm sure were quite the pain, considering how unprepared we were, but Bevin was super patient and welcoming anyway. Really great guy. The location was also spot on. There were plenty of things to do in the area, awesome hikes, snorkeling, sulphur springs, ect. For activities further away, you could head to the bus stop just down the road, and the bus to the main city is a short trip. So you could use this as your base for a lot of different activities. My brother and I are already planning our return trip to Dominica, and this time we are setting aside more days to specifically hang out here. It's awesome to find a place where you so quickly find yourself so comfortable. Easy place to fall in love with. Thanks Bevin and everyone else (like Julie!) there for making so many nights of our trip so great.
