Got off the ferry late at night and walked a few hundred metres to this excellent hotel. Minutes later we were dining in the old school classy restaurant, where I enjoyed one of the best vegetarian meals I've ever had and the kind of service one would expect at a much more expensive hotel. The room was decent with a... More

Centrally located to good restaurants and the clients I was visiting. Everything in Roseau seems to be walking distance and from the hotel a brisk walk takes you to the craft market, botanical garden and some some excellent foods. Expect to walk up stairs and down stairs, because Dominica itself is a hilly country and Fort Young is literally built... More

Unimpressive. VERY slow food services. Fort Young rooms are terrible - out dated and dingy. Too many stairs on the property. Garbage was laying around the pool often. I would not recommend this hotel to others.

We spent 2 nights at the Fort Young Hotel in Roseau in May 2016. On arrival we were immediately greeted by the reception staff and taken care of. They were wondering why we didn't have any luggage with us, but that's because Express des Iles had somehow "lost" our bags on the way from Martinique (in fact they hadn't tagged... More

Gave 5 stars for totally amazing staff: Sheba (reception), Meleva (manager of housekeeping), Sherwin (kitchen), the bartenders!! Staff went out of their way to please guests, all with a friendly disposition. There is a BEAUTIFUL ocean view from hotel. The hotel itself is also so lovely. My room was a basic room, but lovely with its wooden floors and ceiling.... More

Stayed here for a week with a dive group. The balcony for our room was literally over the ocean. Nice sized room, large bathroom, and gorgeous views. The staff was amazing and handled our large group with precision. They even sent the sweetest note on my birthday. Enjoyable stay.

Our first visit to Roseau, Dominica and the stay at the hotel was amazing, we were diving, my wife, and middle daughter, and we had an amazing stay. The food at the hotel was very good and the staff quickly took care of the few items that we had need of. The only problem I had was that it was... More
