The pros: Nice view, a hammock on the porch, very nice, friendly, helpful staff. Can walk to town or even Indian River or Cabrits NP (a bit far but not bad) or to beaches from here. The restaurant was nice, the food good. I liked the grilled lion fish. There are several other restaurants very close, just down the hill....

Food portions were great! They were huge! and the service was great!. Our fight was delayed and the staff stayed late to wait for us so that we could still have dinner when we arrived. You get that service nowhere else!

Very beautiful location, on top of a mountain having an overview over the gorgeous Dominican nature (much green and mountains), with the ocean in the background. This can be seen with a delicious breakfast. The hotelroom is lux. I had the best sleep in ages there! To top it off, the workers were really nice and fun!

Stayed here one night on short trip to Dominica. Comfortable room high on the hillside. Decent restaurant with free breakfast. The pancakes were great! The staff were very helpful and there is parking outside the hotel. Would stay again.
