I have mixed feelings about Papillote. On one hand, the gardens are beautiful, Marcel (the head gardener) is very friendly and knowledgeable, and the mineral pools are heaven to soak in. However when we checked in (we stayed for 2 nights), there were about 100 cruise ship travelers bombarding the place for lunch and the afternoon tour. After they were all gone it was a lovely peaceful place. While they were there it was everything we chose Dominica to avoid. If you stay at Papillote and can be gone during the day and do your exploring after hours, I think that is the best way to enjoy it's beauty and charm.
