Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Wander through the Papillote Tropical Gardens. Flowering jade vines of an unbelievable shade of blue, huge pink or red ginger blossoms, aroids, begonias, bromeliads,ferns, indigenous orchids and heliconias form sumptuous compositions to tempt artists, botanists, gardeners and photographers. Frogs and other creatures live contentedly with 30 kinds of bird and 19 species of butterfly amongst hot and cold waterfalls and soothing hot mineral pools.

Well worth the trouble to find as the gardens here are truly exceptional. I found many hummingbirds here, with exotic lizards, beautiful flowering plants and hot mineral springs.

“Relax after scuba diving”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We spent half a day climbing to the falls, swimming, in the stream, and experiencing the hot water in the trail side pond. After that we enjoyed a long relaxing time in the very hot, medium hot and cold pools. This was lots of fun and worth the drive.
After the climb and pools we enjoyed a very nice lunch at the Rainforest Restaurant.

“Amazing premises”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

It takes a few minutes to get acquainted with all the paths but you can tell a lot of effort went into putting this hotel together. The hotel is stunning, the rooms, while old are completely functional and great as well.

There are baths all over the premises though if you're using one at night, keep a flashlight handy. Lots of lizard wildlife across the premises (I get uncomfortable but they're completely harmless).

The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the fact that the water running in your room all comes from the sulphur pools. It was cool at first but at some point, i really desired everything be freshwater.

“A positively 'once in a lifetime' experience!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I asked a local where to have lunch and Papillote was recommended with a suggestion I take a bathing suit. Took the local bus from Roseau and 10 minutes later I was in paradise. This is more than just lunch - beautiful gardens, hot mineral pools & waterfalls, great food (try the Sweet & Spicy Shrimp and their Fish lunch cooked in banana leaf). I planned on just lunch but ended up spending the afternoon in the afore mentioned bathing suit basking in the wonderful hot pools and relaxing to the sounds, sights and scents of nature. (A small fee is charged for day use of the gardens & pools) The staff was charming and the garden tour is a private botanical lesson in itself. This island has many unique & beautiful places but this was one of the best days I spent in Dominica!

this is a place to come and relax in a verdant wonderland, soaking in hot spring fed pools. Bring a good book.
