“enjoyed the Evergreen”
Reviewed March 4, 2008

We stayed in the "honeymoon hut" at the Evergreen in February 2008. We had a wonderful, close up view of the Caribbean from our patio & enjoyed hearing the surf. Our room had a great flat screen TV & refrigerator. The staff was wonderful - very friendly & helpful. The meals were very good & it was wonderful to eat overlooking the ocean. The only negative was that the bathroom lacked amenities - the sink was very small & there was very little room to put toiletries. We didn't think there was enough storage to unpack our clothes - just a closet to hang some things + a small drawer in each of our bedstands.

I was looking for a dive package in Dominica. I found 4 hotels in the Roseau area. Based on the reviews in Trip Advisor,I booked with Evergreen. During my 1 week stay, I visited the other 3 hotels. I found that the Fort Young hotel had the best property,rooms and amenities, but it was about a mile away from the dive shops and dock in the Castle Comfort area. I would stay there if I wanted to be pampered or catered to.
I found the Castle Comfort and Anchorage hotels which are next door to the Evergreen to have the atmosphere I was looking for. Both cater to divers with a shop on their premises and a dock for their boats right out front.
The Evergreen, however, had the nicest property and rooms. They also had the best restaurant. Right on the water, it had one of the best views of the bay. The only better view was from my room on the third floor. Three large windows on three walls gave me the best veiw of the bay - better than the view from Fort Young.
The food at the hotel was surprisingly good. Breakfast included American bacon and eggs or omelet with fresh local tropical fruits and juices. Dinner varied. Their fresh local catch was excellent with rice prepared local style. They were not shy in making their rum punch strong and flavorful.
I read other reviews critical of service on Dominica. Yes. Service is slow by American standards. Just leave your attitude and stress at home and chill down to island time. I found the staff and service slow, but they did provide service and were genuinely friendly. I found the staff to be quiet and reserved, but did respond with humor.
The only downside. The hotel lacked the diver atmosphere I was looking for.
The bottom line- if you want to hang out with divers, book at the Anchorage or Castle Comfort next door. If you want to stay at a slighty better property, with better rooms and better restaurant, book at the Evergreen.

Just returned from a dive trip to Dominica. Stayed at the Evergreen Hotel. We had an air conditioned oceanfront room, with 2 double beds, which was comfortable. Beautiful view from our deck. Breakfast was included in our package-fruit, juice,coffee(really good) and a choice of omelette, pancakes and french toast with a meat selection. This was good before diving.

The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant. They arranged a rental car for us. When my friend's dive bag did not arrive they stayed on top of it and eventually she received her bag from the airlines.
You can place items you need to secure in their office safe. There is wireless internet, which we used.

You can walk to several other restaurants from the hotel for some variety.

We dove with Nature Island Dive in Soufriere. Wonderful dive shop and dive masters. Small groups(6) with a dive master. Takes about 20 minutes by car to get there, but well worth it. Wafey and Oskar were fun and knowledgable. Valet diving at it's best. Champagne Reef and the night dive were awsome.

Our second trip to the Evergreen found us there at the same time as Scubatravelers. We had the owner, Jennny, book a custom 6-night package for an oceanview room and diving with Nature Island. The hotel will book with any dive operator, tour, or excursion company. Just tell them what you want to do. All was arranged for a fair price. As others have said, the property is well-maintained and they take wonderful care of guests. Our top-floor room was beautiful. The included breakfast is leisurely and filling, with many options of juices, fresh fruits, coffee, teas, meats, eggs, french toast or pancakes. There's an afternoon snack menu with sandwiches, burgers, etc. For dinner, there's both a prix fixe 4-course dinner and an a la carte menu. We chose to eat light at night and often drove over to the Fort Young -- a 10-minute trip -- to dine at their bar. The Evergreen has a nice bar/lounge that offers dominos, cards and other games for guests. Free, secure parking for rental cars. Great location in Castle Comfort next door to Castle Comfort Lodge/Dive Dominica.

  • Disliked — No elevator.

My Stay at The Evergreen Hotel was a pleasant one. The hotel is quaint, but clean and is set in a beautiful location.
A group of us stayed there almost filling the entire Hotel, as we were there for a wedding.
My Girlfriend and I were fortunate to get a sea view room, as we were one of the first to arrive, unfortunately some were given rooms on the roadside which they said were quite noisy. Also our room was very large with 2 balconys, where as the roadside rooms were alot smaller. This is because there are 2 seperate blocks, with the 'seaview' one being the newest build, so when you book, I recommend asking for a seaview room.

The Hotels only restaurant is sat virtually right on the coastline, and serves a very tasty breakfast and good quality meals, although be prepared for quite slow service. The pool area is clean and nice to sit and relax in, and the pool itself is also kept very clean.

You're a short bus ride into the town of Roseau which is good to have a look around, if you can catch it on market day you should get some good bargains.

The Hotel is also right next door to a Diving centre, where you can book Diving sessions, sea fishing, and a whale & dolphin safari. The latter is definitley worth it. We managed to see lots of whales when we were taken out.

Overall you can't really fault the hotel, my only advice would be to make sure your days are planned well so your not spending a great deal of time at the hotel, otherwise you may get a little bored. Its a great place to come back to in the evening however, and a great place to wake up in in the morning...

This was our second trip to Dominica, and although we wanted to dive with Nature Island Divers in Soufriere (possibly the best dive operation in the Carribean!), we wanted to stay nearer to Rosseau to be able to enjoy the local restaurants. The Evergreen is a family operated property, and it shows in everything they do. The "new" wing has six (?) ocean front rooms with balcony, AC, and views that can't be beat. The rooms are bright, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast every morning at the restaurant, right on the water. When we had to change rooms mid week (we booked very late, and were told up front that the oceanside room was only available for 4 nights), they took care of everything. The room in the original building had been recently renovated, and although it lacked an ocean view, it had a cathedral ceiling and was quiet and comfortable. From the time you arrive until the time you leave, you are treated as a valued guest, and greeted by a smile from everyone. My only reservation in recomending the Evergreen is that it will be full next time we want to visit!

We were sent to the Evergreen when our flight was cancelled, and the Garraway didn't have enough room. We arrived exasperated and left delighted! We had a very good dinner at the restaurant, 20 feet from the water, and there's a nice pool. Best of all was the staff's hospitality--dealing calmly with 15 unexpected and grumpy travelers, and setting out a simple breakfast for us at 5:30 a.m.

Our room was pretty basic, but I think the newer ones are nicer. It's a mile from the center of Roseau.
