“Great Place, great price, great trip”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We stayed at Symes Zee in Byack which is about 20 min by car from Roseau.
The place is beautifully located on the top of a hill with a fantastic view over the mountains and the ocean. The Hotel is a great start Point for some of the top sites in Dominica like Ti-tou Gorge and the Boiling Lake.
The owner was very nice and shared some insight knowledge of Domica.

We can really recommend staying at Symes Zee.

I have been traveling to Dominica for 12 years and have always been extremely happy with my stays at Symes Zee's guest house. Symes Zee and his staff are ALWAYS helpful and accommodating. This is a real immersed cultural experience. You are in the heart of Roseau with access to all it has to offer and is near all the bus stops. The food is real creole dishes at very affordable prices. Syme Zee is very proud of his villa up in the mountains, as he should be. He is forever upgrading it.It is a beautiful mountain retreat and he more than willing to shuttle guests up to see it and then drop you off at a trail head if you so desire. I highly recommend both locations for the traveler who wants a real Dominican holiday.

This hotel is situated on top of a mountain in Laudat,giving you a 360 view of all the rainforest around you. If you are looking for a place to use as a base for daily driving or hiking trips,this is the place to be. The hotel is clean and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Each room is en-suiteand there is many terraces you can sit and enjoy your surroundings in privacy.
There is an amazing vegetable garden on the premises providing daily vegetables and fruit to the guests.
If you are looking for a true authentic experience in Dominica then this is the place to be. And for those times you want to reconnect with the outside world the hotel provides WiFi throughout the grounds.

Room Tip: A true nature experience

We stayed at this hotel located upon a mountain, with cool breezes and wonderful sceeenery. The proprieter Sym-Z was a fantastic host and nothing was a problem when it came to our requests. I lost all inibitions and had many 1st experiences upon that montain.
I highly reccommend this hotel for it's comfort, cleanliness and customer services. The island itself was hot and town was hustle and busle, but at the hotel we experienced sheer indulgence.

I enjoyed every bit of my stay at Symes Zee villa. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place to be. There were Majestic views from every vantage point that included the Roseau valley, Caribbean Sea, dormant volcanic mountains, and waterfalls. It is something indescribable. The hotel is perched on the slops of a Mountain. I felt like I was the only one on the island at times because the hotel is isolated from everything, but yet very close to downtown Roseau and Laudat. My room was clean and the staff was pleasant. The owner is a nice man who bought my friend and I free rounds of drinks at his downtown establishment. The only bad thing I can say about this place is that the stay there was too short.
