“Paradise”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Just spent the weekend at this amazing resort. It was a little paradise on a big paradise island. Everything was simply perfect. The staff was warm, friendly and very helpful. The owner gave us a personal tour of the place and the experience was great. Lots of flower and fauna. The receptionists were great, Cindy, Sherilyn, Leoma, Aziz and the maintenance supervisor were all helpful. I thought the staff were specially picked for the job. The food was great. The rooms were heavenly. Clean comfortable beddings and spacious rooms. We enjoyed every moment, the pool, the labyrinth maize and not forgetting the spa. Our only regret is having to leave.

Oscar looked after us very well. The team is very impressive as is the place. It was paradise being there. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. All the staff were amazing, especially Oscar, Kalisa, Joscelyn, Ivan, Aura and Aziz! Nothing was too much trouble and we were offered a complimentary upgrade on arrival as there was availability. Thank you again and I thoroughly recommend Rosalie Bay, its staff and the beautiful food including snapper, served by the top chef! Thanks again Oscar. I will miss your special smile and the counselling evening after dinner ;) "You cry first Oscar!". Loved the picture of Richard Branson. Kind regards, British Airways Jamie & his Father

Room Tip: Smile at Oscar and rub his shoulders twice ;)

My wife and I had the most amazing experience at Rosalie Bay. The accomodations were spacious and comfortable...like the best I've slept in years comfortable. It's location is truly awe inspiring and the construction of the resort is no less so. The hike to Victoria falls with Zahir followed by the traditional rastafarian stew was out of this world. Other excursions, such as swimming at the Emerald falls were exciting without ever once feeling unsafe or tourist trappish. The food was consistently delicious and the Acra Cod Fish Fritters are a must try (we brought home the recipe). We enjoyed wonderful massages at the spa and Yoga with Aura, a fabulous instructor. All of these things were important but what really made our visit to Rosalie Bay fantastic was the people who work there. The owners, Bev and Oscar, are truly remarkable people yet so pleasant and genuine. Oscar Lora the GM was ever present and attentive to our every need. Our guide Zahir is now our friend Zahir. He kept us so entertained with his vast knowledge of the island's people, places, and plants and his playful energy that we were dreading having to say goodbye to him. He even made us a CD of the music he played in the car all week because we said we liked it. Not all of the staff is as bombastic as Zahir but they had their own ways of making us feel welcome and fortunate. The bartender Aziz "Swagger" Roberts will charm you with his sly smile and tantalize you with expertly prepared cocktails. Melissa, Malaika, and Sharon provided impeccable service in the dining room. And finally the kitchen staff, particularly "Guada" who never serves a plate without the appropriate swag. Thanks Rosalie Bay! It goes without saying that we will be back.

Stayed for 5 nights at Rosalie Bay Resort, and wishing it had been 15 days! This is a truly unique resort that caters to all sorts of visitors. Whether you are looking for action-packed days or relaxing ones filled with yoga and pool- or beach-side lounging, Rosalie Bay is a fabulous choice. The rooms are stunning and still felt brand new despite being 1 year old. The oceanview suites are spectacular as they are huge and offer uninhibited views of the ocean and grounds from their wrap-around patios. Rooms are spread across the grounds in different, beautiful buildings. The staff are unparalleled in their friendliness.They genuinely do everything they can to ensure your stay is an amazing one. The food is delicious, and if you do not see something on the menu that appeals to you, the chef is very accommodating in making almost whatever you wish.

The beach here is absolutely stunning, and although you cannot swim in the ocean, the scenery on the strolls along the beach are unbelievable. Everything about this place is top notch and unique- I cannot recommend this resort highly enough!

We stayed at Rosalie Bay Resort for two nights while on a business trip. The room was amazing - actually it is exactly like the photo. Tastefully decorated, big comfortable bed, wonderfully soft bed linens, a very large bathroom and of course, the large claw-foot tub which fits two very easily, all creates a comfort level - I didn't want to leave. I highly recommend Rosalie Bay. I'll come again on vacation.

Room Tip: If you like to fish, ask for the riverside. The river is right there and you can fish from your porc...

Rosalie Bay Resort is one of the best places I have stayed in my life. This "wellness resort" is stunningly beautiful and has all of the bells and whistles you would expect from the "best of the best" in the world. It actually feels more like a club than a resort. I only had the pleasure of spending two nights and one full day here but what a day it was! After being lulled to sleep by the Caribbean wind and the sound of the surf of the Atlantic Ocean (which was steps away from our room), we woke up and had breakfast at the fantastic restaurant and went out for the day with our guide Zahir. He took us on an amazing trip to the beautiful Emerald Pool and Waterfall then through Roseau and up to Trafalgar Falls, after which we had lunch at an amazing restaurant and returned back to the hotel. Zahir was friendly and really funny - as well as very knowledgable about Dominica and had elaborate answers to all of the questions we asked him. When we got back to the resort, we decided to hang out at the pool for a couple hours then hit the resort's workout facilities. This packed day of fun was followed by seaside massages at the quaint little spa (which is literally on the beach). Topped off with a fantastic, healthy dinner at the restaurant then being lulled to sleep again by the sounds of the Ocean. We really could not have asked for a better day and are already planning our trip back here. Truly a hidden gem of an island and resort. Can't wait to get back.
