My partner and I spent a magical 10 days at Roots Jungle Retreat end of December. We arrived at night at this ecolodge in the middle of the jungle, and while the sounds of the jungle bode well, the full extent of the pristine jungle came really to life when we woke up the first morning.
Breakfast on the common deck is great with fresh fruits and Guadalupe's great banana bread and other fresh baking. Guadalupe and Martin are very welcoming owners, and made us feel at home. Great dinners, and domino and other games at night.
Lots of hikes to be done on the property crossed by a river, from the treehouse trail to the natural pool. We ended up renting a 4WD for 5 days to discover the island's other beautiful spots, with good guidance from Martin and Guadalupe.
As a plus, we spent a great New Year's Eve, with a beautiful fish barbeque with all the visitors.
Definitely recommend!

We stayed in the Roots with my wife and 11 year son for a week. We really had a whale of time. The place in the jungle is magic, pure nature experience. The owners are just great people, moreover Guadalupe is excelent cook for local food. Eating in definitelly recomended. Roots is great place to discover Dominica from. Warning: you can feel the jungle, you can hear the jungle, you see just jungle - all around you :) Petr, Klara, Samuel

This real jungle lodge is situated on a wonderful place. It's not often to find such a clean and comfortable place on the island. We recommend to taste the delicious food and really enjoyed the personal atmosphere and warm welcome! The owners know a lot about the environment and the island, so we had many interesting discussions about, food, locals, fruits, plants, politics, journeys etc... Thank you for that! we would love to see this place and the lovely owners again. Perhaps in a few years!:-)

Room tip: Arawak has a beautiful view on the garden

Roots is a unique place in Dominica. Nested in the middle of the rainforest, it was the perfect retreat for us in the midst of tropical trees, birds and a beautiful garden. It's a 15 mn ride with 4WD car, from the main road, but this is not a surprise for Dominica ;-). The river that runs on the beautiful site provides a natural pool to refresh and relax. Our hosts Guadalupe and Martin were very profesional and great helpers in choosing our daily activities, not even talking about the food (we had breakfast and dinner there twice). Our cabin was clean, well attended, and we were happy to come back from our active adventures to find warm water to shower and a quiet and peaceful environment to sleep. We definitely recommand Roots for nature lovers, people seeking to experience the rainforest in a very cozy and confortable environment.
