“Perfection!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I can't say enough good things about Pagua Bay House, owners Rick and Alicia, and their incredible staff -- Jenny, Laureen, Jessie, Mikey, Bryan, et al! From the second I stepped out of the taxi -- and ordered my first Centipede rum punch! :-) -- to the last moment I left, with Rick and Alicia personally escorting me to my car, it couldn't have been better. The setting is stunning -- right on the bay, with the sound of waves 24/7 (your own personal white noise machine!), immaculately maintained, and even sweet Sarafina (the dog), sleeping or sitting quietly while waiting for a pat on the head. My cabana (#3) was wonderful -- all the comforts of home (and more), nice amenities, fully stocked mini-bar, guest robes, cable TV (even though who would want to waste time watching TV here???). And the food . . . in a word, YUM! Be sure to try the local crayfish and ginger glazed mahi, and if you're lucky, they'll have the fresh lobster ravioli special. The best part of Pagua Bay is the personal touch Rick, Alicia and their whole staff have perfected. Examples: 1) I mentioned I liked papaya, and they made sure they had it for my fruit plate every morning. 2) I arrived sick and had to spend two days in bed. They made a trip to town to get medicine for me at the pharmacy, and everyone checked on me several times a day, brought me soup, and set up a tea kettle for me. 3) Rick and Alicia spend big amounts of time with every new guest to get them oriented, give them itinerary ideas according to their preferences, call and line up guides, call to make bookings, etc. People all over the island know Rick and Alicia, so you just drop their name, and you get great service! It's a testimonial to their good standing in the community that people know them, respect them, and smile when you mention their name. Don't book anywhere else, and if you have to stay somewhere else, do yourself a favor and swing by the property for lunch. I look forward to a return to Pagua Bay house and the lovely island of Dominica.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, so you can't make a bad choice!!!

We were glad that we booked to stay here. The view was amazing to say the least. While we were there, the waves were huge and the wind blew like crazy (not the norm for this time of year) which made for some pretty pictures. There is no ocean swimming here due to strong undertows, and there is signage up to say so. However, there is a pool which is more than adequate. The bungalows can be deceiving at first glance but once you are inside, you realize that one should never judge too quickly. The bed linens are of high quality, the bed is very comfy with feather mattress topper. The rooms are huge with a lot of thought put into functionality. Very much like a mix of a North American and Caribbean room, with the best of both.
The food, where do I start??? Yummy. Also a mix of North American/Caribbean. And a pretty extensive alcohol choice. They will tailor things to your likes too. Fresh lobsters just waiting to be picked, desserts.... Had the cheesecake as an appetizer one day. ha.
A great place for unwinding. They have selected drivers to take you on excursions, however if you want to do quite a few, realize that many are on the west side, over an hour away, each way. We were given a ride to Carib Village and hiked a trail back which was a good way to explore the immediate area. Hint: wear appropriate footwear...
Rick and Alicia have great,outgoing staff there right now that contribute to a pleasant stay. 24 hour security gave us peace of mind. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean. 5 and 6 are deluxe. 7-9 are in the planning stages...

My spouse are frequent travellers and this is the first review that we have ever done on any travel website. We just returned from 5 nights at Pagua Bay House and we simply had to share our experience which, from beginning to end, was flawless. Alicia and Rick are gracious hosts, supported by a team of professional and good-natured staff. Rooms are simply but elegantly decorated, and kept to the highest standards of cleanliness. Beds are comfortable (perhaps too comfortable!) with quality linens. Each cabana overlooks Pagua Bay on the Atlantic; the views are stunning and if you enyoy falling asleep listening to the ocean waves, you cannot find a better place. There is an excellent restaurant on site with a good selection of Caribbean and North Amercian cuisine. The cocunut shrimp curry and the lamb curry are not to be missed. The thing though that distinguishes this fine hotel with others is that it is a boutique operated by innkeepers who clearly love what they do and the island on which they live - it shows in the pride of their place. Alicia and Rick, we will return!

Stayed at Pagua Bay for our last night in Dominica after 16 months of medical school and it was the perfect way to end our stay. Location was beautiful, place was clean and very modern especially for the island. The staff was amazing and Rick and Alicia were very accommodating, even going to buy things they didn't have to make drinks we had requested. Can't beat service like that. Perfect place for our last day

Paguay House is fantastic, a true paradise for islands.
The reception given by Rick and Alicia is just great, they were very good advice for activities and explore the island.
The "huts" built in a contemporary style, with a very successful integration into the site are of a high standard, very neat with a refined decoration.
The team accompanying Alicia and Rick at the hotel or the restaurant was lovely and super efficient.
We had a fabulous stay at Paguay House and would highly recommend this place to dream.

Room Tip: Hut with private pool is just divine !!

My boyfriend and I just got back from the most amazing 5 days at Pagua Bay House .
From the moment we arrived it was truly heaven on earth. The owners Rick and Alicia could not have been more hospitable and helpful in telling us all about the island and arranging tours for us which is a must to appreciate the feel of this warm and friendly island . Every need was seen to by the awesome staff. Smiling is contagious at Pagua Bay House. The accommodations were awesome and the views spectacular. The food was great and if you are lucky enough to have Ricks "Lobster Cheviche" than your trip would be complete.
We have declared this our favorite place to be and are planning our return trip next year

We spent three nights at Pagua Bay House. The setting is stunning, the accommodation and food were excellent but it was the staff that made the weekend for us. The staff, owners included were so helpful and gave the resort such an intimate feel.
We would highly recommend hiring a car (which the staff organised for us) as many of the big attractions are on the other side of the Island but we would strongly recommend a night or two in Pagua Bay house to soak up the view and relaxing hospitality before flying home.
