We had such a memorable time at Paugua Bay. The location is amazing and the food was perfectly fresh and delicious. After riding the waves, we had a picnic on the beach drinking rum punch and eating crunchy yummy beach tacos. Ended the night with ribeye steak, mahi-mahi, and more alcohol. Thank you Erick and Alicia! We know you have wonderful plans for expanding Pagua Bay. We can't wait to stay in your new suite and to have breakfast!

As a temporary resident of Dominica, I traveled around the island in hopes of finding a wonderful place to vacation if I ever returned. I booked at Pagua for one night , and it exceeded my expectations of the hotel, restaurant, and the island itself. From the moment my fiance and I arrived at Pagua, the owners Rick and Alicia were so helpful and ready to accommodate. The location is great. About 5 mins from the airport, The villas are located in a jungle like environment, but close to the roads and beach. The restaurant is located about a mile from the villas. There is a beach right in front of the villas that is undisturbed. The rooms are fantastic with amazing design, comfortable beds, and beautiful bathroom. It was so clean and well organized. The restaurant is great as well too ! The food is probably the best on Dominica. The chicken tacos are amazing and the centipede rum punch is a drink worth trying. Overall, I was surprised and amazed with Pagua. I would recommend Pagua to anyone wanting to enjoy a quiet , romantic getaway.

We stayed in Pagua Bay with Rick and Alicia (the Propriators of the hotel) for the last 3 days of our trip to Dominica. After 3 days based in Roseau hiking, snorkelling, driving around crazy roads we were fit to sit back and relax for 3 days. Pagua bay did not disappoint. This place is fab and has managed to capture the essence of Dominica (wild but beautiful). The Cabannas have a mesmerising view, we spent hours sitting on the verandah just enjoying the surrounding. The fit out ot the Cabannas is top class, luxury beds and top quality sheets,hard wood floors, bathroom and mini bar. The staff are wonderful and it is obvious that providing a quality customer service is a priority. Rick and Alicia also run the restaurant a short hop up the road from the Cabannas, transport to and fro is provided by the hotel and the food and cocktails in the restaurant is top notch. The restaurant overlooks the bay and offers another stunning view. Rick is knowledgable guide of th island and brought us to a stunning nearby beach we would not have found by ourselves.

We had a wonderful experience in this hotel and should we return to Dominica we would not hesitate to book in again.

Pagua Bay House has managed to incorporate the amenities of upscale hotels without undermining the natural beauty and authenticity of Dominica. Hot showers, deluxe linens and skin products, mini bar, air conditioning all with a breathtaking view from the porch of your metal roofed cabana. Alicia and Rick were engaging hosts who have clearly put a lot of thought and energy into this venture.

We stayed 10 glorious days in Dominica using Pagua Bay as our home base. The totally engaging owners fed us great meals and arranged tours for hiking to waterfalls, birding, swimming, and dining with special attention to our interests. The cabana was beautifully designed and perfect for rest and reading. The rain on the roof was a bonus. The gardens were amazing. We just want to figure out how to get back there as soon as possible.

I lived in Dominica for the past 18 months, so I spent much of my time there enjoying the nature and serenity the island itself has to offer. However, whenever I wanted a delicious meal or a night away, Pagua Bay was always my favorite spot. I can't wait to come back.

The owners are a kind, down-to-earth people couple who clearly want their guests to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and local flare as much as they do. They make the booking process easy and can pretty much accommodate any request. Specifically, I have taken advantage of their car service to and from the airport, as well as bus transportation they arrange to the restaurant for large groups to come for dinner.

The best part of Pagua Bay is the location. As you drive up to the property over the rolling hills, through the lush rain forest, you just know you're in for the time of your life. Pagua Bay itself is on the eastern coast of the island, where the Atlantic brings in waves (sometimes surfable!) and cool ocean air. On a Caribbean island that can get pretty hot and humid in the summer, the Atlantic coast is definitely the place to be. The beachfront rooms are set up on a little hill, so you have a view down to the water. They have huge windows that let in the light and air, but can be shuttered down if you want to snuggle up and enjoy a movie on the flatscreen TVs and a little wine, nip or local juice from the in-room mini bar. The guesthouse has a variety of beach toys, like tubes, boogey boards, etc., that they allow guests to enjoy at the beach. There is also a picturesque river just a short walk down the beach.

The rooms themselves are a little different from each other, but each is modern, clean and classy. The king-sized bed is literally the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. I even noted down the brand of mattress in hopes that someday I can duplicate the setup in my own home! The bathrooms are immense and the showers are big enough for about five people. The toiletries, linens, towels and robes are high quality. Dominica is a rustic island, and that sometimes makes it difficult to for people living there to import quality products, but Pagua Bay does not skimp.

Besides the owners, the rest of the staff are amazing as well! Although Pagua is in a safe area (and Dominica isn't known for crime anyway), they employ night security at the guesthouse, so you always feel safe and serene in your new surroundings. The restaurant staff are attentive and sweet and fun people who also just want their guests to enjoy the food, take in the ambiance and learn all about the island. The owners are not Dominican themselves, but the rest of the staff are local and offer a wealth of knowledge about the people, history, culture and anything there is to do in the area. And anything that can be done on the island, the staff can arrange for you.

Oh, and enjoy the food you will! It's local (you can even visit the greenhouse on the property to see all the veggies you'll be eating for dinner), fresh, delicious and affordable. Pagua has so much to offer, but they're not pretentious. They cater to travelers and locals and clearly just want everyone to enjoy the island like they do. Hands down, Pagua Bay Bar and Grill is the best restaurant on the island.

With Pagua Bay, you get the advantage being somewhere that allows you to hike, swim, snorkel, scuba, go canyoning, horseback ride, fish, boat and basically enjoy nature to the fullest ... but you come home to your room, you get to indulge in a truly luxury experience. If you're coming to Dominica, Pagua Bay is definitely the place you want to make home.

We booked into pagua bay for the first two nights of our trip to dominica purely on the basis of the trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! The cabanas are really something special - total luxury inside - with views of the sea and the sounds of the waves. The food in the pagua bay bar and grill is delicious, so delicious that we made time to stop off again at the end of the vacation on our way back to the airport! The bar has some of the best views we saw on the island, over the bay and beyond. Rick and Alisha were great - they are super friendly and helped us hire a car (you will definitely need to hire a car) and gave us brilliant advice for visiting the best places. Will be recommending pagua bay to anyone visiting dominica!
