We just returned from a week long honeymoon in Dominica. Stayed in the Penthouse on the top of Calibeshi Cove. It was a wonderful stay and the room was truly spectacular, large and comfortable, with a wrap-around balcony and views straight out to the azure Caribbean. Arl Robinson met us and was a great host for the entire week. We went out with Arl on several trips around the island where he showed us: a roadside place where we purchased (and we all ate) cassava bread (hot, sweet, delicious), the Kalinaga Territory, Emerald Pool (water cold and delightful, we each splashed around, the fifty foot falls tumbling onto our heads). Arl knows a lot of folks and he is a knowledgable guide. Several notes: Dominica is a real rain forest and hikes are mostly for serious hikers. If the book says moderate, that means the hike is moderate for hikers, not non-hikers. We hit a trail from Pennville to Capuchin that was listed as "easy" but was anything but. It took us four hours of strenuous walking, not the listed three. Arl came looking for us, I must admit, but we were almost there by the time he came looking from the opposite end. Also, the wind on the north side of the island is usually very strong, so be prepared for wind. We had several great dinners prepared by Arl and the overall experience was just wonderful. Very quiet, which is what we were seeking. Only one small complaint: the soaking pool on the balcony stays very cold - Hazel the manager said they were working on that. Go have a drink and dinner at POZ, just up the road. Quite a hoot, and good to boot.
