I was hesitant about staying here since it is so close to Roseau but after 10 days here I'm coming back again on Jan. 24! Lovely accommodations, great atmosphere, the BEST Internet on the island, and the dive shop (Buddy Dive) is just down the stairs from my room. I can't say enough about the staff and how friendly they...

This is a lovely hotel, probably the nicest hotel in Roseau. It's really fun that it's literally built into an old fort. Stone walls in the lobby, stone steps, cute courtyards, etc. The rooms are basic but big and clean and nice enough. The balconies have fabulous views! You are right over the water, and they're a great place to...

Dominica was the only Caribbean island I had not visited in doing business as such I eagerly grasped the opportunity when this meeting came up. The office manager confirmed our reservation for Fort Young Hotel in the capital so the inquisitive mind had to see it via the net. With mixed expectations we got to the island and eventually after...

We had a lovely time here; staff really friendly and helpful. Went diving with Buddy Dive who were great, whale watching and trips organised through the activity centre. We did a visit to the Carib village and emerald pool on the way to the airport on their suggestion which was a lovely way to spend our last day on this...

Had a wonderful time here. We took a suite (room 207) which was massive. The standout was the staff - everyone was so warm and helpful (much needed when one bag didn't arrive on our flight in). The breakfast was great (good range, lovely setting) and so was room service. The location is very convenient too - Roseau is a...

I really liked my experience with this hotel, the staff is very welcoming, helpful. The room is beautiful, spacious, well-maintained, the view from the balcony is magical. There is a Wi - Fi connection that passes very well in all parts of the hotel. The meal is very good

Ocean front room! The local birds come to your table during your breakfast, sweet. Relaxing in the swimming pool and a fresh cocktail it's so cool. Room very clean and top level service! Practically in the middle of downtown

It was a really good experience for me. The food was full of flavor and quite different than what I am used to. I got a taste of local and I loved it. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I would definitely go back. The locally made drinks at the bar was my highlight! I loved going to the bar...

This is a very good hotel but the price was a bit too much for the average customer. I will stay again at this hotel if the price is lower. Their bar service was not very good and the liquor quality was underwhelming.

great. This was not my visit stay over at Fort Young Hotel. The kids love it. They totally like the pool. We forgot our gym shoes maybe Fort Young could have gym shoes on rental. The breakfast was good especially the Sunday buffet.
