Terrific for scuba divers. Buddy Dive at the hotel and they do a great job. Rooms nice and a have view of ocean. My husband enjoyed his massage. We enjoyed the pool and the jacuzzi at sunset. The hotel has entertainment (music/food) several nights a week which is very worthwhile Food good; service slow. Otherwise, I would have given a...

Great location to walk into the town of Roseau. The service in the hotel restaurant / bar is slow. Many times the staff would deliver a drink to our table and ignore others at the table waiting to order a drink or food. They have no condiment trays to accompany their food items, such as hamburger and fries. The scuba...

It seems to be one of the better hotels in Roseau. There was construction and renovation going on while we were there. Our travel partners had an ocean view room that had been renovated while we had one of the fort rooms which had not been upgraded. They had 110 power in their room while we had typical three prong...

We loved our ocean view room above the pool. Clean. The bed was comfortable. Big bathroom. Fabulous view. Most of the staff were very friendly. The service was a bit slow but we got use to it. The food was not great but tolerable. The mixed drinks were ok. Nothing special. My husband tried the breakfast buffet and said it...

Beautiful view of the ocean. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff was very helpful and kind. Food was mediocre, but breakfast was poor. Dive shop and staff was excellent. Check-in and check-out was very speedy and easy. Tours were easily book and tour drivers were excellent.

I really enjoyed my time at Fort Young and in Dominica. We arrived a bit early so our rooms were not ready, but we had no problem sitting down at the bar and having some lunch. The room was massive, and the balcony overlooked the sea. The bathroom could do with being renovated but that was a small price to...

We actually stayed in an older section of the hotel and could see another section of the hotel that was being upgraded. However, our room leaked and smelt very musty. The public bathroom at the front bar was also not up to standard. Not good, quite disappointed in the experience.

Had an excellent diving trip. There is a dive shop right on premises and are very helpful with everything you could want. Have excellent shore excursions for non divers. There are places to eat around the area of the hotel and a grocery store. The food service at the hotel itself was a bit slow, but it was off season...

Went with group of 9 to fort young hotel for a week of diving. The diving itself was near the top of all Caribbean location I've visited. They had very healthy reefs, calm conditions and lots of underwater life. The dive operation was above average and the dive-masters were friendly. The hotel was mostly better than expected. (I believe the...
