Overall, very impressive. Safe, clean, courteous, responsive. Great views from oceanfront rooms (did not see view from other rooms). Slight negatives for very slow bar/restaurant service, and the occasional day when not all towels were replaced. Excellent wi-fi. Quality dive shop (Buddy Dive) on premises is a plus (we dove 17 times during our 1 week stay). Tours offered through...

This hotel was a nice one. The room was spacious and modern (had a nice view as well). The restaurants had quite nice food. There were a couple of minor glitches (the safe didn't function properly but they sent someone down to fix it pretty quickly and our packed lunches weren't always exactly what we ordered but not a big...

The Fort Young Hotel, has become our home away from home. The hospitality is impeccable. The staff always go out of their way to assist and offer a smile. Dominica is a fascinating island with lots to do, but just being at the Fort Young is sufficient enough for us. We love it here!

We just finished our 7 day stay at Fort Young Hotel in Roseau, Dominica and had a wonderful time. Room: We upgraded to a Deluxe Ocean Front Room and it was very new, clean, large, quiet, comfortable and had a great view. There were both European and US style outlets with the appropriate voltages that made charging all of our...

The Fort Young Hotel has character being built into an old Fort. The facility is simple, clean, and open air. One gets to enjoy the beautiful weather as one moves about the hotel. The dining areas are also open air so take the time to savour your refreshmentsand enjoy the nice weather. The service is a little slow so you...

Really enjoyed my stay at Fort Young. Security and Front Desk staff welcomed us as soon as we walked in. Our rooms face the sea. We could hear the waves lapping over the rocks during the night; very soothing. The piña colada at the bar was delicious. Rooms are very well appointed and quite large. I definitely recommend this hotel!

Considering that this is regarded as "the best hotel in Dominica" I think they are rather resting on their laurels . The hotel is clean and the staff fairly welcoming, but it feels as there are lots of opportunities missing. The lovely poolside bar was never staffed, and the sea view one only on one day of our 4 day...

These guys did a great job in renovating this hotel. Unlike many hotels, the renovation did not create a sterile environment and you still feel you are in the tropics. The location is ideal, a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal, the rooms are large, the pool deck is great with stunning views and the staff are all friendly....
