HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 September 2016

My wife and I wanted to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary in a place offering adventure, relaxation, natural beauty, and that was located off-the-beaten path. After much research, we booked a one week stay for the end of August at Rosalie Bay Resort. It was an excellent choice! The resort is located on the Atlantic Ocean-side of the island. Our... More

Loved staying here. Not easy to find a hotel with these characteristics in Dominica. Beautiful, clean, comfortable, spacious rooms. You have a beach ( no swimming but it is a turtle nesting area :) )and next to it the Rosalie river. The views and silence is extremely relaxing. The location is unbeatable. It´s not that far from the International Airport.... More

The accommodations are superb - comparable to any US high-end hotel. The setting is magnificent, with the resort being on the Atlantic side of the island, where sea turtles frequently come to lay eggs. During our stay, we were able to see sea turtles both hatch and crawl across the beach into the ocean, which was an amazing experience. The... More

A beautiful resort on the Atlantic coast where the river meets the sea. The suites are very large and luxurious and the bed is likely the most comfortable ever. Service from the staff is good and the restaurant meals and ambiance are very good. Wifi was a bit spotty even though there were few guests. The beach is not very... More
