What a lovely place tucked into the lush hillside above the ocean! This is a perfect place to stay if you have a student at Ross University as it's a 5 minute walk away! The owner is very knowledgeable about things to do in Dominica. And the breakfast is delicious! I'll be back!

My family and I were in Picard/Portsmouth for the Christmas Holiday. The Champs advertised a special Christmas Eve dinner and we decided to make a reservation. The chef, Eric, is superb! The pumpkin soup, the lobster macaroni and cheese, the filet mignon, everything was absolutely delicious! We highly recommend The Champs Restaurant!

If you're expecting a 'chain hotel' then this is not for you... its a typical Caribbean guesthouse with furniture/fixtures the same as a local would buy for their own house - so a bit mis-matched and based on what is available. But what stands out here is the management and staff that make you feel right at home from the...

Great unwind from the busyness of work. The hot tub was just the relaxing thing needed and the bed was super comfortable and made for wonderful rest. Breakfast included is a nice touch and the breakfast area feels like home dining right next to the kitchen.
