my wife and i had a great 5 days at mermaid's secret with tim and his wife sam in november 2012. at first we thought that their place was out of the way-----and it really is-----but that is what made it so fantastic. it is really tucked away in the rain forest and you get to totally experience the nature that drives you to dominica in the first place. the rivers around the property, and the swimming hole, are attractions that others would have to drive miles to see. you can just hang out and have it all. their property is simple and wonderful. the bar is right on the river and a nice social experience. tim and sam are the best hosts. very informative and friendly. willing to share and be involved with you. it just couldnt be better.
the cabin was very good....not luxurious, but never billed that way. it is very spacious, the bed was great and the bathroom very nice. the kitchen area is nice but do remember to get food because it is a long way to the store.
the cabin deck is delightful and i was able to easily get wifi on my laptop.
i can only recommend mermaid's secret really highly since we had such a good time there. i found them by mistake and it totally made our trip. you ust can't go wrong staying here.
