Location in the center of Roseau within easy walk of everywhere in town and part of an old fort made this a very convenient place to stay. Our room was overlooking the sea with views down to Scotts Head and the balcony a nice venue to watch the sunset. While the room was large it was somewhat tired and not...

The staff are really courteous and helpful. The management of our dive group was well done. I had a difficulty with my room due to an allergy and the day staff responded well and quickly. My ocean front room was beautiful and spacious. The oceanfront is rocky. The sunsets are spectacular although often blocked by very large cruise ships. The...

We stayed here in February 2017 in one of the Fort rooms. We enjoyed the room and while our room wasn't considered "ocean view" we could still enjoy a view of the ocean and we were also over a nice garden so we enjoyed sitting out, watching the birds, and having a coffee every morning. Our only critique is that...

We had a nice room overlooking the sea. Two comfortable large beds, good curtains, nice balcony, proper working aircon. Good free Wifi. It's not cheap but there is hardly any competition. Some rooms are currently being upgraded/redecorated, on our last day our room was smelly from the paint job they had been doing to the room next door. There is...

Compared to the competition -- which do not make much of an effort -- even across the street, this hotel is a gem. Beautiful, comfortable, polite staff, great shopping and near most attractions. Great views, too.

Located right on the ocean in the heart of Roseau, but with it's own oceanfront. Great view of the Scot's Head Point. Has Buddy Dive located right there with it's own dock. Food there is very good at the hotel restaurants Rooms are huge with a sizable balcony. Service to get a drink is a bit slow even allowing that...

Look nowhere else - Fort Young is the place to stay in Dominica. My fifth stay here and I will keep coming back. Great hotel with good restaurants and a nice bar which is also frequented by the locals which means that the atmosphere is much better that the usual hotel bars around the world. Staff is extremely friendly and...
