Everything was great. Pool, room vidw, service, cleanliness. Food was ok, definitely above average on Dominica. Only complaint is the room lighting which was too white/bluish and sharp. This issue seems to run through all of Dominica. They should really consider importing better lamps with warmer hues. That would improve the atmosphere a lot. Also, could have been more bikini...

Good hotel, clean rooms, nice view, good service, many tv channels. The only bad thing would be that their tours were really expensive. For example, the boiling lake tour costed 186 usd for two people which was a bit too much. Close to everything!

Friendly staff, great service, good food, everything you need for business travel and great for when you have time to relax! Beautiful restaurants and homey rooms with very private balconies. Have stayed at other hotels in Roseau and they didn't compare.

We canceled our last night at the Pagua Bay Hotel (beeing charged 300$ USD there anyway) for a night at Fort Young because we needed to be in Roseau early on next morning. We fully regret that decision. After a hard long day crossing the whole Island 3 times it seems we have been given the worst room? or they... More

The new rooms are much better for business stay than the older rooms. The hotel is perhaps the best on the island for a professional stay and is within walking distance of the centre of roseau. Quaint country with incredible flora and fauna. Hope they recover from the last hurricane disaster.

Enjoyed our stay at Fort Young. The rooms are nice and it is convenient for those who use Buddy Dive. Staff was nice, food was decent. Only complaint is that our water was periodically shut off during our stay for short durations. Really enjoyed the diving and hiking.

Dominica is not one of the most affluent places in the world. The Fort Young Hotel does a really good job with what it has to work with. The rooms are much like most big hotels, probably a bit older and a bit smaller than some but they have nice touches. They add a cable link for Wifi and a... More
