We spent two weeks in Dominica, the first of which was spent in Manicou River, at the northwest tip of the island near Portsmouth and our stay there was the highlight of the trip. As the other reviews state, Manicou River is not the easiest...More

What an incredible experience! Every photo you see here is accurate, but still does not do Manicou River justice! It is absolutely beautiful and truly a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience. You will have little frogs, lizards, and birds milling about and will hear the life of the...More

Hi Lizzie, Thanks so much for the great review. This level of detail really helps others to understand the Manicou River experience. To clarify regarding breakfast, we do serve both full and continental breakfast. The reason it's not included in the standard rate is because...More

Ten fantastic days exploring Portsmouth and surrounding areas. Manicou River was a great location to do this from but the real winner for us was the free "million dollar" views from the bungalows. Every morning, every day, every evening and even in the middle of...More

Hi Angela, Actually NYC is one of the easiest start-points for getting to Dominica. Have you looked at Jet Blue via San Juan or St Lucia or AA via San Jan? Also check out Norwegian Airlines. They have very cheap fairs to... More

Response from Manicou_River | Property representative |
Hi, thanks for the inquiry. Our cottages are all open-fronted, which means they have no closed wall on the side facing the view. So, no, none of them have air conditioning. Just cool mountain breeze.
