    The only conceivable reasons that Manicou does not have more excellent reviews are that 1) only three couples stay there at a time and 2) people want to keep the place a secret so that they can have it to themselves. Manicou really lived up...More

    My husband and I stayed at Manicou for our honeymoon. It was absolutely AMAZING. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view from the room was breathtaking. We can't wait to come back for a visit, and possibly in the future, move to Dominica.

    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.
