What a gem of an experience we had at Papillote! The gardens are gorgeous, extensive, and inviting. The guide, Marcel, is extremely knowledgeable and was most friendly and helpful.

This is a very nice hotel in an absolutely unforgettable location. It's about ~20 mins from Roseau towards Trafalgar Falls across from the power station. If you like mountains and jungles, then don't even think about staying in Roseau. Stay here at least 1 night and you can bathe in their hot springs and enjoy the sunset/sunrise.
