Papillote is one of my favorite hotels in the world. It has a wonderful broken-in feeling, like it has coalesced with its natural setting overtime. Its a type of aura that younger, newer buildings even on the same site couldn't possess.
That being said, we come for the hot pools. The duel pools (one hot, one cool) is one of my favorite places I know of in the world. This could be very well be the best constructed sulphur pool on Dominica. Its like my dream backyard.
The staff is so very nice. Housekeeping is solid. The restaurant food is always incredible. Front desk service is always helpful. Etcetera etcetera..
