The Fort Young Hotel is an actual fort from the seventeen century which lies on tot a moderate hill overlooking the Caribbean sea in Dominica.
Guests enter through historic gates with 2 authentic cannons perched on either side of the entrance.The reception room is small, cozy and dimly lit creating an intimate atmosphere.
The lay out of the hotel is somewhat confused and not orderly but thoughtfully placed signs leads one to the two dinning rooms,spa, fitness center etc.This is because the fort was placed on a hill
The food is really tasty and the service is good.
I am not impressed with the rooms , they are moderate and in need a tiny repairs.In fact the hotel though recommended could do with a bit of upkeep.The fitness room ,spa and jacuzzi is modest as is the infinity pool . The view however is priceless.
For a business week end I certainly recommend this hotel for a longer holiday type vacation its
