Recently stayed at the Fort Young Hotel in Roseau on a hiking trip to Dominica. Great location in the town, close to ferry port, market, bank, restaurants. Hotel has a village feel with accommodation located around the grounds. Fort rooms are in original building and have partial or side sea view. Rooms have tea/coffee trays, hairdryer, iron, mini fridge and safe. Hotel has 2 bars, lovely pool, spa, 2 restaurants, gym and evening entertainment on certain nights. If you want to be in Roseau this is the place to be. Close by you will find whale watching trips and snorkelling.

Room Tip: Waterfront rooms have wonderful seaviews

I stayed at Fort Young over the Easter weekend and I must say the experience was a very good one. There were one or two aspects that could have used a little improvement, for instance the juice bar, where I couldn't get the drink that I most times will drink but still it did have a good variety of drinks. The staff was great; friendly, courteous, always willing to assist and very accommodating and there was one young lady who to me most demonstrated those attributes. Miss Lovely Sanchez, was really my first contact with the staff after the reception area, and really everything else was compared to the standard that she set. She was just as her name says "Lovely" and I am sure I'm not the only guest who was greatly impressed by her commitment and dedication to her job. All in all it was a really wonderful experience and I will be returning to Dominica and Fort Young Hotel.

We were able to get a room for 4 nights after walking out of a poor nearby hotel we originally booked. Our seafront room was large and very comfortable and staff could not be more helpful. The Waterside Restaurant overlooking sea is very pleasant with good food, although the limited nightly menu options don't change so if you are staying more than a night or two need to explore elsewhere. Talitha in the restaurant was particularly engaging and friendly. Quite expensive, but likely to be the best available in Roseau area. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in Dominica and will definitely visit again.

My boyfriend and I stayed a couple of nights at Fort Young Hotel. We were immediately charmed by the kindness of the staff, from the waiter at the bar to the reception and restaurant. All staff took very good care of us, naturally checking on us when appropriate, chatting with us in a welcoming way.
The room was very clean and had a great view.
Breakfast was good with a large choice until a certain time. (Buffet is open from 7.00 AM to 10.00 AM but was almost empty when we got there at 9.00 AM)
Fresh omelettes which you can customize at your choice were delicious.
The overall atmosphere is remarkably friendly. The hotel is ideally located.
We enjoyed two dinners at Fort Young Hotel and our experience was all positive.
A major advantage is that they also offer different excursions at reasonable prices. We went to a 7 hour hiking journey with a guide which was all organized by the hotel (transportation and guide) it was a fantastic experience.
We definitely consider staying at Fort Young Hotel again should we pass by Dominica in the future.

My husband and I spent four days in Dominica in March, a welcome contrast to the brutal winter in our home city of Toronto. From the phone call I made in January to book our room, I had a very positive feeling about the hotel and this first impression was accurate. We had an ocean view room in the new wing overlooking the harbour. We expected a pleasant room for the price, but our eyes popped out when we first entered our room. It was gorgeous. And it was very, very comfortable. The landscaping is out of this world.The dining room is positively outstanding and the service could not be any more efficient or charming. The hotel is embedded in the history of the capital Roseau and culturally it provides a great integration with the surrounding town and culture.

My husband and I have wanted to hike in Dominica for years and we finally got our acts together to go. Ken's Hinterland Tours, located in the hotel, is an amazing outfit and we managed to hike to the Boiling Lake, a very demanding trail but not to be missed, because of their excellent guide Kenan. Dominica, beyond its extraordinary natural beauty, is also home to the small remaining population of Caribe Indians, once dominant in the Caribbean. Our guide Kent, a Caribe from the reserve, lead us on a very insightful hike on our first day.

Sonia, from the Activity Desk, knows the island and all its amenities better than anyone else. We found ourselves at a wonderful little local restaurant one evening, thanks to her. She is outstanding at fitting the activity to the visitor, extremely patient, and very, very accommodating.

My husband and I fell head over heels in love with Dominica and will always stay at the Fort Young Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room. There is no bad view in Dominica, but the harbour, ocean and the surroun...

This place is class. From the beautiful sights and views of the ocean, especially at sunset, to the friendly people and good food and a great bar. This place is the place to stay. There is not much in Roseau, but don't let that fool you. The reason to go there is for the nature and the diving. Loved the island and the hotel. From the welcome we received from the hotel when we arrived, to the manager of the dive shop, everything was great. Frequently I find hotel rooms with mattresses that are mushy or just soft. The ones in the room I was in was perfect. No issues sleeping on these beds. Loved the pool, the Palisades restaurant and everything in between. Go and stay.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are a bit more expensive, but since getting there is half the battle, get one...
