“Relaxation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Friendly and accommodating staff. Good ambiance. No doubt a waterfront room is the ideal place to come home to while visiting the world's best nature isle. Even if you stay elsewhere, be sure to pencil in dinner at the waterfront restaurant.

We had a nice stay at the Fort Young Hotel. The staff were generally friendly and responsive. Our room had a nice view that looked out over the ocean. The room and bathroom were both large. We had a large deck as well. We had a number of meals in the hotel dining room. We generally enjoyed dinner, which permitted ordering from the menu other than on one occasion. The hotel lunch is a buffet, which was acceptable, but which had limited food options. The hotel is built into an old fort and consists of multiple buildings put together, which can be a bit confusing at first. The Internet is free but not always available. We had persistent problems with Internet access during our 3 night stay. We would stay here in the future.

The hotel was excellent! The staff members were all very pleasant and accommodating. The meals were delicious and quite reasonably priced. We noted that some other travellers enjoyed some facilities like diving, that we did not participate in. They certainly appeared to have a wonderful time!
Having Khatts Tours on site, with most gracious and accommodating representatives made our stay even better. They tailored tours to our needs and desires. Fantastic! Many, many thanks to all the Hotel staff and to Khatts Tours for a wonderful experience. The one thing I did miss was the chance to sit ocean-side with other guests to have a drink and enjoy the scenery with others.

Room Tip: Ocean view is essential

I have to come to Dominica on business often and find myself enjoying my stay at Fort Young more and more. The people that work there go out of their way to be accommodating; one time they even kept the buffet open over a half hour because we were running late. The hotel itself is a bit worn, but I think it adds charm to it. The pool is beautiful and the hotel has all the necessary amenities.

Great history (old fort), nice people (except those at front desk, who didn't seem eager to help), food at restaurant was quite good. BUT, rooms that look great in the photos are actually worn, dingy, not all that clean and not well serviced. Sinks were rusted, cabinets dinged/dented, windows in the bedroom didn't open, but did leak water all over the floor during a rain storm. For 2 of us in a suite with 2 bathrooms, we had 2 bath towels and one hand towel and 2 bars of soap. Took 2 days to get more (never did get more soap). We were supposed to have 2 beds, but realized when we checked in that they were adding a cot and in overhearing problems of others upon check-in, we decided to just share the bed. The location is lovely, however (if a little commercial right on the water where cruise ships dock), and very convenient to scuba diving which leaves right from the hotel.

Dear Janet

Thank you for your feedback.

We are quite disappointed that there were some areas during your stay that did not meet your expectations.

Just to respond to some of the points brought forth by you, we do have daily room service which includes the replenishing of linen and other amenities such as soaps, shampoos and conditioners. In regards to the window in the suite, this is a stationary glass window however the suite has a wrapped around balcony accessible from the living area. The balcony overlooks the ocean.

Our aim at the Fort Young Hotel is to ensure that our guests are happy and that their expectations are met. We would have loved to rectify the situation before you left. However we hope that we are given an opportunity to serve you again in the future.
