I have been to Dominica several times and stayed various places but I always return to Cocoa Cottages and recommend it to my friends. It is as comfortable as home with better food. I love the eclectic recycled architecture, the local art, the fabulous fresh fruits and vegetables creatively cooked by Iris, the co-owner.
I travel solo, so it is nice to speak with the other guests around the communal table.The local people are friendly and fun to talk to also. And of course the hiking, waterfalls and hot springs are never ending. The island is a big natural health spa. The locals seem to know a lot about the local herbs and "bush teas'. I always leave feeling rejuvenated and healthier.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Cocoa Cottage--Dominica Mind Body Adventure. Cocoa Cottage is an artistic guest house located in the heart of the Roseau Valley, only a few miles from town but worlds apart. This valley is home to many waterfalls, sulfur pools, rivers, and various trails, all within minutes' drive of the cottage. Cocoa Cottage is imaginative, earthy, rustic and whimsical, a fine gentle touch with rough edges. It is a perfect union of all that nature offers. Our kitchen provides food for the soul, using the plentiful offerings of our island. At any time you'll find yourself deep in lively conversation with someone you just met, connecting, sharing, inspiring and being inspired. We adopt eco- friendly daily practices as a way of connecting with ourselves, with one another, and with the world around us. ... more less
