This is an incredibly beautiful spot on an unbelievably beautiful island. Staff are constantly cleaning and sprucing up the rooms, facilities and grounds. We recommend paying extra for an oceanfront room - it is worth the backporch view and the sound of the ocean. We don't recommend the resort if you have small children, as the pool water is natural salt and dark in color, and the ocean is rough and isn't an option for swimming (but it is absolutely gorgeous to watch). The open air restaurant overlooking the river and ocean is beautiful and so relaxing. The frequent rain showers keep everything green and refreshing.One downside is actually an upside in a way -the resort is far from any other restaurants, stores, but that also makes it incredibly private and peaceful. There are hummingbirds, and beautiful plants and colorful flowers are everywhere.
Only negative experience is that you can end up spending a lot more money here than the cost of your room. We had the sense that the free activities offered there were an opportunity to try to sell their tours, though it was soft sell approach and nothing pushy. The tour guides for the hotel were fantastic, but being more offering of basic info about buses, local stores to buy supplies, and arrangements with cab drivers would be appreciated. You probably want to rent a car if you stay here - though bear in mind that the infrastructure on the island is constantly in disrepair and driving can be pretty scary. The staff at Rosalie Bay is largely Dominican, and the culture and people of the island are so beautiful, dignified, and community oriented. It is hard to fully express the positive impact of the natural beauty and people of this island. We will carry the vibrations with us for a long time
