“Good, but not that good”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Until the end of 2011 this place was run by Chris and Linda, who have a pretty amazing reputation according to the locals and also the guest book. Then Peter and Lystra took over. They are friendly and helpful, but some of the magic has been lost. The rooms are spotlessly turned out and the location is good, but nobody ever drinks at the bar and guests rarely eat at the restaurant (The Bamboo -- see TripAdvisor reviews) or swim in the pool. As a result, the Lodges are more like rented accommodation than a hotel with its own atmosphere, but you can rent accommodation as good as this in Calibishie for 100 USD a night. To compete, Calibishie Lodges has to resuscitate the communal facilities such as the pool, restaurant and bar.

“lunch stop”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

Good place to stop off and have lunch. Prices fair and open view of hustle & bustle passing by. Remember, there are on Carib Time... a slower pace.

“Superb Dinner, Company & Wine!”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

I travel around the Caribbean a lot and eat out wherever I go, so to come across a place as good as this in what is basically the middle of nowhere, I was very pleasantly surprised! The new owners (who are a very pleasant and intelligent English couple) catered meticulously to my allergies, delivered a superb bottle of red wine and dished up an amazing snapper meal that left me wanting to go back for more. In addition the ambiance is amazing and the prices excellent (from a complete Caribbean point of view). I will definitely go back as much as I can whenever in Dominica and highly recommend Bamboo Restaurant to anyone visiting the island in future.
