Red Rock Haven met all of our expectations, and then some. I do not know where to begin a description---the lodging, the views, the food or the staff. Red Rock Haven is not a huge place; there are two bungalows and a two-bedroom villa. We stayed in the villa, because we wanted to have plenty of room to relax on the veranda by the pool, and we wanted to cook simple meals. The villa is spacious and airy, and sits a bit up on the hillside, so the views are panoramic. We thought we would cook more than we did, but we discovered the food at the Escape Beach Bar and Grill (also at Red Rock Haven--a 1 minute walk from the villa) and did not want to eat anywhere else (see our restaurant review). The Pointe Baptiste Beach is right at Red Rock Haven, so we could swim and walk, and admire the dramatic cliffs that surround the cove. This is a great spot to watch the sunset. But more than the room, more than the food, more than the views, it is the people at Red Rock Haven that make the stay an exceptional experience. Stacy, the owner, was there to help ease us into daily life on Dominica. He and Rita gave us advice on shopping, snorkeling and sightseeing---everything. He arranged a hike to Boiling Lake and in general did so much to make us welcome. I recommend Red Rock Haven to everyone wanting to relax and take in the vibrancy of Dominica.
