If you're headed to Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica....this is the place to stay! Bar None! Located very close to campus. We stayed here for 5 days during the week of the White Coat Ceremony Sept. 2012. You'll enjoy wonderful evening breezes and lovely sunset views at DeChamps. The hotel owners , Lise and Hans are here to make your stay the very best ever. Thank you!!! Thank You!!! Breakfast is served each morning on the beautiful open air dining room. Each evening Lise and Hans have a special evening planned for guests, patrons and students who might be taking a little break from their studies... Monday Madness, Taco Tuesdays, Wacky Wednesday Wings, and Fine Dining Fridays. They make it fun! I think we enjoyed them all. One evening we joined the local Rotary Club for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. We took advantage of the hotel touring guides, the staff made all of the arrangements, and we had a few days of extensive sightseeing in beautiful Dominica. The best thing I can say, is this is the PLACE TO STAY. Best hosts, best food and best drinks, and the very best staff. They made us feel as if we were at "home". Thanks Lise and Hans...we loved it. INCREDIBLE STAY!!

Stayed here for 5 days in August 2012. This hotel is INCREDIBLE! The views are spectacular, Lise and Hans and all of their staff go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and your needs are met. You really do feel as if you're family here. The cooked to order breakfast is a great way to start the day and a jacuzzi is the perfect ending to a long day walking the hills. Recommend this hotel 110% if you are in the area!

We just spent 3 days at the hotel while checking in our son to Ross University.
What a great experience! Lise and her crew really make you feel at home.
The attention they give you goes far and beyond anything we have experienced world wide.
The room was comfortable and clean, just what we needed after walking, yes up hill, all day.
To wake up to a home cooked breakfast with a spectacular view was priceless.

My boyfriend and I stayed at De Champ while on a dive trip in Dominica with Cabrits. I was impressed with the accommodations (clean, comfortable, spectacular views) and especially the staff. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The bar was great, the breakfast was amazing, and Lise does a phenomenal job running the place. I would definitely return.

We stayed here during a diving trip and it was perfect. The rooms were nice and the views great. We had everything needed and the staff was extremely accomodating to our every request. We requested alternations to the time for breakfast to be quite early as we were diving early each day and they were more than pleased to accomdoate us. We even had to request a late dinner one night after a night dive and they were happy to accomodate us for that as well. Also, the staff was great to to get us local flowers and make a home-made birthday cake for our stay. The Bar area is nice with more great views. The owners were very attentive and responsive to us. Email communication was great before our arrival and we had good internet Wi-Fi on the property throughout our visit. We would stay here again!

Room Tip: All of the rooms require access via a few stairs. We had our 74 year old mother with us but the sta...
