Best hotel in Dominica

I have been traveling to Dominica for over 20 years, since completing medical school at Ross university there. This hotel by far is the most luxurious, best location (center of town), historical (can't believe the government there allowed a historical fort/site be turned into a hotel). The lobby/reception area is the only part of the original fort that is still intact, and is beautiful. Restaurant in the hotel is the best in town, and hotel is across the street from their "white house". Many local government parties are held in the ballroom. Nice pool, minutes to most popular site seeings places (Champain beach, jofalgra falls, Ti Tu Gorge, Fresh water Lake...) and their main daily produce market. Their master suites (only 3) are great bargains, huge, ocean view with newly renovated double bathroom/showers... for $250 per night is a true bargain. Concierge is Sonia, she is probably one of the smartest people in Dominica and well connected to the rich and famous on the island. She holds the key to what ever you need/want in Dominica. They will not haggle you over little things (no charge for extra bed for my son...) and the people are in general very nice to the tourist (their main source of income).

Birthday Getaway with Family

The hotel met most of my expectations for a 45th birthday getaway for some shopping and fun. We live on the north end of the island so going to the "big city" of Roseau is always fun. We have stayed at the Fort Young on a previous occasion and knew what to expect. Overall the stay was fine with the exception of a strong mold odor coming from the A/C unit in our room which necessitated us to keep the balcony sliding glass door open for the duration of our stay. We may have slept without the A/C but the ceiling fan was not operational as well.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Old Stone Bar and Grill is a couple of minute walk away and the ambiance and food was outstanding! I had the grilled Mahi Mahi with sides of croquettes made from local ground provisions and fried plantains which were the best I have ever eaten! This says a lot as I have eaten them all across the Caribbean. My wife had the curried goat which was very good as well. Overall highly recommended!
