We enjoyed our stay and the staff is very professional, friendly and efficient. We loved the atmosphere and services at the hotel. We would definitely utilize this facility in the future. Our room was located with a fantastic view of the waterfront overlooking the incoming cruise ships.

Unfortunately, Trip advisor does not allow you to review a place within 3 months of being there before. This is very frustrating for us reviewers. By the time 3 months goes by, you could well have forgotten. I didn't. When we stayed the first time (see October 16), I gave Fort Young 4 stars and said it deserved 4*+. We...

could forewarn potential guests about all the steps, especially older folks with bad knees like myself. Can't go anywhere without climbing steps up and down then up and down again. The elevator is not centrally located and even with the elevator you usually have to go up or down steps to get to where you want to be.

Rooms are not ready upon arrival. My last three visits to hotel I have experienced up to a 2 hour delay with check in. Then they suggest you go to the bar to enjoy the free drink you would get if your room was ready. Maybe they should adjust the check in time to 5pm and check out at 2pm.

Enjoyed our two week stay at the Fort. Staff are very friendly. Loved the convenience of the on site dive shop & proximity to downtown. The food was excellent at the hotel & we also visited many local restaurants. Dive sites were excellent, lots of coral, sponges, turtlrs, etc!

Overall a very good experience. I have stayed there before and there is consistency in the service. The only thing is they need to do away with the Fort Rooms. Not very good value for money. The new side of the Hotel is the best with the best view of the ocean.

Ok - the hotel may need a little bit of TLC but the staff are fantastic and its location is a delight. Get an ocean view room as this is the place to be. Lots of diving opportunities and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Enjoy beautiful Dominica from here and you will have a superb time

The views, history, proximity to walking around for lunch in town, and especially the staff - so amazingly friendly and sincere. We stayed in an ocean view room. Amazing how sound-proofed the doors were. Coffee on the terrace. Wonderful. Breakfast overlooking the ocean. Food great.

Our group of 12 went to Dominica to scuba dive. Fort Young Hotel was chosen because of reviews of the hotel and the dive operation (Buddy Dive).

The hotel is the best on the island within a reasonable price range, but the hotel is not a luxury hotel which was okay with us. Super convenient to Roseau and scuba diving. Has a nice view of the Caribbean and we went for lap swims in front of the hotel every day by jumping off of the pier with...
