I requested an early check-in and was assured that, however upon arrival I had to remind the check-in staff that I was assured that my room would be ready and I had to endure an almost hour-long wait to be assigned a room. The in-room bathroom was extremely unpleasant. Counter and wall tiles are cracked, grout is black and dirty,...

The verandah was a great place to sit out on and there was a fly screen door.. There are great amenities here .. It is not a 5 star hotel, but does provide a...

Enjoyed my stay. The staff is nice and the food is excellent. I will stay at Fort Young again when I visit Dominica. The view of Roseau Harbour at breakfast provides an uplifting and refreshing backdrop to the start of the day.

First of all, you need to understand that Dominica is not fly-in tourist-friendly. The airport is way up at the northeast corner of the island, while the capital (and the Fort Young) are at the southwest...and there are long winding mountain roads in between. Figure 1.5 hours between them. The hotel does have airport transfer service available. We were upgraded...

We stayed here for a few days on a recent visit to Dominca and would have stayed longer if they had availability. The hotel has a great location in Roseau on the waterfront so you can see the cruise ships close up as they arrive. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The air con works well, too well at...

We had a quick stay in Dominica... not nearly long enough. But thoroughly enjoyed the Ft. Young hotel. Everyone of the staff that we interacted with were incredibly friendly and helpful. They made sure we maximized our time there. It's a quirky layout of the hotel, lots of half flights of stairs up and down. But you can't beat the...

It's my second stay at this hotel and I have to say I enjoyed it both times! The hotel is probably one of the best places to stay on the island. They have a great restaurant, but I wish they had indoor seating because it can get pretty hot on the island. The staff and guests are friendly and there...

The Fort Young Hotel is a 3 star property with historical ambience and the most recognized name in quality hospitality services in Dominica The Fort Young marries traditional elegance with breath taking views of the ocean. Our 71 guest rooms and suites are ideal for both business and leisure travellers. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, with free wi-fi throughout and all feature a terrace or balcony offering the most dramatic sea and sunset views imaginable. The Fort Young is perfectly situated to discover all this island's treasures. You can dive or go whale watching directly from our jetty.
