Island Bay Boutique Hotel
Reviewed 27 February 2013

The Island Bay Boutique Hotel should NOT be called a hotel. None of the amenities of a hotel. Should be called an apartment or hostel. Bedding was not changed at all until I started to complain after the 7th day. Had breakfast on first morning and didn;t eat there again. The meal was horrible.. canned sardines and stale bread, which we were charged $25 US. For excellent meals go to the Romance Cafe in Mero. Property is not up to par. I fell TWICE on the tiled steps because of the rain and on the walkway to the establishment.. no tile grip on steps and broken concrete. Oscallating fans for a ceiling fan, which makes so much noise you can't sleep. Will NEVER stay there again. I give this place NO STARS!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!

We liked the friendly atmosphere and best food and drinks on the island. Prices are resonable and the accomodation much better than the wellknown Tamarind Hotel 2 miles away. We spent amusing hours with angela the owner of the hotel. Try the selfmade rum punch.

Excellent stay

Our stay in the Dominica was a marvellous and unforgettable experience. It helped immensely by deciding to stay at the Morning Bird Apartment Hotel. My daughter and I stayed in a beautiful modern self-contained apartment. It was like “home-away-from home”. The apartment was cleaned daily and the fresh sheets and towels were comforting after a day of various trips and trails. It was great waking every morning to the breathtaking views of the mountains and the Caribbean Sea. The beach was only a stones throw away from the hotel, unfortunately with so much to do on the Island we only managed to spend one day on it.

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Rosma the receptionist, and enjoyed the wonderful food that was prepared for us.

I would just like to say BIG thanks to all the staff who were friendly and helpful and especially to Rosma and Angela for your great hospitality and kindness and for going out of your way to help out with advice.
(I still can’t find a decent mango in London!)

We had a great time being with you and thanks again for all you did to make our stay simply excellent

Corinne and I love the Island and I’m trying to decide when we can return! We already miss the beauty and energy of Dominica.
