Fort Young Hotel
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Roseau
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2017

Fort Young is the best hotel in Roseau and it has all the amenities for a great family diving trip. The kids loved the pool, the food was great and our room was clean and comfortable (deluxe room was big and comfortable for a family of 4). Buddy Dive runs an excellent diving operation. The hotel staff was helpful (troubles operating the safe and air conditioning were promptly taken care of) and provided good information for seeing the sites. The hotel location is excellent for day or afternoon trips to the waterfalls, Titou Gorge, hot springs, etc.

I stayed at Fort Young Hotel on a short work trip, my plan is to return one day for a longer non work visit. The service was very good and the view from the room was breathtaking. My biggest issue was not due to the hotel, but to other guests who allowed their swimsuits and underwear to swing like buntings from home made lines on their balconies. The room was quiet and comfortable, the the extractor fan in tge bathroom was a little loud when in use, but that ensured that I turned off the light and fan as soon as I was done, so perhaps it was for the best. All else aside, I would love to spend more time I this hotel to take I more of what it has to offer.

Living in Bermuda, we are surrounded by history...but when we travel, we are always looking to dive in the local history wherever we are.

My first visit to Dominica I stayed at Fort Young. A very quiet hotel within a 250 year old fort.

Friendly staff, and very, very helpful concierge....

I had to catch an early flight so they made me a breakfast to go and it was handed to me prior to getting on the bus back to the airport

Amazing views

Not much to say except that like all my previous stays the Fort Young experience was as pleasant as one could hope for . Clean comfortable accommodation, courteous staff and a pervasive friendly, homely ambience - what more can you ask??/

I didn't stay at this hotel but some of my dive group did. They said the rooms were very nice. I stayed at the Anchorage which is "lesser" but better. I did eat and drink here and the outdoor patio is huge and covered while still having the open air charm. The service was quite good, especially considering you're on an island. The food is good and the drinks abundant. If you want a 3/4 star hotel experience while on Dominica this may be your spot. It is quite close to downtown and you can catch a ride on any of the white minivans which stop for travelers anywhere along the roads. Only 2 coins will pay the way. I have been on many islands - Dominica is by far my favorite.

Stayed: April 2017
