... Lounge. We had never been to this restaurant before so when we discovered from Charlie and Glenn that it was included with cruise (no added price), we decided to check it out. The Sports Lounge provides all types of comfort foods inclduing chicken wings, hot dogs, hamburgers, fish and chips and wonton soup. I especially liked the wonton soup with lemon on the side.
We had an awesome day.... :)
... have cruise ship ports, although I believe they are working on more. I'm not sure about the airport situation - there are two on the island, and neither can handle jets, so by and large people have to transit to another nearby island to get to Dominica. Following our break, we hopped in the van and headed back south further, through the town of Soufriere. Basically a sleepy fishing village with maybe a half dozen streets, Soufriere was filled with colorful houses and shacks ...
... Dominican version of a native American reservation. Here is the only place in the Caribbean where the people who were here before Columbus still have a thriving community. The tour through the community was a very good one and I highly recommend it.
It starts with some background. Columbus came to Dominica, named it, left because he couldn't find a decent place to land, and then came back. The people who referred to themselves ...
... decorated to make it feel like it was outside. The food was ok, and the golden apple juice was really good.
Then, it was back to the hotel for my afternoon tour pickup. This tour took us on an inland water adventure. It was ok that it was raining all afternoon because we were soaked anyways. We first drove through the botanical gardens that I had walked yesterday. This time, I had commentary, but it still wasn't that much greater ...
... attach pictures from my email right now (they are too big to send), but I will figure out a way to send them sometime today. There are close to 100 so far! I look forward to writing to you and sharing my experiences in Brazil with you next week. Let me know if you have any questions about my journey so far or what is in store for me in the near future. I’d be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Have a great weekend guys!

Historical Traveler Reviews Jungle Bay, Dominica Roseau
I just returned from a fantastic 5 day stay at Jungle Bay Resort & Spa. We paid for the jungle spa package, which I think is definitely the best way to go. The food was great, the excursions were fun and exciting, the cottages were charming, and best of all the staff was amazing. It was a perfect vacation. Thank you Sam, for a wonderful stay. We will definitely plan to make a trip back to Jungle Bay... 5 days were not enough!!!
A Great place to stay
The Spa Package is great. The local people and the staff at Jungle Bay is very friendly and the service is great. The rooms are very clean, and the organic food is good and healthy. I highly recommend Jungle Bay. I spent 6 nights there on my honeymoon and we want to go back. My wife and I have both traveled quite a bit and this is one of the best and most unique places we have ever been.
Jungle Bay Resort & Spa is the most amazing place. It is perfect for the adventure traveller or anyone just wanting a relaxing get-away. The staff at the resort were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. The meals were great. The accomodations are truly unique - beautiful handcrafted cottages amongst the jungle. The day trips that the resort has to offer are not to pass up. The boiling lake hike was tough but well worth the burn. I loved the adventure aspect of the trip. Dominica has strived to keep its reputation up as the nature island. they have done that. The island is unspoiled and beautiful. It is not a tourist trap where you are fighting crowds and pushing through line ups. We really enjoyed meeting some locals. They are so proud of their island and they love to share it with guests. We had a great time exploring by day and relaxing by night. I think this would be the perfect spot for a wedding. It was very romantic - like a second honeymoon for us. I really can't think of anything bad to say about this place. They have it all; a apa, a yoga studio, excellent food, great staff, super day trips/ tours clean beautiful private cottages.
We stayed at Jungle Bay this past december for a family trip and had an absolutely wonderful time. Sam (the owner and manager) was extremely helpful and saw to our every need. He even went so far as to take us personally to a Jazz club in downtown Roseau - a very cool experience. The resort itself is remote with only the sounds of the ocean to lull you to sleep. The bungalows are bright and open, made of local hardwood. Sam employed all local laborers to build the place. The outdoor showers in the bungalows are AMAZING. The resturant was very good - I espescially enjoyed the bannana pancakes with honey for breakfast. The island itself is fantastic, with many stunning hikes nearby (dont miss the hike up a blue-lagoon color river to Victoria falls). While we were there Sam was expecting a shipment of kayaks, something that would make the experience there that much more enjoyable. Jungle bay is a special place, with good people. You wont be dissapointed. If I take a trip with my girlfriend in the future, Jungle Bay will be in our plans. Thanks Sam, and everyone else at the resort for a wonderful vacation!
Why would anyone go to Dominica and stay anywhere else? We paid for the package with excursions, transportation, yoga and spa treatments. You couldn't get a better deal. Sam and Glenda have a good thing going. I hope commerce and popularity never destroy the charm. Everyone stops and introduces themselves. Sam walks around morning and night chatting with you. The cook comes to tell you goodbye because she knows its your last day before you even tell her. The guides are terrific and take you everyone you want to see. They have daily excursions and yoga scheduled. I hope they move past beginners yoga and they are able to have the lower bar staffed. When we were there, the hotel was not full so we didn't get to see the bars up and running. We got to know other guests and the whole staff. We stayed 10 days. I think 8 would have been perfect, as the excursions and menu start to become repetitive. Luckily, we were able to find plenty of excursions to keep us busy and sore. We will never forget this vacation!
Great time at Jungle Bay
I just returned from a relaxing and fun week at beautiful Jungle Bay Resort & Spa on the lush island of Dominica. My cottage/tree house was simple and well-designed for the tropics with cross breezes and small porch. The people at Jungle Bay were very hospitable and knowledgeable about the island. Food was good and the service friendly, if a bit on the slow side. Went on several hikes with local guides who knew the area like the backs of their hands. I went with a group that had yoga classes every day in the beautiful yoga center. If you want to vacation in a non-commercial, lush tropical setting and to get out into nature, this is a great place!
For the Adventous Soul - Paradise
Jungle Bay combines the greenery of the forest, hospitable engaging staff, and truly memorable experiences.
This is some place you'll be telling stories about for years to come. See our image library to get a sense of the wonder of this place.
Thanks Sam and Glenda for a truly inspiring getaway.
PS. Don't eat on the plane, if you are lucky enough to be picked up at the airport by one of the Jungle Bay guides you'll probably be stopping along the road to dine on all kinds of fresh fruit - for certain there will be fresh juice awaiting you in the car.
What a perfect vacation! Jungle Bay is special for so many reasons...
A week on the island of Dominica in the care of the remarkably friendly and caring staff at Jungle Bay Resort should be prescribed to anyone forced to endure a New England winter. I now use the memory as my meditation focus when I need to find a peaceful retreat in the midst of my hectic schedule.
