Roseau Valley Hotel
TravelPod Member ReviewsRoseau Valley Hotel
Staying at the Roseau Valley Hotel is like staying at your grandma's house. The rooms are large and well-furnished, but the furniture is old, like a grandma's house. It has good hot water and internet access. The owners are very friendly people who care about the safety and security of their guests, like a grandma would. They were always willing to give me pointers on how to most effectively get to where I wanted to go, and always said to call if I ran into problems. The location is not in Roseau the city, so to go back and forth a lot would be a hassle, but it is a short bus ride, the buses run pretty regularly, and they are very cheap. The hotel itself is set back in the woods up in the mountains where it is very pretty. I recommend this hotel to any budget travelers who don't plan on being out in the city late at night.

... It was a bus/minivan. A small group which is nice. Anyway, off we go. It doesn't take long to discover this island needs serious road work. Potholes every two feet, and only wide enough for one vehicle. We also discover our driver has no concept of using a brake pedal. If you are in the road at the same time we are it sucks to be you. He's not stopping, swerving maybe, but definitely not stopping. We happen to be sitting in the very back seat, so any corner we ...
... tree branch that sparked easily to start a fire and even a natural Viagra. The waterfall was absolutely gorgeous and the hike was totally worth it. We heard later from the rangers who were fixing the trail that they were removing the platform we had been standing on the next day as it was unsafe (oops). Ryan climbed down the rocks to feel the spray from the waterfall but they were really slippery & steep so I opted out after ...
... infrastructure and even the billboards. I will attach the picture of one that is most certainly thought-provoking.
Regardless of politics though, Dominica was really a paradise in terms of its natural habitat. It is most definitely a rainforest – with a divine temperature and incredible views to match! I had the pleasure of visiting and snorkeling in one of their most famous reefs, Champagne Reef – where bubbles constantly rise ...
Another day, another tropical island country. :-) Had another extraordinary day today tubing along the Layou River, swimming under a waterfall at the Emerald Pool, strolling around Roseau (the capital of Dominica), and feasting on a decadent eight-course dinner on board Celebrity Summit's premium French restaurant, The Normandie. Not bad for a Tuesday!
I woke up at 8:20 a.m. to get ready for the "River Tubing ...

ST. PIERRE, MARTINIQUE TO ROSEAU, DOMINICA
We got an early start to Dominica this morning but as with all of our recent trips it took a good few hours longer than it should have. We did raise the stay sail which gave us an extra knot or so but not having the Genoa really hurt because there was some great wind.
After weeks of ...
