The experience of a life time.. I could write a novel about our time here in this beautiful, breath-taking, serene tropical island. My wife and I could never have picked such a perfect get-away. The island has so much to offer for all walks of life. We first arrived and was greeted by Zahir (The Man!!!) staff of Rosalie Bay, who was not only warm and friendly, but very knowledgeble and informative. Zahir spoke very passionately about his island which only made us more intrigued about what the island had to offer. Each day surprised us with new adventures from beautiful hikes through crystal clear rivers leading us to breath-taking waterfalls, jungles, mountainous terrain, black sand beaches, hot springs, gorgeous views from mountain peaks, and hikes to volcano and it's boiling lake!
Will bring our kids next time, so they themselves could experience the precious moments Dominica has given to us..RELAXATION, ROMANCE, RIVERS, RAINBOWS, and last but not least our Happy Hour Moment of drinking the best RUM!!!!!
Rosalie Bay's own chefs (when requested) will give you an experience of their culture's riverside cooking called :"One Pot". Rosalie Bay's beautiful black sand beaches is also a home to Leatherback seaturtles nesting site. Rosalie will call you to share an experience and watch the wonderful Leatherbacks that come ashore to lay their eggs.
Everyone was extremely friendly. Lise was well connected in the community and was very helpful in planning activities for my stay. I was traveling alone and without a car; she provided a personal local cell phone so that you could call her and she could come and pick you up from where ever you were in Portsmouth or Picard. Her staff was great, the food was great and the atmosphere was homey. I would stay there again without a second thought!
Warm and friendly staff, comfortable rooms, all at an excellent price -- this hotel has it all. The owner generally greets guests personally and is highly involved in making sure her guests enjoy their stay. And she is an excellent cook -- the best fish I've had!
I was in Dominica for one week and stayed at Serenity Lodges for the whole of my stay. There are three lodges and a dining area attached to the owners accommodation. Whilst the lodges offer relatively simple facilities they are set in a wonderful location. They are kept spotlessly clean by the owners Carina, Lester and their new assistant Mary. I had breakfast and dinner at the lodges on most days and I advised Carina prior to booking that I required a vegetarian option for all meals. I can honestly say that Carina went to great lengths to provide excellent variety for the meals and all from local produce. Carina's cooking was delicious!
I also had some great conversations with Lester who provided lot's of information to me about Dominica that enabled me to fill holes in my knowledge about the island.
If one is looking for spotlessly clean accommodation at a reasonable price in Dominica then Serenity Lodges are well worth considering.
