We spent two nights on our honeymoon here and the lovely staff places flowers in a hartshape on our bed, so attentive! Although we had some rain, this was a great location to stay: from the balcony we could see the sea and in the restaurant next to the little beach youcould have a lovely choice of dishes and cocktails to reasonable prices. The fact that the reef in front of the restauant is a really OK snorkling site makes this a sort of paradise we did not like to leave from. Apart from the hotel restaurant (which is great), there is a bunch of restaurants and supermarkerts nearby (on foot), mostly serving the US med students that are here (the hotel is next tot the campus and most folks you meet here are med students at Ross University or their spouses). The University patrols the vicinity with a secutity car, which makes you feel quite safe when out in the dark. Free parking on the (guarded) premises. Fridge on the room as well as some simple kitchen supplies. Bathroom is ok, good and hot water, although a bit shabby in maintenance. Although we did not use them, a brand new iron and board were available. The balcony is spacious and nice. And a good place to dry your swimming gear...
We had some trouble finding the place to park the car, as the big sign goes to the entry gate where you can only enter on foot and the small sign to the other gate is hard to read from the road. We did not need the kitchen really (but it was nice to be able to use the fridge), but if we would have wanted to cook, the kitchen supplies would be a bit meagre.
Great beach, clean hotel, helpful staff, and probably the safest area on the whole island. Perfect for extended stay , and relaxation . Good snorkling from the beach on reef just in front of the hotel. Beach is quite private and on week days, you have it all to yourself. There are plenty of good and inexpensive places to eat in walking distance to the hotel but hotel , also, has pretty nice resteurant on site. The surrounding area connects to Ross Medical School , has 24 /7 security , and it is , probably, the safest area to be in Dominica. It felt safe there , even , walking at night. Variety of tours can be arranged at hotel 's desk. Highly recommend this hotel.
You have to have Dominica unlocked cell phone to be able to make local phone calls. Phones in the hotel only allow you to call other hotel's extensions . Upon request , staff at reception desk will allow you to use their phone but , still , it would be nice to be able to make local phone calls from room's phone.
The staff was amazing, friendly and accommodating, arranged a variety of attractions at very good deals, we were upgraded from a normal room to a cottage on the beach at no extra cost, the room was cleaned every day, beautiful setting in a perfect location to see the island, we'll definitely return.
Everything was perfect
What I like the most was the very helpful staff at the front fest very pleasant. Because of him I might return
The experience in the restaurant was poor.
1. THE BEACH!! Wow what a great location... the beach is beautiful, tranquil and well kept. You can sit out on a jetty on the sea and take in the views; the water is crystal clear - beautiful! 2. The fact that it is near the university also meant that there are shops near by \walking distance) where you can pick up supplies (a local market of stalls; a supermarket complex; restaurants, takeaways and a launderette). 3. The free WIFI connection is great and you can get a good signal; even in the bar/restaurant. The studio includes a TV with some good channels. 4. The studio that where we stayed was very comfortable and clean - the cleaners were so friendly and courteous. 5. The breakfast menu is great - from 'Continental' to 'Full English' to the 'Dominican eye-opener' and much more... yum! The reception staff are really polite and informative. They really make you feel welcome and generally the staff always say a 'good morning' or 'hello' to you. 6. They offer great activities such as sailing, canoeing, spa treatments plus diving and whale spotting at their sister hotel 'The Anchorage Hotel'; booking through PBH is simple. 7. The grounds to the hotel are beautiful and are kept really well; view from our balcony was gorgeous and you see a variety of different birds and iguanas and other lizards hobbling around the grounds.
1. Some of the staff let the team down; first impressions were not good at the security gate where our cab pulled up to the gate and the security person could not be bothered to get up and enquire or open the gate for us - our cab driver had to ask them if something was the matter... and they really were rude (dragging there feet when walking up to us... kissing their teeth - not impressive to say the least). 2. Some of the bar and restaurant staff can be a bit stand offish in their attitude towards you. They say that the restaurant closes at 23:00 so ordering at 21:30 seems to irritate some of the staff (again the attitude in some comes across). 3. The restaurant does not have the option of taking food away to your studio room should you wish to do so. 4. The studio room could have a couple of more basic supplies in the kitchen section e.g. it had 2 glasses, 2 plates and 2 folks - BUT only had 1 knife and 1 bowl... NO cups and a second knife and bowl; no spoons. It has a microwave and a fridge with a sink which is good but it would of been nice to have a toaster. 5. It's great that the studio has an air conditioner however it works best when the windows are closed HOWEVER the windows are permanently open and you can not reach the lock at the top to undo to release the window to bring it down to close (an there is no chair you can stand on). You would have to keep ringing down to the front desk for assistance; in the end you just don't bother so just leave the aircon' on and hope for the best! The self - catering cottages sound better.
The staff of the hotel is friendly. The hotel it self is right on the nice beach and the transport to everywhere is easy although the closes stores and restaurants are in walking distance
Kitchenet virtually non existent. There was no kitchenware at all when we arrived. After asking for 2 days straight to get some kitchenware we got a pot, butter knifes, forks, mugs and spoons, we didn't even get cutting knife,can opener and some necesary stuff to prepare a basic meal. If the hotel is selling for higher price per night due to kitchenette it is expected to be fully equiped. It's funny that they expect tourist to bring along pots and pans and cutlery...BIG Minus! Although the room is clean, it needs al lot of refurbishing. All the furniture is old and dark, the ac is barely working(it would need gas- refilling), so it needs to be on all the time and set to lowest temp and high fan to provide some effect. Bathroom is very poorly maintained, the shower was leaking, the sink was miniature with two pipes (very hot or very cold water) with no plug. We didn't feel very safe leaving our stuff in the room while the entrance door are barely a door (old and damaged, big hole at the bottom), we got a feeling that even child would be able to break the lock. For two persons there was only one wooden chair in the room and one plastic one on the balcony (where and how would we have proper sitting or meal?), no table on balcony. (We asked for additional chair and table but we didn't get it - but many other balconies had 3 or 4 chairs and not only one table). At the restaurant we didn't try the food as we were dissapointed that all they had to offer in a very advertised happy hour (with cocktails etc.) was one brand of beer. So bottom line: Been there, done that, never again until renovation ;)
I liked it was very close to the Med. School RossU and its perfect for any visit to the school.
Bed aint that good, tho i dont complain much. There was no Safe in our room where i could leave my passport secure. AC has been tempered to just stay on LOW power, you can only change the Temp.
This was our second visit and we were happy to return.
The kitchenette had no pots or pans, crockery or cutlery, as it had on our prevous visit. Staff suppled crockery and cutlery when asked ,but no pans so we were unable to cook. I dont feel the aprtments should be advertised with a kitchenette unless they are fully equipped for self catering.
did not like anything that place is a total ripoff
everything especialy wasting my money. The bathroom shower was leaking the place is just not worth it
Everything! It was a fantastic stay, the staff was very helpful and sweet, especially our housekeeper Blanche :) The hotel upgraded our stay, and our cottage was situated on a beautiful beach coast (Picard Beach). Sea was always calm, clean, could see lots of different birds, iguanas and lizards. Our cottage included free wifi, TV with sattellite channels, and an equipped kitchen. We could cook our own food, and the grocery store was only 2 minutes walk away. We loved it!
Unable to adjust shower water temperature very well, was nice ot have hot water but not easy to regulate, either too hot or cold.
The hotel is in a quiet and relaxing environment, the room is not elaborately furnished but is very comfortable. The staff from every department were very polite and helpful. If you want a clean reasonably priced accommodation choose this location. This is my second visit to this location in as many years. Will go again.
Great service, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were always clean and easy functional. Very relaxing place to stay for vacation, business or otherwise.
The staff was excellent very helpful anything I needed they were right there when I called them. Any questtions were answered right away by the staff. They also put me into beach front cabin wonderful. My daughter was so pleased since she was going to Ross med school there she really got to enjoy it before starting classes and starting her new life there.
