A fine hotel, well located, on a great island. Good service, clean room, there is an activities desk where they can organize tours for you. Internet is flawless and many tv channels. pity they didn't restock the shampoo every day.

Very Warm Staff and lovely views of the ocean. When I arrived the Sunday morning, it was way early. Vivianna one of the receptionists, rose to the occasion and tried her utmost best to get a room, especially after a tiring journey thru the luscious valley. She did it and Wowed me with the approach.

As Dominica's premiere hotel, the amenities are only of an "acceptable" level. The wifi kept dropping in our room (206) and the speed was barely tolerable. Meal options for small kids was inadequate. Cereals, etc. Staff were courteous, yet servers were inattentive. On a personal level, I'd like to have a better quality coffee available. Parking availability is minimum.

There is poor choice of hotels in Roseau, and in that circumstances Fort Young is the best. Friendly staff, clean spatious rooms. Beware of the breakfast: many flies surround the counter. Nice gym. Good food at dinner.

We traveled all over Dominica on a relatively tight budget, and the Fort Young Hotel was one of our very best finds in terms of value for money. We loved the historical nature of the hotel, that it is built into the old fort, and loved sitting in the infinity pool looking out at the ocean and the mountains. We... More
