An incredible place in the rainforest, where Staci and Pat take care of the guests. Staci's cooking is the same level as a French chef and Pat took us on a fantastic trip, where he showed us the real Dominica and told good stories. We enjoyed four days in the rainforest and got a lifetime experience. Thank you Staci and...

If you want nature and good experiences go to Roots. If you want swimming pools and colored drinks do not go to Roots. It would be a shame to get to Roots just to have a bed to sleep in between trips you have planned on amazing Dominica. Roots deserve that you book an extra day where you just enjoy...

I arrived in Dominica after staying on quite a few other Caribbean islands and I then continued onto Antigua. I can say that Dominica stands out as the most amazing experience of the trip and this is simply due to our hosts Pat and Staci and the setting of Roots Jungle Retreat! From the minute we started up the road...

For my first trip to the Caribbean, my wife and I chose these open-air huts high up in the rain forest on the largely-undeveloped Atlantic side of this small island nation. We went there Christmas week for our 25th wedding anniversary. We took our kids, aged 15 and 20, and her 81-year-old father. We hiked in upland jungle, swam in...

My wife and I stayed with you in March, 2012. This was our first time in Dominica, and for that matter, the entire Carribean. What an introduction it was! The accomadation, Staci's food (especially the pizza and banana pancakes), and Pat's entertainment & hiking skills were fantastic. Staci & Pat, you will never be forgotten. We hope to return and...

This place is absolutely magical. First off, everyone has spoken highly of Staci's cooking. And they're right. It's great. Also, make sure you take a day trip with Pat. We spent the better part of the day doing the Wavine Cyrique trail and I'd recommend anyone staying at Roots to ask Pat and Staci about this trip. And if you...

From the moment we arrived, Staci and her crew treated us like absolute royalty. The wooden bungalows were cosy, clean, and fully-stocked. The hot water shower was such a bonus, although showering under the waterfall was an experience: one I would recommend to any visitor. Listening to the river every night, surrounded by stars and moonlight, was simply magical. As...

I was instantly incredibly impressed by Pat and Staci's Jungle retreat. They built the most beautiful, exotic, relaxing cabins and everything is so well taken care of. We instantly felt at home. Staci cooked us some of the best home-cooked meals of my life and we spent the rest of the night sharing stories and laughing. The days were filled...

We spent 10 days in Dominica in March, and stayed the entire time at Roots Jungle Retreat. It was a fantastic experience and the trip of a lifetime.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Leave your everyday-world behind and join us in the magical jungle of Dominica. An untouched paradise where the air is clean, the water is fresh and the rainforest bursting with life. Right in the middle of it all you will find Roots Jungle Retreat. The perfect getaway for a natural, fun holiday, voted # 1 on Trip Advisor for the past year. Switch off your blackberry and experience the jungle sounds, the parrots and the fireflies, the refreshing water of the Bamboo river, and the beautiful organic food from our own jungle garden. We are 100% off the grid and eco-friendly. You will sleep in huts built by local Kalinago-Indians, with very comfortable bedding, as you need your rest after a day of fun. There are a million things you can do, but the great thing about Roots is that it’s also perfect for doing nothing at all. We are located next to the gorgeous Bamboo river and have our own swimming hole and little waterfall. You could just spend the whole day on the sundeck by the river reading a book. And we even have our own jungle style spa. We have built an Indian sweat hut for a nice detoxing experience. First you heat up until you start to sweat heavily, than you simply cool off in the river. Great for blood circulation and the immune system. But even more important: a great way to revive. More active visitors love to hike up the river. Further up on the mountain there is a bigger waterfall that is not reachable by road. You’ll have this magnificent place all to yourself! ... more   less
