I just got back from a week in Dominica - definitely one of my favorite destinations! Although I spent most of my time in Roseau, my last two nights were at Roots Jungle Retreat - and they were amazing. I was traveling solo and Staci and Pat made me feel super welcome. As a solo traveler, I thought I might...

I live in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands and my wife & I just spent 5 amazing days in Dominica - the Nature Island. What a difference a few hundred miles can make! Dominica is a wonderfully unique and special place, unlike anywhere I have ever been. What made our experience especially outstanding was our stay at Roots...

We were attracted by our travel book, where it says "Before you die, spend some time in Dominica, one of the least developed and most unusual islands in the region". Although we had only four days we came home totally relaxed with overwelming impressions. The Island is a jewel, which were brought closer to us by wonderful and welcoming Staci...

There is no vacation spot better than Roots Jungle Retreat!!! Along with the endless hiking, waterfalls, snorkeling/diving, gourmet food and underwater expertise by Staci, hilarious stories and mad chauffeur skills by Pat, Dominican culture, and the gorgeous, lush nature all around you is a VERY safe country and vacation!!! Dominicans cannot afford guns so the crime rate is EXTREMELY low....

Quick summary: Roots is a beautiful, off-the-grid, resort in the heart of the rain forest with amazing food. It's in a great location to see the whole island. However, if you are looking for a vacation where you lay on the beach and have drinks brought to you all day, this is may not be the location for you. More...

A great escape hidden in the Dominican jungle. Fantastic hosts (Staci & Pat), remarkable food (magic), beautiful scenery, remote location (15 min 4x4 from main road), great excursions, ...: authentic and honest.

Roots was everything I hoped and more!! Evryday I thought I had seen the best of the island, Pat would top it with another great hidden treasure. The food is amazing and well surpassed my expectations for an off the grid ecolodge. My wife and I will never forget this amazing adventure.

There aren’t enough stars on this website to accurately depict how much we enjoyed our stay at Roots Jungle Retreat and our whole Dominica vacation experience.

I can honestly say there aren't enough positive adjectives to describe the wonder you will experience at Roots Jungle Retreat! If you are looking for a small piece of paradise, you will certainly find it here. From the amazing rainforest sights and sounds to the fantastic freshly cooked meals, courtesy of Staci, this was a vacation nothing short of magnificent!...

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
