    We just returned from Manicou. Can't say enough about the location, views, food and hosts. Rooms were everything promised - spacious, clean and open to all the natural beauty that is Dominica. Dinners were enjoyed with an incredible view of the Caribbean Sea and all...More

    Our Manicou River stay was an experience to remember, and hopefully repeat. The accommodation is breathtaking - the cottages are very comfortable, completely off the grid and beautifully built from local material, with wonderful views over the Caribbean Sea and Cabrits National Park.

    The only conceivable reasons that Manicou does not have more excellent reviews are that 1) only three couples stay there at a time and 2) people want to keep the place a secret so that they can have it to themselves. Manicou really lived up...More

    The most gorgeous view with a property to match! The owners, Kate and Patrick, found a little piece of paradise and have made very careful decisions on how to make it accessible to their guests without spoiling it's natural beauty. It felt like every little...More

    My husband and I stayed at Manicou for our honeymoon. It was absolutely AMAZING. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view from the room was breathtaking. We can't wait to come back for a visit, and possibly in the future, move to Dominica.

    Response from Manicou_River | Property representative |
    Hi, thanks for the inquiry. Our cottages are all open-fronted, which means they have no closed wall on the side facing the view. So, no, none of them have air conditioning. Just cool mountain breeze.
