    Congratulations to all the recipients. We may be one of the smaller Caribbean islands, however, we’ve got some wonderful hotels/guest houses and the people are so friendly. With that said, the government should develop/implement activities for the visitors to stay longer since our hotels are already up to standard.

    Atlantique resort isn’t included…i am quiet surprised.

      Guests ultimately vote with their pocket book. I fyou are not on the list go and figure out yourself first why not, before running to govt. for a hand out.

      Carcon, this is not DNO’s survey. They only report Triadvisor’s findings. Nothing to do with DNO!

    As a person from Marigot I am very happy that PAGUA BAY got the award it shows that even the smallest units can come out smelling like a rose, we congratulate all who got the awards and thank them for making Dominica and Dominican very proud. I didn’t see ROSALIE BAY but I know their time will come.

    All the hotels with “Bay” at the end of their names are successes. Jungle, Secret, Rosalie and Pagua. All of these are what are seen as “high end” boutique hotels. I think many of our guest houses and “hotels” here fail because they charge too much for too little. Their facilities still operate like it is the 1980’s. Many hotleiers design their facilities and amenities for themselves it seems. from the bed sheets and covers to the size of the rooms and types of furniture and lighting fixtures are all important. the cottages at Jungle Bay are nothing special in reality. not even telephones or tv in the rooms, but they well constructed, decorated in simple elegance and offer an experience in quaint nature cobined with the excellent customer service where tourist will gladly pay over US$300 a night. Same for the others. Many so called hoteliers here just think if they build it people will come. Not the case. It is better to start with 5 well thought out rooms than 40 that are not.

      That is a common mistake, to think that guests accept the standards we ourselves tolerate. Nobody is obliged to stay at your place hoteliers. Has any of you even visited the places listed to see what makes them sell, and at higher prices than yours. Nobody knows everything all the time….except if you are “the facts” of course.

    Congrats goes out to those who have been awarded. It is not easy to run a hotel day in day out. However with the right staff and management it is and it is evident based on the good reviews that these hotels get on a daily basis. Dominica does not have big name hotels such as four seasons but what we have works for us. They provide excellent service to each and every guest that comes in! Kudos to you guys once again for putting Dominica on the map. Great Job

    I’m surprised not to see Rosalie Bay in these listings. Still, congratulations are in order for all those mentioned. It really casts a positive light on Dominica and confirms, certainly to me, that one does not necessarily have to be cheap to compete successfully in the tourism market. Look carefully at the formulae these successful entrepreneurs have developed and we may all learn something. Well done.
