Note the closing statement "Stayed June 2015, traveled solo", as well as the name used by the writer. These do not match any guest who stayed at Symes-Zee Villa on any night between June1 and June 9, 2015 (the date of the review). This definitely does not fit any aspect of our villa.

In its own garden on top of a ridge with great views incl. sunset. 10 minutes walk from the WNT but 50 minutes to the trailhead for Boiling Lake. Mostly empty (even no staff), no shop or restaurant around. You can order meals in advance, they'll bring them from Roseau. But this place would really need a kitchen for guests,...

The grounds of Symes-Zee Villa are unbelievable and while we were there they were still improving them. We were the only guests, but our tour organizer had arranged for them to bring food out from their Roseau location for us. It was all delicious and copious. Symes Zee himself is quite a character and, when he took us down to...

If you're looking for a very basic, affordable room high in the mountains but don't really care about comfort, this is your place. The grounds were comparable to a botanical garden with flora and fauna of the island. The room was clean but the bed very thin, hard and uncomfortable. The pillows were ridiculous - I'm not sure who would...

I have been traveling to Dominica for 12 years and have always been extremely happy with my stays at Symes Zee's guest house. Symes Zee and his staff are ALWAYS helpful and accommodating.

I enjoyed every bit of my stay at Symes Zee villa. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place to be. There were Majestic views from every vantage point that included the Roseau valley, Caribbean Sea, dormant volcanic mountains, and waterfalls. It is something indescribable. The hotel is perched on the slops of a Mountain. I felt like...
