A great little inn on a hill with gorgeous views and wonderfully friendly staff (who will do anything for you). Delicious breakfasts. They were really helpful in getting us to diving class and helping with a flat tire (beware drivers in Dominica the road from the airport can be a bit challenging for a US city driver)
