    We spent two weeks in Dominica, the first of which was spent in Manicou River, at the northwest tip of the island near Portsmouth and our stay there was the highlight of the trip. As the other reviews state, Manicou River is not the easiest...More

    What an incredible experience! Every photo you see here is accurate, but still does not do Manicou River justice! It is absolutely beautiful and truly a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience. You will have little frogs, lizards, and birds milling about and will hear the life of the...More

    Hi Lizzie, Thanks so much for the great review. This level of detail really helps others to understand the Manicou River experience. To clarify regarding breakfast, we do serve both full and continental breakfast. The reason it's not included in the standard rate is because...More

    On the northwest coast of the island, Manicou River was a bit of a splurge (cottages are $220-$265/nt with a 3-night minimum), but for the last leg of our trip, we knew we wanted to treat ourselves. Like many Dominican destinations, arrival at Manicou is...More

    Nothing substantiates Dominica’s renown as “The Nature Island” better than the Manicou River boutique eco-lodge. We stayed there recently, our second visit, and enjoyed it just as much this time as last, which is to say enormously. The rooms are beautifully appointed in a natural...More

    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.
