“Lovely Spot!”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Lovely spot to come home to after a day exploring the Roseau River Valley. Perfectly located for great hikes, beautiful waterfalls, hot springs, snorkeling and day trips. Breakfasts and dinners were the best we had on the island and well worth it. Falling asleep to the sounds of the rain forest--a truly magical experience. Iris, Liz, and Richard were so helpful, answering all our questions and we really enjoyed the informal conversations with them and other guests around the dinner table. And our room was so comfy and cozy it was hard to leave it.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite has the best double swing. A very cozy spot whether you're a newley wed or m...

WE only got to visit the cottages as they were full and we had to stay other places, but we did the canyoning with Richard and Jeffery. AMAZING time. It was the best thing we did. Then Liz took us to the cottages and showed us everything, we had cocoa muffins, THE BEST and cocoa tea. She did not rush us , spend the afternoon with us. We so wish we could stay there next time. This place is awesome and the people are Kind and so full of life and joy for all. THANKS

Room Tip: They all looked GREAT.

I spent a week at Cocoa Cottages on my own in January and loved it. This is the anti-hotel - no keycards, no anonymity, no need to lock your door at night... guests and staff are refreshingly real and friendly. The owner Iris is amazing and ever accessible for information on the island or just good conversation. The rooms are beautiful with a handmade feel, very creative, colorful and clean. Plus everywhere you are surrounded by rainforest! I stayed in the "Patchouli Room" which stands alone and even has its own front porch. The home cooked meals here are better than anything I found in town - all locally sourced ingredients and enjoyed around a roundtable (repurposed from old cable spools and barrels!) with fellow travelers. There is even homemade chocolate made right on the property - experience Willie Wonka magic if you're lucky enough to poke your nose into the chocolate room! Of course you don't want to spend all day in your room, so it's also nice that the cottages are located in the center of popular island activities. (My personal favorite was Extreme Dominica Canyoning, which is right next door!) If you choose to spend your mornings and evenings here, you and your soul will be well fed.

my wife and i just spent a week at cocoa cottages to celebrate my 60th birthday- our room was just beautiful- wood and light and color- surrounded by a lush jungle of all the plants you have in vases at home except here they grow to 40 feet on their own- at night we fell asleep with the shutters open listening to the sounds of the crickets and tree frogs occasionally broken up by a huge downpour of rain on the tin roof that would last for a few minutes- we'd awaken to morning light and the smell of good coffee- breakfast was always wonderful- a bowl of local fresh fruit- papaya, star fruit, orange/ grapefruit, watermelon, pineapple- eggs, local bread with freshly made jams- we'd talk with the morning cook, Joan, who has spent years on the island- learning about the culture -our days were spent on hikes in the jungle to lakes/ waterfalls/ hot springs- twice we went snorkeling at Champagne Beach- a lovely place to spend a day- food, tables, view, and you can rent equipment cheap-iris would help us plan our day adventure and arrange for a guide if needed-- Cocoa cottages is an excellent base from which to make great day forays into the natural beauty of the southern part of the island- in the evening we often ate at Cocoa Cottages with Iris who would prepare a splendid meal from local produce= always beautifully arranged- in the evening we'd talk of our day or sometimes play music- if you play jazz piano you will make Iris very happy- a wonderful peaceful refuge
