I was looking for a hotel with a friendly relaxed atmosphere where guests would feel comfortable chatting with one another. The Champs did not disappoint ! The owners Lise and Hans are so friendly and down to earth that they sort of instill the same qualities in their guests. So it's kind of like a B&B in that way. But be assured that if you're not interested in mingling, you can also keep to yourselves.

Both the pool area (ah that fabulous wide-screen sunset view!) and the dinner area facilitate meeting other people. We were there for a week and ate dinner there every evening, never being disappointed with the food. Good variety at reasonable prices.

Others have spoken about room 3. It is just perfect if you are 3 people. Could work for parents and 2 kids, but the kids would have to sleep in the same bed. Really nice size, with a huge bathroom. How nice to have more than ample space to store your cosmetics!The flatscreen tv wasn't working at the time, but that's due to the hurricane. We had good wifi and didn't need it. This room also has the best view.

And now the best part : Lise was phenomenal in helping to plan our vacation. Literally every morning she'd give us suggestions of places to go, we'd do them and come back enchanted. And what stories she and Hans have! Just meeting them made our vacation that much better.

With hindsight I think it would have been better to divide our 8 night stay between both the North and the South of Dominca in order to have quicker access to sites in both areas. But the experience at The Champs was so wonderful that I didn't regret a bit staying there the entire time.

Thanks so much Lise and Hans for your generosity and great service ; )
Holly

From Australia, we visited Dominica and needed one night accomodation near Portsmouth. We chose The Champs. Delightful greeting, warm hospitality, great ocean views, delightful dinner and breakfast. What else could you want? Thanks Lis and Hans.

We planned our trip to Dominica in May 2017 and post Hurricane Maria were uncertain regarding the practicality of visiting the island this year. We are pleased that we went ahead with our trip and kept, (and extended), our booking at The Champs. Our room was well appointed and clean with good air conditioning and a good terraced seating area with sea views. Breakfast and dinner were good in the outdoor restaurant and the swimming pool very welcome after a day out. Hans and Lise were very helpful in ensuring that our stay went well. They arranged transfers from the ferry for us, helped us arrange a hire car, suggested excursions and provided local transport, as well as insight into the local response to the hurricane. This assistance helped prepare us for the challenges of difficult driving conditions where roads had not yet been repaired and an expectation that whilst some tourist facilities were now up and running others were still struggling, particularly as power had not yet reached outlying areas.
