Conveniently located in Roseau, Fort Young Hotel offers the perfect balance of city life and proximity to the island’s natural wonders. Housed in a historic fort, each of the hotel’s 73 oceanfront rooms features a warm, neutral palette; either one king-sized or two double beds; a balcony; and large windows that look out onto the crashing waves. Of the three restaurants Palisades Restaurant fuses international classics with the flavors of Dominica, Warner’s Bar offers elegant cocktails and their signature rum punch alongside any item from the Palisades menu, and Bala’s Bar is a casual café perfect for quick bites. The hotel also offers room service, so any of the food can be enjoyed from the comfort of your picturesque balcony or terrace. Zemi Spa offers a revitalizing treatment menu designed to invigorate the body and spirit. Visit the spa for manicures, pedicures and a range of massages, or select a mobile massage and a masseuse will come to you for a relaxing in-room session.

How to Get There
100 Stars goes to the Palisades Restaurant! It was a great experience. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Hats off to the staff. We look forward to having dinner with you all again. Thank you Fort Young 🙂
The Fort Young Hotel is still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Maria, but this does not detract from the comfort and welcome offered. The rooms are large, clean, well kept and with a balcony overlooking the ocean with very good views of other parts of the island. What stands out is the welcome from the staff where nothing is too much trouble. Fort Young is well situated near the ferry terminal and town centre.
You really don't have many options for business travel in Roseau so book early. Great rooms, lovely restaurants. Service is trying. The gym is still being fixed and there's no business center. But there is a gym nearby. Conference calls can be a problem... Lovely pool. They can service it a bit better but hey. The activtieis desk can also improve but all in all it's a spectacular hotel with amazing views from each room and people are trying to do their best. Will be staying there again (not that there are other options in town).
We have stayed at Fort Young Hotel many times over many years. We have always had a great time, and feel very welcome when we are there. Happy to see the progress and work on the rooms being rebuilt after the hurricane. Love the new refurbished dining room- beautiful ambience and modern. We were blown away!!
Stayed here for 2 nights. The service is great, my room was clean and had a great view of sunsets (cruise ships leave just before sunset), dinner selections were good, and even though the bar is small, the bartender and drinks were great. The nearby pier is walkable and contains lots of shopping options while cruise ships are docked.
