Stayed at this hotel as part of a walking holiday on Dominica and cannot speak highly enough about the whole experience. Mark and his staff really make you feel welcome and it is more like staying in Marks house than a hotel.

“Absolute gem”

All the bedrooms are spacious with wonderful views over the Atlantic Ocean which can be dramatic. Dinner is a set menu although just ask if there is something you don’t like and Mark will provide an alternative. Pre dinner drinks are an opportunity to share the days experiences with other guests and get to know people from around the world.

It’s the small touches that make Beau Rive special. Fresh flowers and local art in every room. Comfortable beds. Island-grown produce featured in every dish served. A big glass of ice-cold, fresh passion fruit juice after a day of hiking. Attentive staff. Thoughtful host (Mark Steele). Friendly house dogs, Florence and Max (and ginger cat, Frederick). Oh, and the best rum spritzer, ever!

With sea and mountain views, the setting is absolutely gorgeous. Colourful gardens are home to equally colourful hummingbirds. It is not uncommon to hear Jaco parrots squawking high in the trees or glimpse them flying overhead. On a clear night, the stars are just incredible here, as we discovered on a very early morning drive to the airport.

Our home away from home in Dominica…

Beau Rive is in an ideal location for exploring the villages, trails and waterfalls on the rugged east coast. In fact, we’ve found many destinations on the island to be within striking distance for a day trip. Mark is always willing to help with planning outings, near and far. We very much enjoyed chatting a bit with local farmers and villagers we met in our travels.

Thank you, Mark, for making us feel as welcome on our 4th visit to Dominica and Beau Rive as our first.
