"Loved the peace and quiet atmosphere, almost feeling like you had all the hillside to yourself - and yet accessing town activities or nearby beach is quite easy. Food and staff were great. Would absolutely return."


"I cannot rave enough about the food. Both breakfast and dinner were multiple course meals including homemade desserts such as passionfruit sorbet, and fresh fruit grown on the property. I cannot recommend this place enough!"

"Hosts Kate and Patrick have built a truly unique paradise into the beautiful little corner of the world that is Manicou River."

"The bed was comfortable, the shower hot, the staff helpful, and the food fabulous"


"First impressions were how large and calm and elegant it was, a huge wooden room with a well equipped kitchen, a big long table, a very comfortable bed with beautiful linen, hammocks, interesting books, and behind a curtain a stylish bathroom with rainwater shower and everything infused with the scent of homegrown bay oil"


"Your search is over for a place to stay. Book here, you won’t

regret it."


"Down to the homemade soap, Manicou does eco-friendly right."    


"The open rooms look out on the valley and the bay and have wonderful cool breezes at all times."


"A week at Manicou River is too short, where you are treated to an exquisite paradise in the mountains and a true off-the-grid experience."  


"We awoke on the hilltop, over-looking the gorgeous bay, with fresh breezes and birds singing in our open-air cottage The most magnificent view you can imagine, what a great way to wake up in the morning! The hammock is lovely to watch the stars at night. An ideal place to relax."


"We loved the open air aspect, with the breezes and night sounds of crickets and frogs. Great for sleeping! Minimal insects despite the open air aspect. If you're looking for a quite place feeling like you're staying in the middle of nature, book a cottage at Manicou river."


"The cottage was totally made from wood and with a very comfortable bed with fresh nicely smelling linen."  


"Views that would cost $1000 at a different hotel!"


"As a couple who like to do our bit for the environment but without compromising too much on luxury touches on a holiday, this place was the perfect choice."


"Manicou river resort is a secluded amazing gem that I'm reluctant to tell the world about because I want to keep it all to myself."


"When you stay here, you are in great hands. No detail remained untouched. We have stayed in many places along our travels and this is absolutely one of the best."


"When I think back to our holiday on stunning Dominica, the first place that usually comes into my mind, is Manicou."


"I couldn't imagine a more tastefully finished treehouse, with a more perfect view. Our young children loved the lizards & hermit crabs, as well as the novelty of living in a treehouse."


"Oh, and the bed + linens are super comfortable!"


“Breathtaking views, perfect cabin, wonderful staff, magical.”


"It felt like every detail was planned with thoughtfulness and good intention."


"The Manicou River cabins are so clean and remarkably well-appointed - from the kitchens (loved all the supplies and coffee maker!), to the high quality and clean bedding, the bathroom linens and bay soaps, etc"


"I can't think of a time i've felt more relaxed and genuinely 'off-grid' than our time here."


"We will definitely be going back to Dominica, and we will definitely be staying at Manicou River."
