Fodor's Expert Review Papillote Wilderness Retreat
Trafalgar Falls Rd., Trafalgar, St. George, Dominica
Luxuriant vegetation abounds in this retreat's 4 acres of gardens. An array of flowers adorn its four secluded mineral pools and stone sculptures. Situated in the middle of a tropical forest, this welcoming destination is also family-friendly. Its rooms are pretty basic, but they're also quite comfortable. Two of the larger rooms have kitchenettes. The river beckons you to take a dip, and the 125-foot Trafalgar Falls are a short hike from your room. The hotel's terrace-style Rainforest Restaurant and Bar serves excellent local cuisine and also has spectacular mountain and valley views. Recently, Wi-Fi has been added and upgrades have been made to the hotel's garden trails. In 2015, a villa that sleeps eight—perfect for families—was finished. M.A.P. plan available.
