Dominica calls itself the "Nature Island of the Caribbean" because of its numerous rivers and streams, hot sulfur springs and boiling lakes, waterfalls, and freshwater lakes. The range of elevation, over 2500 feet above sea level, creates a diverse habitat for flora and fauna. The clear ocean waters provide wonderful experiences for divers and snorkelers too.

Visit Moren Trois Pitons National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Whale watch. Spelunk underwater.

Dominica is where the "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequel was filmed.

This hotel is educating the children of the area by paying tuition for 200 kids. It further supports the local economy by hiring locals to work at the resort and by loaning money to local entrepreneurs.

Part of the composting project includes giving left over food to local farmers to feed their pigs. The rest is used to make compost for use in the resort's gardens.

Wind energy is anticipated to be developed at this hotel by 2008. Solar energy would require too much disturbance of the native vegetation to be practical.

A sustainable approach was taken with this hotel in its development so as to not harm the environment or the local population. It's constructed from reclaimed volcanic stone and wood.


We chose jungle bay because it claimed to be an eco lodge, and we believe in protecting nature. Sadly all we got was the best example of greenwashing, false greeen claims, that I have ever seen!

The place is set in stunning surroundings. But unfotunately the place is doing nothing to protect those surroundings. The locals all say they are being exploited, and the gardens were all being sprayed with chemicals, despite claiming not to use them. There really was nothing eco about the place at all.

The food was average, but the prices were 5 star. The rooms were ok, and the staff are generally friendly enough, although when we complained that the room was not cleaned properly, we were told by the ownwer that there was nothing he could do because the cleaner had gone home.

Speaking of staff: they were not treated fairly. From being paid only minimum wage, unlike employees at other hotels, to having to give their tips to the charity of the owner's and manager's choice, they were given a bad situation. And no locals are in top management positions, only foreigners. To us, an eco hotel also means taking care of the local population, and this hotel fell down on that point as much as it did environmental issues.

We asked to move rooms because the plumbing was making loud noises in the night, and the owner said we would have top pay extra to move. What happened to the peace and tranquility we were promised?

Review this hotel

This website is for you and your fellow green travelers. You can make it more useful by sharing your travel experiences at the different environmentally friendly hotels or eco-lodges you stay in. The more comments and reviews we have on the hotels in the database, the more you and other environmentally conscious travelers have to go on for making decisions.

When you review a hotel, the information we are looking for is what your experience was; how you felt about what you saw and did in regards to the hotel. Did you notice any environmentally sensitive steps taken that aren't covered by either the attributes list or the hotel's website? For example, were the shower curtains fabric rather than plastic, the wastebasket unlined, or did the room smell fresh without having been perfumed? Does the housekeeping staff honor the towel/sheet program? Are Styrofoam products offered at any food establishments connected to the environmentally friendly hotel? We want the good and the bad so other green travelers can make informed decisions.

There are lots of little things that go into making a great experience, and lots of little things that go into making a great green experience. That's what we are looking for in the reviews we receive. All comments and submissions become the property of HealthyStays.com, LLC and may be published.
