Champs staff interview part 1 – Tamara

Champs staff interview part 1 – Tamara

Name: Tamara

Role: Breakfast and morning tasks as required. It’s a small hotel where we have to be flexible.

Tamara was given no warning of the interview and I hadn’t met her before so she was a little reserved at first but opened up easily and seemed very friendly and happy to talk to me.

How long have you worked here? Since December 3rd 2018

What’s your favourite item on the food menu? Waffles, but I don’t usually have breakfast at The Champs, I have oatmeal at home before I head to work, starting at 7am. I usually finish at 2 or 3pm.

How far away do you live? 25 mins walk mostly up the hill on the way, just behind IGA Supermarket in Picard. Of course after a day at work it’s a less tiring walk downhill to get home.

Where’s your favourite spot in Dominica? My home village is Cottage where I go and watch them play rounders, I used to play too but can’t really join in and practice because live here. Cottage is just north of Toucari Bay, so by public transport would take far too long to get to us on a regular basis reliably.

What are your hobbies? I make candies like ginger and peppermints and sell them at family and friend’s shop.  I also make sorrel jam which is available at The Champs.

Breakfast and lunch breads are all made by Tamara as well as apple pie.

Pardon our Mess – Hotel the Champs is Growing

Pardon our Mess – Hotel the Champs is Growing

If you visit today, everything may not be in its expected place and we apologize for any mess.

Following the passage of Hurricane Maria in 2017, Hotel the Champs needed to regroup, so we created a plan to come back better (and bigger).  We relocated the restaurant and bar and rebuilt our jacuzzi and pool deck.  These changes left us with open spaces and a new vision for the future of The Champs was born.

The Champs Green Makeover: The Green Resilience Project


Future Location of Rooms #6 & #7

Earlier in 2019, as part of our “green makeover”, we installed our solar panels and work began on reinforcing the foundations where the jacuzzi and bar were previously.

We intend to add two new Superior XL rooms on the middle level and build an extended stay apartment at the roadside level.  The Superior XL rooms should be completed by Winter 2020.

Currently, we have halted all construction work through the 2019/20 high season to ensure there is no discomfort for our guests. And rest assured nothing affects our five-star rated customer service.


Finishing the details for the Poolside Bar

A new addition that guests will get to experience this season at the renovated pool deck is a mini poolside bar, which will be stocked with beers, sodas, and other canned or bottled beverages to enjoy while lounging at the pool.






We continue to welcome our guests and look forward to offering that signature Champs service to larger groups when these new rooms open in 2020.
