Great Tropical Honeymoon Vacation
My husband and I just spent a week in St. Thomas at the Bolongo Bay Resort. We had a wonderful time and will def be going back soon. If you are looking for an authentic caribbean vacation without the passport Bolongo is the way to go. Also, you HAVE to get the all-inclusive though, I don't think it would have been worth it to pay for everything seperately (in my opinion). It's an island, they are literally on island time, be patient, there is plenty of beauty to take in while you wait for your food/drinks. The room was pretty nice and basically what we were expecting, we got an ocean view (rm:127) and we were happy with everything. The shower was a little small, a lil hard to shave your legs, but you can work it out. Also, the a/c unit can be a little loud but my husband's snoring was much louder and my earplugs took care of both things. I was just grateful to have a/c and a very comfortable bed to sleep in. I'm happy there was a safe, we felt better not just leaving our valuables (credit cards, etc) just sitting out in the open. We had plenty of room, there was a sitting area in our room and one on the balconey. There was a little kitchen area with a sink and little fridge, which came in handy. Don't leave candy or open drinks out all nite, you will get little ants (we learned that the hard way and had a few ants but wiped them away and knew better next time). But, this is an island, if you leave stuff like that out and open it can happen, here or anywhere. The water activities that were offered by Bolongo were by far the best around. We saw more sea life and turtles at the beach on Bolongo for FREE than we did on the excursion that we paid for off the resort...
The food was very good, get the bananas foster pancakes, they are amazing. We ate and drank like kings for a week and can't wait to go back. Also, try the Eco Tours excursions, ours was awesome. We went kayaking, hiking and snorkeling. We aren't very outdoorsey either so you don't have to be in great shape or be super active on the weekends to enjoy this excursion.
If you want some place all marble and corporate with minimum caribbean authencity stay at the Marriott down the street (they don't offer free water bikes, paddle boats, hobie rides and snorkeling tho). We thought the Marriott would've been a better choice cause it was "nicer" but Bolongo was beautiful and had all the little extra amenities that we were looking for to actually enjoy the island, not just look at it...
Nice room with great view. Clean and Comfortable. Amazing options for relaxing or enjoying the water activities. Very helpful making excursions. All around excellent service from bars to restaurants. Good food options. Hope to return again soon.

Excellent St. Thomas Vacation
We have been to St Thomas multiple times in the last few decades, and stayed twice at Bolongo Bay. I can honestly say that Bolongo has been the best experience we've had at a St Thomas all-inclusive resort. The food is excellent, and the service of the staff is very good. Being family owned, they seem to take great pride in service (which is far above what is considered normal on this island - we've had very lousy service and food at other St Thomas resorts).
The rooms are adequate. They are not the nicest or most modern. However, each room has beautiful ocean views with individual porches/terraces, a/c, and television. Ours had a nice kitchenette with sink, dishes, fridge and microwave.
The grounds are pretty and well kept with a large beach, plenty of beach chairs, catamarans, kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, a dive shop (with organized dives available), beach bar, and pool bar.
Both times we've come here, we had a great experience. The staff and guests are very friendly and there are lots of things to do. My wife and I will definitely stay here again, and I would recommend it to my friends.

Beautiful Beach Resort
The service and the view were amazing from the moment we arrived at the resort until the time we left. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The view was beautiful. There were so many activities you could do, or just sit and relax on your balcony enjoying the view. The food at the Lobster Grille and Iggies was wonderful, with many choices each day. It was great to have live music at Iggies every night so you never had to leave the resort for entertainment. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who appreciates a more relaxed atmosphere. We could literally walk off our balcony and be on the sand in 10 steps, the ocean in 20 steps.

Does Bolongo Bay have king size rooms?1 answer
2 years, 27 months ago
The "Value Room" category comes with either 1 king size bed or 2 double beds. Requests for bedding can be made, however they are never guaranteed.
What type of alcoholic drinks are included?2 answers
The description lists wine and champagne by the glass. Is this all that is included? Beer? Mixed or frozen drinks? Liquor?
2 years, 26 months ago
All alcoholic drinks are included, including beer, mixed, frozen and those made with house liquor. Wine and champagne by the glass is also included. There may be a surcharge for premium brand liquors and for wine and champagne by the bottle.
Most alcoholic drinks are included. Champagne, wine, beer (very good selection including US domestics), mixed and frozen drinks and liquor (including popular stuff like Jager, Fireball, Jack, Jim, etc). Only top shelf liquor was excluded and they would tell you ahead of time if you would have to pay for it.
DO YOU HAVE LONGER STAYS 7DAYS1 answer
2 years, 26 months ago
Yes! You may customize your package based on availability. Certain special offers have a 3-5 night minimum stay required for travel but you are welcome to increase the nights when selecting your check in and check out dates. Please call our office if you have any trouble!
What are the restrictions on the restaurants on the all- inclusive meal plan?3 answers
2 years, 25 months ago
The restrictions on restaurants included in meal plans are usually placed upon specific items (such as fine cuts of beef or lobster, crab, etc). Bottles of wine are usually exempt as well, but we always recommend speaking with the resort directly to confirm what you will and may be available for a surcharge.
The only things not covered with the all-inclusive were bottles of water (tap with ice was included), and there was a special each night at the Lobster Grill that had an upcharge. It was well worth the extra money for the all-inclusive
Very few restrictions and they would tell you ahead of time. Almost anything you wanted from the menu was included.
Does it have a swim up bar2 answers

According to the information listed below, this resort does have a swim up bar.
Yes there is a swim up bar, but no underwater bar stools.
Are there plenty of simple food choices with the dining? Like Hamburgers?2 answers

Iggies Beach Bar and Grill
Type: Light fare
Hours: Daily, 11am-11pm
Description: A laid back bar that serves Caribbean and American fare for lunch, dinner and late-night snacks.
There are two restaurants at the resort. One offers fine dining (still casual attire) and the other is a beach bar/restaurant with simple choices. Both had very good food. The beach bar was better for lunch or a more relaxed dinner. The other restaurant had a nice breakfast buffet and a quiet sit-down dinner atmosphere (dinner there takes 1.5 to 2 hours). I would recommend going all-inclusive as the food and drinks are VERY expensive. Even at lunch with a few drinks, we would spend 50 to 75 dollars.
Hope to arrive late next month2 answers

Bolongo Bay Beach Resort All Inclusive
Bolongo Bay Beach Resort: Discover A Hidden Caribbean Treasure
Going on vacation is all about having fun. So lose yourself in the Caribbean
vibe at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort. Family owned and operated since 1974 by the
Doumengs, the resort's small, friendly atmosphere offers a vacation that seems like home. We're not the only ones who think the Doumengs are doing it right. Richard Doumeng, Managing Director, was recently awarded the "Golden Conch" Caribbean Hotelier of the Year Award by the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association. Get lost in the all-inclusive paradise at Bolongo Bay.
Located on a 1,000-ft stretch of white sand, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort redefines the word "beachfront." Kick back on a lounge chair and watch the kids swim, or check out the freshwater pool for rum punch at the swim-up bar. After you've worked up an appetite, two open-air restaurants draw you in: lobster specialties are a hit at The Lobster Grille, and we hear conch fritters at Iggies Beach Bar and Grill are delish. Wednesday nights, Iggies hosts the wild Carnival Extravaganza, with steel-pan tunes and a limbo show, or you catch a cab to Charlotte Amalie for more action.
Whether you're hanging out at the beach or seeing the sights, there are tons of things to do during the day. Start a game of beach volleyball, or challenge the kids to paddleboat races. Try parasailing, or book a snorkel or scuba excursion to see the underwater world. Day trips to nearby St. John, St.
Croix and the British Virgin Islands are popular, but St. Thomas also has great appeal. Paradise Point has unforgettable views. The shoreline is beautiful from Magens Bay. And kids love feeding stingrays at Coral World.
Book an appointment with the massage therapist after a long day to unwind. Since Bolongo Bay is smaller and intimate, all 64 rooms are beachfront, so you can kick back and enjoy the Caribbean from the privacy of your balcony. Families don't have to navigate any pesky stairs with young children in the
Beachfront Room, and if you're traveling on a budget, the Value Room is just right.
