My family and I recently booked a trip to St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands via Travelocity. We selected the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort as this was one of only a few all inclusive resort options that Travelocity had to offer. Ironically enough, Travelocity rates this property as a "3 star" property, (one can go onto the Travelocity website and see... More

Bolongo Bay is a dirty, rundown resort, which is located next to the city dump for the entire island of St. Thomas. Trash trucks can be heard regularly, as the resort is right next to a major highway. It should not even be called a resort, because there is nothing beautiful about it and has no amenitites. The photos of... More

We just returned from our honeymoon in St. Thomas, and loved Bolongo Bay Beach Resort. We loved that unlike its larger, more crowded competitors, it has only 65 rooms, all of which face the water. It is also family-owned and operated, which adds a certain charm to it. We went with their all-inclusive option, which is definitely the way to... More

We stayed at Bolongo for three days and wished we had booked it for longer! Our room (113) was about 50 steps from the beach. The Sunset Cruise was awesome and the meals were great too. We enjoyed Iggies, one night there was live music and it was great fun! We did the all inclusive and felt pretty decadent, I... More

This was my our first visit to the Islands. It was the perfect vacation. There was not one thing about the vacation and especially the resort that we would have changed. All of the employees were especially friendly and helpful. They made us feel that we were very important to them. This includes ALL the staff from the housekeeping crew... More

We stayed at Bolongo Bay from July 7 - July 13. We had such a wonderful time that we are planning a return trip in December. The hotel was small and very casual, which is what we prefer to the more bigger hotels. The food at Iggies was great as well as the drinks. The staff was very pleasant and... More

The resort was very beautiful and the staff were exceptionally friendly. Both of the restaurants were excellent, and I would recommend getting the all-inclusive package. The only thing I didn't care for much was that beach was just alright. Nothing too special. We went for our honeymoon and we would go back for sure!

From the minute we arrived we were greeted with welcomes and smiles!! We did the all-inclusive and let me recommend it! Never in all of our travels have we been made to feel more at home. We've done Hawaii & Mexico and this was our 3rd trip to St. Thomas, 1st trip to Bolongo Bay Beach Club and we would... More

The staff at Bolongo couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. This was our first time there, a family of four with two teens, and we all enjoyed the hospitality, the activities, the food and the sincere welcome evinced by everyone there. We'd go back in a flash!
