My fiance and I just got back from a 4 night 5 day stay at Bolongo Bay. It was wonderful! We had booked transportation with Tropic Tours from the airport to the hotel and they were great. We were greeted with rum punches as soon as we got to the front desk. The staff was so warm and helpful. They took our bags to our room with a smile and asked if everything was ok. The room was neat and clean. The air conditioner worked fine and the view from our beach front room was amazing! As we were settling in, I turned to my boyfriend to ask him a question and found him on his knee proposing! He totally took me by surprise!.....and my ring is BEAUTIFUL!
The food at both Iggies and The Lobster Grille was fabulous. The waitstaff (especially Albert at the Lobster Grille) was friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend doing the all-inclusive because the food, all over the island, is very expensive.
The Beach is beautiful, though there are some rocks so do bring water shoes. The non-motorized water equipment is great and we loved using the floties and just floating around the bay. We did rent a seadoo and, with a guide, took a tour around part of the island.
Our first excursion was the ferry ride from Red Hook to St. John. There we took a tour of the Island and the beaches were gorgeous! The next day we went to Charlotte Amalie to do some shopping. Lots to see there also. The only thing we didn't do was the Heavenly Days catamaran sunset cruise. It was set to go out on Friday and we were leaving on Thursday. The weather for the entire trip was sunny, some clouds here and there, and in the 80's. PERFECT!
If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this isn't it. If you want a true Caribbean Island Resort feel, along with a laid back attitude, then this is the place for you! My only negative was the no-see-ums. Little tiny bugs that bite at night. This was no fault of the hotels, but do bring some Off bug spray, it helps.
Because of the fabulous staff and the beautiful Bolongo Bay secluded Beach resort, we will definitely be back!
