My husband, Jim and I, went to St. Thomas to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Bolongo Bay was definitely the perfect place for us. It did not have the commercial hotel-feel (which was great, but it had the quality service). All of the staff made sure we felt special the whole time we were there. The rooms were clean. The FOOD WAS AWESOME! The additional things included with our package made this vacation the best we have ever taken. I used the paddle board everyday. They also had a variety of beach fun-toys that kept us busy when we had "down-time". One of the beach helpers took my husband and I on a "Hobe-Cat". This is a personalized sail vessel that was so much fun. He took us way out into the ocean and the waves were quite high. It made for such a fun and thrilling ride. They had so many other things to do as well. We snorkeled all over the Island, but several times we snorkeled right in front of Bolongo Bay and we saw two huge sea turtle, a spotted black eagle ray and other smaller sting rays. They had a "booze-snorkel" for all of the guests that was fun to do. My husband was the second one to find a bottle of rum in the ocean! We left it for the woman who cleaned our room. Our trip was made easy and fun with the all-inclusive package. As I mentioned, the two places to choose from to eat were amazing. Iggies was more of a beach hang out but quality food. We ordered what we wanted from the menu and it was all amazing. The drinks, atmosphere and service was great too. Our only small issue from this experience was that several weddings took place over the weekend. One of the weddings had their own music off to the side which cancelled the live band that was scheduled at Iggies. We were disappointed because we didn't have live entertainment that we were looking forward to, however, the atmosphere and food was awesome. The fine dining experience at the Lobster Grill was great for dinner and for breakfast. We sat in the open air seating every morning and it was such a relaxing way to start each day.
The highlight of this entire trip was being able to experience the Heavenly Days Sail Vessel. We went out on it three times. Two were included with our package. A sun-set cruise, a snorkel trip with turtles and then we paid to be with them for a full day sail to St. John.
We also decided to take a taxi from Bolongo to RedHook and then a ferry ride to St. John to experience snorkeling at Trunk Bay. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to.
My husband and I fell in love all over again and we felt so blessed to be in such a beautiful place for our anniversary. Even though we went as a couple, we kept thinking of all the things our kids would be doing if they were with us. As active teens, they would have loved all the beach activities, pool, and excursions around the Island. There were many kids there with their family but at no point was it overwhelming. This place is definitely for all ages.
