I stayed at Bolongo a few times over 20 years ago so I was curious about what I would find. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! Now, if you're looking for the Ritz, it's down the road. Commercial resorts are everywhere but there is a unique quaintness about a family owned resort. Yes, the buildings might be more dated than others but I wasn't there to look at the buildings or room, my priority is the beach and the activities that are included in your stay. Sailing the sunfish was a blast, paddle boarding was my fun exercise each day and sailing to St. John for the day was fantastic. I can't begin to describe how wonderful it was to go diving again. And, all this plus more was right outside my room. I had to leave to do the obligatory shopping but just wanted to get back to Bolongo. There are only about 60 rooms on a large beautiful bay. The beach has beautiful tall palm trees with a smattering of hammocks. It was amazing to lay in the hammock with the sound of palm fronds, the ocean and quiet peace.With the rooms on the beach, I didn't have to walk through a lobby which I love. I was impressed how the beach was perfectly maintained. I am tired of beautiful areas being taken over with buildings and crowds. There was plenty of room to relax on the beach and be alone but then if I wanted to socialize, it was there. Iggies on the beach is a fun, tasty and convenient bar and restaurant that locals frequent. Then going to the Lobster Grill for a totally different menu and atmosphere and hanging at the pool bar was great. I am so glad it is still what I remembered with a better beach. I will not be waiting another 20 years to go again!
