THIS POST WILL TELL YOU EVERY THING YOU WANT OR NEED TO KNOW about BOLONGO BAY BEACH RESORT.
IT IS TYPED IN TRUTH WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH:
My husband and I received an all-inclusive surprise honeymoon trip to this resort from my mother. Married May 19, 2012 we stayed at Bolongo Beach Resort from May 20-24, 2012. From the moment we stepped foot on the property we were treated like royalty (like every other vacationer there). We were greeted at the door; as they took luggage from our hands and replaced it with Island specialty drink rum punch (we were not even in the building yet!).
We entered our rooms, which were beautifully indicative of the culture. We felt and knew once we entered the room that we were in the Virgin Islands! MOST COMFORTABLE BED EVER, the balcony door had shutters that could open to allow us to hear the crashing of the waves all night until the next morning. Nice kitchenette supplied with everything you could possibly need. Room attendants were so attentive they would neatly set up all my hygiene supplies and ever folded our clothes (WOW!). BE ready to tip because the service will make it impossible for you not to.
Our all-inclusive include all drinks and food with a choice from two restaurants Lobster Grille and Iggies. Iggies was a beach bar (the only beach bar on the Island) with fantastic staff and food. Lobster Grille served the best lobster I ever ate with great ocean front ambiance this was a great spot for our intimate dinning. All-inclusive was truly all-inclusive no time restrictions, frequency restrictions, $$$ limitations (gratuity included) but again do not forget to tip your service will make you desire to tip way beyond the included gratuity, and no food or drink exclusions! If you stayed on the island 2 weeks, you would still enjoy these menu selections! If you are a healthy eater or on a diet no problem plenty of selections including fresh fruit, yogurt, club sandwiches, and grilled meats.
One of the best features of this resort is the program called "SHOP TALK." We attended a 30min talk about places to shop in town. They provided a free taxi ride to town, the paper they give you allows you to receive extra discounts in town shops and FREE GIFTS (we used some for souvenirs for family and friends). That is not all the program guarantees every item you buy so if items are faulty or break during travel you receive money back or replacement!

Bret is an awesome bartender at Iggies. He made our drinks perfectly engaged in conversation and was very friendly (even knowing his tip was automatically included).
Chris and Mckoy work the non-motorized watersports (e.g. paddle boats, kayaking). My husband and I did kayaking and accidently went outside the buoys! These men immediately responded jumping on their jet skis there response was equivalent to EMS. We did even realize we were outside the allotted space. But boy, we really felt safe entering the waters knowing these men were on our team!
Vernitta is the vacations coordinator. I forgot to bring a hair care product. On her DAY OFF, she brought me hair sheen to ensure I would be gorgeous the duration of my honeymoon. In fact, she actually made this trip following a funeral! I begged her not to worry about it but she insisted.
007 (bartending nickname) worked at Lobster Grille. He was great full of jokes. Once we were in town shopping he drove by honked his horn greeting us by our names! Sooo impressive.
I would say that you will feel right at home but unless you are royalty, that statement would be a lie. You feel more like you are living in a dream. You can stay at the lavish Marriott and other 4-5 stars on the island but is unlikely that you will be treated like a VIP by every staff person. It is also unlikely that every staff person will greet you by name (they knew our first and last) after only the first day! It is unlikely that the beach view will be as great as Bolongo's and it is unlikely that you will get a FREE SUNSET SAIL!!!! With a great staffing, that will attend to you as if their lives depended on it!!
My Husband and I vowed that no matter how much money we have, we would never rent a condo or stay at the more lavish hotels....BOLONGO BAY ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!
