I often equate the price I pay for a hotel room to equate with the facilities offered. Was very disappointed with the infrastructure and beach at the Bolongo Bay hotel. Very outdated glorified motel steps from the noisy road. If rocky beaches with loads of weed growth in the water is your thing, then this is the beach for you! I would have been happy with the accommodations and beach if I was paying $150 per night for a room but the room in late January was $380 plus. Only spent one night there before we moved with friends as planned to a villa on the other side of the Island. To be truthful I didn't enjoy St Thomas as a whole. Too populated as well the overcrowding when up to 8 large cruise ships were docked at port.
On the bright side I found the staff to be very friendly and cheerful. Can't fault the staff at this place. I hope they are paid well from the management charging such high room rates to guests. The bar and wait staff were very attentive but very noteworthy was the beach attendant who actually came in helping my search for my underwater camera which I clumsily lost amongst the short weeds in the bay. The views from the rooms at sunset were fabulous as well.
Overall I would rate this hotel much higher if the prices were significantly lower!
