We went to Bolongo Bay for our daughter’s wedding. Overall the resort could not have been any more accommodating. While there were over 20 guests for the wedding and I’m sure they enjoyed the added business, I noticed they paid attention to all of their guests. The place is older, but out room was very clean and comfortable. There are places it shows it age, but our general rule is if it is clean and things are old but maintained, we are fine. The pool area is small, but they do have a very nice beach. While we did not get the chance to enjoy the water sports equipment, there were things to do and the offered diving right on the property? The food was good, very good for the Caribbean (most of our vacations are in the Caribbean) and there is a club as part of the property that offers lunch and dinner and has nightly entertainment, so you have an option. The resort was comfortable and really do not have any negative comments about the resort itself.
Our biggest disappointment was the wedding. For a wedding planner who stated she did this for the upper crowd, I question this or she has forgotten the simple things. Our daughter selected the boat wedding, which is a catamaran. There really is not a good place on the boat for the actual ceremony unless there are just a few people. OK, not the planner’s fault, but think information about the boat layout should have been stated. Plus the process was, everyone get on the boat and wait for the bride and groom. As for the parents, they were told to wait on the boat and fortunately, my daughter asked for me to escort her to the boat. Since there was a larger crowd, there was not any consideration to at least allow the parents to be close to the bride and groom. The wedding planner was not on the boat and the overall setup of the two assistants was to make sure everyone had a drink, Ok, this was not a church wedding, but a lot of simple things were not even considered, like the parents of the bride and groom. If you decide to get married at Bolongo Bay, I would make sure you tell the exactly what you want, step by step and if there is a group of people, avoid the boat.
