What We Love

  • We love being just steps away from the beach, plus the resort is very family friendly and it's not too big. 

Things to Know

  • With tons of free water activities to keep everyone busy, a friendly vibe and a cozy atmosphere, Bolongo Bay in St. Thomas is a perfect match for just about anybody.
Going on vacation is all about having fun. So lose yourself in the Caribbean vibe at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort. Family owned and operated since 1974 by the Doumengs, the resort's small, friendly atmosphere offers a vacation that seems like home. We're not the only ones who think the Doumengs are doing it right. 

Richard Doumeng, Managing Director, was recently awarded the "Golden Conch" Caribbean Hotelier of the Year Award by the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association. Get lost in the all-inclusive paradise at Bolongo Bay. Located on a 1,000-ft stretch of white sand, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort redefines the word "beachfront." Kick back on a lounge chair and watch the kids swim, or check out the freshwater pool for rum punch at the swim-up bar. After you've worked up an appetite, two open-air restaurants draw you in: lobster specialties are a hit at The Oasis, and we hear conch fritters at Iggies Beach Bar and Grill are delish. Wednesday nights, Iggies hosts the wild Carnival Extravaganza, with steel-pan tunes and a limbo show, or you catch a cab to Charlotte Amalie for more action.

Whether you're hanging out at the beach or seeing the sights, there are tons of things to do during the day. Start a game of beach volleyball, or challenge the kids to paddleboat races. Try parasailing, or book a snorkel or scuba excursion to see the underwater world. Day trips to nearby St. John, St. Croix and the British Virgin Islands are popular, but St. Thomas also has great appeal. Paradise Point has unforgettable views. The shoreline is beautiful from Magens Bay. And kids love feeding stingrays at Coral World.

Book an appointment with the massage therapist after a long day to unwind. Since Bolongo Bay is smaller and intimate, all 64 rooms are beachfront, so you can kick back and enjoy the Caribbean from the privacy of your balcony. Families don't have to navigate any pesky stairs with young children in the Beachfront Room, and if you're traveling on a budget, the Value Room is just right.

    Great resort

    I actually stayed here with my husband in April of 2017, but it won’t let me choose a date that far back. I just wanted to drop a quick review because this place was truly amazing. We did have problems with the water in our shower in our first room but they upgraded us as soon as we let them know what was going on. You are RIGHT on the beach. The restaurant is really great and having breakfast overlooking the ocean is a perfect way to start each day. The staff and service were absolutely incredible! We absolutely loved winding down the day at the bar on the beach with a beer and live music. I have nothing but good memories of this place, it was a fantastic experience!

    Old Facilities....

    We stayed in 3 rooms (3 couples) and each room had small showers with mildewy shower curtains in the bathroom, rust rimmed toilets and musty sheets. The beach is pebbly so bring water shoes. This is a privately owned, operated and run place so expected limited and slow service. They will look out for their pocketbook before they look out for their customers. Sole proprietor was definitely more concerned about his own welfare before his workers or customers.

    Great trip

    Stayed for 4 nights with all inclusive package. Food and beverage were great. They had different dinner special each night. Pool is small and the beach is a little rocky with no surf. Rooms were clean but not modern. Staff on site is excellent and very helpful. Enjoyed and would love to return.

    Fantastic stay

    Belongo Bay is a family run small boutique hotel. The hotel is footsteps away from the sand. The beds are extremely comfortable. I would recommend this hotel for young professionals like myself. With beach amenities plentiful and the sunset Cruise was a joy to witness.

    How much time do you spend in your room anyway?

    So the rooms are dated. Just get that out of the way. If you are looking for a luxurious bed and up to date bathroom this is not the place for you. However the rooms were clean and the views from the balcony were amazing. Now if you are looking for fun, great service with a smile and good food and drinks, then this is the spot for you. I traveled with a large work group and everyone had a great time. Breakfast was satisfying, we were not there for lunch, but dinners were good and great portions. I had the burger and the Mahi and both were excellent. Salads were good too! We did not take advantage of all the amenities because we took day trips but there was plenty to do on the resort as well. At night the bar was lively with music and drinks flowing! I would go back again! Few suggestions: I would ask for extra blankets when you get there though. Only 1 sheet on the bed and it got chilly. Also, confirm tipping and how the all inclusive works when you check in. Some people had questions about charges when we checked out. Bring a reusable bottle or buy bottled water off site. They charge $2 for a small bottle of water but have a large container of cold water you can use to fill water bottles. Have fun!
