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.

    Not worth the price

    The rooms are not worth the price at all. Completely outdated. Showers didn’t get that warm. Workers started with heavy machinery very early in the morning and woke us up. Definitely disappointed in the stay and it was for my wife’s birthday.

    Rooms are terrible

    While the all inclusive option is nice, the food and drinks were good, and the staff/service were great, I wouldn’t recommend this hotel. The rooms felt like you were glamping/camping at the beach as opposed to being at a hotel/resort. They are in desperate need of updating and are pretty dingy, dirty,dark. I unfortunately ignored other reviews saying the same thing and regret that. The shower dial was falling out of the wall, there were long dark hairs in the towels and in the shower. All of the hangers in the closet were rusty. The AC didn’t work well. The keycard wouldn’t open the back door looking towards the beach. The toilet roll holder is one of those giant multi-roll plastic holders you would find in a public bathroom. The beach is really rocky, to the point we couldn’t enjoy being in the water and swimming. We cut our trip short and stayed there one night before moving to a different resort. Would not recommend this hotel unfortunately. Giving a 2 star overall review because all of the staff were very friendly and food was good, but that’s about it.

    It was a great 5 day getaway.

    The place is older, but the staff, food, adventures, were all top rate. There were a couple hiccups, but as soon as you talked to management they fixed our issues. The excursions were very fun, the staff for the board are all very knowledgeable and friendly.
