Historical Traveller Reviews of Bolongo Bay Beach Club Hotel
Nothing short of EXCELLENT!from Yazzer
The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. The beach was beautiful with snorkeling right in the "back yard". Activities were many and executed to perfection. Highlights were the day sail to St.
John and the sunset cruise (both on the Heavenly Days - thx to Aaron and Steph). The fitness center was nice, clean and nicely equipped to get some work-out with weights and/or a run on the steppers or treadmills.
The one thing I was particularly worried about before going was the quality of the rooms since some reviews stated they were "disappointing" and "outdated". Our experience was that the rooms were nice, clean and well equipped - much as expected for a casual beach atmosphere. Showers were standard stand-up style so complaints of being too small, IMO, are not warranted but I suppose some people may expect more. We thought the rooms to be "just right".
In all, Bolongo Bay was an excellent experience for us and a great value!

Our room (no kitchen) was in the central area near the reception and the view of the beach was to die for; though the furniture and plumping could be updated (water in toilet was like cream of mushroom soup, though I realize H2) is scare on the islands). I wanted to explore along the beach to the west, but got caught on razor sharp rocks. Bring water sandles. Beach to the east is fine; good for children, since the water is very calm. Around 10.30 one evening, we got hungry and all the places in Charlotte Amailie were closed, even KKFC and McD's. We finally found a restaurant open at Bluebeard's Castle and drove there for a pizza. We were the only ones there and if I had been there with my girlfriend instead, it would have been one of the most romantic spots; the nighttime view of Charlotte Amailie is fantastic.
We will Bolongo again!!from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel itself was old but very clean. The bathrooms were very small and a little hard to get in the shower, but despite these little things, we had a ball. I would go back just for the excellant service and the wonderful food alone
Beach Casual and Unpretentousfrom Dreamin_of_Cancun
The staff was remarkable! Incredibly friendly and treated us like family. We felt like family by the time we left. From the grounds people to the service staff and activities staff all of them going above & beyond to be helpful. If you are looking for a beach vacation that is relaxing in a friendly environment and that isn't pretentious or hoity toity then this is the place for you. We liked the casual atmosphere. We will be back!

Step out of your room and on to the beach - this is very important to us. The beach view is fabulous, but there are some rocks a few feet into the water.
The rooms are clean and comfortable, but not plush in any way. The only recommendation we would have is to make the shower a little larger. The view of the beach area from our balcony was incredible.
Beach activities are too numerous to mention, and the activities coordinator, Sergio, makes sure you feel comfortable participating, and being included.
The Heavenly Days day sail takes you around the south and east end of the island then off to a perfect beach on St. John for snorkelling and lunch. The crew is top notch and you will remember this day forever.
There are two restaraunts and the food at both is quite good. Iggies, the perfect beach bar, is where we most often dined. There are specials every night and my daughter's favorite was the all you can eat crab legs - we ate for hours.
Everyone commends the Bolongo staff for good reason - they earn the praise. This resort makes you feel like you are part of their family. I ask the kids each year if they would like to try another resort or island. I am glad they say, "Why go anywhere else".
Our second visitfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The day sail on Heavenly Days to St. John is a must; Stephanie, Vic, and Captain Peter helped make the day perfect. All the staff was friendly; the atmosphere was like being at a home instead of a sterile hotel. The food in the Tree House was top notch; the surprise food tastings were an added delight. Save room for the special chocolate cake.
We booked the Club Everything package; it included an island tour, shopping trip, visit to Coral World, tramway cable car ride, scuba lesson and a few other nice things. This was a great deal!
We are already planning our next visit so we can take day trips to St.
John and the BVIs.

Top Local Tips for Charlotte Amalie
Rent a Car!!!! Be sure to rent a car. Yes driving on the left is different but doesn't take long to get used to. The winding roads aren't bad since the top speed is 35. The taxis were always crowded, driving erratically and expensive. We loved the freedom of being able to explore at our own pace and finding some of the roads less traveled.
using taxis make sure if you go into town that you always take a taxi that has a license. they will have a taxi license plate. this way you will be sure not to spend too much!
next time...rent Even with driving on the "wrong side", I think next time we'd rent a car. The cost of taxis everywhere can get pretty steep. If you make multiple trips to town or other beaches, it's probably cheaper and more convenient to rent a car.
