Bolongo Bay is a wonderful vacation destination, but only if you love amazing views, terrific food and drink, and Caribbean hospitality and entertainment. We went with the all-inclusive option and loved it. Everything, from the Lobster Grille 5-star restaurant to the sailing and snorkeling trips, was covered. And Iggie’s on the beach…you couldn’t top the live entertainment, especially Carnival night. Look up the menus online and dream about your choices during your stay, and don’t forget to work your way through the tropical drink menu.
I noticed a number of reviews where guests noted the rooms were a little tired and blah, blah, blah. Hey, if you go to an all-inclusive resort to hang around in your room, get a clue. The rooms were fine and the housekeeping excellent.
Getting around the island was as easy as using the front lobby taxi service. Fares are listed on a large display - $6 to go here, $8 to go there. On your return trip when you catch a taxi, make sure you ask the driver “How much?” You might be pleasantly surprised to find out the price went down a little bit.
Book the ‘Swim with the Turtles’ sailing trip and the Sunset Cruise. (They’re both included in the all-inclusive package.) Use of water toys is free, including your snorkel gear. There also are plenty of chairs and umbrellas on the beach for everyone as well as a few friendly iguanas that lumber by now and then.
Bolongo has that kind of down home feeling, which made us not only feel welcome, but like we belonged.
Don’t worry, be happy, and stay here.
