The Lobster Grille
PLEASE NOTE: RESTAURANTE WILL BE CLOSED 9/7 THRU 9/14. Located pool side with an oceanview. Featuring steaks, fresh fish and Caribbean lobster.
Iggies Beach Bar & Grill
Voted the best beach bar in the Caribbean by Caribbean Travel & Life's readers in 2004, there is no place like Iggies if you are looking for great food and drinks, in a fun casual atmosphere. This is where locals and visitors meet, and there is always something going on with Live Music, Karaoke, and nightly beach volleyball games or basketball. Dont miss our All You Can Eat Crab Legs on Tuesday and Saturday or our Carnival Extravaganza on Wednesday night. No trip to St. Thomas is complete without a visit to Iggies.

A short weekend stay.

The staff was helpful but not very polite. It was tricky to adjust the shower knob for adequate supply of hot water in our room. The air conditioning unit was very noisy and appeared too powerful for the size of the room. We slept with window shutters open and did not turn the unit on. The hotel and its rooms are visibly dated. The location at this quiet bay is quite good for leisurely swimming, kayaking, boating, snorkeling and other activities that are mostly included in the price, which is a welcome perk. The restaurants are pretty good. The resort can provide for a relaxing family vacation.

Gorgeous location, extremely overpriced

Bolongo Bay is on a beautiful cove in a gorgeous location. It it the most beautiful view I have ever woken up to, ever. Our room was ocean front and on the second level. The room was just ok. Nothing special. Kind of old but clean. The shower knob kept coming off but we still got the water to work. The pool is much smaller than it looks in the pictures but it is nice. Was fun to swim up to a bar and have a man nicknamed "007" prepare our drinks! There is a restaurant called Iggy's which was just awesome! Fresh food and nightly entertainment. All in all, I liked the place and the service a lot. Traveled in February when rates are probably the highest but OUCH were they expensive for the class of hotel it was. Glad we went though.

casual beauty

Island hotel. Facility is a lillte worn from beach traffic, but that is exactly how I like it. No sterile Hyatt Regency. Small, beautiful beach. Just right for the price. Would go back.

We absolutely loved our stay at Bolongo Bay. You cant get a better value for such a great place on St Thomas. Beautiful beach, great restaurants, and the friendliest staff on the island. Also a great location. Quiet and still close to everything you may need. Will definitely stay here again !

Just Ok

This resort is JUST OK. It is a 2 star resort, but a good 2 star resort. Everything is aging and needs upgrading. The food is unremarkable. The staff could also up grade their indifferent attitude.

Not Fancy but Fine

We prefer the Marriott but wasn't available. Rooms are older and not as clean but the staff was very nice and for a short stay it was just fine! Pool is small but there is a swim up bar and the restaurant isn't bad.

Relaxing vacation spot

The hotel was not full during our stay, so we were able to enjoy a lot of the amenities such as games and water activities like paddle boarding and snorkeling. The location is absolutely beautiful, but the rooms felt outdated and a bit run down. In the end, that wasn't a problem since we spent most of our time on the beach.
