We had been to St. Thomas 2 or 3 times before discovering Bolongo Bay – the Caribbean’s best all-inclusive resort – in 1994. We were supposed to be enjoying our 2nd visit to Bolongo in September 1995 when Hurricane Marilyn all but destroyed the island; thankfully Delta had cancelled our flight so they could get their aircraft out of the area. Bill and I had the honor of being among the first guests to return to the repaired, renovated and revived Bolongo in 1996. If anything, somehow the Bolongo facilities and staff were even better than before – who would have thought that was even possible! While family circumstances caused us to miss a few years (during which Katarina tried everything possible to help us get there – up to trying to get us to bring our geriatric cat), we are getting ready to return for what is probably our twelfth visit this year. And, we have had the pleasure of recommending Bolongo to a number of friends – all of whom have come back as impressed as we have always been.
The Doumeng family, all the staff on resort and the captain & crew of the Heavenly Days make every trip to Bolongo amazing and memorable. Thank you and hoping we are with you for at least another 40 years (you’ll offer us wheel chair service right?).
