Bolongo Bay Beach Resort Review

All the rooms at this family-run resort tucked along a 1,000-foot-long palm-lined beach have balconies with ocean views; down the beach are 12 studio and two-bedroom condos with full kitchens. This place is more homey than fancy, but the friendliness of the longtime staff keeps visitors coming back. The beach is a bit rocky for swimming, but sails aboard the resort's 53-foot catamaran and excursions arranged by the on-site dive shop are popular. You can opt out of the all-inclusive plan and pay less, but then you'd want to rent a car, because the resort is a bit isolated. The fresh seafood-stuffed 1-pound spiny lobster at the Lobster Grille Restaurant, and Wednesday's Carnival Night with calypso music, a limbo show and West Indian buffet at Iggies Beach Bar and Grill, shouldn't be missed.
