Welcome to beautiful, intimate Bolongo Bay! Paradise Too! is located in the Watergate Villas East complex - four buildings lining one side of our sparkling bay. We share the waterfront with the Bolongo Beach Resort, a 64 room family-owned resort. This is island relaxation at its' best, complete with a PADI dive shop, a 53' catamaran, and an offshore reef waiting just steps away. Three restaurants serve food throughout the day (including all you can eat shrimp and crab nights!). Onsite evening entertainment is available at Iggie's Beach Bar and Grill. Walk over for the Caribbean Buffet and stay to see the beachfront show. Or sing karaoke. There is always fun to be found at Iggies!
Paradise Too! has been completely redecorated and upgraded to provide the perfect getaway for couples. This pool-level studio features a King Bed, newly stocked kitchen, gorgeous bathroom with walk-in shower, a dressing area, and a private patio. Please see our Amenities List for more details!
The title of this review sums up our feelings. We thought we did a good job of researching this property, but apparently, we didnt!! I was actually NICER THAN WE EXPECTED!! Nicely situated away from the busyness of St. Charles in a quiet bay with little vehicle or boat traffic. Great views, close to the pool and three nice restaurants. The unit was well equipped. If we were to go back to St Thomas, we definately try to rent this unit again.....without a doubt!! Oh, did I mention that Sue was grreat to work with regarding the business part of the process. Thanks, Sue!
A great place to spend a week or few days! Everything was as we expected it to be and the position is perfect. Loved having 3 restaurants within walking distance and especially liked the Lobster Grill at the far end of the beach at Bolongo Bay Resort. Enjoyed the half day sail to Turtle Cove on the catamaran too. Definitely recommend hiring a car as there are lots of other bays and beaches to explore. We went to Avis downtown and had no problem.
My husband and I had an amazing time. Sue was fantastic. She was always available, kept us well informed and helped us with the rest of our planning. Bolongo Bay was great because everything was there. 3 fantastic restaurants, tours, watersports, gift shop. We got our Scuba Diving with the St.Thomas Dive Club at Bolongo Bay and highly recommend them. Bring water shoes because the sand at Bolongo Bay is coral and therefore a little rough on the feet and there are a lot of rocks in the water. Best part of the beach is that it was not crowded at all. Hint: On TV, there is a music station that plays just island music and sets the perfect background for enjoying a margarita on the patio.
My husband and I stayed at Paradise for our destination wedding week and it was absolutely fantastic. Paradise was clean, cute, and convenient. Our wedding party rented condos in the same complex, so we were very close to one another. It was just what we pictured before the big I DO! We spent every evening with our guests drinking and celebrating at Iggie's. Sue was wonderful prior to our arrival. She provided us with wonderful recommendations for our wedding week. Paradise was perfect and we are already planning our return trip for our anniversary.
Just back from a wonderful time on St. Thomas, and stay on Bolongo Bay. The studio condo we selected was very nicely furnished, clean and well maintained, and just like the photos shown on the VRBO website, and was perfect for us. It was in a great location, had great oceanfront views, and was just a short beach walk to fun restaurants and dining options.The owners provided very helpful island tips and suggestions, adding to our fun experience. The condo came stocked with beach chairs, beach towels and ice chest, making our days at the beach so nice. It would have been easy to have spent all of our time at Bolongo Bay, but the condo's location encouraged us to make the easy drives into Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie for shopping and dining. We rented a jeep for our week on St. Thomas making it possible to venture out and explore the island, plus take the car ferry over to St. John for the day. We loved going to beautiful Megan's Bay, on the North side of St. Thomas, and also stopped in at the Hull Bay Hideaway, the next bay over. Iggie's Beach Bar & Grill on Bolongo Bay was always a fun spot, and we had fantastic dinners at Mim's Seafood Bistro. We can't thank our condo owners enough, for all their great trip assistance. We can easily recommend a stay at their property on Bolongo Bay.
Very nice studio in a great central location. The sound of the ocean right out the sliding glass doors was wonderful to wake up to each morning. The kitchen was well equipped and the owners provided a nice selection of beach chairs, cooler, and snorkel equipment. A very comfortable mattress situated so you could look out at the ocean each morning while laying in bed! A quick tip: rent a car.
Paradise Too! is conveniently located right on Bolongo Bay. With three full-service restaurants, one of the Caribbean's most photographed and popular beach bars (Iggie's Beach Bar and Grille), three on-site pools, and the beautiful sea all just steps away, Paradise Too! is the perfect spot for couples wanting to escape to America's tropics.
An eight mile drive west along the shoreline brings you to the Duty Free Shopping Capital of Charlotte Amalie. Eight miles north along the shore from Bolongo Bay and you arrive in Red Hook - the yachting and charter boat capital of St. Thomas. Ferries to both St. John and the BVI are located here as well as fishing and sailing charters. Head inland eight miles from Paradise Too! and you arrive at the island's favorite grocery, a giant KMart, and a mall...away from the 'tourist prices'.
You will find there is no need to leave Paradise and its' many amenities but, should you choose to, many of the island's treasures may be found near by!
