About Bolongo Bay Beach Resort

Bolongo Bay Weddings & Events

We offer true destination weddings on the beach or on the Caribbean Sea. We are a small resort that cares and caters to our wonderful wedding couples and their friends and family. We do all the planning and ordering for our brides and even do all the welcome letters and gift bags for guests coming to each wedding. Our food and staff is the best on the Island and by doing only one wedding a day we make every bride feel as special as they are and they truly have their day to be the bride. Our all inclusive plan is amazing and for those that need to just have a room we offer a great rate for that as well. Everything is on the beach and all our rooms are steps away from the water. All the non-motorized water toys are also included in your stay and the snorkel booze hunt is a wonderful group activity. We have the beautiful Heavenly Days Catameran that holds 49 people and takes you on a sunset sail, half day swim with the turtles or a full day sail with lunch and open bar to St. John.Don't forget you can end your beautiful day with a bon-fire and Somores   

We love our brides!!

Always,

Lorena, Your Romance Director

Our wedding reception was so much fun at Iggies! We had a private tent for our 41 guests. The food was unbelievable and the s'mores were a big hit. Lorie did an amazing job of helping set things up and making sure the music was ready to be played for our first dance. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.

Having our wedding at Bolongo Bay was the best decision we could have made! We worked the most with Lorie - who was amazing and created the wedding of our dreams! Madeline and Bonnie were also great with all they helped us with! Lorie and her fantastic team handled everything for us. I sent pictures of our colors and how we wanted our cake to look, and they took care of everything from there! It was so easy and stress free and turned out absolutely perfect! All the vendors that Lorie recommended were perfect - the photographer, the bakery, the florist, and the minister - I could not have asked for or imagined anything better! All the staff at Bolongo were friendly and so accommodating! All of our guests say this was the best wedding they have ever been to, and one of the best vacations they have ever taken! Everyone was so sad to leave and already wants to plan a trip back! I would recommend Bolongo Bay without hesitation!

*THE GOOD:
- Nice, convenient location
- Cute welcome sign at check-in
- Nice bridal day room rental option
- Amazing vendors (hair & makeup, flowers, cake, photographer, officiant, etc.)
- Beautiful wedding site on beach under arch
- Morning after breakfast at Lobster Grille was lovely, food was very good.
- Picturesque resort with lots to do... everyone loved hanging out at Iggies!

*THE NOT SO GOOD:
- Rushed rehersal with some last minute changes
- Lack of communication before, during and after wedding, felt completely out of touch with wedding coordinator the whole time.
- No signage for my 'welcome' bbq on the beach. No one knew where to go!
- Lack of room service in bridal day room on wedding day. Called for food multiple times and got no answer. My bridesmaids and I did not get to eat before the wedding...(!)
- Ceremony music did not work properly. It was static sounding and I couldnt hear it at all.
- Leftover cupcakes, fruit, etc. not placed in bridal day room fridge and went bad. What a waste.
- Reception on catamaran not the greatest (book at restaurant instead..). Non-accessible music hook-up behind bar, lack of water for guests, no toilet paper in bathroom, rocky ride (people got sick), rude staff (man with ponytail in particular) and drink selection/drinks themselves sucked!
- Was not treated special in any way during honeymoon after wedding (ignored for a dinner reservation), now need to book 2nd honeymoon...
- Snorkel booze hunt I planned in advance started over an hour late due to confusion by beach staff.
- Showers in hotel rooms are tiny and freezing! The hotel runs on solar (undisclosed) so if you are looking for a nice relaxing shower, look elsewhere.

So, there you have it. My honest review of Bolongo Bay for a wedding venue. Clearly I was not very impressed, and several things didn't go as planned. But I will say the memories and photographs I took away from my destination wedding are priceless and will last a lifetime.

Bolongo Bay was such a great venue to photograph at. The event coordinator made sure to take care of everything, and the big day went off without a hitch. My client had a larger destination wedding of about 60 people, along with a huge reception and everything happened smoothly. I would recommend any bride that is looking to get married in the Caribbean to take a look at Bolongo Bay.

Weddings at Bolongo bay are an amazing way to start your life together! Lorena, romance director of Bolongo bay, will walk you through every step of the wedding preparations and completely set your mind at ease!

Host a wonderful wedding!
