What a lovely time! The location and views are great, of course, and the amenities are fine, but it is really the service that I will remember: gracious, cheerful and FUN! Some confusion with our Costco honeymoon package, but this was quickly and easily remedied to our satisfaction. Regular shuttles into Christiansted, and various tours pick up at the hotel.... More

The Buccaneer offers several different kinds of accommodation (note the website), including the “Great House” which is a historic hotel, boutique villas on the top of the hill (Ridge Rooms), a few rooms in a historic building (Strong Box), and ocean front rooms. They also have a cluster of apartment-style accommodations adjacent to the other side of Mermaid Beach, called... More

We came to The Bucaneer for my best friends wedding. Upon our arrival we were upgraded to an ocean front room, checked in and given a delicious rum punch. We went into the lounge area and it was amazing. You just look out of these huge archways and are overlooking the beautiful blue/green ocean and the rest of the resort.... More

We were just visiting this beautiful resort to look around and refresh old memories. We had dinner in the bar in the main building. We chose seats right at the railing where it was windy due to the upcoming storm. The menu selection was very good and all the food came correctly. The only negative was that simple substitution of... More

Our vacation was relaxing with many hours spent in the water between the beaches - swimming, snorkeling and kayaking and finishing the days in the pool watching the sunset. Check in & out was easy. Staff was helpful and fun, esp CJ with the water experience. My son enjoyed the kayak race and snorkel with the many fish and erin... More

The water here was great. Very nice and clear. The beaches were very nice. Looking out into the ocean, it looked incredible. When we went it was quiet and not alot of people. Seems most people who came during our time were much older 50+ and large families. The bad part is that there are sand fleas at the beach.... More

This was our second stay at The Buccaneer. We had a great time. The property and beaches are wonderful. Upon arrival we received a generous room upgrade. We greatly appreciate that. 5 stars for that. We did however notice a few cons this year. Nothing to ruin a vacation but here they are: 1/ If i'm not mistaken the whole... More

The Buccaneer is an outstanding resort, not just in St. Croix but relative to other resorts in the USVI and the Caribbean more generally. We have stayed at quite a few resorts in the Caribbean, some up-scale, some not. The Buccaneer is very up-scale without being the least bit pretentious. It has a very relaxed Caribbean atmosphere. We had a... More

Our family stayed for a week and had the best experience! The property is beautiful, the staff attentive and friendly, and the food was fantastic. We dined at all four restaurants. Great snorkeling on property. We will return to this gem in the Carribean.
