I went to the Buccaneer with a few old college pals for a little break from this horrible winter weather we've been having and I must say that I was AMAZED at how beautiful and tranquil a place the Buccaneer was...The staff was very friendly, the food was delicious (try the Pineapple Chicken Salad at the Terrace) and they had...

We stayed at The Buccaneer with our young daughter and parents for a week in December. The weather was good and the experience at the resort was great! Restaurants: The staff at The Buccaneer always went out of their way to make our meals special and our 2 year old daughter happy. A few nights we went to dinner and... More

The main building sits on top a hill overlooking the ocean with Christiansted harbor in the distance. The view is spectacular, especially at night on the terrace where we dined with live music. Our room was very comfortable & not far from the beach where you could snorkle, kayak or just relax as we did. The service was attentive &... More

We just returned from one week at The Buccaneer and were very disappointed. Although the locals were wonderful and friendly, the service left a lot to be desired in this run-down, tired, overpriced, neglected resort. The dining options were limited, and the menu never changed. The breakfast buffet was uninspiring and often ran out of food without being replaced. Mr.... More

This was our 3rd visit to St. Croix and the Buccaneer in the past 4 years, so yes, we like the place! This was our first visit during the Christmas/New Years holiday, however, and we were anxious to see how the Buccaneer handled the holiday season. In a nutshell, very well! The campus was nicely decorated with lights for the... More

beach is a good walk from the ocean-front rooms of the main hotel. Terrible dropoff of about 3-4 feet. Glad I didn't have the grands with me. Staff wonderful, especially concierge Mariah!

The hotel: This was our first trip to St. Croix and we had a very relaxing, laid back vacation. Booked this hotel through a deal on jetsetter. Despite the deal, it was still a bit of a splurge for us, but we were attracted to the remoteness of the island, and the historic character of the hotel. We were greeted... More

The hotel tries hard but falls short. Everyone who works there is nice and tries hard but they over promise and can't fulfill what they promise. We were there with our teenage sons who looked forward to what the hotel promised as teen age activities every afternoon (Touch football, soccer, bocce, etc) NEVER did one of these activities start.

This was the only time I had ever been to St. Croix, and The Buccaneer seemed to be the nicest place on the island. We went into town a couple of times either for dinner or a snorkeling tour. Other than that just hanging out on the beach at the resort and renting their canoes to go out into the... More

The Buccaneer is one of my family's all-time favorite places to go on St Croix. We are a big family of all different ages, and the Buccaneer offers something for everyone. It has great beaches, fun activities, luxury rooms and villas, a fitness center, health spa, golf course, tennis courts, two swimming pools, and four great restaurants!... Now do you... More
