We just got back from our wedding at The Buccaneer. Both sets of our parents traveled with us and stayed at The Buccaneer. We were in the Doubloons, which were awesome. If you can swing the price, these have by far the best location and best amenities. My parents stayed at the oceanfront rooms, which I felt were a little... More

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Buccaneer. The property is beautiful in late April, early May. Everything was in bloom. It is very hilly, but they have courteous prompt shuttle service onsite. the breakfast buffet was wonderful. the front desk was helpful (we arrived early and while we were waiting on the terrace someone noticed our grandson was eating...

We just returned from a week at the Buccaneer. It's a big, beautiful very family friendly resort. And there's a lot to like. They must be reading the reviews there because the dining service at the resort is wonderfull and could not be more different than what is described in some of the more negative commets listed here. I would... More

My wife and I traveled to St. Croix on April 23, 2006 for a week at the Buccaneer for our honeymoon. I extensively researched St. Croix and the Buccaneer and we were not disappointed. I think the key to enjoying the resort, as with any other vacation, is to book somewhere that offers the accomodations and activities you want. We... More

We visited the Buccaneer for 6 nights and it was wonderful. Great place for families and kids. We were in one of the Family Villas which are about 1/2 way up the hill. We had a front porch with a beautiful view, a short walk to the Grotto Beach and Pool (which is where you want to go with small... More

We stayed at the Buccaneer over Easter. It is one of the last of the truely great family-oriented resorts in the Caribbean with a traditional feel. It was a great experience. The staff is outstanding. The rooms are nice and, with so many different room types, there is one for everyone. The food was very good, although a bit overpriced... More

This resort has some nice features, but some also very substandard features, given the prices. The best features are its lovely beaches, watersports, and views. We were disappointed to find upon arrival that we were not given the room we booked. When we asked to switch rooms, we were accommodated, but the room we were given was far more expensive... More

As they say in real estate: Location, location, location! The Buc' is by far situated in THE best physical location than any other major resort on the island. Close to town (Christiansted) yet far enough away to enjoy some solitude. Great staff as well...especially Pat at the morning breakfast. She is absolutely wonderful so make sure you sit at one...

Returned from a one week stay (March 18-25, 2006)at the Buccaneer with my wife and daughter(age 17). We found both St. Croix and the Buccaneer to be enchanting. Our rooms were located in the Doubloons, which are the newest and most top-notched accommodations on the property. Our suites (#361 & 363)were located in the last Doubloon building (three Doubloon building... More

I can rate the resort one of the best in the islands based on visits as honeymooners and parents. My husband and I first visited the Buccaneer on our honeymoon 12 years ago. Since then, we have vacationed at the resort twice, first with our infant and toddler sons, and most recently with our sons, now ten and seven. Our... More
