Booked the Buccaneer for a kayak fishing tournament in Panama City. Got a group rate, which was reasonable. The good - The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the location was bayside in PC, fun bar on site, with average food. The bad - The rooms are old (it appears some are being freshened). Our first room had a STRONG... More

My husband and I had stayed in The Buccaneer Beach Motel in November 2013 and enjoyed the friendly staff, water views and marine bird life and planned to return. That happened the past two days and we were lucky to get into a water front corner room with a patio on the south and huge picture window to the west.... More

The staff here was very friendly. The location was awesome, only about a ten minute drive from anywhere you want to go and the bar and food there was great too. Very kid and pet friendly, I will definitely be going back.

This has been a family tradition for years. I won't stay anywhere else. Friendly staff, wonderful rooms, private beach, and the view is breathtaking. St. Andrews Bay is a peaceful nook in a crazy town. The locals are friendly and the shops around St. Andrews are eclectic and fun. We especially love Two Sisters Cafe ;) There is no better... More

I stayed at The Buccaneer Beach Motel what supposed to be three days and ended up being OVER three months. Some of the best 3 months of my life. The sunsets are gorgeous. Could not wait for the next one. Wonderful views of St. Andrews Bay, and the passes to the Gulf of Mexico. The place has been totally renovated.... More

The best thing about this hotel is the view of the bay from the parking lot. Behind the guest laundry and the dog walking lawn is a small private beach which is also lovely. The rooms defenitely need to be thouroughly cleaned and updated. It is currently a little overpriced. Located next to an industrial park but near oldtown Panama... More

We have stayed twice at "the Buc" for family weddings and found its location, price and staff very good. The rooms are dated and with the exception of the bay view rooms, nothing to get excited about. The rooms were simply ok, but priced nicely. The staff was very helpful. On our second stay the AC went out at 2AM,... More
