Despite everything being planned last minute, this trip couldn't have worked out more wonderfully to celebrate a very special birthday and also take advantage of our five-year-old's spring break. It is not possible to express adequately that the absolute beauty and convenience of the resort are in every way enhanced by the amazing quality of the staff. My travel experience is mostly for business with stays at some of the finest hotels in the world. The staff at the Buccaneer are in every way comparable to those other world-class staffs and exceeded my every expectation. To be specific, there are many people to thank (Corinne, Patrick, Adriene, Chef Gary, Ben, Tad, Tammy, Chris and of course Vasco) but also the services, especially if you have a family, too deserve a highlight for their thoughtfulness and execution:
Special Events: the resort would have been perfect even without the ability to go above and beyond the normal suite of services, but Corinne ensured that every last detail was perfectly orchestrated for an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime dinner in easily the most romantic venue on the island: the Sugar Mill. The menu, prepared by Chef Gary, was among the best meals I've had (impressive creativity) and the waiter, Vasco, was entertaining and attentive. Even those who had not planned on being a part of the evening, like the restaurant manager Ben, went above and beyond, grabbing tea lights from his own office to enhance the lighting and the mood. An amazing evening I cannot praise enough.
Kids Camp: as the parents of a 5yr old who loves to be around us, we were so pleased with the quality of child care at the resort that this deserves a special nod, especially Adriene, who ensured that every day was engaging and an absolute blast. He had so much fun that our feelings were nearly hurt when he insisted upon kids camp over spending time with us but consider it a blessing that such high-quality and trustworthy childcare exists as a standard service. Parents take note – this service is outstanding!
Dining/Bar Services: everyone at the resort was eager to ensure that our experience was perfect. That includes the wonderful bartenders and waitstaff (specifically thanking Tad, Tammy and Chris) but also Patrick who made sure that our meals and overall experience were going above plan and stepped in to fix a situation that was not (service a little slow, hardly appalling). It was clear the staff cared deeply about their jobs and took a lot of pride in them.
Overall, everyone had an amazing experience and I can easily recommend the Buccaneer to anyone looking for the perfect place to recharge and appreciate that others are working hard (and loving it!) so you don't have to, completely ensuring a unique and memorable stay. Thank you to everyone - we cannot wait visit again!
