“Amazing place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Buccanneer over Labor Day weekend last year with some friends of ours and had the best experience! The staff was so nice and accommodating we had a great trip from start to finish. The Buccanneer is in a great location; you are close to town but yet on their beaches you feel as though you are far away from everything! I actually have family that lives on the island, and have stayed at many places, but I'd have to say that The Buccaneer is my absolute favorite! I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms are to die for. Totally worth it!

PROS: The property is gorgeous! The room I stayed in (Ocean view in the main building) had enough space, great view and was always clean! Great complimentary breakfast. The massages I had at the spa were great!

CONS: The restaurants are ok. The food could be better but the worse thing is the service. The staff is really nice but there are not enough waitresses. So it can take up to 15 minutes just to get the menu… The service on the beach is really poor, almost inexistent (it is a pitty because the beach and chairs are really good).

They definitely have to hire more staff for the beach and restaurants.

The Buccaneer Beach House at Whistle Point was legendary. The 180 degree ocean view, private salt water pool, amazing golf course, and fabulous service made the vacation magical. My favorite part of the estate was the master suite shower. It had an ocean view to die for. I had the cleanest haiir on the island! The Beach House was the perfect place for our reunion. We will definitely be back.

Overall a beautiful location and generally friendly staff. However for the price, the service really should be better. The restaurant service is spotty with barely warm eggs at the breakfast buffet, slow service at night, same menu items have different quality and quantity from one day to the next, some folks get a complimentary appetizer and some do not, etc. Front desk people never cracked a smile and seemed generally unattentive or maybe understaffed, once completely ignoring/forgetting one of our requests.

Room Tip: Go for the ocean front rooms for great views and privacy

What an awesome way to spend our 25th Wedding Anniversary! Seriously we were treated as though we were their only guests. We did not encounter one negative issue the entire stay, the staff truly enjoy working there and it shows they work very hard to please and I would have to say they have perfected the formula. Our Room was fabulous great views, comfortable furnishings and housekeeping staff that took great pride in keeping it maintained. Can not say enough about the food no matter where you decided to dine Terrace Room to the Grotto Beach the food was fantastic be it a more elaborate meal to a simple salad it never dissappointed. For us it was truly the best experience we have ever had on vacation, and part of the reason for this we believe is because they treat you like family.

Room Tip: The rooms between Mermaid Beach and Grotto Beach are spectacular and the View is breathtaking!

Stayed at Buccaneer with my wife and 11 m/o daughter in one room, and Mother-in-law in an adjoining room. Hotel was awesome! We all loved it. Not so fancy I would feel out of place but very nice. Beach was perfect.... water coolers so you can always get a quick drink of water, lots of chairs and palm trees for shade, Mermaid restaurant (which has great jerk wings, burgers and salads), and C Jay at the beach shack goes above and beyond for everyone at the beach, he deserves a raise! Deluxe ocean front room (#334) was excellent, perfect location between two beaches (with some nice snorkeling opportunities if visibility permits), it was clean, spacious, and had a million dollar view! Golf course was nice and had some had incredible views. Terrace restaurant had very good food and great service for breakfast, (order the chocolate chip banana pancakes) and dinner (lobster, Fillet, and short ribs were delicious). Hotel great for just relaxing or being active, something for everyone both young and old. Concierge was very helpful but should inform guests of weight restrictions for sea thru kayak tours of bioluminescence bay. went with another outfitter called virgin kayak and am glad i did because it was the best! Went diving with S.C.U.B.A. and would highly recommend them. The diving was very good, better than I expected. Snorkel trip to buck island was with Big Beards was fun and snorkeling was good. Took a ride to Point Udall, the most eastern point in the U.S.A, and the views there were breathtaking! Buccaneer and St. Croix are both places I would love to return to!

Room Tip: Room 334 was great.
