Adding my "thumb's up" to The Buccaneer in St Croix as a great place to vacation in the Caribbean. Husband and I spent a week here and were very pleased with the service, food, beaches, & room (large king suite with enormous balcony & stunning views on first floor of main hotel). We didn't rent a car and feel like we got to see the sights on our wish list by using the hotel shuttle and taking the taxi island tour. The resort had everything we were looking for, so didn't need to leave. Oct-Dec is their rainy season & we had some downpours. Do pack a light raincoat & insect repellent for the no see ums. We added the "Treasures" package directly with The Buccaneer to our travel-site bundled trip and thought it was a good value. If making advance activity reservations, ask the concierge to e-mail you their "Coconut Grapevine" activity guide for the time you will be there.
