“Sad, but true!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

I stayed here in 2008, when Lisa had restored the Buccaneer Club to its former splendor. I was disappointed to learn Lisa is no longer associated with the hotel/restaurant.

In fact, the hotel is essentially closed down.

The restaurant is still open, but it is cold. The food is okay, but the service and atmosphere are gone. The current owner is no where to be seen. Very sad.

Stayed July 2010, traveled solo

1. No one was there when I arrived - totally empty and locked up
2. Breakfast if there was one opend to late to be of any use
3. The rooms are ok but the standard of showers etc are low
4. There was never anybody around if you needed help with taxis or anything
5. The location is terrible, not close to any beach
6. The pool was empty, extremly small and dirty

It does not feel like a hotel as there is no service, it is however walking distance to gov.harbour banks and food store.
Stay at Pinaple fields instead

We choosed the Buccaneer Club after reading the reviews here and can't do anything but confirm that it's a lovely, peaceful, perfect place to getaway and relax.
Rooms are spacious and very clean. Restaurant, where you will have breakfast which is included in the room rate, is very good and Governor's Harbour is a quite and delightful village with a beautiful beach.
Lisa, the owner of Buccaneer Club, and all staff are very friendly and helpful.
I'm looking forward to come back again.

I have been a regular coming to Governors Harbour for years. I stayed at the old Buc before new ownership, been to Pineapple Fields for a few nights, actually booked the entire Cigatoo for 3 nights for friends and family, stayed at the Duck Inn and finally spent a few days @ Laughing Bird. If you are looking for a room in Governors walking distance to the beach, walking distance to town, walking distance to Ronnies Bar--The NEW BUC is the place to stay. Flat Screens in the rooms, very nice wood floors, fridge and coffee makers in the room and a very comfortable bed. I am confident in saying as a seasoned visitor this is the nicest spot for SURE. The BUC IS A STRONG recomendation besides accomodations the restaurant is top 3 on the island. Lisa and Jennifer are great hosts and have done wonders to one of my favorite old digs............if you have an option request rooms on the 2nd or 3rd floor--the higher up the better the view of town and the Harbour

  • Liked — convenient location, great food, good night life, the owners are good people. Easy to support

I stay in Eleuthera quite a lot. The Buccaneer Club was just recently renovated by the new owner, Lisa, and what a fantastic job she has done. The rooms are bright, colourful, and very clean. Each room has a flat screen LCD television with cable and DVD.

The private pool is beautiful. One of the few places with a pool.

The on-site restaurant provides a hearty breakfast included in the room price.

Great value, great people, great Island. Very highly recommended.

  • Liked — The friendly owner, Lisa.
  • Disliked — Nothing. It was almost perfect.

Have travelled to Eleuthera on several occasions, and stayed at the Buccaneer twice. Upon arrival, you need to check in at the restaurant (open from 7am till 3pm), one of the few places where you will get breakfast in town. The great thing about this place is the secluded pool. It's a converted farmhouse on a hill a stone's throw from the bay. It has TV, it's relatively clean, and probably has one of the best views of any accommodation in town. You are likely to have the pool to yourself and apart from Laughing Bird Apartments, my favorite place, though Laughing Bird's selling point is their personable owners and the fact that you have cooking facilities. Typically at the Buccaneer there aren't any staff after 3pm till 7 in the morning.
