We have finally decided to visit St Croix for the first time in January. I had almost decided on the Palms because of the reviews, description, and location. However, I keep looking back at the Buccaneer. It is quite a bit more for a great house ocean view room (one of the least expensive rooms) in the Buccaneer compared to a deluxe ocean front at the Palms. It the extra expense worth it for this hotel and beach? We plan to rent a car and hope to relax at a nice beach, snorkle or dive, and tour the island. I know the resorts are quite different but would appreciate any advice or thoughts because I need to make a decision soon.
