My boyfriend and I just returned from our stay at the The Buccanner Hotel in St. Croix, and I think we'd both agree it's probably the best option for anyone's stay in on the island -- families, couples, etc. Although we didn't get to see the other options while there, from the research I did before (including reading these reviews!) I found this the best choice. The studio rooms close to the beach are private and comfortable, and offer all the ameneties needed (even bug spray -- which you'll need at night!). Some of the views are a WHOLE lot better than others, and I would push for one if you can. (We were told the hotel was booked when we asked to change -- however, when on the beach, it seemed as if we were the only ones there, and we were there almost at high season - 12/8-12/13). The hotel has a very 'old' feel, so if you're looking for 'hip' or 'chic' this is not the place, however, I don't think there are any hotels that are 'new' on the island anyway. The property is sprawling, and offers many options (two pools -- the one near the spa is bleek, and the one by the beach is small, but nice), two beachs (one is better for swimming because there are reefs on the other), plus tennis courts, golf, spa, fitness room, general store, shop, etc. The hotel is also in relatively close proximity to town and restaurant options, which is good because taxi prices increase as you go further away from the hotel. The food at the Terrace at at the hotel was very good. Prices seem to be high -- but if you're from NYC as we are, we were used to it. As far as restaurant options outside the hotel, the concierges were fairl helpful in making those reservations for us. There were a few people doing the booking, and one of them actually said she'd make us a reservation at one place for sunset -- only to realize (after we got off the phone) it's closed for the season (Waves at Cane Bay). Unfortunately, we didn't find this out until we went back to the room to get ready at 4pm and then had to scramble for another option. Other than that, I found the other concierges, specifically Carol, very helpful and almost overly cheery. We liked Kendricks in town -- romantic and quaint setting and good food. Duggans Reef was also DELISH and we sat/ate outside right on the beach. (Remember that bug spray!) Tutu Bene was OK -- but if you're die-hard Italian, skip it. Savant was VERY eclectic, and also nice. Ask to sit in the garden. We also did a day trip to Buck Island, which had the BEST beach, sand wise, and water color. We went with Big Beard and were pretty satisfied. Could've used more time on the actual reef, but I suppose we might've had it if the seas weren't so rough, and if there were more people on the tour that day. Overall, the trip was very relaxing and the island is beautiful.
