I wanted to write this review based upon a lot of the ignorant comments I have read regarding this resort. First off, you get what you pay for. If you pay the average of $200-300 a night - you will get a very simple room at most caribbean resorts. This being said, I don't understand the complaining. When you go to an island - you are not going to New York or Las Vegas. Folks need to realize that going to an island is a very different experience. I had the pleasure of staying in one of the doubloon suites which I payed high dollar for. The room was well worth the money and I have had not stayed in better accomodations over the last 3 times I have been to St Thomas. Mermaid Beach is hands down one of the best beaches on a resort in the caribbean period. The service at the buccaneer is excellent. The golden rule usually applies in the caribbean - if you present yourself as a respectful guest - you wil be treated kindly in return. If you knit pick and shoot your mouth off - this tends to downgrade the service towards your stay. I also had the opportunity to visit other hotels on the island and I can tell you that the Buccaneer is THE HOTEL to stay at. Enough about the resort, now to St Croix in general. The beautiful beaches, activities, and restaurants on St Croix easily rival St Thomas & St John. I can see how some tourists might find Christiansted or Fredericksted scary when visiting if you are there past business hours. However, if you can get past your stereotypes, you will find the people on the island quite friendly. The point I am trying to convey is that if you do your research before going on vacation and have an idea of what to expect - you will be better off for it. Having traveled to the other Virgin Islands previously, I have the benefit of saying that St Croix is a great place to visit and the Buccaneer is an above average place to stay. I know that others may not agree with my opinion, but I have to ask them how they were raised and what they expect when traveling to a remote location. Last point - Get over the price of lodging and dining - it really is no different if you are staying/dining at upscale facilities in major US cities. This is the Caribbean - enjoy what it has to offer and relax.
