    Caribbean Ease

    The Buccaneer is a top tier hotel on the beautiful island of St. Croix - an island that hasn't been spoiled by tourism. The staff is warm, helpful and ready to make sure whatever you need, it will happen. And not because the policy is that way, it's the island charm of the locals - the old Caribbean feel that everyone matters. I haven't experienced that for a while as the Caribbean becomes more congested with competition rather than quality. The hotel is slowly being updated and the rooms do need a facelift..however, they are clean and spacious and all with a great view of the 360 degree views available. And, quite frankly, I spent only my sleeping hours in the room as there are not one but TWO perfect beaches (cleaned daily) to go swim, snorkel or rest comfortably in plenty of loungers. There are tennis courts, a small gym, LOTS of beach amenities like paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear (all included), and a small basketball court beachside. There is a lovely restaurant on the premises that services one beach and the pool, and the other beach's cafe is being renovated and to be finished, I think, by the end of the year or perhaps earlier. The grounds are gorgeous and the golf course looks like an enjoyable one with a few holes by the ocean. The ocean.....although there is a reef around, one beach is completely clear and perfect for swimming. The other does have some rocks and a pathway into the water is well-defined by the hotel. The snorkeling needless to say is great. Breakfast is a good buffet - something for everyone with the most delightful staff serving. The restaurant is open and has stunning views of the ocean. I was feeling ill and the staff went out of their way to help me - gave me some island herbal tea, bitters and ginger ale ( a new now for me as a combination - isn't that a Shirley Temple??- that settled my stomach and got me right back on track. lunch and dinner is also served here and quite good. Fun bar - OK entertainment performs on the occasional night. I'm planning another trip - third time in a row. A lot of guests have been going for many years. The island is NOT a destination for parties, all night dancing, or getting wasted at a bar but one of bonding, relaxing with loved one/ones, adventure (there is island exploring nearby and diving), some good restaurants (ask the locals for their favorites) and folks that will speak to you wherever you are. I felt safe. It's not expensive. The airport rental car service can back up as everyone arrives at the same time. The roads need some TLC. I truly enjoy the pace and the place.

    Great property to stay at. Beautiful views. The staff makes the place though. Everyone was so hospitable. Everyone goes above/beyond what is expected. Milton and Ebony’s optimistic and welcoming attitudes made our breakfast experience more enjoyable. Graham runs the pool area with precision; taking care of every detail. I look forward to our next visit!

    Nice location, average quality

    The grounds of The Buccaneer were beautiful. Nice views from any direction you look and two amazing secluded beaches. Pool is small but comfortable. The hotel itself was a little older than I expected and although quaint, it was a little dated. We had a great oceanfront view in Room 335. It was also a bigger room than I expected. Had a chance to eat dinner there in the evening on the beach and the service and food was spectacular. The chef on the grill took great pride in his dishes and was kind enough to greet us. I also enjoyed the breakfast and service we received the following morning. In all it appears to be the best option in what is a very limited selection in St Croix.

    Beautiful grounds, nice hotel

    Vast property, many beaches to choose from, lots of water activities free of charge to choose from. Breakfast was included but nothing too exciting. We ate dinner at the hotel many times and I was not impressed with the quality for the price. The waitstaff and front desk workers were wonderful and took care of all and any issues and tried to make up for the food. Hotel shuttle to downtown is not free of charge and isn't always prompt. We ended up renting a car last minute (I highly recommend doing it) and it was dropped off at the hotel & we were able to leave it at the hotel for the rental company to pick it up as well. Very convenient! We took an excursion to snorkel Buck Island & the boat picked us up from the dock at the hotel which was super convenient. I'd stay here again.

    Great Company Trip

    We LOVED our stay at The Buccaneer!!! The property is beautiful and private. It was perfect for our small company group of 7. The staff was so friendly and eager to help in any way. Even though a tropical storm hit during our stay the staff made sure we were taken care of. I would highly recommend staying here. Wonderful place!!!
