A change for the best!!!

I am a return guest to the Buccaneer, it seems that this hotel has done a 180! The staff were incredibly friendly and accomodating. At check in we got the pleasure of meeting Michael at the front desk. He was so amazing! He is genuine,welcoming, and professional, something the hotel industry needs more of! We also enjoyed the rum punch upon arrival! Later I overheard that staff having what looked like a meeting where they were saying some kind of hotel motto, where a gentleman giving the meeting was playing games teaching the employees how to better the guest experience. It appeared the chef came out and went over every little detail. I was highly impressed since being in the business myself for over 25 years. The next morning we enjoyed breakfast where we saw the same man that gave the meeting working at the omlette station. We joked with him and asked if he ever goes home. He laughed and went on to tell us about all the great things to do on property as well as the island. The beach attendant C.J. is a wealth of knowledge and would do anything and everything to accomodate us without hesitation! He is truly a gem to the Buccaneer! The housekeeping staff was fantastic! They were so sweet, friendly, and made everything immaculate! The man from the omlette station we later saw out in the parking lot picking up trash in a suit! We talked to him later and found out his name is Jason and is the food an beverage director for the hotel. Going back to my experiece in food and beverage I really appreciated Jason taking the time to talk to us and made sure we were having a fantastic time. This hotel is gorgeous, the grounds and beach spectacular, and Jason and his team phenomenal! They are assets to this hotel and made our time at the Buccanner Hotel the very best stay we have ever had anywhere! I would highly reccommend this beautiful resort!

Best family vaca EVER!

I don't believe I have ever vacationed where the staff were so gracious. The food servers were welcoming and friendly. The Beach Shack staff were universally helpful and fun. Concierge staff seemed unflappable (ok, one inconsequential flap), and even your maintenance staff were welcoming. My builder son enjoyed talking with several of them. I personally had a really fun Pickle ball lesson (my first ever) added to all my other great times.

Each of my children have separately described our vacation as "..best ever...". Lodging and views were remarkable in the sense that there didn't seem to be a poor one on the entire facility. Food was excellent. We were even contacted directly by the George, the head chef, who had suggestions for our group vegetarians.

ALSO, pay attention to the days each restaurant on the property (there are 3) is open so you can make meal plans. Don't miss a chance to go into Christianstad for a walk-about. Feed the tarpon, visit delightful and interesting restaurants, and learn a bit about the history of the delightful island.

I attribute the welcoming character of this particular resort to leadership who recognize the importance of relationships- not things, but people - to the overall enjoyment of our visit. I particularly want to thank Nadia, the Front Office Director for being our first welcomer , guide, and planning support for our stay. THANK YOU, Nadia and your staff.

Best bar to watch the sunset

We loved visiting the Buccaneer while in St. Croix. The property is beautiful. While staying with family with a house on St. Croix, we went twice to have cocktails at sunset at the bar. Highly recommended. Friendly and professional staff.

We stayed at the Buccaneer for 9 glorious days. The rooms have a lot of space & a large bathroom. Ocean front had a patio where we drank coffee in the morning. Excellent maid service-also has a guest laundry. The staff are super helpful- the concierge can book restaurants or Buck Island trips for you. Definitely recomment staying here!

What a beautiful wedding we had last Saturday @ the Buccaneer Resort! The staff was exceptional and friendly! Our wedding specialist Laura was outstanding and accommodated us after our first venue was shutdown due to the hurricanes! We are extremely grateful and thankful to have gotten married in beautiful St. Croix on Mermaid Beach!

Thank you to the Buccaneer Family for hosting our special day and sharing in our love story! We will be back! Our oceanfront room was beautiful! Thank you for all the wonderful Buccaneer wedding gifts! We created memories together that will last a lifetime!
