Worth every penny

This is a wonderful resort. Our room was perfect. We actually had room 133 with a partial view but it was wonderful. The Mermaid restaurant is very good and the sushi rest. The pool is wonderful. The access to free kayaks, paddle boards and snorkeling was fabulous. There is a beautiful reef to snorkel out a little ways. We all put on life vests and snorkel/swam all the way out there. I would allow 1-2 hrs to really enjoy it. Our niece was only 11 and also did it with us. The breakfast each morning is wonderful and soooo many choices. The fruit was very fresh also. The happy greeter guy made our morning each day. That is the perfect job for him.
The only complaint I have is 1) everything closes so early at the resort the restaurants, bars, , shops,etc and 2) there was never anyone at the check in desk. We checked in late and it was deserted. We waited about 15 min until we saw a person.
Also we found out there was hiking on the property that no one told us about . The concierge was never around either .
I would still definitely stay here again.

Has gone down hill....

We were returning guests and were so impressed by our previous experience, that we decided to return..When we first arrived, the lobby had a blue tarp covering an area caused by a leak from a room above, It stayed like that for 5 nights. Our deluxe ocean view room was as before only the bathroom tile was cracked amd mold was in the shower.
Dinner at the Terrace was disapponting to say the least. My chicken was raw at the bone and the potatoes were instant mashed. We ate at the lounge most nights.
The pool area at the Grotto was a hot mess at 9:00am. Dirty glasses, masks, flippers everywhere. It was finally cleaned up at 10:30 am.
While the staff was mostly friendly, the food, room and cleanliness has really suffered.

Fantastic Food, Fantastic Service

After the Buccaneer, other properties fall off quickly. The food was amazing, the service was excellent (which is saying a lot since most of St. Croix is quite comfortable being on "Island Time," The property was gorgeous with excellent snorkeling and beautiful secluded beaches. I love not having to go anywhere to see Moko Jumbies and the Coral Fire Dancers were amazing. highly recommend this resort over other St. Croix resorts. Would go there again in a hot minute.
