The Buccaneer Delivers on Wedding/Honeymoon
Reviewed 2 days ago

The Buccaneer was a fantastic choice for our wedding and honeymoon. We spent 9 days enjoying everything that the resort had to offer. Our wedding planning began 10 months prior to the trip. We contracted with The Buccaneer to plan our wedding at the resort in St. Croix. Laura was amazing! She helped us from the very beginning all the way through the wedding. She was gracious and patient with us from start to finish. Laura made us feel special even though she does this many times per year. We could not find a bad meal at the resort. The food at the various restaurants was outstanding. The thing that made this trip special was the staff. They were friendly, informative, and kind all throughout the resort.
This was an amazing trip and experience and cannot wait to return for an anniversary!

Amazing Experience!
Reviewed 5 days ago

Top notch resort with all the amenities. You can always find something to do or somewhere to eat. The beach service was amazing as well as the breakfast buffet every morning. The happy man clapping and serving the food was the highlight of every day!

Relaxing and expansive property
Reviewed 5 days ago

Beautiful and expansive property. Old property but well maintained and it shows. Music playing when you enter your room. Try the rum punch while checking in. Beach is quiet, no seaweed, and pure bliss. We ate at the Mermaid Grill down on the beach. A little pricey but was excellent. Can’t wait for another layover.

Nice vacation
Reviewed 1 week ago

Our visit to The Buccaneer was nice. Beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea everyday. We appreciate the surprised room upgrade!!! Plenty of space in the deluxe oceanfront room for a family of three. The room location was also conveniently near the Grotto pool (very nice) and beach as well as 2 restaurant. If you come visit you will be greeted at breakfast time by Mr. Melrose (very nice and happy gentleman). For dinner at the different restaurants please request Ms. Pat (best server in the whole resort). The only complaint we had was the service it was subpar...hit or miss. Most folks acted like they did not want to be bother or like they didn’t want you there. We saw, conquered, and had a blessed time!

Very Good, Excellent Staff
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The 5* is for the staff and what they do to make patrons feel relaxed - they truly do that quite admirably, from the room maintenance to the restaurant offerings. The property itself is supremely located on what looks like a bay and its rooms extend from a hill on the bay, all the way to the beach. Truly impressive. The beach is approximately a 1/2 mile curve broken in two by 1/4 mile stretches. Clean blue waters with small swirls - seems good for all level swimmers. The rooms are of various categories - looks like the most expensive ones are closer to the water. My room was at top of the hill. Well equipped but for me, this hotel need some upgrading - it has been beat up severely from the salty waters just by virtue of its location. Amenities are OK. I wished my room had a larger work table though - but, heck, you are here on vacation so chill - and the restaurant folks make sure you realize that. They the restaurant at least once - expensive but the food is A+. Breakfast was included in my stay - don't miss if you are opportuned to this option. The staff is the best part of this - they are pretty much committed to your comfort - what else can one ask for. I had an emergency meeting on day-3 of my stay and they found me a room for my 2HR meeting at no charge. The room was fully equipped with all necessary meeting hardware. Turn-down service is part of the deal. Activities are abundant - workout room, tennis, golf, hiking...I highly recommend.
