The Buccaneer in Saint Croix, US Virgin Islands

Pirates used to be a major concern for The Buccaneer – in the 17th Century, the great house had to be hidden in thick vegetation far from the eyes of roving marauders. A Danish baron turned it into a sugar mill in the 1700s, and in 1947 the Armstrong family opened small hotel where guests – called “continentals” – would make their own drinks and help rake the beach. In the years that followed, Lauren Bacall, Michael Jackson and Johnny Carson all graced the hotel register. Recall The Buccaneer’s colorful past with bright, traditionally appointed guestrooms and a bar menu of classic cocktails – Cruzan Confusion, anyone?

Walk through rustling palms to Mermaid Beach, a protected cove of white sand. Sail to Buck Island, named one of the most beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic. Spot endangered brown pelicans nesting on this national monument and keep an eye out for green turtles and hawksbill turtles coming ashore in the summertime. Return to the resort for a private candlelit dinner for two inside the ancient limestone sugar mill.

This July 2017 we stayed at the Buccaneer Resort on St. Croix in what they call their Luxury Beachside Doubloons. These are separate cottages right on the beach at the far end of their property. They are superb. The condition of the rooms are for the most part excellent, the view is stunning, and they are very quiet. The best way to enjoy them is to get one of the rooms on the top floor of one of the three buildings, which only contain four rooms each. We had rooms 357 and 359, which I understand to be the most requested rooms on site for good reason. On the upper(2nd) floor of the building their terraces are completely private, and their location right on the beach makes for a very convenient experience. The property itself is incredibly well maintained, and the staff excellent. The owner, Mrs. Anderson, hosts a weekly reception you should not miss. This hotel has been in her family for several generations, and her care for the site and her guests is obvious. One note to be aware of it that on the US Virgin Islands, you drive on the LEFT, not on the RIGHT, so be careful if reserving a rental car as you have to adapt in a rush on arrival. The Buccaneer has a large fleet of vans to move you around the property if you choose not to drive so this is no issue, just an FYI. On the whole, this is a resort you would really enjoy, as it caters well to both families seeking to entertain their children as well as couples simply wanting to kick back and relax.

Well maintained grounds and rooms, friendly staff with genuine smiles, made for nice evening refuge after long business days. At the Buccaneer (and perhaps throughout the island of Captain Morgan), more rum than coke and ice in a rum and coke, so be cautioned versus US drinks where one often has to request some alcohol with the ice. Very clean.

It is an absolutely beautiful hotel with beautiful views from anywhere in the hotel. The staff are so friendly and professional and do anything in their power to make your stay unforgettable. We went with friends that were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. When we checked in, their room was upgraded to a room directly on the beach and our room was at the hotel on the hill. Our friend stated that they would like us to be near them, and staff quickly settled us in a room almost next to them right on the beach with no upgrade costs to us. If course, we were so grateful and appreciative which made our vacation so much more enjoyable from day one. The food especially the breakfasts each morning and dinners on Mermaid Beach was extraordinary. GO, YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!

Just finished up a week at The Buccaneer. It is truly one of the more beautiful properties in the Caribbean. The views, whether up the hill at the Great House, or down the beach, are stunning. A quick summary of our stay: Check-in was a breeze, which was great, as we had a 14-hour travel day, thanks to airline delays. Ashton was extremely welcoming, as were the rest of the front desk staff. We were given the corner room in the great house, which had a stunning balcony that was open on two sides, providing an incredible view. It was a king room, that I think would have been fine for two people, but as we have a child that normally sleeps on a rollaway, it was EXTREMELY tight. Take that into consideration when booking thru a "vacations" website, as once you're booked, there isn't much ability to change. I offered to pay the hotel directly for an upgrade, but there was no availability by the time we figured this out (there are SEVERAL options on rooms at The Bucc).The room itself seemed a bit dated, and like it could have used some TLC, but was still nice, and well-furnished. Comfortable bed. Large bathroom. We didn't plan on being in the room much, so we easily made due, with the smaller room. I had the ability to go into one of the Ocean View rooms while there, and they were much larger, more updated, and well-appointed. Not to mention, they're right on the ocean. Breakfast is the best Ive seen in several Caribbean vacations. There is literally something for everyone, served in a huge buffet (food seemed fresh everyday, and not like it had been sitting for hours), with the view of the sea, as the backdrop. The hill...Lots of other reviews have mentioned in the hill. It is quite a walk, going up, but there are plenty of shuttles available for those that don't want to make the walk. Mermaid Beach- Incredible beach. Beautiful water and sand, and lots of palm trees. Lots of activities. Easy access to waitstaff, or the Mermaid Restaurant. Grotto Beach and Pool- Like an entirely different and unique resort, within the same property. Again, another large, beautiful beach, but this side has much smaller access to swimming and playing, due to the reef, just off the beach. This was AWESOME for those of us that like to snorkel. We got some great photos here. Pool is also right off the beach as well. Grotto Restaurant- Julian and Bobby deserve some special recognition. Julian is awesome at serving drinks and making sure all of us were taken care of, always with a smile. Bobby has been cooking there for over 20 years (according to Elizabeth, the owner), and he makes the best burger on the island. All of the food at the Grotto is great, and I think that shows by the cook. Taxis to town were easy. Our driver on most occasions was named Bachelor. Id ask for him again, as he had a clean van, great personality, and was always on time. Kids Camp- Awesome. We were certainly leery of dropping off our 7 year old, in a foreign land, but she loved it. We actually saw them several times throughout the day, as they'd walk down for some beach time, walk over to club room, etc. This can't be oversold. Polly and the staff are great with the kids, and with putting our minds at ease. If you're wanting a few hours of alone time, kids camp is the way to do it. They serve them lunch, they provide constant activities, so your kids aren't missing out on anything, and are fully engaged. We also enjoyed the Tuesday night reception at the Sugar Mill, with Elizabeth, the owner and GM. The history of this resort is special, and makes it really fun to experience. They had Moko Jumbie dancers, steel drums, and gave you a true sense of the culture of the island. All of our needs were met by the staff, and we really enjoyed getting to meet them, as well as other families that had visited multiple times. The Bucc is a fantastic property, and one that we plan to visit again. Our next trip will include an oceanside room, or a doubloon (look them up) with family. Suggested excursions: Buck Island Snorkeling, Bioluminescent Bay Kayak Tour

I decided to surprise my wife with a 8 day trip to St. Croix for her birthday and spent some time researching places to stay. I saw that The Buccaneer had good review so I went for it. Understand that my wife always takes care of all of our travel plans so this was a first for me. I have to say that the entire week was outstanding to say the least. From the grounds to the room to the food it was excellent. The staff was absolutely excellent. They were genuinely pleasant (Not the fake put on faces that I'm used to in the Northeast). We really had a great time. Would highly recommend this place. If you decide to go make sure you plan the day trip to Buck Island for snorkeling as you won't regret it. Thanks to all at The Buccaneer! See you again soon.
