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.

My husband and I recently spent 7 days at the extraordinary Buccaneer in St Croix. The hotel overlooks the ocean and is a magnificent, historic building kept in pristine condition. The open-air bar and dining room felt like I had been transported to heaven. There was a variety of styles of music every night and the musicians were talented and engaging. The staff could not have been more helpful from the front desk to housekeeping. The serving staff in the dining room were excellent, while the Mermaid staff was a bit slow...but we were on a vacation so we were not in hurry. We loved every minute of our vacation.

Had dinner this evening (we have been coming to the hotel for 20+ years). This evening’s service for dinner was incredibly slow. Well past any hurricane issues - number of servers, issues with expediting in kitchen - too bad and not what we have come to expect from this venerable hotel.

The Buccaneer is wonderful because it covers a wide area including three beautiful beaches. Its structure is perfectly integrated in the landscape with the pink and yellow color of its building, the main colonial house, the villas and the front ocean rooms together with the green of the golf course and the turquoise water of the sea. So the location is perfect, also if in this season the water is not crystal clear, but in any case enough calm. Fantastic in general is the fact that the beaches, despite the number of guests, seem desert and exclusive. There are many amenities inside in addition to the beach, like a swimming pool, two restaurants, and other things but the despite all these elements the lodge is not perfect. In general the structure is a bit old, the rooms are wide and elegant but they probably need a review not appearing exactly updated in term of facilities and furniture. For example the beds are so high and not so comfortable. We have had the unlucky situation to be obliged to change the room because there was a loss of water but we gained luckily an upgrade to a deluxe suite ocean front, really so beautiful. The other small constraint is that the service is not always at the same level especially in the restaurants where sometimes you can risk to be managed by waiters a bit too rough. This is not nice considering the standard and the price this hotel aims to show. Anyway the beautiful location and some other positive attitudes of part of the staff makes The Buccaneer a real dream on the seaside, expensive but capable to assure you a real rest.

Me and my husband came here for the half of the day to relax on the beach. Had lunch in the restaurant, which was ok. The facilities look good. The stuff told us that next time we come for half of the day we would have to pay, which is ok as most of the places do that but I know for a fact my friends were there a week before (also just for half of the day) and they were never asked to pay a day pass. I find it a bit strange - if you have a day pass then you have it for everybody!

If you want to visit St Croix this is the place to stay. We stayed at a deluxe oceanfront room which had an amazing view of the area. Food was good, though as referenced in the title, it would be great if they could offer all-inclusive packages. The hotel is isolated enough that you won't hear any noise from the roads or nearby homes. The included beach equipment, inc. snorkel equipment, is a great addition. The roads in St Croix are terrible, but Christiansted, Frederiksted and the Cruzan Rum/Captain Morgan's distilleries are not far from the resort. Very friendly and helpful staff.
