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.

We went to the Buccaneer for a mini vacation April 20 - 23rd. It was very nice resort. We had a problem with our air conditioner which was resolved very quickly. It couldn't be fixed at that time so they just moved us to another room without any problems. They gave us a credit and also a snack basket for our troubles. The only thing that I didn't like was the stores in town close down at 5 o'clock. Other than that everything was fine. You'll be delighted with your visit the Buccaneer. It was a great choice.

A few weeks ago my daughter and I spent five days at The Buccaneer and had a wonderful time. The people who worked there including Oceana, Heather, Joelle and Michelle, in particular, were very interested and influential in our having had a great experience. Michael at the front desk, Marlon at the Mermaid and everyone we encountered in the dining areas were great. We picked the Buccaneer because of its longstanding reputation and because it was very reasonable. Although I wouldn't say it was exactly the same as some five star resorts in the region, it certainly was no where near as expensive and we were not disappointed. The grounds were nicely kept. Most importantly, the beach was beautiful and the food was excellent. Our room was large, clean, comfy and had a great view of the beach. Through our "Romance" package - which could actually be called a taste of St. Croix or something else just as easily - the concierge staff arranged the meals included, the sunset sail, the 1/2 day snorkeling at Buck Island, 1- day car rental, massages and a few amenities like locally designed silver bracelets and robes to take home. Even the picnic basket we lunch we had the day we had a cabana rental included a lovely presentation (both part of our package) and we were able to order drinks on the beach through the Mermaid Restaurant. The resort is on the quiet side, which was great for us, but each night there was some form of live musical entertainment. The only negative thing I can say is that the merchandise at the shop wasn't as enticing as it should have been. Overall, we cannot wait to return. Thank you for making our trip to St. Croix so memorable!

Everything about the Buccaneer is first class! Every person working there was friendly and willing to help with any request! The grounds are stunning,the beaches ( three to choose from!) were lovely, and our room was sparkling with a perfect view of the beach ! My husband and I travel often,and this is one place we both agreed we would return to in a heartbeat! It is a gem ! Kudos to the staff!

This was our second vacation at The Buccaneer. The entire staff was always proactive, polite and helpful. The entire campus is immaculately well groomed. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and clean. Dinning was always a treat. All of the dinning facilities provided prompt service with wonderful food choices. All in all, we had a great time and look forward to returning in the fall of this year.

First time staying at the Buccaneer and absolutely loved it. The Views! The Views! The Views! Perfect balance between family friendly resort and privacy. We stayed beachfront at the grotto and the room was awesome decked in a Caribbean style decor. Awesome running trail to start the day and then breakfast was incredible. You won't find a breakfast buffet like this at many resorts. The staff was so welcoming and friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable. Polly greeted us each day at the Grotto pool and was so friendly and gave us great advice on things to do around St. Croix. The grotto grill staff were all so nice and made our drinks with great delight each day. The beach off Grotto is less crowded than Mermaid but you do have to be careful of the reef. Mermaid beach is recommended for children. We took advantage of the Buck Island snorkeling tour and that was an amazing experience. The boat picked us up right at the dock on Mermaid Beach. (if weather is poor then you do have to go into town to pick up the boat) Overall this was a great stay and very laid back. If you are looking to stay on site and just hit the beach and pool all day this is your place. Paddle boarding was excellent and again the staff extremely friendly.
