Beautiful!! Top notch service and food. We will be back in the fall.

Nice layout.. Rooms near beach overpriced. Mini Fridge in room is a micro-micro fridge. No microwave... Golf course and walking trail stunning. Hidden fees were a disappointment at check out Room Tax 60/day and "energy surcharge of 55/day added almost 1 k to the bill...Surprise!!!!

Our room was spacious with amazing view of ocean. The resort offered golf, tennis, walking trail and of course 3 beaches. Best part of this trip was the entire staff at The Buccaneer. Every member of the resort team treated us like royalty!!

I was 5 night and I love it ! Little expensive but I will pay again for the delicious food and the shows

Everyone this is the best resort to stay at in st croix. They never went down during my he hurricane season . The staff is wonderful. The servers at breakfast were very welcoming each and every day . We stayed at the vip villas excellent choice. I will return every year . The staff at the beach were very professional. They all need a raise to keep them. The house cleaners are very good .

Elizabeth is a very good operator of this unique hotel. My family experience was wonderful. It’s managed with attention to detail and the staff showed they were treated well by Management. We chose this hotel because of the family friendly environment. Drawback, restaurant prices were high and service was not like back home, but then again you’re on an island so relax and open your wallet

They refuse to honor 400$ of credit/ gift vouchers I was in titled based on my reservation with orbitz Upon my arrival they made me call orbitz and orbitz representatives made me wait on the phone for sn hour and did not resolve my issue The worst experience I ever had

This was a picture perfect place! The Buccaneer is the most exquisite and perfect resort that we have ever been to..I would highly recommend this property ...it's magical in every way ..

We stayed from Nov 8th-13th, after hurricane Maria. The island did sustain alot of damage, more so on the Frederiksted side. Some businesses in Christiansted are still working on repairs, but there are enough up and running to take a trip into town. The majority of people we came across around the island weren't tourists but were there to aid recovery efforts. The Buccaneer showed no signs of damage other than some tattered palm trees and from what I heard (taxi drivers), is the only resort fully up and running. The property is huge, 340 acres if I remember it right, and they have an equally huge staff working all day to maintain it. Everybody was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping came by at least 3 times a day. Every time we returned to the room we had more towels, ice and water, bed made or turned down every night. We had booked a room in the Great House, but we were upgraded to an Oceanfront room on arrival - nice surprise! We spent the majority of our time on the resort and it was great. Food and drinks are pricey but excellent (Cruzan rum beats Bacardi any day). There are great views from the jogging trail and walking trail by the golf course. Definitely see the concierge about scheduling a snorkel trip to Buck island - so many fish! If you don't like snorkeling, you can stay on the boat for that part, but just go see that water! It is beautiful and crystal clear!

Ocean front room with private balcony on Mermaid Beach amazing! Ice coolers and cold water coolers everywhere, great to stay hydrated. Large complimentary breakfast buffett was fabulous, delicious mango. Lots of beach toys available, free to rent at both beaches. 8ft deep freshwater pool with an ocean view was just the right temp.

Loved the location on the water and close the city. Rooms were nice and the main building had a great view of the ocean. We wanted an ocean view but it was a partial view so really only seen from outside the room. Many staff were friendly and others were not. Nice time of year during April as it was not crowded.

The facilities are ok. the food is terrible, very difficult to find good places nearby

We had an opportunity to take a long weekend in St. Croix, and having never been to the island we relied heavily on reviews. Every review we read about The Buccaneer was spot on! The hotel sits on a hill with a breathtaking view of the ocean. The staff were lovely, and attentive. What a greeting at the front desk, a taste of the island with a complimentary rum punch (fruit punch for tea totallers). Our room had a spectacular view of the ocean with warm ocean breezes. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the hotel manager had a beautiful welcome basket in our room filled with delicious goodies. The food in the dining room was nothing less than 4 star! The waitstaff knowledgeable. Both beaches have a cabana that supplies snorkel, paddleboard and kayaks. The snorkeling just 50 feet off shore was amazing. The pool was cool and refreshing after a day in the ocean. Hiking trails were a terrific challenge. The only flaw was another guest who was smoking on the premises (there is a strict No Smoking policy), right below our room. However, ONE phone call to the front desk put an end to that. All in all, four days was NOT enough of this little slice of paradise

We had a fabulous one week visit. Can't wait to return. Accommodations were right on the beach, weather was lovely, staff very caring, food excellent. We especially liked Maynard, who greeted us every morning at the delicious breakfast buffet. Views are spectacular and we loved all the history of the former sugar plantation. Owner/Manager gives a personal tour! Resort very close to Christiansted so easy to go into town and enjoy shops and restaurants. We also toured the Cruzan Rum Distillery and Botanical Gardens.

Awesome, beautiful place & location. Staff was excellent. Beaches were nice. The reefs right off the beaches were decent, but the resort has a dock that the charter boats come to for snorkel/scuba trips booked through a few of the local charter companies. Resort is on the big & hilly side but they have golf carts that will shuttle you from place to place. Breakfast buffet was very good (bacon, sausage, egg that you can order to your liking, muffins, cereals, toasts all fresh).

We've been to St. Croix 3 times and each time we've stayed at the Buccaneer. Sure there are other hotels on the island, and I'm sure they are great, but we know the kind of service we will be getting, the hotel is amazing, and the beaches are wonderful. We will continue to go back to The Buccaneer for all our future trips to St. Croix!

The stay was great. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They really have your interest on having fun in mind. The front desk receptionist greeted you upon your interest and check in was very easy. There was a small issue with my TV and it was fixed right away without any problems. There free breakfast (actually included in the package I purchased) was awesome. The view from the balcony was great and the reception they held was enjoyable as you got to mingle with other guests as well as see some of their culture displayed with the dancers. I will be going back.
