Great amenities and activitiesPosted Mar 29, 2014
Pros: Beaches, pools, activities, free GREAT breakfast.
Cons: Cleanliness of room for a clean freak, but my husband was not bothered at all.
Location: There is a shuttle into town.
I am a clean freak and the glasses in the room were dirty on the first day. However, then I ate the food at the restaurants, snorkeled, kayaked, and swam in the two pools and three beaches. The hotel staff are lovely and try to help you at every turn (they always said hello and were polite, cleaned the glasses when I asked, and provided me with bug bite medicine when I needed it). It is in a nice location. Overall, a great resort hotel!

Best views&service!Posted Mar 29, 2014
Pros: THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT, THE VIEWS WERE AMAZING AND THE ENTIRE FACILITY WAS IMMACULATE!!!
Cons: THE TWO FINER DINING SPOTS, The Terrace & The Martel were not as good as their casual dining spots (The Grotto& The Mermaid ) .
Location: We did the BUC ISLAND trip to snorkel in the coral reefs! We loved it so much, we took them up on their offer of going a second time for half price!
We chose The Buccaneer to stay in and have OUR WEDDING there, and it was the best choice I could have ever made!!! The room they upgraded us to was right on the beach, private, breath-taking views right from our bed, not 2 mention on our balcony! The staff were all amazing, helpful, friendly, and thorough!!! If there was anything I needed, it was a phone call away!! They sent a shuttle as many times as we needed, to drive us up to the" main/great house" bcuz our room was a bit far (nicely secluded) from where the front desk, breakfast, gym etc was located but they were happy to drive us whenever we needed! Everything was with a smile and a "no problem!" The beaches, pools, facilities were all immaculate. The on-site gift shop, boutique, spa had everything u needed without ever having to leave the grounds! If I'd of known, I would have packed a lot less stuff to bring!!!! My wedding planner, Corinne Farinola, made sure every detail went smoothly, any last minute request I had was taken care of! She even gave our son an upgraded room closer to our room just for the convenience of him being close 2 us! And they didn't charge us for the upgrade. The restaurants at the hotel range from casual/grills(the grotto & the mermaid) to finer dining (the terrace and the Martel) . We actually LOVED the casual restaurants but weren't as impressed with the 2 fine dining places, however, the ambience& live music made up 4 it so I'd still recommend!! WE LOVED THE BUC! WE WILL GO AGAIN!

Beautiful ViewsPosted Mar 22, 2014
Pros: The location and seclusion. Clean and well kept. Free WIFI.
Cons: I did not notice anything worth mentioning.
Location: There is no need to leave the property for anything. Just a taxi ride away if you want to. I want to return to have time to explore the island.
The views were breathtaking from every location. It is a perfect place for an island wedding. It is a perfect place for a low key beach vacation. Very restful atomsphere. The staff was helpful without being intrusive. The service for the rooms was above what was expected. The transportation around the property was very prompt. Restuarants on site was all you needed; from simple fair to the top menu items.

Excellent staff and 3 beaches!!Posted Mar 2, 2014
Stayed for 6 nights. The staff is wonderful and the resort is clean and manicured. The room overlooked the ocean and the view was breathtaking. The bed we had was hard although we met folks that upgraded their room and said the bed was soft... Danny at the front desk was awesome and the bartenders Terry and Laura are great!! The property has 3 beaches; we snorkeled right off the beach and saw a see turtle and a stingray! The people on the island are also wonderful An overall great vacation.

Great relaxing StayPosted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: The Beach and the food.
Cons: Rooms could use some updating and internet was weak.
Location: There was not much of a town and not too much to do, but the idea was to relax and get warm
It is a beautiful property with a great beach. Everyone was very attentive. Very clean. It could use some updating and they do go by Island time. Nothing moves to fast. We had a great time and would surely come back.

Beautiful property but showing a little age.Posted Feb 8, 2014
Pros: The property is beautiful and the golf course was fun to play
Cons: Food and beverage is overpriced. The rooms, especially by the tennis courts are showing their age. And the staff is not overly friendly,
Location: The wasn't much happening in downtown christensted (may be the time of year) but the golf was great.
Overall I recommend the property. With that said, the terrain is hilly which make it difficult for older or physically challenged individuals. The hotel offers efficient courtesy shuttles but prolonged use is tiresome. The staff is not overly friendly, prices are high (drinks & restaurants) and the food is nothing special. Once you reach the beach (very nice by the way) you can enjoy drinks and lunch but beach side drink service is horrible. The resort is a few miles from town and due to the lack of sidewalks you simply can't walk off the property. Expect to spend around $20 (round trip) every time you leave the property. The golf course and staff were fantastic which swings my vote in favor of the Buccanneer

AMAZING VACATIONPosted Jan 13, 2014
Location: Diving in Christiansted with the "DIVE EXPERIENCE" folks was perfect. We had the best dive with Michelle and Tom as our captain.
We had a wonderful week, with weather in the 80's warm breezes and plenty of sun. Water is warm and inviting. The morning breakfast was perfect with everything you might want. Fresh fruits, yogurts, and juices eggs, sausage, bacon, a special every morning, pancakes, french toast, and the list goes on from there. Everyone is friendly and happy and helpful to your every need. The Golf course is AMAZING! The views will distract you a bit because it's so beautiful but what a blast to play their course. Grotto beach is quiet, which we like, and they have the best burgers made by Bobby, which is a MUST. Dinner at the Terrace every night was great and entertainment every night was perfect. Just right for a week of just chilling and enjoying Island Time.
