Great hotel with beautiful ocean viewPosted Feb 26, 2018
Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Many activity opportunities and the concierge will set everything up. Spectacular ocean views. Room was clean with a nice private balcony. Our room was close to the lobby, so sometimes it was noisy in the early morning if you are trying to sleep in. Keep in mind that you will pay at this hotel - not just for the room (which you know ahead of time) but also on-premises for meals. Food was quite good but crazy expensive. If concerned about that, I'd suggest stopping at a grocery on your way there to pick up food for lunch, a couple of dinners, etc (room had a mini-fridge and microwave). Or, eat in Christiansted some days. As long as you don't mind paying, this is an outstanding hotel.

Beautiful hotel, and generally friendly staff.Posted Feb 22, 2018
Pros: really close to the beach. Great views.
Cons: Communication between staff members. For the price I paid, it should have been a stellar experience, but it was about average for a Holiday Inn.
We checked in a little early, and were given a room, but somehow the staff did not communicate to each other, so we were interrupted by a toilet repair within 20 minutes of arrival, then again by a cleaning staff who let herself into our room 15 minutes later. There was a lovely gift basket on the table, but unfortunately, it was addressed to some other party. When I called the front desk about it, I was told it was an error, and that they would come by to retrieve it. The whole stay, from that point on, just was "off." Breakfast the next morning included confusion by the waitress - apparently she did not realize that we were there for breakfast, so did not direct us to the buffet (!). We were seated and left alone for 15 minutes with no request as to what we wanted to eat.

Gorgeous grounds with views galore!Posted Feb 17, 2018
Pros: Relaxing in style and views of Christensted at night, we swam daily and walked the beautiful landscapes.
Cons: Time for food service was slow enough to enjoy a beverage and relax before eating.
Location: Beautiful grounds with history and stunning views, we enjoyed seaplanes going by several times as well as schooner excusions sailing by.
We received an upgrade to a palatial marble bedroom with spa jet tub and glass shower, lovely marble porch near ocean waves lapping and entrance to beautiful beach with 5 star amenities. The main hotel uphill had live music every evening and a lovely soft breeze through the restaurant and bar area. Lots to do, shuttle to Christensted and Buccaneer had lovely meet at sugar mill with entertainment, nature walk of history and flora, as well as many other events and excursions.

Clean, close to the beach, pleasant/friendly staffPosted Feb 4, 2018
Location: Snorkeling, walking, downtown shopping with much local history. BUT, beware. The roads on St. Croix are horrible with HUGE POTHOLES EVERYWHERE.
The Buccaneer Resort is wonderful. Meals are great, but pricey, but you get what you pay for. Nightly entertainment was good, along with a personal welcoming tour by the owner, who is a very classy individual. Weather was great, snorkeling was 15 minutes away by taxi, Big Beards, who provided a great adventure. Grounds are spotless, and there are tennis courts and a golf course for those that use them. Nice walking trails, but like anywhere in the Caribbean, no see ums can be a problem, that's why insect repellent is supplied. Great pools and outdoor recreational facilities. Beautiful landscaping and plant material along with local wildlife. Just a great place to relax.

Excellent views with great amenitiesPosted Dec 23, 2017
The views from this hotel were breathtaking. Waking up in the morning with the ocean right in front of you was amazing. The amount of things to do while at the beach was perfect. The staff were all friendly and seemed like they really wanted you to enjoy your stay. The kids loved all the selections for breakfast too!

we had a good stay. The hotel tries hard to accommodate guests well. Service is not always attentive at the restaurant. Beach service is very good.

Great Hotel and Very Good StaffPosted Dec 2, 2017
Pros: The stunning view and beach as well as the rooms and staff.
Cons: Better training for a few of the breakfast waitresses.
Location: The hotel is located east of Christiansted. Scuba diving on Buck Island is great - Lots of water activities on the island as well as great golfing.
The Buccaneer is ideally located on a beautiful section of the island, east of Christiansted. The beach is stunningly blue and beautiful - The only other place where I have experienced such stunningly beautiful blue beach water is on Curacao. All around he hotel is very well kept and the staff is generally top-notch. In my experience, the only area for staff improvement is the breakfast waitresses, not all but a few. A few need to be re-trained in the area of pleasantness, courteousness, respectfulness and professionalism. For example, one morning the waitress wearing the turban asked me three times with an unpleasant attitude for my room number even though the breakfast room was not crowded and she didn't seem very busy. Either she has a bad memory (unprofessional) or was being disrespectful. Either way, it was not a "good look" for the restaurant. Overall, however, the experience at the Buccaneer is quite lovely and I would highly recommend the place to anyone who would like an idyllic vacation on St. Croix!
