The Buccaneer

Overview

Today, the Buccaneer is the Virgin Island’s longest running resort, but its beginnings were anything but luxurious. In its turbulent past, St Croix has been under the control of the French, Dutch, English, Spanish, Danish and Americans, all influences which have enriched the island’s culture. The area’s first building was erected in 1653 by Charles Martel, a Knight of Malta, and was hidden from the sight of roving pirates and marauders who plundered the seas off the island.

Today the Sugar Mill, an original mill used for the grinding of sugar cane, is a popular site for weddings and receptions. The Buccaneer has been operated by the Armstrong family as a hotel since 1947. In recognition of its colorful history, some guest rooms have been named for 17th century coins, including the Doubloons, Pretty Penny and Lucky Farthings. Guests can experience all the romance of the past while enjoying the luxurious amenities of this modern resort.

Early guests, known as "continentals," often made their own drinks and helped rake the beach.
