  • A great family vacation in St Croix

    The hotel grounds are beautiful, and the Hurricane (Maria more than Irma) damages, were fixed, the hotel is getting electricity locally, so they never lost a bit, they have been on all the time.

    Check-in process, was a breeze with a nice Rum drink. A car took us to the room. The room was amazing, renovated with a porch watching the ocean. A Jacuzzi and a shower, all new. However, it was not a one bedroom suite at the doubloons, like we booked and since we have 3 kids, we could have not stayed there. After speaking with Joel, from reception, he worked on another solution and came with multiple offers to cure the issue - what a great customer service! The big hotel chain should learn. We ended up staying at the non renovated secluded area with two rooms connected 301-302. Fantastic place. Joel was treating us like real valued guests, I wish other hotels would take note.

    The pool - They were renovating a small pool on the beach side, and asked us to use the pool next to the reservation desk and the stores. The pool was extremely small with 8 tan beds, but my kids enjoyed it the first day. We didn't go back to the pool. Who needs the pool when you have the beach.

    The Mermaid beach - fantastic beach, sand and cocktails served to your tanning bed, the bar service is at the island pace, but when you set your clock to island time it doesn't bother you. The food at the mermaid beach restaurant is all fried, kids liked it. Drinks and food are as expensive as expected. Besides the beach and the games on land, you can borrow any of the SUP & Kayaks for as long as you want, which was just fantastic.

    The service at this hotel is exceptional, I would like to command Jeanette from the Mermaid bar, Joel with an amazing customer service orientation, Krystal just fantastic at checkout, the only complaint I would have is with Dianne at reception - there is a way to speak with customers, but she was an anomaly.
    The hotel is being renovated, probably after the Hurricane, but why starting at 7am outside my room? Monday and Tuesday we got an early wakeup from the workers outside.

    Fitness - The gym is very small, part of the tennis court, they bought a new tool, but kept its closed box in the corner, didn't open it. The fitness center has three treadmills, some weights and that is it.
    Breakfast - Great, but slow, service and great collection of food. Just order your special egg dish as soon as you sit down, it takes about 30-45 minutes to make it. Doesn't matter if the hotel is full (thanksgiving) or not (Tuesday the hotel was empty).

    Dinner - we had two dinners at the hotel, the food was high end, fish overcooked, very convenient, but expensive.

  • Wonderful family vacation

    Our family of 5 (3 kids 22 through 17) had a fantastic time at the Buccaneer for Thanksgiving week. Being the beginning of the pick season and after Maria, the resort was not fully booked and that was a nice plus not having to deal with crowded facilities. The views from the rooms and from the restaurant are amazing. The Mermaid beach is the best you can expect in the Caribbean with palms and white sand. Snorkeling is great just right off the beach. Grotto beach and restaurant were closed for seasonal renovations but looked wonderful too. Plenty of activities for all ages: golf, tennis, snorkeling, beach activities. We rented a car and it was a good idea to go to Christiansted (5 minutes drive) and visit other areas of the island. Breakfast at the Terrace restaurant includes all you can think of with great quality and views. The Mermaid restaurant has a good variety and quality for lunch. Chef Chris did a phenomenal job with the fish we caught on our deep-sea fishing tour. He was quite creative and surprisingly delicious with the Barracudas, and did a top job with the Mahi. Rooms are very clean and spacious and the resort seems to invest in significant renovation and upkeep of all the buildings. All employees are courteous, friendly and very helpful with the exception of the golf shop guy. Do not miss the Tuesday evening reception at the sugar mill.

  • Classic, gracious, timeless, resilient

    We visited in the first week reopened after Hurricane Maria. They were firing on all cylinders. In a strange way, The Buccaneer reminded me of a timeless New England Inn. It is sprawling, has something for everyone, and many interesting nooks and crannies. And there is a wonderful homage to its own history.

    The other reviews say it all. Attentive - but never fawning - service, wonderful food, lovely beach, spectacular setting. But a few things to be aware of. It is the tropics. There are bugs. Make reservations for dinner or you might be shut out. (But room service is terrific). Drinks are pricey. But booze in the duty -free shops in town is cheap.

    Simply great!

  • Fabulous experience! Best vacation ever!

    The Buccaneer is a wonderful friendly hotel. The staff is superb! Always helpful, friendly and fun and they go out of their way to help. The views, beaches and restaurants and magical. It is centrally located and there is ample transportation to town. We have a 17 and 19 year old and they loved it as much as we did. Great spa as well!
