We truly enjoyed our stay at The Buccaneer Beach & Golf Resort. The room was nice and clean. View from balcony was amazing great ocean view. Loved the private beach and cocktails. Walking trails were a great morning workout. Food was excellent! Both breakfast and dinner. Can't wait to stay here again!

The rooms are amazing, the staff goes above and beyond. Great island experience. This website is asking for more chars: Bring tip money, there are many friendly locals that will help you and a few dollars here and there makes for a great exchange. It's not like the main land, don't make a big thing of it and don't expect them to go overboard about it.

I have stayed at the Buccaneer twice and of the four hotels I have stayed at in St. Croix, it is my favorite. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well maintained. I have not had time to take advantage of all their activities but there is much I'd love to do. Their buffet breakfast is a great way to start the day.

The PROS: The rooms have amazing views. The rooms are very large (but could use some updating). The pools and beaches on the property are very nice. The atmosphere leads to a very relaxing vacation. The golf course is very nice and offers a challenging course with amazing views. It’s not a bad deal overall. The CONS: You are forced to use the on-site taxi services which are extremely expensive and there is no rhyme or reason for the pricing (our taxi from the airport to the hotel was $90 but our taxi from the hotel to airport was $150 - when we said something the driver simply said well that’s what it costs). You will save hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars if you rent a car (we went to dinner on the other side of the island - the round trip can fare was $240). Breakfast is complimentary and is a buffet. Yet they give you a bill and ask for 20 or 25 percent tip on some made up dollar amount they say the breakfast costs (for a buffet where you go get your own food). Lastly, there is nothing to do on the property after 8pm any night. And all good service stops at 8pm. Overall, not a bad deal but rent a car!!!

We visit Mermaid Beach and restaurant at the Buccaneer every year when we visit the island in February, this year we were blessed to come back again in August and actually stay at the buccaneer for the first time, the resort is beautiful and the location is amazing, but what truly made our trip was Mayra. Mayra is the sweetest most attentive hostess and took such wonderful care of us every day on the beach, she made us feel special and even remembered our toddler son from our visit in February. It is service and people like this that create return patrons, and when we come back in February we are looking forward to visiting our island friend, Thank you Ms. Mayra!
