Guest Write About Their Stay At The Buccaneer

"Everyone is so nice, it feels like staying at a friend's gorgeous vacation house."
Rory Kennedy, Ooctober 2012

"We've been coming to St. Croix since 1973. The Buccaneer has never looked or felt better, seems always to have been upgraded everywhere. The only other property I ever found the staff as friendly was at a Ritz-Carlton."

"...We returned to The Buccaneer to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary since we had honeymooned there all those years ago. It was beautiful then, and it is even more beautiful now. Our only regret was that we waited 41 years to return. We plan on sharing the magic of your wonderful hotel with friends and family and anyone else we may meet."
Sandy and Vincent
"Now that we're home again, I'd like to take a moment to thank you and Linda Janes for your very helpful advice and assistance in the days leading up to our first visit to St. Croix and The Buccaneer (Feb 25 -March 5), with matters such as airport transfers and first-night dinner reservations. And our eternal gratitude goes to whomever made the decision to upgrade us to a Deluxe Ocean Front room! As 25-time visitors to Bermuda, and having stayed and/or dined a number of times at the "best" hotels there, I must say that I believe The Buccaneer either equals or exceeds them in all aspects of consideration and enjoyment to the hotel guest. We just cannot think of any area where The Buccaneer fell short. So, on behalf of myself and my wife, Debbie, many thanks for a great vacation. We'll be back."

"I stayed in your hotel about two years ago with my parents, and I loved it so much that now I would like to come back for my honeymoon..."

"My wife Sue and I ... spent a great deal of time surfing the web as I indicated and finally chose your resort hotel based on your website and the reviews we read. We had a really marvelous time and would like to return someday. We were particularly struck by the attitude of your entire staff. You and your guests are very well served by these pleasant, helpful professionals. I have traveled the world extensively and can honestly say that the Buccaneer staff has mastered the art of customer service to a degree that I have not previously experienced.

Bottom line: across the board, we could not have had a better experience."
Sue and Randy
"I would like to share a little bit about my outstanding stay at The Buccaneer. First, I would like to tell you about the amount of research that I put toward my vacations. I get to travel so few weeks a year that I try to do everything to insure a most memorable experience. I picked YOUR resort, not the island. We simply chose to stay for the wonderful things we had read about The Buccaneer.

We checked in on Sunday, August 24 and had learned that Emmy had upgraded us to an oceanfront room right on the beach. That was splendid, but even more so was the champagne chilling in our room waiting for us. I had e-mailed your resort to let them know it was our second anniversary. Large resorts would have never added such special touches! Thank you for thinking of us.

The service was impeccable to say the least! Marcia at the front desk and Emmy in concierge made dinner reservations and excursion arrangements for us all week. One evening I was telling Marcia about how much I wanted a lobster and five minutes later she had arranged a cab and we had dinner reservations for lobster! Your bartenders, wait staff for every meal, pool personnel (Lori and Paul are just fabulous) are just all to wonderful to mention. I just couldn't imagine having a better time anywhere! Thank so much for providing above and beyond excellent service. We will return next year and recommend you to everyone we know!"

My adult daughter and I stayed at the Buccaneer and couldn't have been more pleased. The location is perfect, just a little east of C'sted. We were pleasantly surprised by a significant room upgrade with spectacular views of the Caribbean. We were always greeted with a smile by everyone...

One of My Favorite Places on Earth!
My family began taking trips to St. Croix and The Buccaneer when I was just a child, but it was this hotel that kept my parents going back to that particular island for many vacations over the years. Now, with my own children, I can understand why. It's outstandingly beautiful, comfortable, safe,...

Great relaxing Winter break
The Buccaneer is a family-operated hotel on a beautiful site on St. Croix, two miles east of Christiansted. There are several beautiful beaches, two pools, tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course on site. The rooms are spacious, confortable and well-maintained, and the food at the three restaurants are very good...

Perfect get-away
Our stay at the Buccaneer was much more than we expected - from the rum punch welcome at check-in to the exquisite views, hassle free atmosphere and attentive staff. The property is expansive with three beaches, four restaurants, a golf course and tennis courts... Even though the resort was full while we were there, you had plenty of private space... The fact that the property is family owned was obvious in the service. Other nice touches included free beach and game equipment and breakfast...

25th wedding anniversary
Yesterday my wife (Heidi) and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at The Buccaneer. We had the most wonderful time, and entirely because of the incredibly friendly and helpful staff, starting with the reservations manager and all the way through waitresses and cleaning staff.

The attention to detail was impressive. The smiles, the way people knew our names and who we were, was just so special. The room was gorgeous, spacious, beautifully decorated, and a bottle of champagne was delivered on arrival...

"Dear Mrs. Armstrong. Thanks for the informative tour. In addition to the information, it was tangible evidence of your hands-on leadership. Wonderfully managed across the board. All employees seem to have internalized the mission statement. Bravo! All of the wait persons & concierges seemed to thoroughly enjoy our 14 month old grandson's antics. That does much for grandparents hearts."
