A Pundit's Review! 

The opinionated Bill O'Reilly stayed with us this winter and had this to say to his millions of viewers: "The historic Buccaneer hotel ... great place, family-owned, lots of stuff to do, service is excellent ... If you're looking for a tropical getaway, let's keep it in the family ladies and gentlemen. U.S. Virgin Islands. Excellent place to visit, and help the economy at the same time."

Makeover Highlights
makeover Even our 400-year-old sugar mill received the loving touch of our $5 million makeover! It still serves a modern purpose -- parties, private dinners, weddings -- and is as polished and pristine as its patinaed stones permit. Its restoration symbolized the spirit of the entire renovation: balance our historic heritage with the modern luxuries our guests expect.

The makeover gave guest rooms mahogany furnishings, panel TVs, plush bedding, designer draperies and upholstery, and sleek new baths using marble, glass and wood. The five family
