About Us

The Buccaneer is the Caribbean's Longest Running Family- Owned Resort

Elizabeth A. Armstrong


It is with pleasure that I welcome you to The Buccaneer’s website, and I hope that our site will entice you to visit in the near future. The Armstrong family has owned and operated the resort since my grandparents opened the doors in 1947, and we celebrated 70 years of hospitality in 2017. I hope that you will take time to read The Buccaneer’s fascinating history in the pages of this website.

Over the years we have taken great pleasure in the high honors that we have received from the travel industry, as well as a multitude of “World’s Best” accolades. Our deepest satisfaction comes from the glowing reports of satisfied guests, many of whom we have been proud to serve for generations. You have our enduring promise that we will strive to meet and exceed the highest standards of taste, elegance and our guests’ discerning preferences. Our pledge is best expressed in our mission statement:

"Our mission is for every guest to return to The Buccaneer and become part of The Buccaneer family. We pledge to provide world-class service and to share our heritage, warmth and friendliness, ensuring that every visitor becomes an ambassador for St. Croix."

I look forward to greeting you personally during your stay, perhaps at the Tuesday cocktail party at our historic sugar mill or on my weekly nature walk. All of us at The Buccaneer hope to welcome you in the future.

Warm regards,
Elizabeth A. Armstrong
