Greetings from the Hotel General Manager

My family opened The Buccaneer as a small inn in 1947. Our 65th anniversary is this year! The resort celebrates a rich heritage; some of our buildings date to the 17th century, and Alexander Hamilton lived here as a child. But the present-day Buccaneer takes pride in offering luxury, service, and the thriving beauty of our beaches and lush estate. Pleasure and relaxation await you!

Insider Tip
  • Parts of the Great House date from the 1650s, when a Knight of Malta established a tobacco-and-indigo plantation on the site. He situated the Great House slightly behind a hilltop to conceal it from pirates. As a boy, Alexander Hamilton lived there, as did St. Croix's first Danish governor.
Hotel Overview
  • Three beaches
    Arranged on a hillside that slopes to the sea, this family-owned resort features three beaches.
  • Comfortable quarters
    138 luxury accommodations offer panoramic ocean views, furnished balconies and patios. Rooms range from glamorous suites to family accommodations.
  • Golf, dining
    An 18-hole golf course, two pools, and a terrace restaurant with sweeping views cater to a loyal clientele. Breakfast is included.
What to Expect:
  • Family owned and operated since it opened as an 11-room inn in 1948, The Buccaneer is situated on 340 hilly acres between a large lagoon and the Caribbean Sea. Many guests come year after year, passing down loyalty to succeeding generations. Long-time staff members greet repeat visitors like family. Peace and quiet prevail.
Amenity Highlights:
  • The resort features three beautiful, soft-sand beaches. Whistle Beach, accessible only by path, offers tranquil swimming and sunbathing. A close-in reef creates calm-water swimming and snorkeling off Grotto Beach; a freeform pool is adjacent. Centrally located Mermaid Beach includes a casual restaurant and bar. The 18-hole championship golf course overlooks the sea. A complimentary buffet breakfast is served daily in an open-air restaurant in the Great House, with panoramic Caribbean Sea views.
