The Buccaneer, St Croix’s Legendary Resort, Is Open

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 12, 2020

The pastel pink walls; the rolling green fairways; the graceful twilight steps of a Moko Jumbie. 

Since 1947, The Buccaneer resort in St Croix has been the essence of the St Croix vacation: the beauty, the culture, the sport. 

And now the resort is back, as the US Virgin Islands has reopened its doors for tourism.

And the property has adapted to the new realities of travel with a host of new health and safety protocols. 

That includes masks or face coverings required when interacting with hotel employees, including upon entering at the main gate. 

The gate attendant will take temperatures of guests to check for fevers. 

And the resort has tapped an epidemiologist to help implement the new protocols on the property, from the provision of hand sanitizer across the resort to sanitizing and cleaning property-wide throughout the day.

That’s along with features like downloadable menus, socially-distanced beach and pool chairs; a reduced capacity in the Grotto pool; and to-go food delivered to your door instead of room service (see the full list of COVID-19 protocols here). 

In other words, the travel experience has, for now, adapted for the times. 

Of course, what hasn’t changed is the endless beauty of the resort: the three spectacular beaches; the sparkle of the Caribbean sea; and what is one of the most beautiful golf courses in the entire Caribbean. 

You’ll have your Cruzan cocktails; your endless afternoons on the sand; your 18 holes of green hills edged by Caribbean water; your evening steel pan.

You’ll get the full Buccaneer experience. 

And that means you’ll get a full-fledged Caribbean classic, the kind of authentic resort that represents the best of the US Virgin Islands travel experience, one where you’ll understand what this beautiful chain of islands is all about.
