We hope you will enjoy this review from a couple that Lisa arranged a vacation to the beautiful U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix. St. Croix is the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands at approximately 83 square miles and is located just east of Puerto Rico - about 2-1/2 hour flight from Miami.
Thank you!!! The trip was wonderful and awesome!!! Don’t know where to start…..The Buccaneer was fantastic!!
We ended up getting an upgrade when we got there…had no idea…we ended up in the Doubloons!! Room 353. There are 3 buildings. 4 rooms in each. 2 upper and 2 lower. We were on the upper level. Each room had a patio/balcony. All ocean front. The sunset from our balcony was spectacular.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more in the resort. It was well maintained and everything was so convenient. There were small shuttle vans that you could call to drop you off anywhere on the property. We did opt to walk as much as possible, but a great amenity. The restaurants and food were awesome!! The main restaurant and lounge sat on top of the hill overlooking the ocean where breakfast and dinner was served. On a clear day you could see Puerto Rico, St. Thomas & St. John. The views and sunset were awesome from their too.
The other restaurant was on the beach. They served lunch and dinner. It was just steps from our room. There was entertainment nightly in the lounge. On Monday nights there is a beach BBQ with entertainment. Tuesdays is a meet and greet with the owner Elizabeth Armstrong. We took a sunset sail boat ride one night and went into Christiansted a few times during the afternoons. Also, checked out a couple different beaches in the area. Concierge was very helpful. Buccaneer has their own taxi service too that runs back and forth a few times a day to Christiansted. I think it was $9 for two one-way.
The flights were good. Really liked flying Delta. We had bulkhead seats on the way back (St. Croix to ATL) not on the way down. On the way down we were one row behind bulkhead and on the way back were seated in bulkhead row. What was nice about the bulkhead, you could still put small carryon/purse under seat in front of us. Definitely liked the Delta Comfort too!!
The only negative thing was Travellers Tour. When we got into St. Croix airport, no one was there from Travellers to pick us up. We talked to St. Croix Taxi and they were aware of the driver and said he was having some issues and they would get us to our hotel and settle up with him later. All worked out great. On the return trip to the airport, he did pick us up. We confirmed the day/evening before. We didn’t think the Van was going to make it and just didn’t seem as professional as all the other drivers we had. It seems like the St. Croix Taxi is more reliable and better yet, if you are staying at the Buccaneer just make arrangements with their taxi service.
Sorry this is so long…..but we had a wonderful trip and appreciated everything you did Lisa to set this up!!! Thank you so much!!
