About The Buccaneer

The Buccaneer has a warm, personal ambiance, with a boutique-size 138 rooms and suites located throughout its 340-acre estate: in the signature pink Great House, on two of the resort's beaches, and on ridges overlooking the ocean and gently-rolling golf greens.  The resort features three restaurants including St. Croix's leading Terrace restaurant, known for innovative dining and views of Christiansted; three Caribbean beaches and two swimming pools; spa with a full range of body treatments; a sporty golf course for serious as well as casual golfers; an eight-court tennis center named one of the Caribbean's best by Tennis magazine, and a two-mile nature and fitness trail. A designer clothing boutique, general store and fitness room complete the self-contained destination resort.

The Buccaneer is recognized by the National Trust as a Historic Hotel of America. Its history dates to the 17th century when it was a Knights of Malta manor house and later the home of young Alexander Hamilton. Parts of the ancient buildings are still in use at the resort. The Buccaneer was established as one of the Caribbean's first hotels in 1947 by the Armstrong family, Cruzans since the 1600s. Over the past six decades, the hotel has grown from an 11-room inn into a 138-room destination resort, now owned and managed by the grandchildren of the original founders.  Under the leadership of their granddaughter, General Manager Elizabeth Armstrong, the resort pays homage to its history while keeping pace with the tastes and demands of its loyal clientele.
