We stayed at the Buccaneer for a week. I liked the grounds, the beaches, and the laid-back atmosphere, but that was about it.
The room looked like it was built in the 50s. It had air conditioning, but the room never really stayed cool. The bed was hard as a rock.
Also, the restaurants were disappointing. They had two open for lunch that were basically snack bars. The one that was open for dinner was way overpriced. The breakfast buffet at the Terrace was good, but I didn't like being pushed into giving a tip for a buffet where I got my own food and drinks.
In addition, the housekeeping service was okay. We had to ask for soap, toilet paper and towels. Again, we were pushed for a tip on the last day of our visit by the housekeeper, who was the fifth one we had during our stay.
There wasn't much to do besides the beach (if you weren't into golf/tennis). Nearby Christiansted was a joke. There were a bunch of overpriced restaurants and shops, and again very little to do outside of visiting the fort.
We have been to other islands and paid less for a better room with more food options. I would say go to the Buccaneer if you want a nicely landscaped resort on St. Croix, but don't go expecting a five-star resort. You could spend less money at Disney and have a better time.
