Hotel Overview

Completely self-contained, The Buccaneer offers a challenging 18-hole golf course, 8 superb tennis courts, 3 exquisite beaches, 4 restaurants, water sports center, health spa, and fitness center, all located on a 340 acre tropical estate.

Spacious, elegant accommodations are placed throughout the property with expansive terraces and impressive views. The Great House main building sits atop a hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the Christiansted Harbor.

This resort is constructed around buildings which date to 1653, its architecture and history reflect the rich heritage of St. Croix. The Buccaneer has been offering timeless Caribbean hospitality since 1947.


From the Sixteenth Century to now...

The Buccaneer is a completely modern hotel with a fascinating historical background. It was in 1653 that Charles Martel, a Knight of Malta, constructed the first building on Estate Shoys where The Buccaneer is located. This French Greathouse, which overlooks one of the swimming pools, was placed out of sight of the sea to protect from roving foes. Later, after the Danes bought the island in 1733, Governor von Prock built his home on the estate, turning the French Greathouse into a sugar factory and erecting the sugar mill which is as it was in the days when sugar was king. Michael Shoy, from whom the area known as Estate Shoys received its name, bought the estate from von Prock and began growing cotton. Later the Heyliger Company raised cattle here Finally in 1948, the Armstrong family, who had owned and operated the cattle estate since 1922, opened The Buccaneer for business with eleven guest rooms. It was the first hotel in St. Croix to be built and operated by an island family.

Guests, known as "continentals," made a two-day trip from the mainland to stay there and often mixed their own drinks, helped rake the beach, paint furniture, and plan meals. In the early days, before modern tourism attractions, guests gathered nightly for cocktails. Today, The Buccaneer offers live music and fine dining for nightlife diversions, but maintains the repertoire of cocktails popular among early guests, including Cruzan Confusion, Raising Cane, Caribbean Sunset and Jump-Up-and-Kiss-Me.

Guest rooms, which slowly and steadily grew in number to meet the demands of increasing business, were named after the coin of the day during the swashbuckling buccaneer era, including Lucky Farthings, Pretty Penny, Pieces of Eight and Doubloons, a tradition that continues with the recent opening of the new luxury Doubloons.

Under the leadership of Robert Douglas Armstrong, the son of the founders of The Buccaneer, the resort became one of the world's top resort hotels, won numerous awards and became an icon in the Caribbean tourism industry. Mr. Armstrong passed away on Saturday, May 21, 2005 following a much admired 47 year career.His children, Douglas, Robert and Elizabeth, continue the family tradition of managing the esteemed resort in the gracious tradition he established.  Although The Buccaneer is a great deal larger than when it first opened, it still retains the warm and intimate atmosphere of the original estate.
