Fodor's Expert Review The Buccaneer

5007 Estate Shoys, Shoys, Saint Croix, 00824, U.S. Virgin Islands Fodor's Choice

Aimed at travelers who want everything at their fingertips, this family-friendly resort has sandy beaches, multiple restaurants, golf, tennis, a spa, and swimming pools. A palm-tree-lined main drive leads to the large, pink main building atop a hill; the rest of the resort sits on the grounds of a 340-acre former sugar plantation, where guest facilities and quarters are scattered about the manicured lawns. Spacious rooms are tropical in style, with tile floors, four-poster beds, massive wardrobes of pale wood, marble baths, and local art. The beachside Doubloon rooms are the largest and are steps from the sand, but you can be perfectly comfortable no matter where you stay. The resort abuts an 18-hole waterfront golf course and has an excellent tennis center with eight courts, a pro shop, lessons, and night play
