Ghosts of the past at The Buc­ca­neer

Vacations & Travel - - Cruise news -

Es­tab­lished in 1653 as a French manor house, The Buc­ca­neer is now one of the many leg­ends on the is­land of St Croix, the largest of three US Vir­gin Is­lands. You can still see the old su­gar mill, the cot­ton house, and the Hamil­ton Wing in the re­sort’s main build­ing, is named after Alexan­der Hamil­ton, who lived here. These days, The Buc­ca­neer is an award-win­ning, world-class beach and golf re­sort, with 138 spa­cious, el­e­gant guest rooms, sprin­kled around the prop­erty from the hill­top Great House down to the ocean’s edge with its white sand beaches. There is also the six-bed­room Buc­ca­neer Beach House for groups or large fam­i­lies. Fill your days with fun and games with the 18-hole golf course, eight ten­nis courts, three beaches and swim­ming pool, with scuba lessons, crab races, his­tory and na­ture walks and a whole lot more mixed in with a bit of shop­ping at the hotel or in town – just five min­utes away. The Buc­ca­neer is a mem­ber of His­toric Ho­tels of Amer­ica. the­buc­ca­neer.com
