I NEVER write reviews. NEVER. I feel obligated to let prospective brides (and grooms) know what am AMAZING place this was for my wedding. I had never been to St. Croix and picked it by process of elimination. From the first contact, 9 months before the wedding, Kim Hummers (wedding planner) was on top of everything. I live in NYC and have a high sense of urgency, which Kim exceeded. There was not ONE THING that I would have done differently. She organized everything from when we (and my guests) landed to when we left. The rehearsal dinner, the day of spa appointments, the ceremony, dinner, and brunch the next day was all PERFECT. There were signs for us and well marked directions for my guests. The cars picked everyone up within a few seconds of calling. Everyone was gracious and treated us like we were royalty. We had DJ Q, who played the perfect selection if music. Kim made my wedding the fairy tale I was hoping for. I literally cannot say enough about having your wedding here.

Corinne was amazing! Corinne made a very special day happen in a very short period of time for my wife and I. She made everything very easy and took the tension and stress out of what could have been a very hectic time for us. She made all the arrangements and we had our choice of the vendors for our day and everything was amazing. The venue (our very own private beach), the officiant Louise (so perfectly in tune with our desired ceremony), the photographer Lindsay (captured some of the most amazing moments), were all from Corinne and we even had a violin player playing at the ceremony on the beach. It was all so perfect and we wanted to thank Corinne so much for all the amazing work she did. We were extremely happy with her attention to detail, professionalism, friendliness and availability.

The Buccaneer was more than we could have ever asked for. I would highly recommend them to anyone. I work in the wedding industry and was surprised that the services on the Island matched or exceeded some of the best in the states. The staff was friendly and warm and that extended throughout the week after our wedding as we stayed for our honeymoon. We wouldn't change a thing - the staff - Corrine, Ashley and Ruby were outstanding. Our photographer Lindsay was also amazing. We couldn't be happier with our choice.

We were blown away by the service, professionalism, and friendliness of everyone at the Buccaneer. The wedding planning process was simple, straightforward, and even fun. Corinne took care of everything and deserves a medal for her patience and thoroughness. The actual wedding event was amazing. It was clear that the folks at the Buccaneer have this process down to a science and it made for a smooth event. Even the details that were part of the package deal we very nice. I'm not one to get worked up about centerpiece, but was pleasantly impressed by the quality and tastefulness of these details. Even the outside vendors were great. We especially loved the DJ, and I know no one who has ever said that after their wedding!

Finally, we must praise the entire staff at the Buccaneer. Everyone from the front desk and concierge staff to the wait staff in the restaurant to the guys who never failed to stop and give me a ride up the hill were all just wonderful! They were throughtful and friendly and made life easy. Exactly the people you want to meet while on vacation. We didn't meet anyone at the Buccaneer who did not exemplify these qualities.

The best compliment we could share is the feedback we received from our guests who joined us for our wedding weekend. Everyone told us repeatedly how impressed they were with the facility and the staff. I can't tell you how many times one if our guests said to me, "everyone is just so nice here." And it is true. Thank you for not only making our wedding a very special event, but making all of our guests feel warm and welcome.

The Buccaneer is absolutely the best place to have a destination wedding. The event planners are awesome. They were very professional and provided us with a stress free wedding planning experience. The venue is beautiful, it is a fantastic backdrop for wedding photos. The Chef at the Brass Parrot provided us with a delicious selection of appetizers and entrees, the making for a wonderful reception. The Buccaneer staff was great, they were very helpful, polite and provided first class service 24/7. We plan on going back next year for vacation because we had such a great experience.

Planning a beach wedding from thousands of miles away seems daunting. However with our first communication with Corinne and the Buccaneer staff, they gain our confidence and trust allowing us to enjoy the experience. She recommended the officiant, photographer and florist. All of whom exceeded our expectations of professionalism.
Also my experience at the salon for wedding hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. The food was incredible, the staff have true Caribbean hospitality and our beach wedding photos are dramatic!

Our wedding memories will be a forever treasure do to our selecting the Buccaneer and their fabulous wedding service. Every detail was taken care of and all we had to do was bring the tux and the gown.

The intimacy of the site and the details that the staff took care of made me feel like Cinderella!! The setting was so much more than I expected and I was so happy with the service and the photos. Everyone back home was in awe of the pictorial event and the details of the event. Long flight/connections from where I live, but I would go back in a minute to have my wedding there again.

I was very impressed. I was so nervous about the smallest thing going wrong on my wedding, as most bride's worry about. However, not only was it perfect,it even exceeded my expectations. The staff was excellent and on top of everything. The wedding scenery and set up was like a fairytale. Everyone had a wonderful time and fond memories. It was also very little work on my end. I basically chose what I wanted and they found it and made it happen.

Corinne, the wedding coordinator at the Buccaneer was wonderful and extremely responsive. Everything was perfect. The hotel took care of everything. I picked my vendors & they were wonderful. I had Quiana Adams for photography & MJS Visions for videography. The food at the hotel was great & that included on days that were not wedding related. Very convenient to have everything on one site from the rehearsal dinner to the wedding brunch. Beautiful grounds - perfect for pictures.

My husband and I were married at The Buccaneer in St. Croix last year. We had the "Elope Package" that included all the things necessary for our perfect wedding! The staff was absolutely amazing and handled every detail so that we could just relax and have fun! Neither of us wanted a wedding that would be high stress, but we do have high standards, and The Buccaneer certainly came through on all levels. Fantastic local flowers, transportation, a great photographer, dinner reservations, every single detail - even my hair and makeup (which I was super nervous about) were a breeze. I highly recommend getting married here and we can't wait to come back for our anniversary & to race St. Croix 70.3 again!

The staff at the Buccaneer Resort were the NICEST people we have every met!!! My family's flight was delayed, causing them to miss our wedding ceremony. The resort was willing to postpone our ceremony to the next day! They even upgraded our meal because some family members were not able to make it to the island.

Due to the rain, we were married on the balcony of our room. Corinne and Nadia made it look absolutely beautiful! They paid attention to every detail. They even had our wedding song playing on the iPod. They also had sparkling grape juice for me because they remembered I do not drink. We didn't have to worry about a thing!!!!

The staff accommodated our every need. They collaborated well with the photographer & musician. The food and cake were delicious! The bouquets and floral arrangements were gorgeous!

Despite the circumstances, they really made our day special!!!

I wanted to come home to have my wedding. After visiting the island, my husband fell in love with the look and feel of the Buccaneer. A true island icon, the Buccaneer is lush, green and welcoming. The sandy beaches with the crystal blue water are breathtaking. All of our guests had a wonderful time staying at the Buccaneer. As well, our wedding was truly memorable with close friends and family surrounding us. I've been to many weddings in my life, and I have to say, this was hands down the best wedding. Our guests still rave about it and we find they compare other weddings to ours. to top if off, the food was to die for! Most times the food is so-so, but not here. Everything was cooked to perfection with plenty to go around. Well done, Bucc, well done! And a huge thank you to our planner, Corinne.... we wouldn't of had as memorable a day without her!

A control freak by nature, I didn't have a thing to worry about on my day except for walking down the isle. Corinne took care of everything for me.... including helping to get my son, and ring bearer, back to our room with the baby sitter. It's not just the picture perfect and dream thought out day that has me recommending the Buccaneer, but it was all the little things they handled before I could even think to ask.

Everything was wonderful. We knew Corinne had everything under control and so we never once had to worry. During the time we were planning with Corinne, she was nothing but professional and easy to talk with. She was amazing and if I could, I would have packed her in my suitcase and brought her home with us. LOL!!

In all honesty, the food was delicious, the staff was amazing and the day was a dream come true. Thank you to The Buccaneer and thank you to Corinne! There isn't anything we would have changed.

Can not say enough good things about hosting 33 of our friends and family for our destination wedding at The Buccaneer. Planning this from afar, the process could not have gone any smoother. Corinne Farinola was a dream to work with, and went above and beyond to answer every question and make every wish come true. The entire staff at The Buccaneer made all of us feel like family, offering a warm environment and friendly service that you would be hardpressed to find at any other hotel or resort. All in all, The Buccaneer could not have made my wedding any more perfect than it was, or the entire process any easier!

This resort is tucked away on the island of St. Croix and an ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC place for a destination wedding. Any couple considering a tropical destination should speak with Carolyn at The Buccaneer. She was our wedding planner for our June,2009 wedding with 20+ guests and I can say without hesitation that she made my dream wedding possible. Every small detail was taken care of and all the planning was done via e-mail/computer. From a bride's standpoint this wedding was everything I wanted it to be, without any of the drama or disasterous planning to deal with--Carolyn took care of us and our families. I highly highly recommend The Buccaneer and their special events staff.

(I didn't go in to detail about the Flowers from Gloria at Antillies Lillies, our awesome DJ Erik , and the Catering and perfect Reception put together by Dennis at the Buc --however, ALLLLLLLL of them surpassed our expectations. And again Carolyn was able to put me in contact with them and coordinate everything beautifully)

Absolutely amazing...the venue, the staff, the music, the food....EVERYTHING! Beautiful grounds, friendly service, and good food....the quality of a high-end chain hotel with the intimacy of a family owned resort. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!

We had a fantastic wedding at The Buccaneer. Destination weddings can always be daunting because you're not sure of what you're going to end up with, however, one doesn't have to worry at this destination. The food was impeccable - all my guests said it's the best food they've ever had at a wedding (and the best vegetarian dish - we had a green curry tofu.) The service was amazing - all the staff was attentive, friendly, and accommodating to everyone - and we had a large group - about 70 people, and didn't receive any complaints.

The wedding planners, Kimberly and Corrine, were fantastic. They coordinated the fire dancers and steel drum band for my welcome party the day before my wedding. We had heavy apps and specialty cocktails, and everyone had a great time. The day of the wedding, Kim was completely on top of timing, and I walked down the aisle exactly at 5p. Steve Katz played acoustic guitar during my ceremony and reception and did an amazing job. Gloria from Antillies Lilies provided flowers and the arch we were married under.

For our reception, we had it in the brass parrot and cocktail hour was on the balcony. I preferred to have an indoor/outdoor venue so we'd have one area with AC, and I'm SO happy we did. The balcony did get a lot of use, but it was great to have the dance floor inside. Our DJ, DJ Knight was attentive, and played every song we requested. The dance floor was packed the entire time) See our full wedding video below regarding the dance floor!)

Overall, we had a fantastic, memorable wedding experience and it was in large part due to the staff at The Buccaneer. We wanted it to be a huge party with all of our closest family and friends, and they helped make that happen.

Below is a link to my wedding video. A wedding weekend is way more fun than just one night - so consider having it at The Buccaneer if that's what you're looking for!

We had a 60+ person wedding at the Buccaneer and worked with Corrine. We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception on the property, and we really felt as though we were the number one priority for the resort. Everything went off very smoothly, and we must say that the food served by the Brass Parrot was really exceptional (coming from NYC standards!). Highly recommend.

I am so happy I chose The Buccaneer for my wedding. I was looking for a place to relax and have a worry free wedding, and this was it. My family enjoyed their stay. The staff was very accommodating and provided excellent service. They even made arrangements for a pre event sailing trip for the family and greeted us on the dock with dry towels. Everything I could have wanted was included and taken care of so that I did not have to worry about a thing.

If getting married on St. Croix, you won't find anywhere better then the Buccaneer. Overall quality of the property, service, venue options - definitely the best on island. From the start, the wedding planner Corinne, worked with me tirelessly to make sure I had everything I wanted. I will say the wedding package options are straight forward and rather cookie cutter but it doesn't mean they aren't willing to go outside the box to make your vision happen (of course - there was $$ attached to this). Corinne has great relationships w/ vendors on island and can pull the pieces together for you (bands, DJ, florists, etc). Since i planned from NYC, she helped to make the process seamless on the ground and when I arrived on island a few days before the wedding we were ready to go. Beyond her professionalism, Corinne shines with her great listening skills & her upbeat, always friendly attitude. I did have concerns up front of people being on island time i.e. a little slower then us northerners are used to... not Corinne! She is quick, to the point & gets the job done. Her attention to detail is amazing and nothing was missed. She took the stress off me on wedding day and was the hero behind the curtain in making sure everything ran smooth. She handled the bridesmaids and hair/spa bookings on wedding day, made sure the transportation was where it needed to be and that the groomsmen were behaving, the guests were seated and the guitarist was playing on cue, she put all my details/decor out as requested, made sure we had appetizers during cocktails while taking photos, and even brushed the sand off my feet after the ceremony. I might even say she held the rain off until the ceremony and cocktail hour were over before we headed under the roof for the reception. She truly did it all and I highly recommend anyone planning an event on island to consider reaching out to Corinne at the Buccaneer.
