St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
By Lynn Walker
In 1947 the Armstrong family opened The Buccaneer with 10 guest rooms. Today, the resort is still owned by the Armstrong family, who continue to make it their mission to welcome their guests personally. Every Tuesday evening, a cocktail reception is held at the iconic Sugar Mill, where Elizabeth Armstrong will stop in to mingle and greet as many of her guests as possible. The Buccaneer is legendary for their family friendly accommodations and service. Generations of families have been coming to the Buccaneer for seasonal vacations and will continue to do so for generations to come.
