“quaint small resort with fabulous beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

The Buccaneer Beach Club is a small resort but the rooms are all large suites with kitchens and living rooms and large bathrooms. The place is clean,well maintained, and the staff is attentive and polite. The resort has its own beach which is small by comparison to larger resorts but it is clean sandy and suits the clientele well. I can't attest to the value as I was here on business and so didn't pay for my accommodation. The resort also has a small outdoor pool with adequate deck space for sunning. Importantly it is a quiet resort, slept with my windows open at night to the sounds of frogs and gentle breezes and the occasional rain.

The Buccaneer had been recommended to me by a business associate and I was not disappointed. Stayed there in both March 2013 and again in November 2013. Great amenities and wonderful service in a quiet and picturesque location. Pleasant location to sleep with distant soft sound of waves rolling onto the beach. A number of restaurants along the neighboring beaches and near-by, including one next door. Staff were always helpful. The suites had new furnishings from my first visit. I'd recommend the Buccaneer to my business colleagues and friends.

Room Tip: Had a upper suite, so it was exceptionally quiet.

Excellent location, is there any better in Antigua compared to the price? Wonderful surroundings and a beautiful garden with direct access to the best beach on the island! Well equipped rooms and a Restaurant with excellent food next to Buccaneer.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony and not terrace if you want to sit in peace ;)

I traveled to Antigua on business in November and stayed here. All wishes fulfilled! Clean, serene, great service, helpful staff! Lovely quiet place to stay on the beautiful Dickenson Bay. Each room is self-contained, with all amenities necessary (including wine glasses, wine opener!). Exceptional accommodation - all rooms air-conditioned with TVs in both living and bedrooms, clean spacious bathroom with perfect lighting.
If you feel for a drink/meal, you are steps away from Coconut Grove, Putters, Peppaz & Lime, etc.
You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay on Antigua, Totally Recommend... Thumbs up!

We were very lucky to find this resort . As a family of 4 we had a fantastic cottage right on the beach> the rooms were well equipped, comfortable and a lot of space. We also had full kitchen and a living room and a very nice outside area. Beautiful beach just out the door . The pool an gardens were well keep and beautiful. Personnel was very helpful and warm. the hotel is very feel located on dickinson bay and very close to the town and the airport. There are restaurants so close that you can walk . And also a convenient grocery store in case you want to eat in your cottage
Would recommend to everybody .

Room Tip: Best rooms the ones on the beach

Excellent hotel with good self-catering facilities. Friendly staff and close proximity of bars and restaurants offering good service - but prices on the high side. I would definitely stay again. Ideal for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Prices of meals in local restaurants are fairly expensive.

We stayed at the BBC for 6 nights after spending a week sailing in the BVI. It was a joy to have a spacious place to stay with air conditioning. The kitchen area was fine for our needs of some toast in the morning on a couple of occasions and the bed was comfortable. Our room was on the upper floor at the corner of the resort and our balcony look towards the pool, but trees mainly covered the view, which made it feel more secluded.

The grounds were kept in good condition and it was nice to see that they had signs on the various plants/trees telling you about them.

The pool was good as well, although we spent more time at the beach, which is on the doorstep and quiet enough. The only day the beach was busy and not really that busy was the day that 3 cruise ships were in town, but you could quite easily move 5 yards down the beach and find an almost empty spot of beach if you wanted to.

Staff and owner were fantastic and always willing to help with any queries or with booking trips for us. We would definitely go back there again if I get back to Antigua.

Outside of the BBC we ate mainly at the Coconut grove for breakfast and a few lunch/dinners.
We also ate at Pepperz N’ Lime, which was good value and did some good margaritas. And I’m not normally a fan of plantain, but there plantain chips was tasty.

We had Fish & Chips from the van that appears next door on Wednesday & Fridays, which we took back to our room with a bottle of wine from reception one night, which was great.

On our last night we walked a little further, about 10 mins down the road to the Italian La Bussola and had a lovely meal, it was a shame we left it to our last night as we would of gone back again. The only down side was as it is fairly open there was a lot of insects flying around so make sure you spray yourself well before going.

Lastly if you walk past where La Bussola is any go to Runaway beach you will find a lovely stretch of beach that will almost be deserted. We saw about 8 people at most there and one bar. Very much a robinson crusoe moment.
