Buccs offers a one of a kind experience. Starting with the amazing view onto the lagoon from the breakfast desk, the friendly and competent staff and the variety of activities on offer. First time i went i was blown away by the relaxed and calm atmosphere. However, partys at Buccs are legendary and entertainment is great. The pool Pizzas are very yummy as well. Love it and will go back again and again.

Buccaneers is one of the best places I have ever stayed in my life. The accomodation is extremely good value and suitable for backpackers looking for a cheap but clean and beautiful dormitory as well as private accomodation. The location is too beautiful too be described and comes very close to the idea of "paradise". The staff is incredibly nice and makes you feel welcome from the very first day onwards. You will indeed feel like a part of the big Buccaneers family. Buccs is also cooperating closely with many different organisations offering different sorts of activities so be sure you will never get bored. I loved my stay there and everyone who has ever been there knows that they will return one day...
