Renassiance St Croix vs the Buccaneer

Jump to last reply

Hello - we are going to St Croix in a few weeks, and are booked at the Renassiance St Croix. Now I am reconsidering because I found a sale that would make the Buccaneer almost the same price.... if anyone has stayed at either or both of these resorts, can you tell me about the weather and the beaches? I know that the Renassiance is in the rain forest, and am worried that the rain will be a problem. Also, we have small children and so would like a child friendly beach with small/no waves. Waves are influenced by weather, of course, but some locations are just calmer too. Anyone have input?

Thanks!

Melanie
