In September 2013 we stayed at the Buccament Bay resort on the island of St Vincent. It’s a five star resort in an idyllic location. It’s not surprising it gets such rave reviews from people who have stayed there. The staff at Buccament Bay are friendly and helpful. They do everything they can to make guests feel welcome. It’s the excellent staff that turn a really good resort into a really great resort.
The Indigo dive centre is run from the resort and I got a few dives in. Lisa and I also did some snorkeling through a bat cave with the Indigo dive team. Alex and Jay and all the team at Indigo Dive looked after us well. Alex accompanied me on the dives as dive instructor and diving buddy. He’s a knowledgeable guy and he pointed out some of the many sites and sea creatures that can be found around the coast of St Vincent.
The Buccament Bay literature states that they employ world class chefs in their restaurants and I certainly wouldn’t dispute that. The food we had was excellent on every occasion. We had steaks that were cooked to perfection and signature dishes from chefs in the Safran restaurant. And if you get the chance, try out a Jack’s Delight cocktail invented by Sean (or Shawn not sure of the spelling), one of Bucc Bay’s very own bartenders.
Included in the cost of the stay were several trips. We took a sunset cruise. Most days you can see a spectacular sunset but sometimes dolphins will swim with the cruise boat. Unfortunately, on our trip the dolphins didn’t want to play out. We also took a trip to on a location set from the film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean – Curse of the Black Pearl’. That day out also included a trip out to Dark View Falls.
