We had heard alot of amazing things about 'Buccs' and we were not disappointed!

They have the most beautiful camp site and facilities, everything is clean and the staff are super friendly.

We were so surprised at the size! It's almost resort like! And you cannot get a better location.

They certainly live up to their reputation

Stayed: April 2018, travelled as a couple

The cottage itself is really nice and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped. The bedrooms were big as well as the bathroom.
The view was really nice (overlooking the river and sea)
The cottage would have been perfect if it had been more secluded. The park itself is really big and caters mostly to backpackers and surfers. Too large scaled for our taste.
They offer dinner on a set menu. The food tasted good, however next day everyone in our group had some sort of stomach issues.
The walk to the beach is not far. Not suitable for wheelchairs/strollers/etc. The beach is fantastic.

Situated over a lagoon with views of the beach and surrounding dunes is Buccaneers. This is a very nice hostel, especially if you have your own transportation. Arrival by shuttle somewhat limits how much you get to see of the surrounding area. The hostel is nice, good food, plenty of opportunities to drink, a pool, volleyball, kayaks, surfing, bird watching, animals (the monkeys coming over the roof in the morning sounds like a stampede!). The people are very nice, facilities clean and neat. Well worth a stop if you need some beach time.

Stayed 2 nights in a sea view bungalow. Room was just the right size, clean and the views were just incredible. Only downside is that the curtains are light and white so it gets incredibly bright early in the morning.

Staff was generally friendly and food was excellent! Had a great time and would highly recommend.
