Simply a wonderful time. The beach was the highlight with all the marine life teeming about and the nightlife was just as good. We stayed in an RCI room and it was good for our little group. One main bedroom and living/eating area. Small kitchenette. Rooms with views of the historic Christiansted harbor makes for romance and or just scenic... More

Yes, the food is pricey, the quality is so-so. the views are quite nice as you look back over Christianstedtown, and the mountains of the North shore. All of the local folks are great ( with one exception "Wendy" known issue. Don't know why the owners still allow her to harass guests... All -in- All, great people, great views, and... More

Had breakfast here 2 mornings while staying at Hotel on the Cay. The menu is limited and pricey. Expect to wait a bit for your food. We had omelets and juice. Most omelets are priced $10 or more and you only get toast with it. The food was very good but not use to spending $40 for breakfast for 2.

Nice beach. Short three minute ferry ride from the town. Ferry ride is free for hotel guests. Located on the Cay is one hotel called Hotel on the Cay. There is also a restaurant and bar located at the beach which is not affiliated with the hotel.

We stayed at the Hotel on the Cay for my wife's birthday and spent most of our vacation on the beach at Protestant Cay. We love the clean beach, they manicure it every morning. You just take a $5 ferry ride from the dock, right off the board walk. They have plenty of chairs for rent if you are not... More

We stayed at Hotel on the Cay for a week and loved it! It is an older, smaller hotel and probably needs some updating, but it is very clean and comfortable. The views from the rooms are gorgeous. The hotel grounds, pool, and beach are also beautiful. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. The ferry service... More

This tiny island is actually too small to be interesting but it really is worth a visit - sailing 4 minutes in the ferry brings you to see Christiansted in a new perspective. Having your dinner on the beach at dusk is a must...

We had a great time at the Cay. Snorkeling and swimming. We also rent pedal boat. Beach was clean and clear water. The small ferry was very good.

We've been here several times. The water is clear. It is a nice place to relax on the beach. There is food and drink available. If all the "crab guy" did was play music it would be fine, but he has to do these hermit crab races. He screams the same words over and over and over. You can hear... More
