The hotel is only accessible via boat, which is unique and kind of fun to take their little ferry back and forth. When we arrived at the hotel, my first impression was it was a small average, quaint hotel. However, we did arrive when it was dark. In the morning, I noticed the water displays, including the pool, were in... More

St. Croix is laid back. Do not stay here if you're a jerk that can't accept this hotel is older. It's on its own little island, and they're fixing up rooms. Sure there are little quirks here and there, but you accept it. It has its own little beach, and a bar. The bed was comfortable. It was a good... More

If you value a prime Caribbean location and can survive without many amenities and luxuries, this could be your next beach resort. That is St. Croix and certainly is this hotel. Rooms are basic. Most have good beds, small kitchenette - with cabinets, sink, fridge and microwave - and updated tv and bathroom. Wake up to the sights and sounds... More

We thought this would be fun, to be on a little Cay across from Christiansted. We were right! It was a delightful stay. They have a launch that shuttles Hotel Guests back & forth between the Hotel and the Town - takes 2 minutes and runs 24 hrs/day. The room was very comfortable and clean, with a sofa, chairs, king...

The Hotel on the Cay is like something out of a Fairy Tale. You have to take a Ferry across from Christiansted Pier to a small island. The people and staff there are so interested in making your stay perfect. The restaurant on the Island itself Called "The Harbor Master' has wonderful food. They start serving breakfast at 7:00 am...

This Hotel is one of my Favorites. The hotel is on its own little island. About 7 acres big. Nothing fancy but perfect spot. Water activities and a beautiful beach right out the front door. A five min boat ride and you are with in walking distance of shopping, restaurants and night life.

Stayed at HOTC as part of large wedding party. The rooms are dated and it appears that some maintenance has been deferred for quite a while. Additionally, there are quite a few spaces within the hotel that appear to have no purpose. If you are expecting a resort equal to the Vegas strip or Disney World, do not go. However,... More

Just returned from a great week at the Hotel On The Cay. What a great and unique location... on your own island just a short boat ride to the town and its restaurants and attractions. The Hotel is fairly old and somewhat rustic, but that is part of its charm. Great private Beach with all sorts of recreation available on... More

We totally appreciated the views, fresh breezes, super friendly staff (especially John and Sarah), and having the short one minute boat ride from downtown Christiansted, as well as the beach on site for those times when you are not on the go...the staff has great drivers available if you don't want to rent a car (we did not) and everyone...

I have been traveling to St Croix almost annually since the 70’s. Hotel on the Cay has been my winter retreat that I continue to enjoy. It is located on its own little island that you must take a boat to get to. This is NOT a deluxe property with fancy rooms and amenities. There is no gym, but the... More
