Hotel On the Cay is the PERFECT Caribbean getaway. It's an island off the island of St Croix...can it get any cooler than that?!! The hotel is a bit outdated but it's kept clean and nice. Our room had a mini-fridge and toaster over which was nice. The location is incredible. It's right on a sandy beach. You can go... More

I stayed at The Hotel on the Cay from April 16-20. I'm not a person who is very hard to please, but when it comes to travel I do like to get what I pay for. With that said, I think for what I was looking for and my budget for the trip, this hotel was an excellent choice. HONEST... More

There's a certain thrill that you get the first time you arrive at the ferry pick up location and see the little boat crossing over to pick you up. Its also pretty cool to think that you'll be staying on an island...across the bay from another island. The grounds are well kept and the beach is pretty awesome. The beach... More

My husband and I just got back from a week at Hotel on the Cay. It was wonderful! The hotel is older, but it is clean and very quiet. The hotel could use a little TLC as it is older, and could use some repairs. But it is in a great location, the people are all very nice that work... More

I was initially disappointed due to size of unit and TV cable and phone were broken. We reported the broken items. Never heard from anyone about repairing the entire week. We fixed the cable so we could have tv. Grounds were in need of repairs. Location was great and beach was kept raked and clean. Boat shuttle was the best.... More

This is an excellent hotel for the laid back traveler. The hotel has the best location on the island. It is a quick, free two minute ferry ride to the boardwalk and downtown Christiansted. Great for going to the bars and restaurants at night. The snorkeling from the beach was amazing: starfish, blue spotted eagle rays, stingrays, and turtles! The... More

I have stayed at the hotel on the cay several times now and am actually in the process of another trip back there! The view is amazing and the privacy of our own "private island hotel" can't be matched! Take the ferry back and forth to town and fall in love with STX!

The Hotel is located on a small Island just outside Christiansted. A small boat will take you back and forward free of charge. The Hotel offers a nice Beach, the only Beach in Christiansted, and as a Guest of the Hotel you have free Sunbeds on the Beach. The Hotel is kept clean, and so are the surrounding areas. All...

Stayed at HOC from april 6th-13th and had a great time. I read many reviews and must say they are mostly accurate. We had a suite which accommodates up to 6 people (it was perfect for us as a couple - he sleeps late- I get up early - didn't disturb each other). The couch in the living room area... More
