The hotel is older and could use some updating. The first room I was in was not acceptable and we moved to a different room and we were happy. The location of the hotel is fantastic. We will go back again.

We spent a week here and loved every minute of it! The staff is very friendly and helpful but especially the boat captains! We enjoyed the hotel beach and if you have little ones, this beach is perfect for you. No waves, lots of little fish swimming about, soft sand, and we never had more than 10 people on it... More

Everyone was very friendly - the room had an excellent view and the beach was perfect. If you want a relaxed laid back "island" vacation near... More

Hotel on the Cay in St. Croix is a wonderful place for a reasonably priced vacation in paradise. It is everyone's dream private island. Cruzans are reserved by nature, but they get to know you quickly and give you wonderful friendly service. I really felt looked after. Nice rooms with kitchenette. Comfortable mattresses & clean. The beach is a jewel.... More

Now, there is no parking but with a little of creativity you can find a spot up the road from the King Cristian Hotel just past Sonyas.But the location... More
