We traveld with a group of 11 for a wedding. There was a child age 8 in the group. The wedding was picture perfect. We enjoyed everthing about this private island. The rooms need some work with A/C and Plumbing (nothing major) but they were cozy and clean. All rooms have a nice size kitchenette with micorwave, small fridge, sink, coffee maker and dishes. The food, pina coladas were the best, the short ferry boat ride to the island and Christainsted. Perfect location across from Christiansted, for great shopping, and restaurants. Some of our favorites were Rum Runners and Angry Mikes for food Ivys for ice cream and Soynas, IB Designs, Hot Heads, and Purpe Papaya for shopping and off course the Tues. Night All you can eat BBQ right at the Harbor Master Cafe Restaurant on Hotel on the Cay. The food was awesome and the entertainment was excellent. If you want to relax and don't want to eat out all the time on Sundays they shuttle you for a small charge to the grocery store so you buy food you can make your own sandwhiches and just enjoyed relaxing at the beach instead. Another couple staying at the Hotel who travel their regularly for many years told us it is the "Best Kept Secret" and we agree!! We relaxed at the beach on Hotel on the Cay every day and when the cruise ships came in you could escape to the pool for more privacy that is for quest only and also has a fabulous veiw of the ocean. We also enjoyed the Sweeny Island Safari tour and enjoyed the free shuttle on Friday to Divi Resort to go to the Casino. There was so much to do we weren't able to get everything in we wanted like a trip to Buck's Island or a ferry to St. Thomas and St. Johns. We snorkled right at Hotel on the Cay and rented pattle boats. The staff was very friendly and we made great friends during our stay and already miss them. My 8 year old daughter said it was one of her best vacations ever and can't wait to go back to swim in the ocean and snorkle. We are already talking about going back very soon!!! Also, if you are considering a destination wedding at St. Croix you will not be disappointed we used Seaside Weddings (Jeness) as our wedding coordinator and she was affordable and grea, never had to worry about anything!!
