Overall I'd have to say the rating should be a 4.5 vice a 5. The hotel is a bit dated but in their defense it's mentioned on the web site that one shouldn't expect a luxury hotel. That it is not. What the hotel does offer is clean and comfortable accomadations, a beautiful little beach and direct access to Christiansted.... More

The Old Boat Captin retired 5 yrs ago sothe last I say was a pretty burnette. Travel to the Cay takes 5 mins and after you get off the launch and look into the water your in heaven. One of the most calm and child frendly beaches in St.Croix. Alot of water equipment, there's a nice bar with menu, Thursdays... More

The shuttle boat to the hotel was prompt and took us right to the hotel entrance and we had to walk a little to check in. The rooms are very nice, we had a view of the Fort and the water. Pelicans and other sea birds were abundant. The staff was friendly. The beach was nice as well. The pool... More

The view of St. Croix from the island is astonishing! Snorkeling right of the beach was a huge highlight of staying here. We saw conch, barracuda, sea turtles, starfish, and plenty of fish! This is not a luxury hotel (the rooms are a good size and have plenty of amenities tho), but the views, staff, and atmosphere are great! The... More

We stayed at hotel on the cay for 4 nights and had a positive experience. The location is excellent with a fun boat ride to and from the hotel. There were egrets nests, lizards and birds to admire on the property. We took a taxi from the airport and then rented a car for our last day. The room was... More

This was our second stay at the hotel and just like last time it was great. The hotel isn't fancy, but the service is excellent, the rooms are large, clean and have everything you need. The kitchenettes make it easy to not break the bank eating every meal out. The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is amazing as soon... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here for a week. One of the best times we've had, the bar is a little bit more expensive than others around the area. Swimming is great (in the ocean) we never went to the pool we didn't see a point. Hotel rooms are super clean and well taken care of. Staff is... More

We only took the ferry and sat on the beach and at the bar. The service was great. The bartenders were friendly, attentive and made our visit special. Either their service problems from the past have been solved, or our polite and friendly manner were appreciated. Hard to say, but our experience was great. Go for a ferry ride to... More

My family of 4, and another family of 4, stayed here for 4 nights and then went to Buccaneer for 4 nights. Our families had kids aged 7 and 9. Both families agree that we would def chose this hotel again. This is surprising bc we hands down thought we would be counting down the days to the Buccaneer stay.... More
