I just arrived home today from a short two day stay at HOTC and couldn't have been happier. My room had a beautiful unobstructed sea view and it's own kitchenette. The bath looked recently remodeled as was the kitchen. The staff was lovely and everyone polite and welcoming. The room had cold ac and cable tv. I didn't need internet...

My boyfriend and I just returned from our trip to St. Croix. We have a friend who lives in Christiansted who we stayed with for the first few nights, but stayed at Hotel on the Cay to have a little "alone time" and it was perfect! We were extremely early for check in (which is at 2pm), but they let...

My husband and I joined friends for our first trip to St. Croix and stayed with them at Hotel on the Cay. This was also my first ever Caribbean trip. I can't wait to go back and it will be to Hotel on the Cay. We had such an amazing week. The people were incredibly friendly and it really felt...

I spent two nights in the hotel for business meetings. I was excited when I realized the hotel was on its own island. I got to the hotel from the ferry service and found it to be outdated. No place to eat besides the beach BBQ not owned by the hotel that charged high prices for next to nothing buffet...

This was the best hotel! The view from the room along with the easterly breezes was perfect. The beach and pool were clean, the staff was helpful and friendly. The GM, John, made us feel like we had come home. The view of the port with all the sailboats was picture postcard perfect. Far enough away from the boardwalk, but...

I own two weeks time share at HOTC and have been staying there for about 12 years. I have never been unhappy there. It is a wonderful place to just sit back and relax. I have seen many changes in the staff but have not met an unpleasant one. And there are the mainstays at the hotel like Sara. If...

What a wonderful setting for a hotel! For those who don't follow current events in the US Virgin Islands, St. Croix has experienced de-industrialization with the closing of the refinery on the island. This has resulted in thousands being unemployed, and many have left the island. In addition, cruise ships are not able to come into Christiansted Harbor. The first...

Hotel on the Cay isn't new, but it is timeless. The accommodations were fine - just not fancy. What makes this place so special are the views, the location and the people. Regardless of where you turn, you'll have an amazing sight - the Caribbean Sea, the Christiansted harbor, and the island itself. The people who keep the hotel running...

The reviews did not let us down on this accommodation. From the moment we arrived in Christensted it was an adventure. The cab driver took us right to the ferry shuttle dock, after stopping for beverages to go on the way, and loaded us on the ferry to the Hotel on the Cay. The ferry ride only took a few...
