We have been staying at Hotel on the Cay for many years, and a lot of renovations have been done to improve the caliber of the hotel. While not a luxury hotel, it is a very nice affordable hotel. It is located on a private island off of Christiansted harbor, which is part of its charm. It is a 2-minute ferry ride into town and the ferry runs constantly until 1:00 am (and you can make arrangements at the front desk for a later ferry if you plan to return after that). Rooms are comfortable, every one has a private balcony with a view of the Caribbean or Christiansted harbor, and comes equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. It is the only hotel in Christiansted with a beach, which faces the harbor and is generally quiet. If you feel too lazy to go into town for breakfast or lunch or don't want to eat in your room, there is a restaurant right on the beach. Restaurant servers also circulate on the beach to see if you want drinks. On Tuesday nights, there is a beach barbecue with island entertainment (a stilt dancer, a fire eater and glass walker, and steel drum music), which is a lot of fun and the food is very good (chicken, ribs, fresh fish, salads, dessert). The hotel staff is very pleasant (it goes a long way if you are pleasant to them and begin a conversation with Good Morning or Good Afternoon!) Beach towels can be picked up in the front office. Several island tours also are offered through the hotel. We hope to return again next year.
