If you have decided on the not so touristy St. Croix than you are already in the right mindset for the Hotel on the Cay. While it might be a little rough around the edges, and I do mean a little, it has a beautiful little stretch if beach, with a local flavor bar right there including service at your lounge chair, nice rooms and great views. I was there off season in mid August so there was no crowd and I probably had the nicest room in the hotel so my experience may not have been typical, and I'm not looking for a staff falling all over me so the place was perfect. A two minute courtesy boat ride put me in Christianstead for shopping, bars and a moonlight cruise on a catamaran.
The photos on the Hotel's website are honest and be aware that the place has flaws, but some of the bad reviews are from people who needed to go to a more insular hotel on a more touristy island.
