We visited HOTC again in June for our 5 year anniversary. We were married there on the beach and will always have fond memories. Our group of 10 was not disappointed! You will not find a better hotel for the price in the Caribbean! ($79/night plus taxes and surcharges). Yes, the rooms are in need of an update, but the bathrooms were already updated and the new owners are working on that (new rooms on the way and the model we saw should be a welcome update!).
The rooms were clean, shower was hot and having a microwave, small refrigerator and broiler/toaster was a great added benefit. One couple in our group was placed on the Gallows Bay side and when no rooms were available on the harbor side, John placed them in a suite so our group could enjoy the extra space! (A big thanks to John!).
We took the pre-planned trip into town with "Rudy's" for $7 person and picked up enough supplies for breakfast and lunch for the week. We found everyone on the staff pleasant and helpful, especially Ryan in maintenance filing in for the week.
The ferry boats were always prompt and quick to take you back and forth. We went snorkeling off the beach and saw plenty of fish, turtles, rays and eels.
On the day a cruise ship invaded our paradise, we retreated to the pool area and had the place to ourselves.
In final, we welcome the changes but hope the price remains affordable! I don't thnk you could go wrong with your stay at Hotel on the Cay!
