Both fun and functional, this seems to be the place to be centered in Christiansted. It has everything you need to just hang out - food & drinks, pool and beach - and the ferry is always ready to run you over to town - about a two minute trip - with virtually no waiting. Talking to Mary at the...

My sister and I with our families stayed over the 4th at the Hotel on the Cay. Yes the place does need upgrades, but John and Sarah are very welcoming and accommodating. My sister had problems with her room and they were moved immediately to another room and compensated for a night's cost. John made a grocery run for us...

I showed up here with my boyfriend on a holiday weekend without reservations after cutting a stay short at another unnamed place that I wasn't happy with. The manager John was very accommodating. He said they were short on rooms but personally showed us three and let us pick which one we'd like. He gave us a rate on the...

Our group of 4 older couples in their mid 60's just returned from our 4th 2 week golf trip at the HOTC, and were even more pleased than we were on previous trips. As usual, the whole staff was very congenial , while still being customer oriented. They have seemed to be in a continuous upgrading mode during all of...

Our experience at HOTC was great. Being on the private island was an absolute luxury. We are timeshare owners, so we used RCI to book. Yes, the hotel could use some upgrades, but John is aware of that and is working on it. Bathrooms have all been updated. You won't find a more accommodating group of people! The views of...

I had a great time at Hotel on the Cay. The rooms are very nice--we had a great view of the bay and very clean, in spite of the challenges of managing a property in a humid climate surrounded by sand. The hotel grounds are undergoing a face-lift, and while the property is nice as-is, the upside potential is huge....

I agree with one review that the property has seen better days, but I also spent a fair amount of time talking with John, the general manager, and with his background in hospitality management and his vision for what it can become, I think good things are in store for HOTC. The rooms were clean, and with tile floors it...

My husband and I spent 10 days at the Hotel on the Cay in March. I will give the positive things first. The beach is beautiful. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas. They have a bar with food, although we never tried their food because we ate out every night in town and had a rental car during the day, so...

This hotel has seen better days, but the manager is energized and up grading is underway. The tile floors are perfect for divers because you can drag your wet gear to the balcony to dry. The manager set up a special continental breakfast for our early dive days. Shore dives right in front of the hotel were excellent. The room...
