The grounds were well-kept and beautiful! We appreciated having use of bikes and on-site do-it-yourself laundry facilities. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. My husband, who has back problems, found it difficult to sleep on the bed in the room we were assigned and we were relocated. The rooms are clean but very dated and worn. The air conditioning...

The staff were very friendly. There is a heated pool and large hot tub. Close to the beach, in a good location. There are a few things they still need to fix in the rooms such as a rickety chair and towel racks, but great having two bedrooms together with a kitchen, dining room,and living room. Only one small bathroom...

So I happened upon this hotel by accident. I was supposed to stay at the Sand Pearl for a wedding. A few of us attendees, who either didn't make reservations or brought unexpected plus ones, landed ourselves without accommodations and without a vacancy. This little gem, Island Cay, was actually recommended to us by one of the bell boys. It...

I feel as if I'm reading my own review. Thank you so much for sharing all of your great insights about the property. I will have to thank the above mentioned bell boy for thinking of us as an acceptable alternative for your prior arrangements.

We loved this hotel!! Perfect location one block from beach, close to everything yet further from all of the tourists and noise. We saved a lot of money on eating out by using our kitchen in our room that had everything we needed. We loved having the sauna a few steps away from our back sliding glass doors. Room 107....
