Hotel on the Cay

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great hotel with private beach, restaurant, and bar. Staff was friendly, and the rooms were clean. It was a bit outdated and could use some upgrades but it was still beautiful and a great price!

All around the place to stay. From the staff to the atmosphere, It will keep you coming back.

I stayed at this hotel while on a recent business trip to ST. CROIX. This Hotel was a very nice place to stay and I was able to enjoy downtown restaurants and shopping without having to call a cab. Everything is within walking distance. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Be sure to enjoy the Tuesday night BBQ and shows. The beaches are nice and the views are fantastic.

At check-in we were surprised by an unadvertised "energy charge" of an additional $24 per night (this was in addition to the tax and resort fee). Nowhere in the information we received was there mention of that charge. I talked with three or four other guests who were also charged the extra $24 per night. Other than that, the hotel had some very nice features--the beach right out our door, the convenience to downtown Christiansted, a partial view of the harbor, the free ferry rides, a clean and very nice room. In spite of all these positive features, the surcharge tainted our overall view of the hotel, The cleaning staff were very nice--it was two out of the three desk staff who were neither helpful nor pleasant. We would definitely stay there again, but we would first ask about the $24 surcharge.

The cleaning staff was awful. The hotel had roaches. The only reason I stayed for seven nights was because I could not get a flight back after the second night.

I stay in this hotel for the second time. And is locate in a Cay. Have a beutiful beach and have a bar that serve food and drinks. Is well locate near the board walk where all night life are. The pool of the hotel need an upgrade. The room was very well clean and dont expect luxury but have a wonderful view in the morning and in the afternoon. In the beach are a rental facilities for acuatic sport and they have a small boat that runs from the Cay to the boardwalk. Is a nice place to have good and fun vacations.

This is the best places to stay at when in dr croix , for a good time

The hotel for the price I get was fantastic, is near the boardwalk where all night activities are. The pool need attention, but the beach is amazing and the bar is there. If you want to ride a Jet ski also is there. The staff was very friendly. I went to work the first 2 days and the last 2 days just to relax and pass a good time. The room have an spectacular view, the air condition works very good. Fabulous for the price I found.

This hotel has a nice's beaches in st Croix ,and if you are in st Croix you need to stay at this hotel , I have been coming back to this place as often as I can

Nice place ,nice staff it is a good place to stay ,if in st Croix you must go to this beach

Hotel is outdated. Alarm clock didn't work, Pool had to much chlorine, had a bad reaction to it. Keyboard in lobby had letters worn off. Sugar ants all over.

Was not quite what I expected but I guess you get what you pay for, need renovation

Sand in the room. Roach. The pool so dirty. The bar staff not friendly and not happienes.

The location was amazing and I would stay there again. The rooms were somewhat outdated and kind of older but the location and the beach made up for it. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They let us check in 7 ours early. If you are looking for a big night life St. Croix may not be the place, it was quiet for the most part at night. Great time overall!!

I like the fact that it is all by itself on its own tiny islet ( cay ) and accessible by water taxi from St. Croix. It caters to older vacationeers who want to relax and sit by the beach under a palm tree, sun themselves, read a book, go for a snorkle right off the beach and have a pina colada at hand.

Close to the action for shopping, sailing, diving, snorekeling Very happy we stayed there! I'd do again, gladly!

Our stay was very enjoyable. The room was clean and the staff incredibly helpful and courteous. It's located centrally to the main part of town and boardwalk entertainment. There are free daily activities for hotel guests to get out and see St. Croix or you can pay for the same activities if you don't want to go on the hotel's schedule. If you plan to rent a car while on vacation check with the hotel first to secure parking because the hotel "front door" is only accessible by boat which is free to guests. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. It is not a chain hotel so don't look for all the fine details that are usually attended to at bigger hotels.

As with many of the island properties, this hotel was dated but charming. You cant be extra picky if you stay here but the staff was very nice and the area was very charming. I recommend it .

Thank you for staying with us. Please contact Orbitz, your booking source regarding the apparent unadvertised energy surcharge. This has been established with our hotel for over 7 years, and every customer booking through Expedia and their companies (orbitz, travelocity) are advising all customers of this payment.
