My family of 4, and another family of 4, stayed here for 4 nights and then went to Buccaneer for 4 nights. Our families had kids aged 7 and 9. Both families agree that we would def chose this hotel again. This is surprising bc we hands down thought we would be counting down the days to the Buccaneer stay....

The Hotel on the Cay was a nice surprise. The room is not very modern but it was comfy enough. Because the hotel is on a cay you have to wait the hotel boat (which holds approximately 20 people) but it was fast. Hotel is near good restaurants so we had the chance to eat nicely.

I can't say enough great things about my stay at Hotel on the Cay! First of all,you can't drive up to the Lobby, you have to catch a cute ferry to make the short crossing.

It is not a hotel, nor a city, where you go to party. It all feels small because it is. The hotel is very charming, and it is clean. Furniture is outdated. Some areas feel abandoned.
