Positive Reviews

Private Island

Hotel on the Cay boasts an ideal location for a private island getaway. However, the city life isn't out of reach and guests enjoyed that there is a ferry shuttle going back and forth between Protestant Cay and downtown Christiansted on the mainland. There, you will find plenty of dining options to enjoy. The ride is only two minutes long. Guests say Protestant Cay has the best beach in town.


Overall, most guests enjoyed their accommodations, the in-room amenities, and the facilities available on the property. There is a variety of water sports and rentals available, including windsurfing, paddle boarding and sailing. On the beach, you will always find plenty of loungers and umbrellas. On days in, you can enjoy movies on the large flat screen TV.

Under the Sea

Guests say that snorkeling in the area is a must on your to-do list. There is an impressive amount and a large variety of sea life around Protestant Cay.

Negative Reviews

Closing Time

Many guests were disappointed that the restaurants on the property generally close early - make sure to double check the hours before making dining plans. Furthermore, there is no room service either. Fortunately, downtown Christiansted is only two minutes away, where you will find many dining options to enjoy.

Mediocre Meals

Guests were also not too impressed with the food offerings at the hotel. Meals for the most part tasted mediocre. In addition, some guest also complained that the service was too slow.

No Elevators

There are no elevators onsite. If you have a lot of luggage or trouble with stairs, ask for an easily accessible room upon check-in.
