Other than the cockroaches, the hotel was nice. It’s a bit dated, but clean. Slept with the patio door open and the ceiling fan on. It was nice hearing the sound of the waves on the shore. Boat to the hotel was very frequent - every few minutes and a short ride.

A pleasant hotel, with needed repairs and upgrades, especially the internet service, which was very poor in the room, but good outside.

Fun adventure. Wonderful beach. The Cay is lovely. The rooms are dated, but everything worked fine. It needs updating and we understand that will be happening under new ownership next year. We had a lovely time viewing the Christmas boat parade and decided to stay longer. No luxury but pleasant experience. Wish there was a foot washer to get the beach sand off. I bet the housekeeping staff wishes that also.
