Following a problem posed by Lov\'asz in 1969, it is believed that every finite connected vertex-transitive graph has a Hamilton path. This is shown here to be true for cubic Cayley graphs arising from finite groups having a -presentation, that is, for groups generated by an involution and an element of order such that their product has order . More precisely, it is shown that the Cayley graph has a Hamilton cycle when (and thus ) is congruent to modulo , and has a long cycle missing only two adjacent vertices (and thus necessarily a Hamilton path) when is congruent to modulo .
