We had one bedroom suite with balcony in this hotel and we really did enjoy our holiday here. There was a basic kitchen with all necessary things for cooking. Pool was very small but who needs pool when you have this great beach just next to the hotel?! We loved walking on the beach and you can actually walk almost...

Wow, crab burger. Sounds odd but tastes great. Good French fries. Great location right on water close to a very nice beach. Staff were very friendly and attentive. This is on the top of our food list if we visit st crioz again. We only went to the restaurant.

What a treasure! Excellent food, relaxed atmosphere. I have traveled to Sand Castle many, many times over the years. This place never disappoints! Friendly people, and great culture! The snorkeling from the beach at Sand Castle is among the best on the Island!

The staff is very nice and helpful. The location is great, I loved the beach was right out back, and the beach is very nice. Great sand and great for snorkeling. I went about 50 ft out and could still see the bottom which was about 30 ft down. The view at sundown were amazing. The rooms were great. I...

I booked my room based on the hotel's website's indication of the location of the room on the grounds. It was the most expensive room they have (Dolphin Suite), and the location map showed a free standing structure with the beach in front of it and to the right of the structure. In reality, in front of it is the...

Stayed in the villa, it was great. The restaurant food was amazing, and the people who work at the resort were kind and helpful. Would recommend this resort to anyone that is going to St. Croix. The rooms were always cleaned daily, and the resort was nicely kept. Our dive group had an awesome time.

We spent a day here off our cruise ship and it was the most relaxing day of our vacation. We walked from the port both ways and enjoyed it. No one bothered us or tried to sell us anything! In fact, it was Good Friday and there were very few people even out and about. It was a great way...

Absolutely the best value, 5 dollars per person and you have access to the pool, shower and restroom. Not only do they give you a towel to use, but there is also a fantastic cafe/bar attached. We went twice during our visit to St. Croix, the snorkeling is excellent. If you don't have your own snorkel and mask, you can...

“The windows are screened with shutters. The weather is always beautiful so there is always a great breeze. The air conditioners and fans are lovely for the really hot days, but are mostly unnecessary. My partner and I will be back every year in the foreseeable future. ”
