We did a cruise ship day pass to this hotel and it was so excellent. The beach didn't have more than a dozen or so people on it. We got two chairs, an umbrella and two drinks for $25! We also had access to the outside pool, the bar & restaurant, restroom and outside shower. It was a lovely and... More

I can't say enough great things about this place! The location is perfect, the sunsets are stunning, and it is close to downtown Frederiksted. I felt like I was on my own private getaway. The staff is very friendly, and always willing to assist you with anything you need on site and answer any questions about the area. Sand Castle... More

I just cannot stay away from Sand Castle On The Beach! I was there two weeks last winter, two this summer, and just returned from two this fall. There must be a mile of perfect beach with very seldom any tourists on it. Their restaurant is truly superb with an open air setting that cannot be compared to any other... More

tissue paper sheets, the owners could not give a S@#T about anything other then charging your credit card. One thing they do not tell you is that they sell beach chairs to the cruise ships that come to port. One day your beach is paradise the next day is wall to wall people smoking cigs, ordering every morsel of food... More

I would go back to this resort year after year. It is located on a stretch of beach that is long, quiet and beautiful. The service is very friendly and helpful! The room was very clean as was the resort overall.

We never had to worry about anything hike staying at sand castle. Aside from the restaurant not being open everyday. But there are plenty I places within a five or ten minute walk that were perfect. The staff was always friendly and very helpful. The cab drivers they refer people to are fantastic. Prices were reasonable and we snorkels right... More

The gem of the Caribbean! My wife and I have come to this resort over and over again. It's quiet, clean, and just a mile outside of town - close enough to be convenient, but far enough to really feel paradise. The staff is friendly, both swimming pools maintained well, and their restaurant... wow. Five nights a week, the Beachside... More

“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. ”
