So we first visited Coconuts for my birthday in 2015 and fell in love. Castle provides a laid back atmosphere that is close to it all. The beach access was great. I did yoga every morning on the beach. We visited during off season while it was raining and still had a blast. Not too far from the boardwalk or...

Ladies weekend at OCMD staying at CITS. This was our 10th anniversary. We love it here. The balcony with ocean view is breathtaking! What a wonderful gesture by the staff as they treated us with a complimentary bottle of wine placed in the bucket of sand (how appropriate!) with fresh flowers to celebrate our 10th year. We love the atmosphere...

My wife and I stayed at the Castle in the Sand Hotel recently and one morning had breakfast at the Beachhouse. They offer a very nice buffet. We were seated and then served ourselves at the buffet line. They offer a variety of egg dishes, meats, waffles, pancakes, and french toast. Fresh fruit and yogurt is also available. For the...

I love this Castle in the Sand!!! The staff is super friendly, and the maids respected our service dogs. Every request was met with a friendly smile. We need to have early access for health reasons, and they usually have our room ready early. They change the bedspreads between guests, use dogs to check for bed bugs, etc. I am...

We think Coconuts is great too! The only bar and grill that can serve food and drinks on the beach and the original spot for 2 for 1 happy hour! Come back again soon! Adam Showell Assistant General Manager Castle in the Sand Hotel

Stayed on the 5th floor with a wall of windows and stellar ocean views. Hallway noises were loud but the room was fairly quiet. The room was dated - wallpaper peeling at the seams, mattress needed replacing, and very small bathroom with one step to the sink and tub from the toilet. A breakfast buffet in the downstairs restaurant was...

We stayed at Castle in the Sand for three days. We were, I think, in the oldest part of the hotel which has three different buildings. Our room was clean but had a weird smell and looked and felt dated. We were on the second floor and had an ok view of the ocean. The beach is absolutely beautiful and...

Thank you for your very fair review. One of the best parts of our hotel is the many different buildings and room types we have throughout our property. What might not be ideal for one family, may be perfect for another couple. I am happy you had so many positive things to say about your stay and if you do...

Stayed here in April of 2015. Great place. The view is amazing. We were on the highest level with a balcony. Beautiful, but my next visit will be the top floor with the glass windows floor to ceiling looking out at the ocean. Definitely will be returning.
