The Sandcastle is a bit hidden away, a few blocks off the main drag toward the beach. It is as beachfront as you can get, and has a private walkway to the beach. No restaurant on site, but nice staff, great owners, and clean enough. What does that mean? Hey, if you need someone standing beside you with a hankie... More

Family has been coming back here every year for the past 5+ years. Very good upkeep, not too expensive but still very nice. Easy beach access and nice pool, not too strict on pool rules either. Very safe area, kind of middle of the island and very close to good restaurants and shops.

We loved our stay in #308 and that it was so close to the beach. We had no issues during our stay. Staff and guests were all friendly. We only used the pool once since the beach was so close. My only complaint was the shower head was a little low for tall people! Added bonus were the turtles by... More

This is the second year our extended family has met for an August vacation at the Sandcastle Condominiums, and I'm sure we will return. There are condos in all sizes, and activities to suit all ages--which, in the case of our family, ranged from 4 years to 74. One plus is that you get to preview the interior of each... More

My boyfriend and I went to Port A for a few days and stayed at the Sandcastle Condos. Our unit was awesome - second floor with a view of the pool and the beach.
