Please stay out of the SANDBAR Restaurant!! The Manager of the bar and kitchen is rude. He was upset that we had other food with us while I was ordering food from there. I had paid for my order and was sitting down waiting on it. He comes up to my Fiancee starts telling him to wait outside, then comes... More

We found the condo in the Sand Castles Resort through VRBO. It was a well furnished one bedroom with fully equipped kitchen overlooking the beach which was a mere step away. Cost was just over $100. US per night. Housekeeping was provided 3 times a week with clean towels and change of bedding. The front desk staff were friendly and... More

This resort is not all inclusive but has 2 nice restaurants on the property, we particularly enjoyed the one upstairs. This place is ideal for people who want the security of staying somewhere "safe" but the freedom to do as you please. The apartment itself was privetly owned and beautiful. We were very comfortable. Wifi - forget it, you won't... More

My husband I travelled in November and it was a disappointment staying at Sandcastles. We have stayed there before and the place was nice, clean and the rooms were looking good but our recent visit was a horrible one. We tried to speak to the manager but he was nowhere to be found and was reliable informed by some of... More

My girlfriend and I visited for 8 days for Xmas vacation. We waited three days before we could get fresh towels. We would call down to the front desk and the front desk girls would not try to accommodate us. The front desk girls are not friendly and helpful in trying to solve problems when they occur. My total eight... More

nothing fussy clean needs a little updating but some of these apartments are individually owned so it's what the owner wants to put in its close to everywhere in the town shopping the casino the club's etc etc if you just want a clean place then this place is for you

This is an apartment style hotel with a full kitchen. On our last night we stayed in for dinner and cooked fish & lobster that we bought from a local while hanging out at the beach. If you require a lot of amenities this is not the place for you. We stayed there for 3 nights following a 1 week... More

My boyfriend and I visited for two night to celebrate my birthday. We booked online and paid online and called prior to our arrival to explain that we would arrive late in the evening. We arrived after a almost four hour bus ride and when we finally got to check in the customer service rep is saying they are out... More

I stayed at this resort once before about ten years ago and did not have a positive experience. I decided to try again since I was told that they have done some upgrading. Sadly I did not find much improvement. The exterior appeared to be well maintained and there is a pool. There is also direct access to the beach.... More

I rented a private Sandcastles condo a few weeks ago based on a referral from another Tripadvisor member. And I am so glad that I did. The condo that I usually rent in Turtle Beach Towers was booked. So I hoped and prayed that the Sandcastles condo would be at or above the level of comfort and cleanliness I expect.... More
