Nice clean hotel right on beach. Restaurant next door with bar very nice and convenient. We had a room on the street side which could be somewhat noisy with traffic and loud music. Would probably ask for room closer to beach next time. Staff was nice and accomodating.

Sand Castle on the Beach is a perfect gay friendly hotel! My partner Michael and I spent 5 wonderful days there, and we were not disappointed. The apartment we occupied had a king size bed, living room, well-equipped kitchen, and a nice porch with a marvelous ocean view. The owners were always present and interested in our feed back. The...

Sand castle on the Beach is a perfect small gay friendly hotel on the west end of St. Croix. My partner and I spent 5 days relaxing at this quaint, beautiful beachside hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The owners of the hotel, Cheryl and Simone, couldn't be nicer. The hotel's restaurant, The Beach Side Cafe, is excellent,... More

We spent the day at Sand Castle Beach Hotel while we were on a cruise. They have a special for cruise ship passengers: $25 for two chairs, a beach umbrella & two rum lunch drinks. They have a cafe with excellent food right on the beach. We had a relaxing and enjoyable day on the beach, and then walked back... More

Great place to stay. Very friendly staff that I can't say enough good things about. The owners are there on the property working and are easily found if you were to need them. The food at the restaurant is very good and the times we ate there we were very happy with our meals. The staff makes you feel like... More

My wife and I eat here at least once a week. Everything we've ever ordered has been delicious. The duck is outta this world and the steak and sea food is ridiculously good. If you just want drinks this is the spot for it. I got something called the "painkiller" and it definitely lived up to its name. The staff... More

Enough can't be said about the staff and the beach this hotel is located on. If you are looking for an idyllic tropical get away this is it. For nights we felt like staying in the hotels restaurant was not only convenient but the food was good.

Sand Castle on the Beach is a gem in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxing. The restaurant, Beachside Café, serves excellent food. Simone, who always had a winning smile and a warm hello, always went the extra mile to meet our needs. Everything added up to... More

I've been coming to this hotel since 1985 (when it was first called The Kind Frederik), and I keep returning to this spot in St. Croix. Friends keep asking me why I don't try other places. And it's simply because I don't get a chance to take a vacation like this more than once a year, and instead of risking... More
