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

We visited for just the day because we were on a cruise and were very happy with our experience. We were able to walk here from the ship in about 30 minutes, with most of the walk being close to the the water with sidewalks. We were able to get 2 chairs, an umbrella and 2 rum punches for $25....

This was our first stay at this hotel and it was very disappointing, especially considering the cost. “Ocean View” is a joke. There was a little patio enclosed by steel bars that one had to look through and squint to see across the pool area to the ocean about a block away. The restaurant was closed a lot, not even... More

I had never stayed at Sand Castles before. This is a top rate property. The staff is over the top friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar serve great drinks and food. The beach on west end is great. We will definitely stay there next time we visit STX

Spent two wonderful weeks in March on Saint Croix and at Sand Castle on the Beach. We have been coming there for 10 years now and it keeps drawing us back. We live in California and the trip getting there is a long day, but so worth it once there. The hotel rooms are comfortable and clean. The housekeeping staff... More
