As another reviewer stated, the trucks and music can be a little loud in the mornings. But that's true anywhere on the island that you go, unless you're looking to pretend you're on your own private island where no one actually lives. Once you get out of the snotty resort areas, there's loud music EVERYWHERE. It's just part of the... More

We booked SCOTB because it was the cheapest, we could find. But it was a little depressing staying there. It is a located on a nice beach in the middle of nowhere and the rooms are tiny and it felt (I guess) like a prison, as there were shutters in front of the windows, so it was impossible to look...

First I have to disagree with Mozart57 - You get what you pay for - his profle says he only stays at the best locations - we picked Sand Castle because it was the least expensive hotel in St. Croix, and offered almost no addons - but we knew this and planned to travel the entire island, not stay at...

SCOTB PROS; The hotel grounds are spotless! One of the hotel owners (Simone) is extremely friendly and vey hands on (bartending, waiting tables, cleaning the pool etc.) The beachside café is very romantic especially if you decide to dine during the sunset. Well that’s all I have to offer for the “pros” CON’S: The hotel is in a neighborhood that... More

Irma was the best help you could have! She was the lovely lady at the front desk every day we were there. She was wonderful. The hotel was clean and cheap. I signed up through hotels.com and got a great deal. Not to mention when I signed up they were doing a promotion with the USVI tourism bureau and I... More

A small resort, very pleasant, with some detached bungalows, and a very pretty garden, right on the beach, with an attached restaurant. We booked Sand Castle on the Beach because it was small, quiet and on the water. We found the service there to be excellent, the restaurant of top quality, the staff very pleasant, and willing to go the... More

My partner and I are from New York and have been going to Sand Castle for the last 5 years. We first found the hotel when looking for a quiet, romantic getaway in the Caribbean - one where we (2 adult men in their late 30's) would feel comfortable. This place was perfect! Small hotel - approx. 20 rooms, secluded,... More

We have just returned from our second stay at Sandcastle, and wish we were still there. We met many couples there who were returning guests and love it there. If all you want is a peaceful, beautiful, casual, restful place with a beautiful beach, this is it. You can snorkel right off the beach and see beautiful fish and some... More

My partner and I went to SCOTB and stayed in a private villa. The accomodations were run down and not very clean, the back of the villa had a porch that was jammed with furniture and unkept completely. There was no sence of security in what we felt was a very bad area of the island. Upon return from a... More
