It has been almost a year and a half since I visited Sand Castle on the Beach in St. Croix but I find myself constantly comparing my other trips to this one. I went to attend the wedding of my dearest friends last January and it was fabulous. The restaurant is very convenient but I would recommend going to the... More

Sand Castle on the Beach is located on the Western side of St. Croix, just outside of Fredericksted. The patio of the hotel leads directly to a beautiful beach. The patio is well equiped with summer furniture; there is a bar, and an excellent restaurant. The clientelle is middle-aged, many of whom are gay or lesbian. The service is competent.... More

This was my first time to St. Croix, and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Since it was on the opposite side of the main city, Christiansted, make sure you rent a car. I only decided at the last minute to rent, and am I glad I did! Unfortunately, Fredericksted is very unpopulated - so much that... More

My husband, I and our 9 month old son just got back from the beautiful 3 nights stay at the Sand Castle on the Beach in St. Croix. We stayed in the brand new mini villa #303 - an awsome accommodations for 2, recommended to anyone. A lot of privacy, space and a great view (it is an ocean front... More

My partner and I stayed at the Sand Castle for a long weekend at the beginning of October. This was our first visit to St Croix but our 4th to the virgin islands. We were sooo excited to find a gay and lesbian hotel. The visit both exceeded our expectations and disappointed us at the same time so I'm giving... More

This is the perfect vacation spot for Gay/Lesbian travelers. The property is a little piece of heaven with a gorgeous beach, pool, delicious restaurant (best we had on the island), and a friendly staff. The only downside to the hotel is it's location--near Frederickstead which is a rather sleepy town (crime/poverty). The rooms are clean and comfortable and there are... More

Sand Castle on The Beach is a haven, a sanctuary from a world that is far too busy, far too straight and far too focused on things that seem important but are not. Being there is so re-juvenating. This was our 6th trip there and we always find it re-charges us and reminds us of the wonderfulness of life. How... More

We headed there as a side trip from St. Thomas, spent 3 days there and wished it was our original destination...It was a pleasure trip that we never wanted to end...The water was so clear and we tried each rum drink on the menu...The staff made us feel like family...We definately will be back in the future; hopefully sooner than...

We had a wonderful time! Rooms range in size according to what you pay for. The restaurant is EXCELLENT! Grills are available around the pool area to use at any time. The owners and the staff are extremely welcoming and accomodating. Irma will be there to greet you at the front desk. She took care of all of our needs... More
