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

We had the best time at Sand Castle on the Beach near Frederiksted in St. Croix. The staff is warm and friendly, the food is fabulous and the rooms/grounds are clean and tidy! The proprieters are Simone & Sheryl and they are very involved with day to day ops. You see them every day checking guests in, serving meals or... More

We chose this hotel because of the website listing of the accomodations they had to offer. When we arrived, we had a very tiny room, one window overlooking the stairway (of course needing to keep it closed for privacy). No shampoo available, only bar soap. the TV remote didn't work, shower was either cold or hot...hard to get a setting.... More

As others have said, arriving at the resort we were met the next day with the locals at the beach. The music from the beachgoers was loud with constant bongo drums going. We were wondering when it was all going to settle down. The ride from the airport to the hotel was interesting in that we were wondering what we... More

Sandcastle on the Beach is the perfect low-key, private, relaxing Caribbean getaway--and a great place to get married! My partner and I had been to Sandcastles twice before this year (in Feb ’05 and ’06) and when we decided to tie the knot, we instantly knew we’d be returning here to do the deed! We were able to make all... More

I stayed at this hotel during the beginning of June with my husband; I had selected the hotel for the price and the pictures they had shown of the beach. I even cross referenced the hotel with its main web site and; I had believed there was a Catch 22 somewhere in the deal but when we got there and... More

We booked our stay for the memorial day week. The first disappoinment w/ sand castle is the fact that some sites do not specify that it is a Gay and lesbian friendly resort. It wouldn't have changed our booking, but is useful information to those who might not be as comfomfortable with their family or children at this type of... More
