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

There are several things you need to know before you book this hotel: 1) The continental breakfast is very skimpy --- juice/coffee and a muffin. That's it. 2) On Sundays, whomever is next to the hotel on the right side hosts a no-holds-barred music jam that starts around noon and goes at least until 7 pm. The "music" is so... More

A peaceful tropical escape, a true gem. This was probably the most relaxed vacation I have ever had. I was looking for a destination to vacation alone and chill-out. I found it at the Sandcastle. I wanted to get away and mellow out and found myself making friends with many of the other guests. The property’s proprietors, Sheryl and Simone... More

The hotel Stayed the first night in a studio 202 which may have been a bit small for our taste so we upgraded to suite 207. Very clean, comfortable and worth the extra money if you can afford it. Patio facing the beach was nice to enjoy morning coffee before starting the day. The two windows along both sides of... More

I reseached my vacation throughly before booking directly on sandcastleonthebeach.com It was a special trip and I wanted the best - the "Luxury Beachfront Villa" as advertised on the website. I paid top dollar too, but it had everuthing I wanted as I narrowed down my search (room on the sand, 2 pools, gay friendly, nice beach, kitchen in villa).... More

The Sandcastle on the Beach was not what I expected, especially for what I paid. The location was near several housing projects on a rough part of the island , Frederiksted. The noise from the music went all night and the management could not move us to a different room. The hotel did not provide shampoo so bring your own!... More

This was our very first trip together and we booked very last minute, so trying to find a warm, affordable destination in December was tough. SCOTB was available, in our price range, and offered what we wanted... beach and bed. Had read TripAdvisor first, I may not have booked, given that this resort tends to cater to the GL crown...
