We have been to dozens of beach side resorts in many parts of the United States and I must say Sand Castle on the Beach is the absolute best hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful.The restaurant on the premises was superb.We are planning to return to St Croix and one day move to the island on a permanent... More

My boyfriend and I (from Virginia and Maryland) reserched and planned our vacation to my home in the Virgin Islands for a few months before hand. However, in Frederiksted , St.Croix there are not many hotels to choose from... so Sand Castle on the Beach seemed the obvious choice based on its pictures and reviews. But, once there, it was...

Dear Judger: Exaggerations and untruths, will make sensational news! Please stick to the facts: you purchased the least expensive accommodation and wanted the best in the house? The staff upgraded you at no charge to a Garden Studio and still you want to complain? Perhaps, your need to find faults is greater that your desire to be at peace? Who... More

My husband and I went with 15 friends to SCOTB. Many in our group had been to the resort three years prior for our friends' commitment ceremony. This year, we celebrated their anniversary. SCOTB is not lavish by any means, but it's very comfortable and friendly and the private beach and proximity to that lovely beach make it an ideal... More

We just returned from a week long scuba diving trip in St. Croix (Cane Bay dive shop is excellent). We stayed at the Sand Castle and it was just fine. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the extra large outdoor (grilled) porch was great for drying all our of our gear after we washed it out daily. Room 104... More

In January we spent a week at Sandcastle on the Beach and had an absolutely wonderful vacation. My partner was a bit apprehensive because he likes the big resort types of places, but after a few days at Sandcastle, he was completely won over. About halfway through the week he commented that coming back to Sandcastle after a day around... More

This is a lovely B&B right on the beach. We enjoyed this place immensely, having never stayed in Frederiksted before. We've been to St. Croix many times and have stayed at the Divi and Carambola and The Waves at Cane Bay, But this trip we stayed mostly in Frederiksted, only visiting Csted once all week. The staff at SC was... More

St. Croix has a quiet, relaxed pace compared to other Caribbean destinations and Sand Castle on the Beach is the perfect small hotel for a St. Croix vacation. The rooms are comfortable, staff friendly, and the restaurant is excellent. The beachfront is one of the nicest on the island, perfect for splashing, swimming or snorkeling. Additional beautiful beaches are a... More

Out of the crowds and right on a gorgeous uncrowded beach. Huge variety of rooms and prices but those facing the beach are largest and quiet. Continental Breakfast was included. The restaurant is fantastic and has an extensive wine list. Plan on dining in town or over in Christiansted on Tues- Thurs. when the restaurant is closed. The rooms have... More

SCOB is a really wonderful place to stay. We picked it just BECAUSE it is NOT a resort and because the write ups on different sites (including GoStCroix.com) discuss its hominess, openness, beach, and friendly staff. If you're looking to Vacate (the purpose of a Vacation), this is the place. If you're looking for golf courses and tennis courts and... More

Pricey, very tacky, owners live and think inside the box. They will never get what it will take to make this beautiful vacation spot. They do work hard, but they just do not get it!
