We have have stayed at the SandCastle Condos year after year since they were built. It is always a great place with a great pool and boardwalk to the beach. We rented 3 condos so the the whole family could be there to celebrate my wife and I's 30th anniversary early. It was fun but I wish we could have... More

Stayed 3 nights in 333...great view and nice condo. For a one bedroom condo it was very spacious, with a nice size kitch and room common spaces. My kids loved the pool area and we spent at least half our time there. A nice shower station on the boardwalk, friendly front desk staff, good security and a clean property (no... More

When we first walked up to our room I thought the place looked awfully run down, but once we got into the room O was impressed. It was a cute room. The stay was pleasant and it was easily access to the beach. I would recommend this place to others.

We stayed in room 430 and it had a pretty good view. Probably will get another room with better view next time. LOVED the staff and housekeeping! Great service! The only thing I didn't like was the walkway leading to beach. It was too hard on my knees. Steps too deep. Other than that this place was AMAZING and will... More

We had a condo overlooking the pool and beach. It was super clean, fun, easy to get to the beach and very close to shopping and restaurants. The beach area was very clean as well. They had ponds with tons of turtles for the kids to feed.

One of the best places we have stayed at in Port A. We had an efficiency which worked for us but next time will stay in a one bedroom because I like a little more space and kitchen area. The condo was exactly like the pics on the website. It had good views of the gulf( we were on northside),... More

Overall, a very pleasant place to stay. A little dated, but a clean and very quiet, well-run establishment. Furnishings are comfortable and satisfactory. Great location, plenty of parking, and great views if you can get a beach-facing view. Rates are commensurate for what you get. Highly recommended.
