We stayed in a one bedroom deluxe. The room was nice, great view. Just a few problems....the AC went out after the first night, the room did not have sheets and blankets for the sofa bed (when I called the front desk they told me to come get them :/ ), there was only ONE chair on the huge balcony...

If you are looking for luxury...wait... why are you going to Port A? You should be looking for easy access to restaurants, bars and the beach! Sandcastle is old, but the staff is friendly and the views from our balcony were awesome! Take a ride down the elevator and walk to the beach. That's why you want to go to... More

We had a great stay at the Sandcastle Condominiums. The property is well-located on the beach and convenient to shops and restaurants (walking distance). We had a fantastic view of the Gulf from a 1-bedroom deluxe unit with a wrap-around balcony. (In this area, a 1- bedroom with a great view is hard to find.) Our condo had been recently... More

We came to port a for a rainy spring break. I am never sure on spring break trips as we have a 10 yr old (& i dont want to leave him with impressions of crazed partying for spring break). That is not the case at sand castle condos. When we checked in, there was a group of older persons... More

Took my children on a beach getaway from Austin. The condo is great lots of rooms to choose from. Right on the beach. Nice and clean facilities and friendly staff. The best thing about the place is the value and location...oh, and the views are great, too and the swimming at the hotel, too. Look forward to a return trip,... More

This was our third stay at the Sandcastle. We have stayed here for the value, views and the fact that you may pick the unit you want. Use their website to take the virtual tour of each unit. We prefer a unit facing north up the beach to watch the ships come in. Bring your binoculars!! Also, if you have... More

This is our second time at Port A and both times we've stayed at the Sandcastle. The staff have always been friendly, the rooms very good, the parking fine, but best of all is the location! A short little walk down their wooden walkway and you're on the beach! And it's a beautiful beach! We were amazed at how clean... More

Loved being able to pick your condo online. You can decide where you want to stay in the complex and you can see the inside pictures. This place is older but extremely well kept.

We love this older property and have stayed here (in at least 5 different rooms over a 5 year period). The key thing to realize is that each room/unit is individually owned and can vary significantly in decor. The good news is, that their up-to-date website can give you an idea of the room that you will get. If you... More
