We really enjoyed our stay here. It's an older property but still very nice, and the price is right. We could see the gulf from our balcony and the beach is very close. It's also nice to have a kitchenette so you don't have to eat out for every meal. I'll be back!

Conveniently located, Comfortable condo, well-appointed, good service, great pool, awesome ocean view, spacious balcony. If only the beach was not covered in seaweed! Otherwise perfect. Hint: If you head north on the main road, you can cross to the mainland on the ferry - kids loved it.

We have visited the Sandcastle Condominiums three times in tge past year and will be returning again next weekend with our entire extended family. Since Sandcastle was booked last month we chose a place that was unknowingly disgusting. I thought I should give this business a review as well. We stayed on the 5th floor twice and the third floor,... More

We stayed here during the 4th of July weekend. The condos are on the beach and it's close to restaurants and shopping.

When my 3 friends and I rented a room for two nights we were told that the room we rented would have two queen beds and when we got there there was only one bed. Then, at around 1 am of our first night, we get a call that since our room only had one bed that we could only... More

Loved our stay at Sand Castle. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with a large deck that looked over the pool and the beach. The property is older and dated, but very well maintained. More importantly, service was excellent! Everyone who worked at the property was helpful and went the extra mile. Beach access was ideal with a boardwalk... More

I stayed the week before Mother's day. We rented room 526. Very nice! Great view. Nice gym. Fantastic hot tub. Wish that the pool was heated. It was the first time that I had been to Port Aransas. I will definitely be back next year and I will bring my girls.
