After 4 years and 3 of these at Soggy Dollar and Sandcastle it's time to call it a day due to the subtle but distinct changes that have occurred. At first it is paradise but now the standard of service and the creeping habit of disregarding residents, treating them just like the masses that pour off the multitude of boats... More

We have been day tripping to the Soggy Dollar on and off for the last 15 years as White Bay is our most favorite spot in the Caribbean. On our most recent visit my wife and I decided to stay at the Sandcastle and I am so glad we did, I wish we had stayed longer. We stayed in one... More

If you're looking for slow paced, low key beach time go in the off season and you will practically have the bay to yourself. If you want a more lively party atmosphere go during the busy season. I'm more the low key type and our mid august visit was perfect as it was only us and one other couple at... More

We stayed here for three nights in November. We were in #5 one of the two AC units. I recommend the AC to keep the mosquitos, etc., out. The rooms are comfortable and spare. But, what else do you need when you are on the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean? We loved it in the morning when all you... More

My wife and I brought 30 of our closest family and friends down to stay at the Sandcastle and the surrounding hotels for our wedding this past July. We can't say enough about how accommodating everyone was at Sandcastle. They helped from the time we got there, to the day of our wedding (blocking off space and ensuring we had... More

I had been wanting to stay here ever since we came to Soggy Dollar on a day boat trip 5 years ago. It was even better than I had imagined! We were 2 couples staying in two cottages (#3 and 4) for 3 nights after a week in St. John. Everything about our stay here was perfect! The cottages were... More

Loved staying in one of the two villas on the beach. It was perfect for what we were expecting. If you want steps to the beach, a hammock to read a book in, an endless supply of pain killers from Soggy Dollar and not much else this is the place.....We added three days onto our already week stay in St....

We loved our stay at Sand Castle-Soggy Dollar. This is absolutely the best spot on the island. We visited 7 Virgin Islands on our trip and found White Bay to be the cream of the crop. A+++ location, good food, great drinks and the staff is super warm and friendly. They have kayaks, stand up paddle boards and other water... More

Had a great two-night stay here with my significant other. It is very rustic, which can be a positive or a negative depending on what you are looking for. ROOMS - There are no TVs in the cabins. Only 2 cabins come equipped with Air conditioners. We stayed in one of the AC cabins. Comfortable bed. Refrigerator available. They provide... More

Sandcastle is the small hotel associated with the famous Soggy Dollar Bar. It's a remarkable little place for its magnificent locations. The mornings and evenings are peaceful and quiet like no other place on earth, and the afternoons are filled with daytrippers and sailors. 'Tons of good people watching! The staff at Sandcastle is dependably friendly and welcoming. We love... More
