My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon (we also stayed at The Little Plantation, a villa on St. John, my favorite part of the honeymoon, and Peter Island Resort). The 2 days here were our "party" days. The hotel itself is interesting. We stayed in cottage #3. It's octagonal. The cottages are either... More

My husband and I spent four days at the Sandcastle as part of our honeymoon (we spent the first four days on Tortola). We had a wonderful experience. The highlights were: 1) The beach itself. White sand, warm, clear water, and with the snorkeling gear that you can borrow for free, you can swim all around the fantastic reef that's... More

My wife and I just got back from staying at the sandcastle for three nights (August 20-23) and it was as good as we could have ever wanted. Such a beautiful place and very relaxing. We arrived at around 11 on Monday and met both Sandy and Tina (both bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and give us... More

Just got back from a week at Sand Castle. Great time!! We stayed in the AC room. Room was what we expected, clean and functional. It is not a 5 star resort, but we neither paid for one or expectedd it on a little laid back island. Water pressure was better than expected for an island without a real water... More

Ok, after reading the other reviews I felt compelled to write a review. I was on the Island, Oct 9-11th. I loved it so much I booked it agian for this October and plan on many returns to Jost Van Dyke and Sandcastles. I found SandCastles after being one of those many day-excursion visitors that was complained about in another... More

This was not my first trip to Sandcastle and certainly won't be my last. I have been traveling to the West Indies for close to 30 years and put this on the top of my list of experiences. The whole staff looks after your every need. Sandy greeted me like an old friend and Roger got my bags to my... More

My husband and I just returned from 7 days at Sand Castle on Jost Van Dyke. October 7-14, 2006. I found Sandy, the manager to be terse and not a people person. We arrived Saturday night around 7 only to find out the hotel restaurant was not open and nothing on the island was open yet because of the season.... More

We have just returned from 5 days at the Sandcastle in Jost van Dyke. This truly has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! White sand, blue water, and palm trees abound. The beach is all but deserted before 11:00 AM and after 4:00 PM. Meals at the Sandcastle are great - worth the $35 fixed... More
