This will be my 23rd year in a row to visit the Castle! I can't imagine staying anywhere else! We reserve the same hotel room (one of the beach cottages) every year for two weeks in July. It is our home-away-from-home in the summer. We love the Olympic size swimming pool and how close we are to the beach. The Coconuts waitresses walk both the beach and pool deck taking drink and food orders and bring them right to you. The hotel is family oriented, as we see the same happy families visiting every year, but it offers something for everyone! There is a bar and restaurant on-site as well as live entertainment daily.
One of our favorite parts has always been the kids activities organized by Lady Sunshine. There are different activities like crafts, story-telling, balloon twisting, and the famous face painting Sunday thru Friday. The Castle wouldn't be the same without her!
Our cottage is always clean and the staff never hesitates to bring additional amenities or service our room if needed. Upgrades to our room are noticed every year and are very nice. The hotel is only a few streets away from the boardwalk (27th street) and it is easy to walk to. The convention center is across the street from the Castle and is easy to get to as well. There is plenty of parking as well around the hotel, some of which is gated and only accessible to Castle vacationers.
We are excited to visit this year and will be here for many more!
