What an incredible vacation, Sand Castle on the Beach was the perfect place to unwind, relax and still feel at home. The owners and their staff were amazing, Especially Tawnya!!! The room, grounds, pool, and beach immaculate. We were with a group of 12 and everyone loved Sand Castle. The owners checked us in, came around and made sure everything was ok, and sat with us around the pool just to chat. We had a rental car that the battery died, the owners borrowed us their jumper cables. It’s like spending time with great friends at the Sand Castle, the employees said that the owners are the best boss they had ever had. If you go make sure you head to the bar and order a Pain Killer or 2. We will definitely be back!!!!

We stayed at Sandcastle on the Beach for 6 days in August 2020 for our “mini” honeymoon. Even though St. Croix was under a stay at home order, the staff made sure to make us feel taken care of. Everyone was great, and the property is beautiful. It is great for a low key vacation, if you want to just spend your days on the beach which is mere steps away. The water is beautiful, and the various reefs attract some very interesting fish that make snorkeling fun. We would definitely come back!

I want to start this review by saying the mark of a great establishment is the ownership! Ted and Chris (owners)have gone above what anyone can call; extraordinary. From the front desk staff (Michelle and Co.) to the housekeeping staff, the stay at Sand Castle on the Beach was wonderful. The maintenance and upkeep of this location is outstanding. The grounds are kept immaculate. The room was very clean and well maintained and decorated in the island contemporary design. The beach and pool were PRISTINE! I had the pleasure of spending time with the owners during passing conversation. These gentlemen were engaged in the stay of every guest at their property. The staff was so friendly, I found myself saying hello and good morning, more than I have in 20 years living in New York. The bar staff; KT, Ayanna, and Trevor (including the Bar manager) were all exceptional! The food was plentiful and the bang bang shrimp paired well with any cocktail. During my stay, they didn’t carry the scotch I tend to prefer. The next day following a conversation, Chris and Ted had it at the bar. From providing fresh Aloe leaf for sunburn, to growing their own mint for cocktails, the Sand Castle on the Beach MUST be a destination visited not only during the current covid issue, but at anytime you want an island get away within the USVI. I will be back and back again. This location not only changed my impression of the USVI, but has truly provided a location for travel and a get away, but only if there is room for me at the Sand Castle on the Beach! Thankful for you all for providing an exceptional and much needed escape! Donald

Excellent hotel with excellent location, extremely clean & comfortable . Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed by the owners Chris and Ted who made this trip and stay enjoyable, interesting, comfortable and really special with their advices & tips about the area, and help throughout my stay. During time of Covid I was hesitant how I would feel, but I can assure you they were very serious about disinfecting everywhere, and made sure guests wear masks at public areas, yet made it with a friendly smile. I definetely recommend this hotel to everybody! It's a true sample of excellent hospitality. I travel the world, but places such as Sand Castle on the Beach makes you want to return as it feels like it’s your home away from home. Thank you again T&C and staff for a perfect vacation. I miss you and the hotel very much already. - Lior

Sand Castle by the sea is a hidden gem in St Croix. The owners and staff treat you like family and cater to your every need. We had a fantastic time during our stay. I highly recommend this place. The beach is one of the best on the island. The restaurant was excellent with a spectacular ocean view. This place is relaxing and makes you feel happy!
