The room I booked at the last minute was great, the ocean view was amazing, kids loved the pool, staff was very very friendly and they let you stay to use their facilities after checking out. The only thing is the wifi is very spotty and not that sound proof. I'll definitely book this place agin.

There were two bunk beds in the cottage. The upper beds were about 25 to 30 inches to the ceiling because they put the bed boards under the mattress. That also made the guard rails useless. Also, we had keys to lock the door knob but not the deadbolt. Instead of leaving the valuables and tablets in the room, we... More

Hotel is clean staff is friendly. I love coconuts great drinks, pool is a lot of fun. Beach service is great and it is close to board walk. We were able to check in early and we stayed in one of the cottages they provided towels and linens.

The room (North Castle suite) was spacious and clean. The outdoor bar & grill is convenient, as is the onsite restaurant that serves breakfast (including a buffet) and lunch. The hotel is in a good location, right on the beach - short walk to restaurants, mini golf, amusement park, etc. The building itself could use a little TLC here and... More

I needed 2 rooms for a 1 night stay. I felt comfortable booking directly with them over the phone. And fast great service when I arrived. Right on the beach, abt 10 blocks from boardwalk. Great place!

This hotel was able to accomodate our stay the day of the reservation only hours before check in, They seriously took all the responsibility and had everything in place! We even ended up with an apartment rather than a room, including a full bedroom/bathroom, plus kitchen with Living/dining together, plenty of closet space, full fridge, the list goes on!! Perfect...

This hotel had so much to do for adults and kids alike. Perfect views of the ocean, great drinks, good food, and live music each night. There are also daily kids activities. The pool was clean and the staff was very friendly! Only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the cleaning of our room each day could... More

Great location with breath taking views. Great beach and a very nice outdoor restaurant/bar called Coconuts. Big in ground pool if the beach is not your thing. Rooms were a little outdated and wallpaper was peeling off the walls. The bedroom was always warm because the air conditioner was on the opposite side. At 11:30 one night, a couple decided... More

The Castle in the Sand Hotel is a spectacular place to stay. Close to the busy area of OCMD, but far enough away. The staff is on point with everything. Coconuts provides the BEST live entertainment in the area. Absolutely no complaints!!!!
