We stay in unit 325 for 3 nights in August. Nice view of the pool and beach. One comment--the patio furniture needs major cleaning or replacing in this unit. Pool was nice. Monitoring of the pool area is needed for guests who cannot follow the rules; glass bottles in the pool area. Lots of folks brought ice chests down and... More

We have been coming to Port Aransas since I was a teenager (now in my late 40's). We've stayed at many of the condos on the island. Time and time again, we end up coming back to Sandcastle! In our experience, it's the best value on the island! Although the property is starting to show its age and could use... More

I have stayed at the Sandcastle many times and I love it! Each condo is different and some are so well taken care of and others not so much. I always try to stay on the jetty side for the view. The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is old but clean. Love the pool and hot tub and... More

The Sandcastle is a bit hidden away, a few blocks off the main drag toward the beach. It is as beachfront as you can get, and has a private walkway to the beach. No restaurant on site, but nice staff, great owners, and clean enough. What does that mean? Hey, if you need someone standing beside you with a hankie... More

Family has been coming back here every year for the past 5+ years. Very good upkeep, not too expensive but still very nice. Easy beach access and nice pool, not too strict on pool rules either. Very safe area, kind of middle of the island and very close to good restaurants and shops.

We loved our stay in #308 and that it was so close to the beach. We had no issues during our stay. Staff and guests were all friendly. We only used the pool once since the beach was so close. My only complaint was the shower head was a little low for tall people! Added bonus were the turtles by... More

This is the second year our extended family has met for an August vacation at the Sandcastle Condominiums, and I'm sure we will return. There are condos in all sizes, and activities to suit all ages--which, in the case of our family, ranged from 4 years to 74. One plus is that you get to preview the interior of each... More

There are several choices around Port A, you have to decide what is important to you. Sandcastle worked out great for us We rented room 105 from the owner rather than through the condo. Nevertheless, the service was still friendly. Pros: Nice, well maintained pool and grounds. Security was often visible. Beach is easily accessible, but not crowded Nice view... More
