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

Most units have private owners. Most units are booked up a lot and are upgraded regularly. We stay here for at least a week every year, sometimes two. We have never had a bad unit. Each view is unique and each unit is furnished by the owner. My wife and I like the pool, hot tub, boardwalk to the beach,... More

Sandcastle Condominiums is an excellent place to stay as the property overlooks the beach. An easy walk over the boardwalk to get to the beautiful beach and warm, Gulf water. I find this beach pure heaven. Sandcastle accommodations can vary from unit to unit but check them out online. For couples, an efficiency unit with a small kitchen. Beach view... More

I rented a room from a private owner. It was nice, clean, and updated. The condo facility is a bit old, and you can tell right off the back. The elevator was old and sketchy. The floor stayed wet from people coming from the beach and pool. We opted for the stairs the majority of our stay. The gym was... More

This was my first trip to Port Aransas. My husband and I stayed in a studio room on the 2nd floor. We a nice balcony that overlooked the pool and had a good view of the beach. In this area as far as I can tell this place is about as close to beach as you can get. The complex... More

Stayed here for the weekend with my daughter and grandchildren. We all loved it. They thought of everything from ziplock bags to bathroom soap. All you really need to bring is your food, clothes and personal toiletries. Close enough to everything Port A has to offer.

We paid what was seemed to us to be far more money than we should have had to for a plain, ugly, rundown condominium. The toilet was a low water usage (I guess) and rarely flushed completely. The grass at the complex needed mowing and the primary elevator was out of service during the first of our 3-day stay. The... More

Room was very nice. Recently remodeled. Would have given 5 stars if the elevator near our room didn't break and wasn't fixed until after the weekend. The view of the shipping channel was amazing. Great short walk to the beach. The beach in front of condo is blocked off from cars, so you don't have to worry about cars driving... More

There are MAJOR differences unit to unit! Be sure to check online - we planned a last minute trip which was a huge mistake. My friend goes every year and loves it but based on the quality of unit we got I won't go back. In addition to the threadbare carpet, pitiful kitchen equipment quality, and ancient fixtures the wifi... More
