The weather was cold, rainy and windy; but as with all other stays (since the 90's,) the Sandcastle is awesome. They have a great pool and great beach access. We stayed in 216 this time, and it is probably the most beautifully decorated unit we've ever stayed in. We'll ask for it again Close to everything. We won't stay anywhere... More

Thank you for this lovely review! 216 is a great beach condo and we are lucky to have owners that strive to make their individual condos the perfect escape, not only for themselves, but for our guests as well! We are so glad to hear that you have been coming back year after year and thank you for that. Hopefully... More

The Sandcastle Condos are wonderful. I've been coming here for many years and can't wait to get back! The building is older but the service is great and and grounds are as tropical and lovely as any island get away. The gorgeous, well maintained pool and handy beach front is scaped every morning in the summer. Will continue to return!

First floor right above the hot tubs. The sliding doors are thick and block out most of the noise. If we were still in prime partying years it would have been awesome. But the view of the pool was awesome as well as the gulf. Parking was a little crazy on the weekends, but ample parking is available. They have... More

Had a fantastic room with a fantastic view...the front office staff was 'bend over backwards' nice...I've figured out that if it's great checking in then it'll be great the whole time...it's amazing how the front desk sets the tone of the stay...needless to say, the stay was great!!!
