This was our first time to jost van dyke and the sandcastle hotel. Communication with the staff and reservations was timely and accurate. They were very helpful throughout the process. We stayed in one of the Ac rooms and it was fine. Difficult I am sure to keep clean right on the beach and we were barefoot most all the... More

We have just returned from a perfect four night stay; arrived Monday, August 8 and departed Friday, August 12. Oh how I miss waking up in the morning and sipping coffee on that beautiful secluded beach. I can not say enough wonderful things about our stay but I will start with the room. We stayed in AC room #6. It... More

We visited the Sandcastle hotel at the beginning of July. Stayed in beach cottage #2. As others have noted, accommodations at the hotel are very basic. This is not a resort but the cottages are simple and clean. We chose a room without an A/C unit. In hindsite, we should have booked a room with A/C as even with the... More

This was our first trip staying on JVD and we already booked next June to return. We got to the Sandcastle and Claire took our bags and then notified us quickly that our room was ready early. We booked an AC unit and the view was still beautiful- a mix of sea, sand and gardens. The staff knew us by... More

We kinda call this luxury camping ... Clearly not a traditional 5 star experience ... But the location is perfect ... The staff is outstanding ... And the cottages / rooms are nicely furnished. Early mornings and evenings ... You have the beach to yourselves .. Then around 10 AM the boats start to arrive & its people watching &... More

I was reluctant to book the Sandcastle Hotel, due to the sheer amount of boaters I have seen in the past converging on the Soggy Dollar Bar attached to the hotel. Our Garden Cottage was perfect! The staff was great, and there were separate areas on the beach for guests only! We were treated great by the bar staff at... More

We have been to Jost for the day several times but this was our first time staying. The staff at Sandcastle were amazing - extremely attentive and focused on ensuring our stay was relaxing and worry free. Rooms were clean - food was amazing and the bartenders (especially JJ) were always ready to show us a good time. Can't say... More

To start off, the location of this hotel is unbeatable. White Bay has some of the most whites,t softest sands and the clearest waters in the Caribbean. The hotel is comprised of 6 villas/ huts. 2 right at the beach, and the other 4 progressively further back. The furthest room is only 20 seconds walking distance from the front rooms.... More

After 4 years and 3 of these at Soggy Dollar and Sandcastle it's time to call it a day due to the subtle but distinct changes that have occurred. At first it is paradise but now the standard of service and the creeping habit of disregarding residents, treating them just like the masses that pour off the multitude of boats... More

We have been day tripping to the Soggy Dollar on and off for the last 15 years as White Bay is our most favorite spot in the Caribbean. On our most recent visit my wife and I decided to stay at the Sandcastle and I am so glad we did, I wish we had stayed longer. We stayed in one... More
