There is a reason music videos are filmed on this beach - the water and beach are absolutely stunning. The beach does get very crowded during the day but we expected that (b/c of reviews we read before booking the hotel) and it does make for good people watching (by 6:00 p.m., the day trippers evacuate). The Sandcastle is the... More

Are you a person who wants to dress up each night and enjoy nightlife? Do you want to see throngs of people at breakfast every morning competing over the buffet? Do you like to wear shoes and socks? If you are, you need not read on -- this is NOT the place for you! As all the other reviewers have... More

My husband and I stayed in Cottage #1 for 2 nights & 3 days early August. We had visited White Bay Beach last January and made plans to stay this year. The beach is so beautiful. Soft white sand and turquoise waters were all I needed. At night, the stars come out and you've got the place to yourself! We... More

My husband and I stayed in a Garden Cottage for 3 nights during the last week of May. We knew what to expect of the room prior to arrival so we made sure we applied our bug spray and came with an open mind because White Bay is an incredible beach. The food was delicious and the staff was great-Shaneek... More

We had been to Jost several times on day charters from St John (USVI) over the last several years, and we always wanted to spend more time there. So we booked two nights May 16 & 17. These were the only dates available in May. So we made the quick trip down. First night in St Thomas, then the 8:00... More

After many years visiting the BVI, recent visits to the Sandcastle have been troublesome. But we're happy to report that the management has changed this year and things have really improved. As the reviews often imply, if beach and sun, reading, and good food are your thing, this is the place. If you want a swimming pool, TV, and other... More

So, I am now home in Maine after our 3rd 10 day stay at Sandcastle and am trying to decide if I want to write another review. I kind of feel like I want to keep all the information to myself so that its kept just the way it is but that's not really fair. We traveled from Maine to... More

A beautiful facility in a beautiful location. The Soggy Dollar and the beach are busy in the afternoons (weekends especially), but before 1 and after 5 or 6, you (and the half dozen other hotel guests are the only ones there. The room was spotless, tv-less, radio-less and phone-less (the AT&T cell service on the beach is excellent, thanks to... More

My wife and I have stayed at Sandcastle several times. The owners and service personnel have always been very courteous and provided excellent service. We had a wonderful time. You can read other reviews for all the amenities but there are some things potential guests may want to know. If this is your first trip to Jost van Dyke pay... More
