I liked so much this castle. It´s like a museum and we can go to the main street, visit the house and the castle (there is a beautiful view there)

Spectacular view from the top of the tower of the harbor and city. Take the 99 steps to the base of the castle, then walk around to get to the entrance. I think you appreciate the view much more than driving in a taxi to the top, but it is a little exerting and may be tough on small children and seniors. It's $10.00 per person, but I feel worth the value. A short history of Blackbeard is included by a guide. Nice little bar to have a cool drink and enjoy the view. Also included with your entry fee is the ability to enjoy the pool and lounge chairs there, you don't have to be a hotel guest.

I would agree with other reviews... as a historic attraction (the castle) this is probably not worth the walk up the stairs. However the view is spectacular, the restaurant has great food at reasonable prices, the grounds are beautify and the hotel rooms (at least the one we were in) was fantastic. We needed one night accomodation for 5 adults. Their newly renovated large room has 1 king, 2 single bed and a Queen pull out. 2 full bathrooms. Great value for our needs.

This is by far the best view of the island we say. We went up the look out tower and were in surprised at how much of the island you could see. It was totally worth the taxis ride up! The history is very interesting and my kids enjoyed the pirate museum. We stopped to black beards bar on the way down and had a Bushwacker frozen drink. VERY GOOD!!!
