we stayed two nights at helmsley sandcastle--wish it were more. everything great--right from check-in--Matt at the front desk was pleasant, helpful, and accomodating. we were able to get a free upgrade to beachfront room. parking is free and covered which i always appreciate. pool is large, gift shop interesting and food great at the on-site restaurants--however, be aware that 16% gratuity already added (we weren't aware of this and consequently tipped very generously). beach is outstanding--rooms were extremely clean and toiletry amenities and coffee for the room were plentiful. our maid patty did an excellent job! would definitely return for a longer stay!!
