Front desk staff were outstanding.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, Poor breakfast
Frm the moment we checked in until we checked out we were made to feel very welcome. Front desk staff were awesome. Room was well appointed, roomy and very comfortable. The only small negetive was that the dining facilities were closed on Tuesadys and there was a charity event on the Wed that necessitated our dning elsewhere or cooking for ourselves which was not a problem as we had a full kitchen. Also it is necessary to have a rental car if you want to explore at all as cab fares are very high. It cost us $30. to go a few blocks to a local gracery store.

Wonderful Experience

The staff was amazing friendly especially Keisha. Ted the owner was very available and friendly which gave my stay a very personal touch. It sits literally on the beach so you can crawl out of bed and go for a dip. Friends of mine stayed at another location and came to this hotel on more than one occasion for the food and atmosphere. Overall a top notch experience and I cannot wait to return.

What a great place to stay

This was a quiet, out of the way place to stay. We were right on the beach With only 21 rooms we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. This was a february stay,I am told it gets more busy in the summer.

Best beach with nicest people!!

Pros: So very much! Besides being on the nicest beach where it is so easy to get in and swim, the owners and staff are wonderful.
Cons: Not much. Just be aware that if you take an economy room and it is near the lobby, you will hear anyone leaving for an early flight or arriving late.
Everyone at the Sand Castle is so friendly and helpful. It is also very lovely and secluded without feeling desolate. When the restaurant (which is very good) is not open, you almost feel like you rented a house with a dozen other people. The locals that came to the beach were so easy-going and great that it still seemed that we, as guests, were at a private beach--and OH, the water is so perfect!!

Nice Little Hotel

  Sand Castle is great if you want to get away and avoid tourist congestion. It is located outside the nearest town (Fredericksted) but within walking distance (it took about 15 minutes to walk to town). Their beachfront is great for swimming and snorkeling with several rock formations close to shore. I saw an incredible amount of awesome sea life while snorkeling including a sea turtle, pufferfish, and lionfish.   The staff was very nice and accomodating and the rooms were nice. We were actually upgraded to a garden view room upon arrival which was a nice surprise. Rooms have tv, fridge, mini kitchenette, bathroom, king size bed, basically everything you need while you're there since most of the time is spent enjoying the beautiful St. Croix weather.   I would recommend getting a rental car to explore the island unless you sit on the beach every day. As I said the hotel is a bit isolated. Cabs have reasonable prices but it adds up over the duration of the trip.   Overall Sand Castle was very affordable and good bang for your buck!

Best Beach on the island HANDS DOWN!

We landed on the island after dark... Driving to Fredricksted after dark is really really creepy! The directions on the website was spot on, very easy to find! Fredricksted is definitely the old part of the island. The hotel has security guards and cameras so we felt very safe! The hotel stuff was really awesome too! The hotel restaurant was very good but closed Tuesday and Wednesday of our stay. Bruno was awesome! :)  Ok here is my complaint.... Besides the sketchy neighborhood.... Our room was SMALL. It was on the 3rd floor (very narrow stairs). We had a queen size bed which took up 90% of the room. Plus side was there was a TV, microwave, a few dishes, and a small fridge. The bathroom had a nice shower but other than that was fairly small as well. We weren't in our room much so it wasn't that much of a concern BUT I never dreamed it would have been so small! Also the wifi only worked in the downstairs lobby. We toured every part of the island and this beach was BY FAR the calmest, most relaxed beach! It was more of an adult atmosphere.... I don't remember seeing any children which was nice since we went for our anniversary :)  We would probably more than likely return here (and pay a little more for a bigger room)! Overall very please!!!!

The hotel is located on the west end of the island, where the nicest beaches are. It is really beautiful, right at the water and no other hotels around! Their food is very good (even though the breakfast buffet is disappointing, they don't offer any fruit, and not even cheese!), and the staff is super friendly (except Sheryl, who is super unfriendly and even mean in a way! Unfortunately she is one of the owners). I love Bruno the most, best entertainer ever and always in a good mood! Also the ladies at the reception helped out a lot, even borrowed us their mosquito spray because we had too many of them in our room and sprayed our room out! They cleaned our room every day and provided us with fresh towels every day. The location and the hotel itself is BEAUTIFUL and we will definitely come back!

Right on the beach!

I stayed here 15 years ago and several owners too. I always wanted to return and am so glad I did. Now I can not wait to return. Nice hotel, nice people, good food, perfect weather.

A quiet, "getaway" feel, small beach hotel experience with a gourmet restaurant and spectacular sunsets.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, wonderful beachside restaurant
Cons: must use local taxi or rental car for easy access
Sand Castle on the Beach, though not Truly remote, has the feel of a quiet beach. It is truly beachside, the beach only a few steps from any room. Cafe On The Beach, the restaurant associated with the hotel, is predominantly open air with a good chef, full bar, and great food. Complimentary continental breakfast. Beachside patios and swimming pool. Rooms were entirely adequate and the hotel staff was helpful, friendly and polite. We would have no problem making a second, and even longer visit than our initial 4 night stay Having a rental car is useful, as local taxis may take a few minutes to arrive. (In St. Croix traffic drives on the left side of the road, as in Britain.) The hotel staff was VERY HELPFUL in arranging for transportation, scuba or other side trips, etc.
