If your goal is to relax on a beautiful beach and have a comfortable and low key vacation, then this is the spot. The rooms are huge and are like small apartments. We had a kitchen and living room and balcony. Having coffee overlooking the garden was so relaxing. The hotel has beach gear, kayaks, and provides towels. Everyone is...

Friendly staff, good service, excellent meal. New owner introduced himself and made us feel welcome. Best place we found for a great meal, prices were reasonable. We drove from Christenstad and it was well worth the trip. Entrance, lobby, and restaurant classy. Would not mind booking there for return visit.

We spent 2 nights at Sand Castle on the Beach. Upon arriving, we were upgraded to the best room in the place, thanks Erma! The front desk staff is incredibly helpful, you can borrow towels and rent snorkel gear here. Chris, one of the management staff, was always checking on us and asking how he could improve our experience. The...

I am in awe of the miles of unspoiled soft sandy beaches of St Croix. The friendly restful Carribean seaport town of Fredricksted, at the western end of the island is being transformed. Age old Danish wharehouses and sugar shacks are being refurbished into charming farm/ocean to table restaurants and quaint storefronts. Just steps from a beach that reminds me...

We read about this on cruise compete and tripadvisor. We walked from the ship to the hotel. It took us about 15-20 minutes. The beach is actually very nice and we really enjoyed the relaxing day. The food and drinks were excellent. I would recommend the pistachio drink, as it was probably my favorite drink of the whole trip. The...

We visited Sand Castle on the Beach during our recent holiday cruise; it is an easy 20 minute walk from the cruise port. The beach is beautiful and quiet with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. There is also a bar and restaurant so it's easy to spend the entire day here. This ended up being one of our favorite stops...

We love the west side of St. Croix. It is quiet and the beaches are wonderful. We stayed at Sandcastles for the first time. They are under new ownership and were wonderfully attentive to all our needs. The restaurant is not open every day, which was disappointing, but they promised that they were working towards it being open 7 days...

We just returned from a magical week on St. Croix at Sand Castle on the Beach. Our beachfront room was comfortable and nicely furnished, with a kitchen that allowed us to eat on our private deck if we wished. The hotel staff was always friendly and ready to make our stay the best it could possibly be. The beach is...

Sand Castle is a quick $5 shuttle from the pier. A $10 per person fee gets you a chaise, umbrella, and welcome rum punch. The beach is great for swimming and there is a restaurant and pool also. Good luck to new owners!

Went there for lunch and after 25 minutes of waiting at our table we still had yet to see a server. After going to find one I witnessed the kitchen staff making numerous mistakes with orders, including placing tomatoes on a sandwich to a table who specifically stated they were allergic to them. The response "just take them off." Not...
