We love the No Frills atmosphere.

When Whipple the Sandcastle hotel be open for business?
Is it a good place for singles?
Why are there no reviews from 2017? Have you been open? Anything changed?
Do any rooms have twin or 2 double beds?
All of our rooms are king beds and two persons per room.

We will be at the Sandcastle in May and are very excited! I noticed that it now says "elegant casual" dress for dinner. Can someone tell me what that means? My husband was hoping to wear shorts, are they still allowed? Many thanks in advance!
yes, shorts are very acceptable. simply no cover-ups, swimsuits, etc.

"get a beachfront cottage"
"A/C room , unless you like the Caribbean night heat."
"Beachfront rooms speak for themselves!"
"AC rooms or beach front, not garden cottages"
"The property has 6 guest rooms - so book early! Bring your best bug repellent as they can be a bit intense at varying times during the day."
