When we walked in, it was more than adequate. It had a fridge, which the maids filled with ice and water. It had a separate living room which had windows everywhere to see the most beautiful beach in the world. It has a big bedroom and an outdoor shower. All complete with Character. This became my most memorable stay in...

While this is not a five-star hotel it is one of our favorite places in the entire world to spend several days relaxing and enjoying our fellow guests. While my first experience with the Soggy Dollar bar was 30 or so years ago, we have stayed at the Sandcastle Hotel the past couple of years for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We...

... we booked the same week for 2017. The staff is amazing; all the ladies that work here are really what makes this place so special. The rooms are well-appointed, drinks come fast, food is great, and the beach is right there. There's really nothing more to ask for. If you want to party, you got it. If you want...

What a fantastically relaxing and wonderful week. The staff was wonderful and we felt like family within a few hours. We stayed in the no A/C unit and never had a problem. While it would be a bit warm during the day if you stayed in the room, that was not a problem for us as we were on the...

My husband and I were one of the day trippers five years ago and always talked about heading back and staying at the hotel. We finally made it and it exceeded our expectations. We were warmly greeted upon arrival by Claire who turns out to be from our same home town. Good sign from the start. They take your picture...

This was our first time to jost van dyke and the sandcastle hotel. Communication with the staff and reservations was timely and accurate. They were very helpful throughout the process. We stayed in one of the Ac rooms and it was fine. Difficult I am sure to keep clean right on the beach and we were barefoot most all the...

We have just returned from a perfect four night stay; arrived Monday, August 8 and departed Friday, August 12. Oh how I miss waking up in the morning and sipping coffee on that beautiful secluded beach. I can not say enough wonderful things about our stay but I will start with the room. We stayed in AC room #6. It...

We visited the Sandcastle hotel at the beginning of July. Stayed in beach cottage #2. As others have noted, accommodations at the hotel are very basic. This is not a resort but the cottages are simple and clean. We chose a room without an A/C unit. In hindsite, we should have booked a room with A/C as even with the...

This was our first trip staying on JVD and we already booked next June to return. We got to the Sandcastle and Claire took our bags and then notified us quickly that our room was ready early. We booked an AC unit and the view was still beautiful- a mix of sea, sand and gardens. The staff knew us by...
