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...

This was such a relaxing and wonderful hotel. Right on the beach, the water is clear and warm, snorkel right from your hotel room. Staff is nice and helpful and friendly. Restaurant food is good and bar staff are welcoming. They have nice details, like a book collection you can borrow from, and laundry machine you can use. We were...

The lovely Irma welcomed us at the front desk. Our room was extremely clean and tastefully decorated. The pool deck and beach are prestine. Snorkeling right in front of the hotel is very exciting. The restaurant has a nice selection and everything we tried was delicious.

Going to give this place a 3.8 hinge rating (scale of 0-5) only based on our level of room. Based on seeing some of the other rooms ($Villa's$) I would have to give this place a 4.3 hinge rating. The place is older (refurbished in 2002) and was originally built by Randall McDonald who was a great admirer of the...

Sandcastles is a wonderful small hotel directly on one of the best beaches on St Croix. It has a small pool and a restaurant called Beachside Cafe. It is in the process of being sold to some gentlemen from LA who have been here many times and love the place as much as the rest of us. I am sure...

We had one bedroom suite with balcony in this hotel and we really did enjoy our holiday here. There was a basic kitchen with all necessary things for cooking. Pool was very small but who needs pool when you have this great beach just next to the hotel?! We loved walking on the beach and you can actually walk almost...

Wow, crab burger. Sounds odd but tastes great. Good French fries. Great location right on water close to a very nice beach. Staff were very friendly and attentive. This is on the top of our food list if we visit st crioz again. We only went to the restaurant.

What a treasure! Excellent food, relaxed atmosphere. I have traveled to Sand Castle many, many times over the years. This place never disappoints! Friendly people, and great culture! The snorkeling from the beach at Sand Castle is among the best on the Island!
