worth the $

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
We enjoyed our time at the Sandcastle. the pros out weighed the cons 2 to 1. A 4 P.M. check in time seemed about 2 hours later than what I would have wished for but you can't have it all. my biggest disappointment was the lack of child based water entertainment, the pools were nice, all were heated but left a lot to be desired by my daughters. But I knew the pools were just pools before going. They liked the lazy river but that was about it. The poolside bar was ok, a bit pricey but good drinks, and the bartender was a blast. I noticed others with their children but we were in the minority and that was fine, my kids are well behaved and did not bother the others. Rooms are just standard, nothing fancy but nice and clean. I know we will return one day soon.

Dining

Do not go to Myrtle Beach and pass up Broadway at the Beach! that is the highlight of my oldest daughters trip. I have groomed her into a pretty good parrothead and she as I LOVE Margaritaville. They say that place in Orlando is the "happiest place on earth", NOT ME give me Margaritaville any day of the week and I am the happiest person on earth. But beyond that one highlight the whole place is well put together and you can spend 2 days there and still not see it all. The aquarium is good but I enjoy the one in Gatlinburg, TN better.

Great Value

Would recommend Sat, Aug 9, 2008
This a great value and the convenient location is accessable to all the major attractions and dining. The one bedroom efficiency was perfect for two people, the private balcony was great and the kitchen, while small was more than sufficient for our needs. The hotel was very full but we heard no noise from other rooms the entire time we were there.

My Stay

Would not recommend Mon, Feb 11, 2008
As the hotel being on the beach was perfect.I also had a bedroom , kitchen efficient and another room with a fold up bed and sitting area with another TV.I also had a balcony with ocean view which was very nice. my dissatisfaction was with the 20 minute check-in and the fact that the wireless internet was free as long as you could be in the lobby if not you had to pay to rent an ethernet cable for 10.00 cash only to get internet. As i was on a business/ pleasure trip this was a great henderence for me.

Shopping hint

It was on ocean blvd. so it is next to alot of small shops and some dining spots.

Comfortable

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 23, 2007
The room was a small but comfortable, clean efficency. It had an oceanview, but the balcony was very small and the weather was too hot to be able to sit out there comfortably. It was quiet and we were able to park the car out of the elements near our room. I was mainly expecting someplace a little more fancy for the price I paid. I didn't consider it much of a resort. The location in S. Myrtle Beach was good. We ended up taking 3rd avenue out to Hwy 501 to Medieval Times Theatre and Tanger Outlet. The Hwy 31 bypass saved a lot of time going around Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach.

Shopping hint

Broadway at the Beach, Dixie Stampede are farther away but easily reached by the Hwy 17 bypass.

My review of Sandcastle Oceanfront Resort South Beach

Would recommend Sat, Sep 8, 2007
The Sandcastle Resort was comfortable. There was not much room for hanging clothes and the entrance was tight for the luggage cart. There was ample rom for two adults but would have been crowded for a family of four - even though there were two queen beds. The balcony was private and had a very nice view of the ocean and the pool area but was also quite small. There was not much within walking distance and the restaurant was not open for the evening meal.

Typical beach hotel

Would recommend Sun, Aug 19, 2007
The hotel was exactly what I expect to find at a beachfront hotel. It was adequate and clean. The room was a nice size. The pool seemed kind of small for the size of the hotel, but there is also a lazy river, and of course, the ocean. I like that it is located where there are posted lifeguards on the beach.

Shopping hint

The Tanger Outlets are on 501 and are worth the drive.

Would not wish this on anyone!

Would not recommend Sun, Aug 19, 2007
This hotel eoom was very bad, the blanket in the room should had been trashed months ago. The staff was fairly good, but the check in was poor. The check tried to get me booked on a tour, I explained I been on the road for 8 hours and would check later. I walked into the room and they were calling on the phone about the same thing. The carpet looked like it had never been shampoo and the room needed a good cleaning from one to the other. I will not every stay in this hotel again.
