A fun out of the way place right on the beach! Very friendly staff and a great location with a good restaurant.

This hotel has it all: the beach, two clean swimming pools, kayaks, continental breakfasts (with titi bread and raisin buns baked locally), good internet, ample and convenient parking, and the beach side cafe (for rum drinks and delicious food). I highly recommend this hotel.

Chris and the staff at Sand Castle on the Beach are amazing!! I love that they are at the end of the Beach and a short walk to everything in Fredericksted! I had the best time there and the food at their restaurant is delicious!

We arrived early, before we could check into the room so they let us change and spend the day on the beach until our room was ready. They have a beautiful beach to take long walks on and to swim in. all the staff were Friendly and helpful anytime you needed anything. We will be going back to Sand Castle next year.

Not representing on site as actually is. This is a motel on the beach, not a resort. Very friendly staff and worked hard. Complained about the room and nothing was done. No chair or phone and because of the hurricane, still no cable. Continental breakfast was hardboiled eggs, cheesr slices, and rolls. Everyday. Great food at resturaunt, but not open for meals everyday. Needs a lot of work. Not worth what I paid at all. Quite and relaxed atmosphere was the best quality.

Put my dad up here because he loves the beautiful beach on this side of St Croix. The staff was incredibly inviting and kind and the cleaning crew was so sweet to my dad who is elderly. The only downside was we came near Easter and there were tons of campers who tended to made noise at night. This was obviously beyond the hotel's control. Overall I'd recommend this just for the friendly and small town atmosphere alone. The Beachside Cafe also has an arrangement whereby you can sit by the hotel pool steps from the beach and enjoy their full menu.

Very helpful front desk staff. Nice room w comfy bed for price. Great beach & fantastic Sunday brunch. Arranged cabs to airport.

Just a great place stay relax enjoy the beautiful sunshine and Beach great place

Hotel staff was polite and friendly...front desk agent was realm nice and made my stay worth it.

The women at the front desk were nothing short of a delight as well as all the other staff and cleaning crew. You just need to keep your mind that St. Croix is not the Maldives and is an island that has a local community, that has somewhat suffered poor economic times. ABSOLUTELY DO NOT VISIT FREEDOM CITY SURF BOARD AND GRILL even as it is right there if you get off a cruise ship, go one beach north to Rainbow Beach.At Freedom City we waited over 1.5 hours for food service which ended up being FROZEN shrimp on a stick served by a waitress with a VERY BAD attitude, the bar staff had a disgusting attitude and we saw one of the staff out front beating his dog hard with a stick while holding the dog to the ground. This venue could have ruined my vacation with the experience we had there but thankfully the hosts on the boat trip to beautiful Buck Island were wonderful and jet skiing on Rainbow beach and the bar there were fabulous. Snorkeling out front of the hotel was lovely, try to get to snorkel under the pier when the ships aren't in. Christiansted is cute, Fredricksted was closed a lot but lively when the ships came in. Overall it was a wonderful stay with the beachfront hotel, free kayaks, great service. Would totally recommend it as long as you keep in mind that the appliances are not Moen and top end because you are on an island with a lot of unique history. Met some GREAT folks at the hotel also staying there, everyone was relaxed and friendly in that environment.

NICE LITTLE RESORT OUT OF THE CITY-ALL GUESTS WERE FRIENDLY AS WELL AS THE RESORT STAFF-THE RESTAURANT FOOD AND STAFF WERE GREAT(IT'S TOO BAD THEY AREN'T OPEN EVERYDAY)-THE SNORKELING WAS AWESOME AND THE BEACH HAD TO BE THE BEST ON THE ISLAND-MY WIFE AND I CERTAINLY ENJOYED THE BEACH LIFE!

Friendly staff and patrons made this hotel worth the money.

Sand Castle at the Beach was as advertised . It was a very laid back atmosphere with a nice beach and excellent restaurant. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Although it is an older facility and not the fanciest of accommodations, the hotel was well kept and in my opinion preferable to the bigger resorts. The neighborhood surrounding Sand Castle isn't the best but not horrible. I have no problem recommending this hotel and would go back there in a heart beat. With a rental car, it was very easy to get other attractions on St. Criox from Sand Castle. Strongly recommend renting a car.

The hotel was very nice and clean and on a beautiful beach! Staff was very friendly. The only thing I didn't like was that the restaurant and beach bar were closed a couple of days during the week. Other than that, it was a beautiful place!

We really liked being near Frederiksted compared to Christiansted. Right on a sandy beach. Staff was friendly and helpful. Intermittent hot water; understandable considering the challenge of fresh water on the island..

Sand Castle is a fantastic value and beautiful location. Not particularly fancy but very authentic. Natural surroundings and spectacular views. This is a quiet place and while we were there- it was a refuge with no children or rowdy partiers. On an early morning a pod of dolphins swam by. An iguana greeted us the first day and cute geckos are a common site. Very laid back environment and surprisingly superb restaurant. On several occasions after exploring the island we rushed back just to dine in the restaurant which closes at 9. The staff are great. Very helpful warm and welcoming. We definately will return.

I took my lady on a last minute trip and based on reviews I found on this website, chose Sandcastle. Located on pretty remote beach, Sandcastle was beautiful. The room was basic, but, all we needed. Didn't spend a lot of time there. Food was great, staff awesome! Bruno will make you laugh....Hard! Scott was great behind the bar. Irma and Sparkle will help with anything. Simone was a sweetheart! Only things, restaurant not open on Tues and Wed. wish the bar was though. A couple additions to breakfast would be nice, cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter and milk, at least. Would definitely go back!

When my wife and i got to this resort, i couldnt believe we had the entire each to ourselves (almost). the rooms could have been better but i loved the peacefulness. They staff was the best!

Great Staff, very helpful and kind. Room Views are beatiful.

lovely hotel on the west end - excellent staff!

Everyone

Put my dad up here because he loves the beautiful beach on this side of St Croix. The staff was incredibly inviting and kind and the cleaning crew was so sweet to my dad who is elderly. The only downside was we came near Easter and there were tons of campers who tended to made noise at night. This was obviously beyond the hotel's control. Overall I'd recommend this just for the friendly and small town atmosphere alone. The Beachside Cafe also has an arrangement whereby you can sit by the hotel pool steps from the beach and enjoy their full menu.
