We stayed at the Sand Castle for eight days during February 2008 and enjoyed every minute. Katie is a great hostess who was always available to provide information and/or suggestions ... without making a pest of herself. We stayed on the lower level and were very comfortable. Our room had bottle water, a refrigerator, microwave and TV ... but we...

Three of us stayed in the sand castle inn and Katie was very accommodating. It was better than staying with a friend. As an example we arrived late and Katie had a meat and cheese plate waiting for us when we arrived. Breakfast every morning was very nice and really tasty. Katie even made everything with soy for us. The...

We have stayed twice at the Sand Castle this year and loved our stay each time. From pick-up at the airport, Katie's great breakfast, going out of their way to make sure we could get wherever we wanted, even if that meant giving us a ride, the hospitality has been great. We decided we wanted to look for a house...

Our second visit to the Sand Castle Inn this year was as delightful as the first. It's just hard to beat a place that is right on the water. Breakfast is served in the dining room where two huge wooden doors swing open to look out over the water. In the evenings we sat out on the front deck, watching...

The biggest problem with The Sandcastle Inn besides it's remote and isolated location is that their advertisements reflect what they hope it will become while the reality is that it is a work in progress. During our visit the wind and cold were so bad that eating breakfast outside was unpleasurable, and because the inside dining room was stacked to...

KathleenG, Owner at Sand Castle Inn, responded to this review

I am always open to constructive comments however, this review is totally ambiguous and not truthful. I will agree the weather was unusually cool and windy for a couple days and pretty much any where on the beach it was not all that pleasant to be outside. However, the weather got beautiful the rest of the week. These people said...

Katy and Jim have found a great place for an inn - right on the beach at Chelem. You really need a car to get around the area though Jim offered to take us wherever we needed to go. He and Katy are very friendly and not your usual hotel keepers. We hope to retire in the area and Katy...

What a surprise, this inn was certainly more than we expected. From the time we stepped off the airplane and saw the smiling faces of Jim and Katie, we felt at home. Their hospitality was overwhelming and they did absolutely everything to help us and make our stay wonderful. We were looking to buy property and Katie helped us find...

This is a very nice B&B located in Chelem Mexico. The inn keeper Katie was invaluable to us in our recent stay with her. We were looking to buy property in the Progresso area of Mexico and she helped us in all areas of our search. We could not have done it without her help. Her Inn is located in...

Our experience at the Sandcastle Inn was Fabulous. The Innkeepers, Katie and Jim, are wonderful, kind hearted, down to earth people. The view from our room was like a post card. Katie’s breakfasts were fabulous & served on a huge veranda directly on the ocean. If you want to experience real Mexico and not the touristy type of visit, I...
