We did not stay at the hotel but the beach and facilities are great for cruise ship guests. We got a round trip shuttle from the cruise ship pier for $6 per person. At Sand Castle we paid $10 per person which got us a beach chair, umbrella, drink and access to the hotel facilities including the pool and restrooms....

Stayed with my S/O for a 30th birthday present trip in March 2017. Sand Castles is a charming and welcoming spot on the West Side of St. Croix, so, the quiet side of the quiet island. Perfect for truly relaxing get aways. Nothing is that far apart with a car, so Christiansted and a bit more nightlife is only 30...

If you want a great view and a great meal this is the place to go. Right on the beach and a nice intimate setting...not too big and not too small. If you call ahead for reservations you have a great chance of getting a table next to the ocean for the best view in the house.

I absolutely love this place! It's also very close to where the cruise ships come in, so even in the off season you can always find a few open restaurants and gift shops in the nearby town of Fredericksted across from the pier. Wi-Fi worked great even by the pool. The sunsets are breathtaking! Rooms were clean and quiet and...

I honestly didn't want to leave! Dolphin Villa is a 2 bdrm house, with full kitchen, living room, dining area, 2 baths and a beautiful terrace...

We seldom stay at the same place twice no matter how good a place was the first time. But we liked Sand Castle enough to come back to Saint Croix and to stay at Sand Castle place a second time. We've checked out a lot of the other hotels, but I don't think we would ever stay at any of...

My wife and I spent a week at Sand Castle on the Beach recently and had a fantastic stay. We had never been to St. Croix but this was really a great find. Probably very important to most visitors to St. Croix, Sand Castle is situated on a really nice beach a short walk from Frederiksted. The beach is west-facing...

If your goal is to relax on a beautiful beach and have a comfortable and low key vacation, then this is the spot. The rooms are huge and are like small apartments. We had a kitchen and living room and balcony. Having coffee overlooking the garden was so relaxing. The hotel has beach gear, kayaks, and provides towels. Everyone is...

Friendly staff, good service, excellent meal. New owner introduced himself and made us feel welcome. Best place we found for a great meal, prices were reasonable. We drove from Christenstad and it was well worth the trip. Entrance, lobby, and restaurant classy. Would not mind booking there for return visit.
