My partner and I enjoyed our stay immensely. Our 2nd trip to the island we live was only made better by the accommodating and friendly staff at Sand Castle on the Beach. They truly exceeded out expectations in every way. Not to mention the hotel is located on the best beach in St Croix. Win win! Enjoy!!!!! Chris & Dan

Nice clean hotel right on beach. Restaurant next door with bar very nice and convenient. We had a room on the street side which could be somewhat noisy with traffic and loud music. Would probably ask for room closer to beach next time. Staff was nice and accomodating.
