Good location, needs updates badly

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Towels were terrible. Breakfast. Room amenities. Reception.
Location: Dive off the Frederiksted pier. Nothing else in the area.
Great location right on the beach with easy access to the beach. Hotel room needed a lot of work - TV was placed in the upper section of the closet so only half the screen could be seen, even when lying flat on bed. Room was small. Bathroom was tiny with very little water so a shower was very tedious. Breakfast was pathetic - even for a continental. Had to ask for tea, water wasn't even warm. Hard, dry English muffins with cream cheese and sad looking pastries. Best part is the location on beach and restaurant facing the ocean.

Very relaxing atmosphere

The staff are very friendly and actually knew my name and were happy to chat. This is probably the first time I relaxed in a long time

An Unexpected Surprise

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: Excellent location on a clear beautiful beach. We were in a one bedroom suite that had a full apartment sized kitchen that was very well stocked.
Unfortunate circumstances necessitated an additional night on St Croix but after being booked in to the Sand Castle most worries were forgotten! All of the people we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and help relieve the travel frustrations. Food and drinks at the Beachside Cafe were all excellent. If we ever return to St Croix we will definitely spend part of our week at this property.

Quiet and laid-back setting.

Informal location with rooms overlooking a white sand beach, great for sun bathing, swimming and snorkling. Staff is friendly and will respond quickly to any request. Great location for those having a rental car and wanting to explore the island on their own. Best vacation I've had in years.

Lovely and Welcoming

Posted Apr 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is a small, quite hotel on a fantastic stretch of beach. The rooms are scrupulously clean and comfortable. The staff and owners are amazing and make you feel like you're at home. The food at the restaurant is delicious, but therein lies my only complaint. The location is residential and the restaurant is closed Tuesday and Wednesday. There are not a lot of options nearby to obtain food if you don't have a car. We were able to walk to a nearby restaurant for an early dinner, but we were warned against walking back on the very dark road that has no sidewalks. Fortunately, the owner of the other restaurant gave us a ride back. If you're not prepared with your own food or a rental car for the days the restaurant is closed it can be a bit inconvenient.

Nice Hotel ON the Beach

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: On the Beach. Great Restaurant.
Cons: hot water for showers
Location: On the Beach. The town of Fredriksted has lots of great little places to try the local fare. the Rainforest is nearby so visit the Domino Club
Nice Quaint privately owned spot on the beach. The staff are phenomenal!! Sparkle greeted us our first night and made us feel right at home. Irma, Nisha and Kelly were always a pleasure and all so helpful at the front desk. The restaurant is awesome! Love Chef John and his staff !! we took in the sunset every night sitting by the pool over looking the beach area. Excellent snorkeling, swimming beach. Even locals love to come hang out here! We met so many wonderful people. It was pretty quiet thru the week until Sat, Sun when there was a cruise ship in town. We rented a car and got out and about to other beaches and attractions. Would definately recommend and can't wait to go back!

Great value for the price.

Posted Jan 17, 2014
Pros: Price was perfect. Hotel is right on the beach
Cons: The rooms could be updated... but for the price it was perfect
Location: Pretty laid back part of town but away from the strand in Fsted.
Really laid back place to stay. Hotel staff is friendly, rooms are nice (mind you they are not 5 star, but you're not paying for 5 star either) Would recommend.

Great Hotel Staff, No Hot Water 9 days out of 12

Posted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: the view, nice beach, very nice front desk ladies
Cons: no hot water
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, but the hotel itself was not that good. The balcony in the room looks more like a cage, the TV was on the top shelf in the closet, so you could see only half of the screen. But it was not a big deal. THE BIG DEAL: NO HOT WATER in the shower. I went to the frontdesk to find out what was going on, but the lady told me they have solar panels and there was no sun for the last couple of days and in order to get some hot water we need to leave the water running for like 20 minutes - Did Not Help. Even though it was 90F outside everyday and sunny we still had no hot water, not even warm. 9 days out of 12 we did not have hot water and had to take a cold shower. What a Relief to get back home and have hot water 24/7. Other than that everything was good.
