Location and kid friendlyPosted Apr 11, 2015
Sandcastle has a great location. Rooms aren't top notch so don't expect something new a roomy. Good menu, friendly staff and great location on lido.

Perfect location and atmospherePosted Apr 5, 2015
Pros: The staff, the food, and the activities on the property. Bicycles, ping pong, shuffle board, paddle boards. Loved the Tiki Bar!!
Cons: Our room was too small and felt cramped, so we didn't stay in there much. Could use a makeover.
Location: St. Armand's Circle is close by
Wonderful vacation in Sarasota. Gorgeous weather and location on the beach. Staff is incredible and there are a lot of fun things to do that are included in your stay. My family loved "charging everything to the room" and having a lot of freedom on the property.

Great resort on beach for affordable price. Private beach in one of the nicest stretch of beaches in the USA. White sand, best sunsets ever witnessed.

Just change the price of the roomPosted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: Beach location.
Cons: Rooms and facilities are old and tired. Needs a major renovation.
Hotel is now charging a "resort fee" of $25/day. It is supposed to cover things like coffee in the room, towels for the beach, lounge chairs, wi-fi service, etc. Don't they know that all hotels offer these amenities?? This hotel does not offer anything in terms of service that I would consider a resort. If it weren't for the beach location, there would be no reason to stay here. So quit adding the up charge and just adjust the room rate.

Great location and convenient to attractions. Well kept for an older resort. Sometimes older is better than the new fancy highrises.

Cozy and comfortablePosted Mar 25, 2015
We arrived a little early but the hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. We went out to the beautiful beach where we were well taken care of by friendly staff. The room was neat and clean, though a little smaller than I am use to. Overall, it as an enjoyable to experience. We wish we could have stayed longer.
