Seas the Day

Not just time away- it’s the time of your life
Close to Home – Far from Ordinary

We’re just a short flight from Miami, but miles away from ordinary

Stay

Lose yourself in the golden sun and azure waters of our gay-friendly Caribbean beachfront resort. Nestled among the palms along a pristine stretch of sugar-white sandy beaches, you’ll see why our boutique hotel is the best-kept secret in St. Croix.

Dine

Let our seasonal fare, artisanal cocktails and gentle ocean breeze carry you away. Our open air seaside terrace restaurant offers an experience like no other.

Explore

For those with an adventurous spirit, St. Croix will certainly not disappoint. Dive the depths of our crystal-clear waters with guided scuba and snorkeling trips, paddle kayaks along the sandy shores, hike the beautiful wilderness of the island’s rainforest…or, just watch the world go by.

    This sounds completely inflammatory... I can assure that it isn’t. This vacation for me was completely transformative and the staff here at Sand Castle played a huge part in this. They treat you as if you were family and they’re informative. The rooms were great and clean. We met both of the owners and they’re truly wonderful and gracious hosts. Their beach was great and calming with plenty of umbrellas and chairs. They even have snorkeling gear, although limited. This trip changed my life, literally and when it came time to leave, there was a tear in my eye. In large part due to these great folks. I can’t recommend it enough. -

    Paradise Found....An unexpected New Love!
    I’ve thought about everything I would write, all the names I would mention of the wonderful people I met, and all the wonderful ‘Aha!’ moments I experienced, but...You simply must go to St. Croix, stay at Sand Castle and let life beautifully evolve throughout your stay!

    What a find! I can’t even remember how we came across this place but I’m so glad we did. A friend and I spent five nights in the Dolphin Villa and it was so hard to leave. Between the location (on the best beach in Frederiksted, seriously we went to all the beaches on the island), to the restaurant on site (the rice bowl is life changing), to the staff (shout out to Jimmy!), to the owners, this is a dream resort. It’s super down to earth, there’s an eclectic group of people staying here, well run, clean and friendly. Don’t bother staying anywhere else on the island (and definitely don’t stay on the east side, it’s way more touristy!) We’re already planning our next trip down! -

    My partner and I had the BEST experience staying here. The staff, especially Tammy, are the best. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We can't wait to come back and stay the next time we are in SLO. I highly recommend this hotel!! -

    There are very few words to describe this place. If you are looking for a true relaxing, friendly, stress free place, this is it and there is no other I have been able to find thus far. Everyone, even guests are friendly. The food is amazing, but the view and the feel of true peace is what is their greatest asset. Everyone is welcome. If you come to st croix and do not stay here, you will miss the whole point of island paradise. -

    Great owners! There every day ! Very clean, great rooms, great beach! Food great. My only complaint no breakfast. Continental breakfast only includes dinner rolls! Bring breakfast food ! -

    Sand Castle was an amazing place. Ted and Chris were fantastic hosts, giving both a high quality experience and the personal attention one should expect from a small business operation. Nothing was found wanting about our stay and all six members of my family fit comfortably in the Dolphin Villa, as they provided 2 extra beds to accommodate our number. The Oceanside restaurant, The Beach Side Cafe, had delicious specials and standard fare to satisfy any eater, along with a good selection of both local and imported beers, wine and liquors. All in all, this was one of my favorite beach resort experiences of all time and I will definitely be returning. -

    Beautiful location beach is just out side your door. Owners are wonderful all the employees were kind. My only suggestion would be to have a few hooks in the shower to hang bathing suits on. -

All room prices shown have the 10% Resort Fee included. This may be mistaken as a price increase, but in reality, there is no additional cost.

*Additional Charges: 12.5% VI Hotel Tax Extra person charge: $20 per person per night. All Rates Above Are Single or Double Occupancy.

Cancellation Policy: A 50% deposit is required with reservation. Cancellations within 30 days of check-in are subject to a 15% fee. No fee will be assessed if canceled prior to 30 days of check-in. Reservations determined to be no call / no shows will be charged in full.

**Adult Only rule waived if entire hotel is rented for an event. Pool restriction still applies.
