Sandcastle Hotel

Sandcastle Hotel is a small, intimate, laid-back resort. The property has two beachfront cottages, two garden cottages, and two air-conditioned rooms along with a restaurant and a world-famous beach bar. With barely any other souls around (aside from sailors, checking out the bar) and one of the most beautiful beaches and landscapes in the world, this is a great place to escape from everything and simply enjoy nature, a drink, and relaxation.

Active guests will have a blast at this all-inclusive hotel, as they will encounter an excellent range of outdoor options. Snorkeling might be a good option, though if you're in the mood for something else, know that most everyone should find something to their taste at this beach-side location.

Located in White Bay, near Great Harbour, Sandcastle Hotel, an all-inclusive property, offers a warm welcome to visitors interested in staying in this neighborhood. It's west of the center of Road Town.


Sandcastle Hotel has a few unique lodging options. There are two pairs of cottages to choose from depending on preference. One pair are two room cottages located right on the beach with a king bed, private bathroom, daybed, ceiling fans, enclosed outdoor showers, and hot water from a rooftop tank heated by the sun.

The other pair of cottages are surrounded by lush vegetation in the gardens just off the beach. These cottages offer the same amenities as their beachfront siblings.

Additionally, two studio rooms were added in 1998. These rooms have air-conditioning and inside showers for guests who don't want to “rough it” quite as much. The two units have a connecting door, making it possible to join the two rooms to create a larger unit.

Sandcastle has just 6 units. Accordingly, it's a good choice for guests who enjoy a less commercialized atmosphere. In terms of overall merit, we have rated this hotel a rating of 3 stars.

Sandcastle Hotel's claim to fame is the creation of the Original Painkiller, a smooth cocktail of run, cream of coconut, pineapple, orange juice, and freshly grated Grenadian nutmeg. The Soggy Dollar Bar, from its signature drink to the necessity to swim to it to the unrivaled vistas, is a legend in its own right and unlike any other bar.

Where sustenance is concerned, Sandcastle Hotel has an open-air beachfront restaurant that serves up a home-style breakfast, local lunch, and gourment dinner everyday. Breakfast and five dinners are included with Sandcastle Hotel's special seven-night MAP package.
