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.

Visitors hoping to stay active should find exactly what they're looking for at this all-inclusive hotel, which offers a diverse selection of outdoor opportunities. Snorkeling is one option, though if that doesn't interest you, be assured that nearly visitors will find an activity to their taste at this coastal location.

Positioned in White Bay, close to Great Harbour, Sandcastle Hotel, an all-inclusive property, is a great choice for tourists wanting to stay in this neighborhood or nearby. If you're curious, the center of Road Town is to the east.


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 rooms, which explains why we classify it as a very small property. Travelers who shy away from large crowds will especially enjoy the personal touch at this property.

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.
