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.

Travelers hoping to keep active will have a blast at this all-inclusive destination, as they will enjoy access to an excellent variety of outdoor possibilities. Snorkeling is one option, though if that doesn't interest you, be assured that just about everyone should find an activity to their liking at this beachfront location.

Located on the western part of White Bay, close to Great Harbour, Sandcastle Hotel, an all-inclusive complex, offers a warm welcome to vacationers interested in staying in this neighborhood or nearby. It is 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 a total of just 6 units. Hence, it appeals to guests who prefer a relatively intimate setting. In terms of quality, we've awarded this hotel a 3 star rating.

Activities and Amenities

Activities around the hotel include snorkeling around the reef, enjoying the white-sand beach, hiking the hills and volcano, lounging in a hammock, or visiting Great Harbour or Little Harbour, the two largest settlements with a few hundred residents between them and a selection of restaurants, boutiques, churches, and other buildings. The climate in White Bay is idyllic, typically with refreshing tradewinds, temperatures between 75-90 degrees Fahrenheit, and extremely brief showers when rain does occur.

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.
