We stayed at the beach castle resort unit 3. It was beautifully decorated and very lovely. It was on the ground floor which was great. We loved that we could walk right out to the beach. We would definitely go back! It's was great that there were chairs already on the beach for us and umbrellas also.

I was looking for a close getaway vacation and found out about beach castle resort. Even though the units are older, they are very well equipped, clean, and taken care off. The customer service is outstanding... I'll go back a little longer the next time.

Poor communication from the RVA property manager! We were never informed that landscapers would be trimming brush along the property line and would take FOUR days! Their huge cherry picker truck and cut branches literally blocked the entire drive way with no access to our room. Even walking along the back of the property we had to step over rakes...

So disappointed in this resorts customer service!!! A group of 11 beach-getaway needing moms are here for the weekend. The reservations department and the Home owners association do not communicate well. There is a very fixable parking issue during an off season time that this resort is not upholding their word on after we are here instead of being hospitable!...

We were disappointed to hear of this guests' recent experience at our Beach Castle Resort on Longboat Key. RVA and it's affiliated properties have always advertised a limit on the number of parking spaces available per rental unit. Our records indicate that since this group reserved two separate units, they were given four parking passes; a generous amount for the...

We stayed in unit 5 which is a two bedroom oceanside with a screened in patio with a peak of the ocean. The building is right on the ocean. Just walk through a short path through mangroves and you are on the beach. Plenty of beach chairs. The unit is spacious, nicely decorated and appointed. It was very clean. No...

Thank you to this guest for their recent feedback of Beach Castle Resort. Our records do indicate the guest contacted a member of our Management Team in regards to the timing of the grounds provider maintaining the property. We agreed that this was completely unacceptable, offered an appropriate apology to the guest, and have since spoken with the company that...
