We book this hotel every year when we plan our vacation. Why? Because out of the 100 or so hotels in Ocean City, Md, we have yet to need a reason to look elsewhere for an exceptional experience. Please allow me to expound...
I booked this hotel based on room rate, location and ratings. The staff is friendly, especially the wait staff at breakfast. There are some idiosyncracies, however:
- Breakfast is advertised to start at 7:00 a.m. They really mean 7:15.
- there is no safe in...More
Stayed in a one bedroom oceanfront suite with balcony which was clean, spacious, well equipped and the view from balcony was amazing. The staff from the front desk, restaurant, and housekeeping were all excellent and attentive. Our kids loved the daily activities with "Sunshine and...More
Although the room could use some updating, it was very clean. It didn't matter anyway because we had an ocean view room with a balcony and spent most of our time out there and on the beach and boardwalk. Loved that there was a bar...More
I enjoyed my stay at castle of the sand. The hotel it self is a bit out dated, but it was still very comfortable. Yes, I would stay here again it is close to all the good locations. The bar on site is a nice...More

Beverage service at the pool from Coconuts. They also do beverage and food service from specific times at the beach. I have heard that some people have trouble getting service at the pool (it rained majority of the time I was there so I cant say myself). You can easily grab a drink and bring it to the pool. They security will likely just ask if you are staying at the hotel before they let you leave the bar area. All in all I highly recommend this hotel and the bar. One of my favorite spots. Keep in mind the pool is only for hotel guests.
