We stayed at the Sandcastle on our latest trip to Port Aransas. The price was reasonable, sort of, but there was some very loud construction on our side of the facility. The pool and hot tub were great, and the condo was very good. It had a good view of the beach and the gulf and the bed was comfy....

Thank you for the review and rating of the Sandcastle. We are very sorry to hear that your recent stay with us was anything less than pleasant.

Family trip for a beach wedding. The condo was clean and the beach view was fair. The bed was horrible in Condo 506. We were up most of the night and didn't sleep much, even though we went to bed by 9. Once we got up, out backs and hips were hurting horribly. It took the management until 2:30 in...

The location was wonderful. Easy walk/access to the beach and pool facilities. The condo and rest of facility was terrible. Our condo had cheap furniture that was falling apart and had not been updated since maybe the 80's. The floor was dirty. When you turned on the hot water faucets in the kitchen, bath or shower it smelled so badly...

This use to be the best place in the beach. The new management seems to have failed to keep its high standards. They allow people to play music very loud at the pool area. They allow young children in the hot tub although the rules state otherwise. People yell from one balcony to another. It is too loud in your...

We stay in unit 325 for 3 nights in August. Nice view of the pool and beach. One comment--the patio furniture needs major cleaning or replacing in this unit. Pool was nice. Monitoring of the pool area is needed for guests who cannot follow the rules; glass bottles in the pool area. Lots of folks brought ice chests down and...

We have been coming to Port Aransas since I was a teenager (now in my late 40's). We've stayed at many of the condos on the island. Time and time again, we end up coming back to Sandcastle!
