Features beautiful beach with great views.

You will enjoy relaxing on Sandcastle Resort's 600-foot stretch of white sand beach. Take in a fantastic sunset and enjoy swimming in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, or hang out and sunbathe during the day on one of the beach chairs. Get up early and go shell hunting - the beach is literally steps away from your hotel room. The beautiful view is the number one reason people choose to stay at this hotel.
