Here is what our guests had to say about their stay.

Great for kids!


After much research, I finally decided to stay at "Castles in the Sand". I'm so happy I did. It's not just a hotel, it's a resort! It's great for kids (mine are 8 & 10) and adults as well. The entertainment for the children is excellent, and I must say the hotel staff is very friendly. I love that everyone is kind and approachable. My stay was amazing. Thank you.

Our room was spotless!


Was there last week, first time staying here. Our room was spotless! Very nice size room, love the size of the refrigerator and was so happy to have a small freezer part. The office staff was so nice and received a text an hour after getting there early that our room was ready! Will definitely stay again.

Will definitely stay here again


The location is close to restaurants, and the amusement park you would have to drive to the boardwalk unless you were feeling energetic, the staff was extraordinarily helpful and had a great sense of humor. We stayed in a 3-bedroom cottage. the rooms were spacious, beds comfortable the only downside, was only one TV which was in the living room ( but that's a personal preference). The food and drinks at Coconuts Bar and Grill were delicious. We really enjoyed the fries with queso sauce. I will definitely stay there again.

Couldn’t have picked a better hotel


This was our first time to Ocean City beach and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. The room was clean and the view was breathtaking. Every staff member I met was cheerful and ready to help with anything I needed. The hotel is in a convenient location and parking is a plus. Having Coconuts next door was a plus and the music set off the week. We had a fantastic getaway and will definitely be back. Thanks to all staff for a great job.

Definitely returning next year!


Absolutely loved our stay! We had a beachfront room with a balcony. It's like staying at a resort. There's a restaurant/bar, Coconuts, that will even serve you while you're on the beach (food and alcoholic beverages)! Great place to stay with the family right on the beach. Short 2-mile drive to the boardwalk. Also 3 blocks down is Jolly Roger's Amusement with a water park and go-karts. Definitely returning next year!!!
