Another great visit


My husband and I have visited numerous times, and always greatly enjoy Castle in the Sand. We stay in the South Castle, and love the layout of the lovely suites. The staff is always friendly, and go above and beyond to make our stay lovely. Coconuts always has delightful entertainment and delicious food. We will continue to come back for years to come.



The room was big and very clean. We had a little kitchenette. We could see the ocean from our balcony. They had music every night outside. we enjoyed it very much. The beds were very comfy. The pool was big and very clean, and of course the ocean was beautiful. i recommend this hotel highly.

The place is amazing and the service was even better!


The daytime manager Adam was wonderful! We had a room in the Sovereign Sea on the third floor! It was amazing! Beautiful huge deck with an ocean and pool view! The place was 2 bed and 2 bath with a beautiful kitchen and HUGE living room! It was so clean and decorated adorable! It had too many closets to count and it even had your own washer and dryer and drying rack! It is right on the beach also! They have great food and drink and food service right on the beach! The pool is huge and has a diving board! I will never stay anywhere else after staying here!

Best Hotel in Ocean City


I visit the Castle in the Sand 3 times a year. Have been doing this for the last 5 years. Each visit is wonderful from check-in to check out. The entire staff is wonderful and can't do enough for you. I would never again stay anywhere else but the Castle.

This is the first time I have stayed at this hotel and feel the need to share my wonderful experience. In short, this facility "has it all". I was very impressed to say the least. The rooms are spotless, the staff is exceptionally helpful, the restaurant food is wonderful. Prices are affordable, there is plenty of onsite parking, the hotel is very family friendly. The very clean beach is right next to the hotel, and, they have a huge pool. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in OCMD.
