Excellent4.0 / 5
Beautiful location on the beach, with loungers & umbrellas. Nice pools for swimming. Great buffet breakfast. Restaurant staff was friendly, beach staff was accommodating & efficient, some front desk staff were very helpful. Hotel is a bit dated ( especially from the outside) but the lobby and inside areas were very nice and the room was clean & comfortable

Nice And clean hotel
I recommend this hotel, the only thing is the beach is not like public Lido Beach or Siesta Beach, is smaller and regular sand

Great beach stay
Original motel overbooked us so the hotels.com agent moved us to Sandcastle Resort. It was actually a much better location and atmosphere than we had planned for. It was a rather large motel and we had a view of the larger of two nice and maintained swimming pools. It was very clean. The front desk staff was wonderful. The only thing that could have improved was the method on getting towels/getting ticket back from attendant. We only used 2 towels and visited pool/ocean for a few hours and both getting towels and receiving our ticket back when we returned was a dilemma with the girl attendant flirting with other teenage employees on the far side of the pool or riding the cart around on sand for 10 or more minutes. We went inside to the desk and they used the radio to call her and she came up a few minutes later and was in a huffy mood, not seeing us standing there, threw her arms up where many other guests could see. It wasn't closing time and we had waited over 20 minutes to track someone down. I am not sure how to remedy this, maybe rotate who does outside responsibilities. I work with some young people and am in my 30s so it isn't like I am 80 expecting valet service or special treatment.
