The 100 Best Resorts in the Caribbean by Kay Showker
"Feel like dropping out? Want to hide for a few days? Try Sandcastle… pack light. You won't need much, just bathing suits and shorts. This is barefoot living at its best. Obviously, Sandcastle is not for everyone, but for some it's as near paradise as they need to be."

"…a tiny hotel called Sandcastle, with just four cottages and a restaurant, all of excellent standard… "Hideaway Hotel" is a much abused phrase but with the Sandcastle, the description, for once, fits exactly."

"A Virgin Island as Virgin as When Columbus Happened Upon It. Here is a modern-day Robinson Crusoe's alternative to the real world. Roll up your trousers and wade ashore to this tiny island and one of the area's most stunning beaches. Wear to dinner what you wore to breakfast, and spend time in between moving from one hammock to another with Painkillers in hand. Deprived are the yachties who row in just for the day, although the highlight of their sailing vacation is usually a candlelit four-course dinner at the Soggy Dollar, the hotel's and island's focal point that is well-known and deservedly beloved in yachting circles."
