My husband and I returned from a trip to Merida Mexico where we were attending a wedding. We decided to spend a few days on the beach before heading to Merida. It was very difficult to find info on the Sand Castle that was current. We took a leap of faith and were not disappointed. Katie was very responsive to our emails and Jim did a good job of hosting us for the 3 days. It was very very relaxing. We had a king room on the second floor with a balcony facing the ocean, right above the beach. The room was very very clean and had everything we needed. Katie was called out of the country and jim said he didn't want to kill us by cooking us breakfast so he took us to breakfast every morning- we went to 3 different places, all unique and tasty. La Playa (owner Carlos) up the road is a good place to catch something to eat as well for lunch or dinner. Our only issue which had nothing to do with the Sand Castle was that the car rental agency (Europcar) had no cars when we showed up for our rental - would not recommend them because since it was a busy time no other agencies had cars either. luckily we had friends who took us there. We would have explored Chelem (a sleepy little town) more if we had a car.
We would return to the Sand Castle!
