We had a great time despite the rain. The room was nice and clean. The pool was nice. We couldn't really enjoy the ocean too much on account of the massive waves due to the rain but it was still very beautiful.

Silver surf lived up to my expectations. The complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas, beach towels and especially the breakfast are great amenities. The room was very clean and welcoming; I did not want to leave. My only suggestion would be to have someone monitoring the beach umbrellas or to set up more umbrellas as sometimes guests use more than one... More

Great location and the beach was awesome. Loved this place and will go back many times over. The resort is really a hotel but was clean, conveniently located and staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the quiet private beach and always had lounge chairs and umbrellas. Trolley stops in front of resort.

This looks like a typical beach hotel, but everyone when out of their way to make it a special stay. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is a fun hotel. They have chairs umbrellas on the beach and someone to set them up for you. You can rent personal watercraft, sailboats, kayaks and our favorite on this trip,... More

This hotel is not fancy, but it's clean and quaint with a seaside decor in the rooms. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time. Private beach across the street is only about a minute walk. They provide free beach chairs, beach umbrellas and towels. Kitchen unit had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. Bed was comfortable. Tina... More

I would go back simply for location and Pam was awesome. I have stayed alot at this resort. I do think you should consider customers that don't have kids on the far end of the resort- lots of slamming of doors,yelling etc... Late at night.

From the moment we checked into silver surf, I knew I was going to be home away from home. Everything there was great! The front office staff were top notch! I was pleasantly surprised that they had grills on the property! It was very nice to just walk across to the beach and have a chair and umbrella waiting there... More
