Small hotel, privately owned, so great service is a standard! Rooms have a maritime style and are equipped with all the necessities. Private beach, with free beds, towels, just accross the road, and every morning free breakfast, with fruits and juices etc. Location is splendid for a relaxed stay, gated pool area, with showers, so on the day of leave...

My husband and I stayed here for seven nights recently. The room was very clean and the staff was excellent. Very polite and professional. The shower was very large but the bathroom was extremely tiny and made it almost impossible to get dressed in it. The location was wonderful. Walking distance to some shops and restaurants. The private beach was... More

Clean, comfortable, nice rooms! Footsteps from their own private beach with free beach chairs and umbrellas! Jet ski and paddle board rentals through coastal water right there. My recommendation: go for it on the Jet skis! Loved it here and will definitely be back!

Silver Sands has obviously had a recent renovation. New paint everywhere, pool looks great, parking lot and landscaping clean and manicured. What previous folks have said about wi if is true true true! It barely works. In general this spot seems to have a poor tower signal, but theirs doesn't offer any boost so don't stay here if you need... More

It is an updated outdoor corridor hotel. It is in great shape. Staff was very friendly. Wifi is a bit squirrelly but we were told they were having issues with it. Continental breakfast was good (hard boiled eggs, bagels, muffins, danishes, juice...). My only complaint was there was always sand all over the tiled floor in the room. I understand... More

Great location right across the street from a great gulf beach. Chairs, umbrellas, and towels provided, and courteous employees on the beach set you up where you want to cop a squat. Jetski's, Hobicats, and paddleboards for rent. All that the area has to offer is close by, and you can just catch the free tram right out front if... More

Hotel was average... small frig, small microwave, couch and king size bed with nice linens. Elevator to the 2nd and 3rd floor, but small\narrow door. Private beach is across the street. Private beach.. so certain beverages are permitted if you catch my drift. Only if you responsible with yourself of course. They have rentals like jet skis and paddleboards. The... More

stayed for a long weekend. Nice location, across the street from beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach for guests to use.. a VERY nice service! Beach towels were also provided. Room was clean, air conditioning worked well. Grab and go breakfast was nice touch (limited variety.. frozen pastries, bread or bagels for toasting, fruit, juice, coffee) but definitely... More
