We had a one bedroom unit on the second level. We had a great view of the beach/Gulf of Mexico and the pool area. The unit was very clean and well equipped. We had maid service daily with fresh linens as needed. All was within steps of the beach and heated pool. Barbeques were available if you did not want... More

Located by the beach, this resort offers appartments to spend several Days, the best time probably being October, avoiding the high season and still with good weather. It is also close to Anna María Island, which offers still more beaches and nice neighbourhoods to visit

I suppose it is a resort because it has a pool, putting green and access to the beach, but I am not surprised they had vacancies over the holiday period. A spacious two rooms, but very small bathroom. Clean (apart from a dubious brown blanket), but maintenance not good enough. Both TVs had to be fixed, and the lights never... More

We were disappointed to hear of this guests' recent experience at Silver Sands Gulf Beach Resort. Our records indicate this guest did report a problem with the TV the day after arriving; at which time a member of our Maintenance Team was dispersed for resolution. Our reports show the remotes for the various TV's within the unit had been mistakenly... More

Our accommodations were more than expected. Daily maid service was available including packets of coffee. Fresh towels were delivered to our door for both bath and beach. The mini-golf was a nice touch. Everything was well maintained and functioned properly. It more than met our expectations. We stayed upstairs so we could have a view of the ocean but it... More

The room was one of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in. It had everything you would need to enjoy your stay. The property is tropical and beautiful.... More

We've stayed at a few places on Longboat Key for some alone time, weekend getaways. Unit 246 at the Silver Sands has been our favorite so far. Very comfortable condo, home away from home. Modern appliances and TVs, and the central A/C was far better than a wall unit. Literally steps from the Gulf.

My family of 3 stayed at the Silver Sands Labor Day weekend. While other beaches nearby were packed with people, we enjoyed a great secluded and private beach. The water and sand were just perfect. The pool was very well maintained. We had beach towels, umbrellas and lounge chairs. The room was very clean with all cooking appliances in perfect... More

Front desk didnt seem all that concerned. Not cool. Fridge had rust on the bottom outside. A/C noisy wall unit and... More
