Through a vrbo listing I discovered an astoundingly affordable 1BR+/1BA condo at Silver Sands at a special promotional rate of $99/night. The vrbo owner referred me to Resort Quest which manages the property. It was such a fine fit for my husband and me that we would have gladly stayed five weeks rather than just the five nights we booked.... More

My husband and I rented suite 246 for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The unit was just as described -- very low-key, clean, private and restful. With this unit, you are steps away from the pool and a pristine beach with gorgeous white sand. Linens and kitchen amenities were ample, and access to coin laundry facilities made it... More

Honestly, when we arrived at the motel we were disapointed with the looks of the exterior. It had a gravel parking lot and a very small office. When we were assigned a room that was conected to the office we were ready to leave and find another place. We then went into the office to voice our displeasure and the... More

I booked the Silver Sands on a hunch and a chat with the manager Stacy. I needed to find a place for a long weekend to which I could take my 85 year old mother who becomes disoriented easily and has limited mobility. Silver Sands was clean, neat, quiet, and welcoming. The beach is easily accessible and the pool area... More

The weather was great after the break from summer temperatures and the beach on Longboat is a real treat. Our room at Silver Sands was much more spacious than a hotel room with a nice living room and a complete kitchen with the full complement of dishes and kitchen utensils. Our unit was very well maintained and we had daily... More

We just got back today, we were originally booked to stay at the Outrigger resort but our condo was doublebooked. Luckily, Resortquest was able to put us up at the Silver Sands just down the street. As it turned out this was a much nicer property, the condo was spacious and clean, the grounds very well maintained, I was very... More

My husband and I spent our 1st anniversary at this beautiful property. We had a great weekend. The weather was perfect. The room was excellent with a screened balcony looking over the pool to the beach. The sunsets were spectacular. The staff were friendly and helpful, and really looked after us. We will be back.

My family and I have stayed at the Silver Sands resort for the past 2 years. As recent as April 18th, 2006. During our first stay we were very unhappy with Housekeeping. They simply did not show up for a day or two. The lighting and security were an issue as well. Things that were promised did not materialize I... More
