5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I like that we could just walk across to the beach. It was beautiful and not crowded. We would stay again. Excellent maid service. They let us borrow sand toys for the kids to use at the beach. Lots to see and do on the island

We recently stayed at Silver Surf for a family vacation. Have never stayed on AMI before and "lucked" in to this resort.Location is great, you can walk to many different restaurants and of course have the beautiful beach right across the road. Rooms and maid service were so clean and helpful staff. Nice to have chairs and umbrellas supplied at the beach.Grab and go breakfast was good for our young grandsons.Enjoyed our stay!

Great beach access, looks like it was built in the 70s but updated room was clean, quiet at night, lots of traffic on road in front. Resort is located within walking distance to restaurants,bars etc. No designated parking per rooms.Have to find a spot to park. Overall ok,would consider staying again.

Even though the weather didn't cooperate the three days we were there, we still had a wonderful vacation and the Silver Surf was such a great place to start and end our day, and also in wonderful close proximity to the beach - right across the road! The beach there is so beautiful. Every morning we walked a stretch of beach and collected shells while my son ran around at the edge of the water. Beautiful calm, turquoise water and vast stretch of beach.

The hotel room was quaint and clean. Housekeeping kept it nice and tidy every day and the staff was friendly and helpful. Simple breakfast was perfect for starting the day. I was happy there was a laundry room on site to do a load while we were there. We had a great stay and I will definitely come back to this place.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights last week for out last part of honeymoon. It was very easy to find, right on the main road that runs the length of the island. I requested when we booked a room with a sea view and mentioned it was our honeymoon. They kindly gave us a sea view room (although it was further back from the sea than i expected) and decorated our room with rose petals and love swans!

The location is perfect, just a walk over the road onto the resorts own private beach which was unexpectedly quiet even for what locals claimed was one of the busiest weeks of the year. You are also within walking distance of some of the islands best restaurants.

The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We liked the fact there was plenty of TV channels to choose from which kind of made up for the poor wifi at the resort.

The bathrooms could do with a little attention as there was paint flaking off the architrave and the bath itself looked a little grubby, maybe because it was old?

The staff were excellent, very helpful, accommodating and friendly.

Daily maid service is nice. They offered beach toys for our little one. Kitchen was stocked but knives were dull and pans were scratched up. Walls were dirty. Breakfast was limited and the same every day. Pool was nice and warm- confirmed the 86 degree temp. Location was key. Trolley pick up right in front of hotel but sometimes the trolley is full and can't pick up. Beach was great- shells were amazing- large variety!
