The Silver Surf offers a great location, clean and well kept accommodations at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and it always feels like you are coming back to visit old friends. I always wish the stay could be longer!

We checked in on a Saturday, April 11, 2015, in the afternoon and everything went smoothly. Pam, at the front desk, was very friendly, informative, and helpful. The location is directly across the road from a private beach, that offers lounge chairs, umbrellas(free of charge) and massages (for a fee).
Due to extreme exhaustion we only left the room to pick up some pizza for dinner. The room was tastefully decorated and clean. It was comfortable for recuperating. Upon check out on Sunday morning we had the most unexpected experience. Pam, upon hearing we hadn't had the opportunity to cross the road and enjoy their private beach, encouraged us to grab some breakfast, come back (with parking pass) and park in their lot and enjoy their private beach before our drive home. She specifically indicated she would rather our family be able to do this as opposed to the crowded public beach. We were able to enjoy 2-3 hours of a spectacular day. Our warmest thanks to Pam.
This was our second stay at the resort this year and we will be back as often as possible. Pam went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. Our family travels a lot for sporting tournaments with our kids and this by far is the best staff we have encountered in a very long time.

Our stay was very nice and was able to go right to the beach. Made it easy to be able to have the beach chairs and the umbrella on the beach. Sunset was nice to watch from the balcony. Rooms were clean.

I would stay here again. Everyone was so nice and the rooms were very clean.
The beach was right across the street with beach chairs and umbrella's. The beach was beautiful and the water was wonderful. Sunsets were amazing!!

Our room faced the gulf, half of the group was in the adjoining room which was perfect. The rooms were plenty big enough. Our view was great and the island was amazing.
From the first call I made, just to get info about the resort, was attended to by very kind, helpful, courteous staff members! Well run resort!

Silver Surf has always been our favorite place to stay ever since I was a kid and we like that we have boat parking. Very clean and everyone is always friendly. We will for sure be back. But do recommend down stairs with the kitchen. **********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************Thanks The Lowery's

Great place to stay. On the beach and the staff put out chairs and umbrellas everyday. Close to everything. Rode the trolley everywhere on the island. Definitely we will be going back. Ate the provided breakfast outside every morning.
