“Always a pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We have stayed at Silver Surf before and after its remodel. Although we are in one of the smaller rooms, it was refurbished and neatly arranged. The staff
has always been pleasant and helpful, and its location just across the street from the gulf is wonderful.
The only things that I would improve there is the internet, which is slow in the mornings especially and the quality of the continental breakfast could be improved.

GREAT! Very clean rooms, close to the beach with accessible chairs and towels so you don't have to take your own. Great guest service and quiet facilities. Pool was heated but very comfortable to swim in even in the heat of the day

The view was fabulous, the King bed very comfortable! The place super clean. Rentals for everything available locally. Beach is right there. Free shuttle service through Island Monkey available to night clubs, dinners, or other beaches. We were extremely happy with our choice to vacation here.

Perfect place! Service was excellent. Within walking distance of several restaurants and shopping. Breakfast choices great to grab and go. Room was exceptionally clean and the bed slept like a dream. Will definitely recommend and return.

We stayed for one week. The private beach is across a two lane road and easy to cross. Chairs and umbrellas are available. The resort also includes an inground pool. The room was comfortable with a kitchenette, A limited continental breakfast was available. The island has a free trolley that runs regularly, it stops near the office, you can ride to many local attractions and not have to drive your car! Local restaurants offer a wide variety of menu choices. We've now stayed for two Aprils, we love it there, and will return again! I highly recommend this resort, family friendly, great value! It's one hour from Tampa International Airport, easy drive down to the island.

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!
