“The Villas that time forgot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This was my second stay at Silver Sands and I was hoping my first time wasn't a fluke. I was just as happy this time around. I brought my folks and we stayed in two rooms, they had a pool side cabana and I stayed upstairs in a hotel room. We had the best of both worlds. We hung around their place in the mornings and evenings and when it got too warm, we headed up to my room and perched ourselves on lounge chairs, under the porch, with a tropical ocean beeeze and enjoyed cocktail hours and people watched the characters on the boulevard. The place is beautiful, the rooms spotless. I brought my meduim size shepard mix and she had a blast, FMB is pet friendly. The staff is friendly and I think would do cartwheels if asked. My parents, who usually stay at big named resorts, were so charmed, they are already planning a trip back with more of the family.

Room Tip: The upstairs hotel rooms fronting the ocean are wonderful when it is hot. Great breezes on the porch...

Great location, and walking distance to Times Squares, restaurants and bars. This property is not beach side but across the street from the beach. Stayed over a long holiday weekend in one of the cabins. They are older and while updated and fully equipped with anything you might need, there is only a window a/c unit so the living/kitchen area was always freezing and the bedroom never really cooled down at all.

We stayed here for five nights over the Easter holiday (just as Spring break season was wrapping up). We stayed in a efficiency unit upstairs. It had everything we needed. Silver Sands is secluded but yet in the heart of it all. This was my 8th visit to FMB and first stay at Silver Sands. We decided not to rent a car and were happy with our decision. Beach is a hop skip and jump away. Restaurants, bars, shops all within walking distance. Special thanks to the family like staff at Silver Sands! What a great place to spend my 50th birthday!!

We booked over a dozen rooms over the course of several days leading up to, and including, our wedding day. Each and every one of our friends and family members who stayed at Silver Sands have done nothing but rave about their experience. It was as if we rented out a beautiful tropical garden cul-de-sac in paradise, in which we could walk out our front door and see the face of someone dear to us. We are already planning The 1st Annual Silver Sands Reunion Tour... and I know that there will be many more to come.

Party of two stayed in Cabin #6- 2 beds and 1 bath with living area and kitchen. We enjoyed our stay and loved to location- The resort is quiet and cute with a nice pool and Tiki bar area and located within walking to all Fort Myers Beach has to offer. I will stay again when back in the area.

Stayed last year for our Anniversary, loved the fact we can bring our 2 Min Pins.
We live close (Cape Coral) People are not joking when they say this place is a gem. Park your car and forget it. No elevators or long hallways everything is just outside your door. If you have dogs Lee County beaches are the best. Checking in next weekend for our 20th Wedding Anniversary with the mutts, wish we had found this place years ago. See Ya Soon.
