“Ideal Resort for family”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The resort has neatly furnished cottages laid out with nice walk ways. The play area and the dining area are also nice for families to relax. Food was served very hot and delicious. The resort is conveniently located though one could miss it's entrance on the main road. Staff are very nice and friendly.

My husband and i selected Silver Sands to stay because of its proximity to Mahabalipuram. We were offered the standard villa. On the plus side, the room was spacious and neat, and so was the bathroom and the staff were courteous. However at Rs. 3500 a night, the resort had nothing else to offer besides the room and the beach. We had assumed there was a swimming pool based on the reviews but apparently it comes only with the garden villa and other guests are not allows use of it. Since the garden villa was being occupied only the following day, when we were leaving, we asked if we could use the pool for an hour or two but was refused. Except for beach volleyball/frisbee/darts, all other adventure sports are chargeable. The pool tables are chargeable. I'm afraid we expected a bit more for the buffet breakfast than idli vada and pongal and coffee given the room rate.

In all, the resort was certainly not worth the money and i would not recommend staying there. It might be okay for day trips but otherwise it is a total rip-off. Very disappointing stay.

I am yeshwanth from Chennai. I would definitely have to say that this place is worth for families. me and my wife stayed there to celebrate my birthday and have to say had been the best experience ever for the money. expecting any more in beach resort would be too much to ask for. The place is very much isolated with calm surroundings. the mattress and the rest room were all great. every room is equipped with a fridge, lcd tv with Tata sky. wish to go back there soon.

After a long exhausting hunt I found this great resort on our very ECR, for our family weekend out and thanked my stars for having personally checked out the place,due to its highly inconspicuous entrance facade.. The website pics were convincing ,but unlike other resorts the pics were too real....Lovely cottages..Neat rooms,friendly staff,decent food(highlight- for we being vegans!!).Wow ..the beach and Casuarina grove....with all the adventurous activities.At the end of it we felt 2 days was not enough.Thanks Vikesh we had a great time...

Room Tip: Choose the newer ones ....

Silversands is a great place for families. Peaceful & quiet. Room service is good. Villas are spacious. Private beach was less crowded. We lost the TATA sky connection, which wasnt restored till we left. That was the only black spot. The resort's employees are friendy as well.

Room Tip: Standard Villa was good.

Since this is open to guests on a charge, there are lot of visitors who visit this place to swim or spend the day with family and friends. On that particular there was a huge group of guys who had come and where in the pool for the day making it little difficult for women to get in. Otherwise an average good place.
