“Beautiful and peaceful experience in Unit #23”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The convenience of being on the ground floor and only walking a couple steps to unload baggage and groceries was a huge plus for us! The view that this unit has from its patio looking straight at the beautiful blue water in the very short distance with the most beautiful flowers all around us was unsurpassed! This unit is very spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and an open floor plan with big dining room table and plenty of sitting area for TV. We used the BBQ pit on the patio to cook a few evenings which was great for us!
This complex is so nice and quiet and away from the big hotels down the way. It has the widest beachfront for the fewest amount of rooms anywhere on Seven Mile Beach. You can snorkel right off the beach! Great thatched huts when you need to be out of the sun. The pool is huge and very clean. Actually the entire place is maintained unbelievably. There is a big pavilion just off pool area on beach that is great for happy hour and watching the sun set! I do not think anyone could ever get tired of this gorgeous place!

Just got home from a wonderful vacation in Cayman Island. We stayed in unit #24. The views from the condo are something to dream about!! This unit has all the comforts of home and is decorated in the beautiful Carribean colors that add to the relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed swimming in the gorgeous pool everyday and looking around at the incredible well manicured grounds of the complex. This condo complex is at the end of seven mile beach and is very quiet and peaceful. Snokeling right off the beach is some of the best in the world!! Water is aqua blue and abundant with fish! The restaurants in the area are great! This is the second time we have stayed in unit #24, and hope that it's not our last. Thanks again for the wonderful experience.

I visited Grand Cayman and stayed at the lovely Silver Sands Condominiums. Our "home" looked at the beach and the gardens and pool. it was perfect! Quiet and private and inches from snorkeling or sitting under the trees watching the sunset. We walked the long beach every morning, swam, snacked, swam more, lounged, and cooked wonderful meals in the newly renovated kitchen or our place (#8). There are tennis courts and many things to do but we motly stayed put, sinking into the sand and letting all else drift away.

I can't wait to go back to this exact spot!

Room Tip: Go for the Garden side. I loved apartment 8.

This was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had in a long time. I know one goes to Cayman to enjoy the gorgeous weather, but I personally like to stay in a nice and clean place. I also enjoy to have some space...and this condo more than accommodated the four of us. Our bedroom was huge as well as our bathroom. The downstairs has a living room, dining area and separate kitchen. It's about 15 steps to the beach and once you're on there you can literally step into the water and start snorkeling. The beach has the beautiful white sand that I love. I did not try the pool because I'd rather be in ocean, but it looked great. I highly recommend this condo...we'll definitely be back.

Silver Sands was an absolutely wonderful vacation spot. The condos are tucked away from all the tourist trap hotels. They promise, "a great beach, relaxing sun bathing and comfortable rooms". Well let me tell you this is just the opposite. I have made several trips to Grand Cayman (for the best diving/snorkeling trips, family activities, and overall great weather) and stayed at multiple different hotels/ condominiums. NONE have come even close to what Silver Sands has to offer.

At other places there are 50-75, and even hundreds of rooms for people to stay. Silver Sands has 42 condo's, BUT only 14 of them are rentals!! 14 and most likely they will not all be sold out because Silver Sands is a well kept secret.

Silver Sands has a beach larger than most hotels offer and you don't have to worry about fighting for space on the beach. You and your family can spread out and do whatever you want. You don't have to pay for beach chairs like those other commercial tourist traps that most people fall into.

They have a great gazebo, pool, a bunch of thatched huts for shade, a volley ball court, tennis court and a botchy ball court.

Before our trip my husband and I and family looked at a few of the different layouts of condo's to stay in. We chose #23. This is a gorgeous two bedroom two bath, full kitchen ground floor apartment with every amenity. It was very close to the beach and even closer to the pool. Being on the ground floor made it very easy to run into the condo and grab things if we forgot them and just very accessible to walk outside the sliding glass door right into the beautiful landscaping.

During our trip we were very pleased with our stay and had a wonderful time. We will never stay anywhere else again and have already booked our next stay for this upcoming summer.

I would HIGHLY recommend Silver Sands and also #23 condo is a great layout that is very comfortable.

Room Tip: We love #23, has two full bedrooms, two full baths, a full kitchen, sofas, flat screen TV, large din...

We (3 adults) rented Unit #13 at Silver Sands for a week. Worked perfectly for us. The gardens around the property were beautiful. The pool was large enough for the one lap swimmer to enjoy...mostly without anybody else in the pool! There were always plenty of loungers at the beach and areas of both sun and shade so that was never an issue. This part of SMB was well sanded and very quiet, yet you could walk maybe ten minutes to snorkel at Cemetery Beach. The condo was well equipped and comfortable (though no tvs in the bedrooms, not that this was an issue for us). Housekeeping did a good job (came every other day) and we always had towels. Everybody working at the condo complex was very pleasant. Due to mobility issues, we chose this ground floor unit..only one or two steps for access along the single floor condo. This did mean that we couldn't see the ocean from our outside patio table (view of the gardens towards the beach) since we were level with the grounds, but there were plenty of tables closer to the beach if we wanted to dine with ocean view. Unit #13 is also fairly close to the main road but we didn't find the traffic noise to be a bother. Could also walk about 15 minutes to the nearest grocery store, but the restaurants were further (close by car but too far to comfortably walk) so either a rental car (which we had) or using the bus would be necessary from the Silver Sands. We really had a lovely, relaxing time during our stay and would recommend the Silver Sands as a good place to stay at its price point in GC.

Our stay at the Silver Sands, unit 38, far exceeded our expectations! This unit is closest to the beach with incredible ocean views from both bedrooms! We were lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the ocean and the fabulous breeze! The patio is steps from the beach which made it extremely convenient throughout the day when we needed a snack or drink. It felt like we were on a secluded beach! No crowds at all and located close to restaurants and stores. I also can't say enough about the grounds! Georgous landscaping and superbly maintained by the friendliest staff. This trip was about great friends celebrating a special event and it was all that and more! Thanks Kathy and Joe....you gave the four of us a week of relaxation and a lifetime memory!!!!

Room Tip: Unit 38 is truly the ideal location! It's a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath closest to the beach!!
