We stayed at Silver Point from 19 to 26 Feb 2013. Generally, the place is great for Kiters and windsurfers, as you walk out and are literally on the kite/surf beach.
The rooms are clean, the staff is generally nice, friendly and forthcoming, and the whole place has a positive vibe.
However considering the things described in the following, the place is really heavily overpriced.
We paid $450 a night for an ocean view apartment. There's a terrace in front which is sealed off to both sides by a wall, which reduces the ocean view and also makes the main living/kitchen area really dark. The lightest room in the apartment is the bedroom, and unless you are not sensitive to light or use an eyecover, you'll be up with the light at around 6 - 6:30 AM every morning.
The bedroom two frosted glass windows facing east with orange semi-transparent curtains (hence the lightness in them morning), and two windows to the reception and storage area without glass but only shutters that can be closed. So if it is not the morning sun, you will be woken up by people slamming some door there or arriving/leaving or whatever.
The mattress is a spring mattress and really uncomfortable if you are used to better mattresses - and you would expect something else for $450 a night.
The kitchen does not have cooking plates which makes the huge fridge with freezer a bit useless. No way to cook in the place which is sad, especially given the fact that there are no good restaurants in walking distance, so you are sort of forced to eat at the hotel's restaurant.
The food is good but again too expensive. The service is friendly but slow. The choice of food is limited which is ok for a week but would not want to stay longer.
For a place in that price category, we were surprised about the lack of basic things like honey, maple sirup, healthy bread - or the fact that it happened repeatedly that some of the items on the menu were not available anymore. There are no real fruit juices, only artificial OJ and the alike, so nothing you want to drink if you are eating healthy.
The choice of wine is limited to one red and one white, and there's only one brand of beer which is in our opinion an "acquired taste" at best.
This leaves the water, which if you buy it at the hotel will cost you U$6.50 a bottle. You could of course walk to the only supermarket in walking distance (which except for water is a joke) and be offered cocaine and marijuana about five times on your way there.
There's a bunch of obvious dealers hanging out in fron of the hotel on the beach side who want to sell you stuff over the fence or simply let you know you should give them money because you have it and they don't - and if you don't they become really unfriendly. Security doesn't care as long as they do not enter.
The cabanas on the beach are nice but are usually occupied by people who do not even stay at the hotel but in one of the cheaper places down the road. The guests here funnily call them Wifi parasites as they also come here to surf the internet whilst occupying the cabanas - to the disadvantage of the paying guests who cannot get any cabanas anymore. And the internet is already ridiculously slow without these people using it.
There is no internet in the rooms so you have to use the internet poolside (where the cabanas are).
So in our opinion there's a few easy things the place should work on - update menu, get basic healthy stuff in, protect guests form harrassment, better internet et cetera (as described above), and lower their prices to an acceptable level.

Not necessarily suitable for middle aged non surfing kinds like ourselves in our early 50's
Stayed one night as close to air port on return back to London , Little arches would have been more appropriate but they were full . This was really very reasonably priced through the Barbados tourism , in fact it's worth looking at them first for any deals !
Silver Sands is mainly full of younger people though the next day I did see people staying older ! You can't have a gentle swim in the waters but the swimming pool is adequate. The staff are really helpful and we had a very good club sandwich , rum cocktail not very exciting but food and drink so cheap!!
The room we had was on the ground floor facing the car park but was nicely painted and rather large Very comfortable bed . It's an absolute night mare to find and they should really put some signs up if they want people to find the place , we went down lots of dead ends , so check with the hotel for clear direction s otherwise it will take an extra half hour !!

A group of 4 of us stayed here for 2 nights over the Christmas Season. Rooms were clean but a little small. The hotel seems to be badly managed. The food in restaurant was really nice & restaurant staff were very friendly. The public areas by the pool & beach were well maintained & relaxing. The beach was really nice but completely taken over with kite surfers. There was a bus stop only 5mins walk from hotel. The local bus service is excellent & very good value.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much The receptionists were very competent. Restaurant's food was excellent and waitstaff were very friendly and eager to please. The rooms were simple and clean. Supplies of soap, shampoo and lotion were always on hand for sunburned itchy skin and salty hair. Lounge chairs, Cabana beds and couches were a very nice accommodation.Water jug was a different type of fruit or cucumbers everyday, a nice touch. The other hotel guests were very friendly and interesting to talk to. The windsurfing and kiteboarding were fun to watch while sunbathing or eating breakfast or lunch. The water was a beautiful aqua color and sand white and clean. Will definitely consider returning.

Stayed here for a week of much needed R&R and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful rooms and gorgeous location on the beach. It's not in town so if you want to be within walking distance to everything, perhaps choose one of the bigger resorts further along the beach, but for some peace and quiet, and a touch of luxury, it's perfect. Bit pricey, but to be expected.
