Stayed here in March 2012. This was our 3rd time to Candolim but our first time in the Silver Sands Hideaway. I must admit when we booked it there were no reviews - only people chatting in the forum about where is was etc so we booked it and took a chance. We were so glad we did - most reviews since we booked have been mainly good but there is nothing like finding our for yourself. When we arrived we received a really warm welcome, Our room wasnt ready but it only took about 15 minutes and we were in. Originally we had booked a junior suite but Thomson had overbooked (we got to know about a month before we travelled) so we could only have a basic room. However, there was nothing basic about it, a very smart looking room with a massive bed (my partner is 6'5'' and his feet didnt reach the end). We got offered a move to a suite after a couple of days but we liked the room we were in. Very comfortable with very quiet air con. The breakfast that everyone seemed to moan about was basic - toast, cereal and eggs / omlettes, tea, coffee or fruit juice. But you could get a full breakfast for less than 200 rups down the road so why moan. The staff were great and the manager was a pure gem of a guy. Location was great - far enough off the road to be quiet and within easy walking distance to the beach / bars etc. If you do go - on the track down to the hotel is a little shop owned by a lovely old lady & her daughter - try her samosas - they are fantastic. I would definately stay there again.
