We decided last minute to stay on FMB to enjoy the final days of summer vacation. We were traveling with our dog and needed a place that would allow pets...on the beach. There were not many choices but Silver Sands came highly recommended from a neighboring facility that we had stayed at last summer. We were able to easily book our room despite the short notice and we were charged a fair rate. I was concerned about staying on the bay-side of the beach vs. the gulf-side but Silver Sands is located right across from a beach access point so, it took three minutes to get to the sand! The property is also very nicely situated near the main part of the beach where all the action is. You are a very short walk to the pier, live music, great eateries & shops (in both directions).
We were given a detached cottage right next to the pool and it could not have been cuter. The one bed room, one bathroom suite had a full kitchen and basic supplies for cooking most things. Bring a blender! The cottage was clean and neat and had been nicely maintained and even had a little front porch to hang out on. The pool was fabulous and the grounds were groomed and clean. There were plenty of lounge chairs for sunning and tables for eating, even a tiki bar set up as well as a place to sit and people watch up and down the boulevard.
The staff were not only courteous and accommodation but fun and easy going and made us feel right at home. The Guest Services room was well supplied with pool toys, board games, books to borrow and extra housewares.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay immensely! I will def stay at Silver Sands again and would highly recommend it for family and romantic trips!
