I stayed here for 3 days in unit #3 at the end of Jan. It was nice. Very clean, and comfortable. It was like a little apartment away from home. The location was perfect.

The only complaint I have about this place is the creaky bed. Any movement in the bed caused it to creak very loudly. I would definitely stay here again.

What a great stay. We drove into Fort Myers Beach without reservations and shopped around the area for rooms. The Silve Sands gave a good rate for the days we required.
Their cottages are old but very cute and clean. There is lots of history to this place. The rooms have kitchens but there are so many bars & restaurants in the area with happy hours you don't need to cook at all. The girls we dealt with on the front desk were excellent and extremely helpful. They even booked us tee tiems at a discounted rate. Golfing in the Fort Myers area is very expensive. Their location is excellent - on the main strip right accross the road from the beach. We found the ocean too cold and so we hung around the Sands heated pool. I would stay here again without a question!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for noticing and appreciating that our cottages are old but cute and clean. We are so excited to be celebrating our 75th year in business on Fort Myers Beach. We take great pride in our property and servicing our guests. Glad you enjoyed the golf! Hopefully the ocean will be warmer on your next trip to Silver Sands!

These types of reviews are tough to respond to but, here goes. We know our property is old, we are proud to be celebrating our 75th year on Fort Myers Beach. We take great pride in keeping our property clean, updated and maintained. ALL of our rooms do have heat and air and we appologize that you were not able to operate the heat. We have hosted many group get togethers at our location and they always love the individual cottages. We are sorry your group did not feel the same way.

What a wonderful trip! When we arrived, we were greeted by such a friendly staff. It was a beautiful day and it was so nice to have traveled 19 hours and arrive, check in and get situated within 10 minutes. The location is perfect. You can walk across the street and be on the beach in 1 minute. There's a little alley that takes you straight there. Also, we stayed in the villa towards the back, right. We had our own parking section, which was incredibly convenient. We have family in Ft. Myers and it was nice to have them come to the beach with us for the day and park in our back section. The villa was very clean, bed was comfy, couch was comfy as well. Our refrigerator didn't work that well when we arrived. Wouldn't stay cold enough to keep the food and drinks cool. We contacted staff and they had a new refrigerator in our Villa within 1 hour. It was scorching hot the week we were there and it was a bit difficult cooling off our unit. Only recommendation I would give to the staff about the Villa would be to replace the air conditioners, provide a stronger unit to cool off the Villa. The ceiling fans do help in the evening. The pool and landscape were beautiful. Garden area was so nice to walk through in the evening. We weren't too happy with all the cats running around. Other than that, Silver Sands Villas is a perfect place to stay for just about anyone. It's more of quaint experience. We will be back this year and will stay at Silver Sands again! Thanks!

We stayed at Silver Sands in December. The location is perfect. A beautiful
beach across the roads, all kinds of bars and restaurants in the area.
The staff were wonderful. They all went out of their to ensure that enjoyed
ourselves.
We certainly go back.

We came with a group of 16. Everyone had a great time and really like the hotel. The location allowed everyone to find something to do that they liked.
We will be back again!
It was a bonus to be able to bring our dogs as well.
