This was my 10th trip to SIlver Sands and I'm already planning my next one! The resort completely reminds me of Key West--the look, the feel, the chill atmosphere! We stayed in villa #5 this time and were comfortable the entire time. We had an issue with the air conditioning going out after hours and Andrea and Tom quickly came to the rescue! There is so much to do within walking distance--multiple bars, restaurants, shops...the beach and the pool are my favorite though! We lived in the pool during our 10 day visit!

we've stayed here every year since 2002 and have always been anxious to return. we stay in the "garden area" at the rear of the property and love the individual cabins that give a sense of privacy and remind us the way it used to be in the florida of the past. no high-rise, elevator-served, hotel feeling here. just charming, easily-accessible individual rooms or multi-room efficiencies in which you can stay for weeks at a time without feeling cramped. and all within EASY walking distance of 20+ restaurants, 3 or 4 funky beach bars (yes, right on the sand) and shops too numerous to mention. you could pay less for a room on the island, but you'd get a LOT less for your money. 50 steps away from the beach, a clean, heated pool, a tiki hut for evening happy hour, watching the always-changing passing scene on estero boulevard – what else could you ask for?

in the course of the last 25 years we've stayed at properties all over the island, and always had to get into the car to go to lunch or dinner or shop. as we stay for 6 or 7 weeks at a time, we drive here from the midwest, but if we didn't have a car here, we wouldn't miss it. once we discovered silver sands, we never stayed anywhere else. the staff is friendly and helpful, and every guest we've met over the years has been easy to talk to and get to know (if you want to). over the past 10 years, we've come to be good friends with many of the returning guests, and look forward to seeing them again on our next visit.

in case this review make this place sound too good, i have to say that this is NOT a paid advertisement. no affiliation with silver sands. just a very satisfied customer (obviously).

We have been going back to the Silver Sands for our winter retreat for 10 years now.
That should tell you something, Where not just guests where part of an extended family.
It's close to every thing and we love the warm welcome that all the staff shows us that they care about us and do every thing to make our stay a stay in paradise.

Our unit #12 needs a thorough cleaning. Cob webs in the corners, stains on all appliances, holes in the screens. We had a hard time opening the sliding glass door, so much gunk in the track. The screen kept falling off the track. The outside table hadn't been cleaned in months. We had to place the coffee pot and the toaster on the sink to reach the only plug in the kitchen. The burners on the stove didn't sit flat ,the plates underneath didn't fit correctly. I feel they should at least supply dish detergent and coffee filters. They kept the outside looking nice and the location was great.
