The Silver Sands is a pleasant and reasonably priced, but "bare bones" motel with few amenities. There is no restaurant on the premises, no gym, no shops, no safe in the room. There is a miniature golf course and a pool and a lovely beachfront where I enjoyed watching the spectacular sunsets! My room was adequate, but small and not very attractive. It would have been nice to have some carpets on the bare floors. The staff is friendly and helpful - especially the lady at the front desk who helped me with my luggage. You really need a car to get anywhere, except, perhaps, to Harry's which you can walk to for a decent, if rather expensive, breakfast!
