Silver Sands is a nice resort located on the beach. The pool is nice and the beach, well, it's Longboat Key! The people aspect of the trip could have been better. After a sleepless first night due to getting in late and having a room close to the main road, I asked to be moved for my remaining two nights. It was clear to me that I was greatly troubling the office person with my request. She proceeded to let me know she had been out for two days and had dozens of emails to deal with.
I was always taught customers in front of you should get highest priority. As stated, she did not seem interested that I did not care for the room and wanted to be moved. She even went as far as telling the management company on the phone that, "He wants to be moved because of noise, yada, yada, yada." I was three feet way from her during this conversation. Other than that and the fact I had to pay an additional $25 insurance fee, I had a relaxing visit in the nicely decorated, comfortable room.
I am glad I did not expect much from the facility management, because I would have been truly disappointed.
