“silver sands resort not silver service”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

if your expecting smiles and helpful staff dont sty here,we stayed here whilst traveling aroun thailand at xmas 2011,never again,the staff were rude and couldnt be bothered!they just want your money,the place it self was nice we had a beautiful bungalow ,would not go again and in fact nearly all the places we stayed at were the same thailand is defo not the land of smiles anymore!we have been many time and it was quite a shock to find the people of thailand not so friendly anymore.

Room Tip: chose a room at the back as there is a big disco at the front which is really loud!

I stayed here just after new year and i did like it but cannot give it a glowing reference as the service wasnt the best. The food was great it just took a little long to be served and food can take a while. That could be down to a relaxed nature of the island. Appart from that the garden room i had was very nice and the beach looks lovley especially at sunset. Should be noted there is no pool and even in garden room there was alot of noise from the partying on the beach

All in all a beautiful location and i nice hotel with a relaxed approach to customer service.

Samet groans under the weight of hordes of weekend local, expat and overseas visitors, so with high demand, most places don't need to compete for customers. Unfortunately many of them couldn't care less - and Silver Sands is one of these. First, in the famed 'land of smiles', we didn't get one here. On arrival, the bathroom hadn't been cleaned, and - true to the overall attitude - not a eyebrow was raised when I pointed this out. To top it off, a staff member came into the room to show it to some other overseas visitors.... While we were in the room! Take my advice, go somewhere like Jep's Bungalow's, where the smiles and service are consistently higher.

Room Tip: Read up on Samet in advance and get a good place. Otherwise go to another, less crowded and polluted...

Location: right on the beach, nothing to complain.

Rooms: very large, clean, nice balcony. Nice rooms overall.

Service: poor. No smile at all, no help. Only ask for you to pay the room, that's pretty much it.

Restaurant: view on the beach, food is fine. But you wait way too long to get served.

Overall: place is just ok. There are much better places on the island in the same price range.

This hotel is located on a great location.
However it is managed purely by the owner of the resort at the front office,
she has a terrible service attitude, and that really matters in this service industry including tourism industry.

Beware! Rooms look clean and nice but carry bed bugs. Terrible experience. I only regret not planning the trip. We were walking along the beach looking for accommodation after a long journey and settled for what seem like a clean place. Was a terrible mistake!!

I stayed at Silver Sands in April 2011 in a modern air-conditioned 1 bedroom apartment and loved it. It was about 30m from the beach and the hotel's nightclub, but I couldn't hear anything when asleep. The beach is OK but a bit murky from all the boats coming in, but just 100m to the left of the hotel is another cove with no boats and much nicer beach. Most days, I took a ride over to the other side of the island to an amazing beach in front of Ao Prao Resort. There's a really amazing restaurant there NEXT TO the resort which is very cheap and delicious.

Further down the island is an amazing beach, but forgot the name. I spent the day walking back to Silver Sands exploring various beaches, stopping for lunch and a few swims along the way. Use your feet.......you'll love it.
