We loved the proximity of the pool. beach! The bathroom need attention. Tub does not drain well.
Silver Sands has a wonderful family friendly atmosphere! Our unit was clean and well appointed. However, the bathroom could use some updating. We had a slow drain in the bathtub. Overall, I highly recommend this place!
Great getaway location
Very clean, accommodating, comfortable for two. Nice small lanai porch for morning coffee or happy hour. Easy access to beautiful beach. First couple of days were very quiet, then a family with rather boisterous kids dominated the pool area and it got noisy...would likely have said something if we weren't on our last evening. Thought that this season would have been clear of this, but evidently this family thought it a good idea to take kids out of school for a vacation.
That's the risk you take at a small, less expensive resort such as this.
My 84 year old mother and I spent 4 days in Unit 244. It was a perfect spot for us. I was able to spend time at the beach and she was able to sit on the lanai and take in the beautiful landscaping, the children playing in the pool, and watch the sunset at the little TIKI hut at the edge of the property. I wish I had found this gem of a place earlier in my life--perfect for families with children of all ages as well as those of us who have "aged a bit!"
Silver Sands on Longboat Key
Nice, clean, well-equipped facility exactly as pictured on line. Set back a bit from the road so no traffic noise. Beach was beautiful with endless walking and gorgeous sunsets. At times during the day the pool was pretty busy with some boisterous, poorly supervised kids. Evening & overnight quiet time was well respected. Wi-Fi was weak at times. Harry's Convenience store within walking distance for anything you forgot to get at the grocery store.
