Great location, wonderful endless soft sand beach, super clean rooms, great pool and very friendly and helpful staff that made our stay one of the best vacations we've had in a long time. Excellent, very private mid-island location with easy access to other attractions. Not that you'll need any since once there you won't want to leave. Five stars? Heck no, we vote it 8-10 stars easy!
The best location on longboat key and the best unit to stay. Only one bedroom on the beach. So very private. The staff is very personable and treat you like royalty.
Would love to live in the Silver Sands Gulf Beach Resort year round, ha ha; ) the date of our last visit as just this last time. We are trying to talk my brother & his family into coming during summer 2014. I know they would love it!
If you want water, sand and sun then you've come to the right place. Easy access to room (only two floors) and plenty of parking. The room itself was perfect for us. Large king bed with a very comfortable mattress. The room was super clean and updated. We found the staff very helpful and friendly. We were here for fun, soaking up the sun, walking the beach daily and just relaxing and taking it easy. It could not have worked out better. This was our first visit and it went so well that we will be back but for a longer time. We already miss it.
Very good view of the Gulf, attractive facility and unit, very clean, friendly and accommodating staff, especially Lana Witek who manages the property. Everything worked well, including the wireless Internet - very important! My wife and I are looking forward to returning next year for an even longer stay.
This was our first stay at Silver Sands & my 15th on Longboat Key. Our Silver Sands 1 bedroom was perfect for my husband & me with a nice view of the Gulf from our 2nd floor lanai, so close to the beach, beautiful sand & seashells, uncrowded walks & gorgeous sunsets. Top that with a short drive to St. Armand's Circle for lunch & shopping.
We couldn't have chosen a better place for the price. Apt. was very clean & comfy, staff attentive & friendly.
This 2nd floor unit was very clean and well supplied with everything we needed - coffee, wine glasses, wifi, even beach novels. Staff were friendly and helpful. The balcony has a view of the pool and right beyond it the gorgeous white sandy beach; you can hear the waves. My only wish is that the balcony wasn't screened in, but I guess in summer you might need it. Altogether though a lovely place and we hope to return.
Great unit. It was a 2 bedroom unit which gave our family of 4 plenty of room during our stay. Very clean, kitchen well stocked with all the appliances and tableware that we needed. Back porch led out to the pool.
This is our second visit to Silver Sands 246. It was immaculate, tastefully furnished, and roomy enough for the two of us. The staff couldn't be nicer or more attentive. Bed is extremely comfortable. All the appliances and furnishings are like new. Silver Sands is well located to Harry's restaurant, bike rental shop, and movies in Sarasota (12 miles) and Bradenton (6 miles). Beach and pool are right out the back door!
