Positive Reviews

Private beachfront location

Silver Sands Gulf Beach Resort is set on a beautiful stretch of private beach. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are provided. The beach is never crowded so you can relax in peace. Additionally, the complex is located close to supermarkets, shopping and great restaurants. You're also close to Sarasota, Anna Marie Island and lots of fun areas worth exploring.

Clean and well equipped

Both grounds and apartment units are clean and well maintained. Apartments have fully equipped kitchens so you can easily prepare meals rather than eat out all the time, which is especially nice for longer stays or family trips. Second floor units facing the beach and pool area have lovely scenic views.

Good beach vacation facilities

The complex offers a heated pool, private beachfront, mini putt, shuffleboard and a picnic area. There are grills if you want to barbecue and kitchens for self-catering. It's a great option for a relaxing beach vacation and well suited for families. The staff is friendly, helpful and happy to provide area information and answer questions.

Negative Reviews

Small hotel rooms

The hotel style rooms (not the apartment units) at Silver Sands Gulf Beach Resort are quite small. Also, while they have kitchenettes, these are limited to a fridge, microwave and a few dishes so you can't use them for much more than a quick snack. Also, there isn't a proper sink and you need to wash up in the bathroom. Upgrade to an apartment unit if you want a better self-catering option.

Small TVs

The TVs are rather old and basic. Not a big deal in nice weather but a bit disappointing if you need to spend time indoors.

Noisy air conditioning

Rooms have individual window A/C units that are rather noisy and keep you up at night.
