Good stay
Pool was out of service the first and part of the second day (not mentioned at the time of the booking and didn't find out until arrival) but I was able to use one nearby. Other than that I was satisfied.

Silver Sands
I enjoyed staying at the Silver Sands very much! It is great that they have both chairs and beach umbrellas for those who visit from out of town. The beach is much less crowded than other beaches in the area and there are lots of shells to be found!

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

One night stay
The room served its purpose for us. We only needed to stay one night as our condo was not available until the following day. The room/bathroom were clean. It is fine for a short stay as the room does not have a kitchen.
