Really nice hotel, not much in the area
We had a very enjoyable stay at the hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The pool area had many beds and lounge chairs over looking silver rock beach, which was a prime destination for kite surfers. However, silver sands is quite far from the main tourist areas and I wouldn't recommend walking around the area after dark (it gets dark quite early near the equator). Other than dining at the hotel, there is one restuarant that is within walking distance, otherwise you will need to travel 10 mins into the nearest town, or 40mins towards the west coast- buses and unofficial bus vans are cheap if you don't mind being packed in; taxis are quite expensive.
