My husband and I stayed at the Silver Sands back in 2007 when we got married, as did our wedding guests. Fast forward all these years later, and we went back for another stay at this lovely resort. First of all, Clint provided us with exceptional service, which is part of why we're continually loyal to this hotel over all of the other options. Secondly, the beach is beautiful and private, so you can relax and enjoy in peace. Plus the rooms are always sparkling clean, and the beds are super comfy. If you want to enjoy the splendor of Longboat Key in casual elegance without breaking the bank, this is your best bet. As a Florida local, this is my stamp of approval.

    Spring break

    Had a great time, exactly what we wanted. Walked out our door and right to the beach or the pool. Clean, smaller in scale so small community atmosphere. Right in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go!

    Very quiet property, steps from the beach. Loved having access to free beach chairs and umbrellas. The bed was older and not as comfortable as we would have liked, but overall we loved this resort.
