Hi has anyone stopped in the deluxe rooms as i've booked one,if so what facilities are they all fitted with are A/C ,Fridge standard or do you have to pay extra,im a bit worried there's no A/C unit at all,lots of guys seem to recommand an upgrade to a superior room are the deluxe pretty poor, the hotel says if theres one free on arrival its 1000rps a day seems a bit steep
cheers RJL

We've booked a superior room because of what we read on the reviews - no AC or fridge in the bungalows and that they are rather dark and claustrophobic. I understand that there *are* AC units in the cheaper rooms, but like you say you have to pay for it on top. We go on Wednesday so when we get back on the 13th I'll have a better idea.

Having just got back I would recommend the Silver Sands. It's in a brilliant location - you can't get any closer to the beach. The staff are lovely, the rooms are fairly basic but very clean.

My only complaint is that the beds are ROCK HARD, but I don't know if that's just that hotel or a regular feature if you stay anywhere in Goa.

Anybody stayed at this resort? Would ike to hear from anyone who has stayed at this hotel. We are looking to stay for 2 weeks in January but only know what we have read on the forum. Is i suitable for more mature people (not old codgers) but are worried that it may be a hotel for younger people. Any advise would be appreciated.

It's nice and not especially for younger people, I stayed there a couple of years back. Not in the cottages in one of their premium rooms.

Only slightly annoying thing was they kept on turning the power off to the rooms whenever we went out so the A/C was always off when we got back, even if we were only gone 30 mins or so

i love this hotel, the loction is great and the staff and athompshere here really made our holiday all the guests were friendly and welcoming and offered advice if needed and yes the rooms are basic unless in a superior room, but lets be honest we only need the rooms to sleep in. loved it so much going back again in just under a week.

Julian we are also staying here at the end of March.
We were booked for the Ronil Beach but we had to change our holiday and couldnt get Ronil Beach for the dates we wanted so opted for Silver Sands.
We are also staying in a superior room so I look forward to hearing what you think of the place, any recommendations, hints/tips etc.
I am not sure where the superior rooms are situated in the hotel, dont know if anyone can answer that or can recommend any good room numbers?

Hi Gemma, its a shame i'm gonna miss you for by a few days, last time i stayed there i really enjoyed it.
4 years since i was last there and i think the superior rooms were fine, basic as i've said but fine for a base and only 50 yards or so to the beach!
The staff were all very friendly, which is why on returning this year my first booking choice was Silver Sands.

Think i might have some photos if you want me to email to you?

Looking forward to meeting your double act, IC :rofl :rofl :rofl

Are you talking of the Silver Sands in Colva or somewhere in the North?
