Absolutely lovely hotel - rooms were amazing and immaculate. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - restaurant and bar were very good quality. Swimming pool area was very luxurious. All in all a great boutique hotel in a lovely location - just away from the madness of Candolim and Calangute.

Room Tip: Needs better breakfast...it is the only thing than

Just returned from a 2 week holiday at silver sands hide away... Would highley recomend this hotel to any1, the rooms are very clean big and modern, the bathroom the same standard and the air con is great, compared to the other hotels in candolim this is by far one of the best. would definatley rate this hotel as atleast 4 star. I am quite fussy where i stay and this hotel definately is at a high standard, they never stopped cleaning,
We never ate at the hotel because theres soo many resturants, rising waves is by far 1 of the best also foxys for a steak, ruffles and inferno..... to many to mention but never had a bad meal in the whole 2 weeks.
Had a great time in goa and would definatley return to hotel ,staff also lovely couldnt do enough for you, and considering your in goa and you look at the surroundings this hotel is absolute luxury.
Also would definatley recomend ingos night market on a saturday market its amazing, ask hotel reception to phone you a taxi we had walter he was lovely,.

The Silver Sands Hideaway is new B&B hotel, partially opened at the end of 2010, I think they said it’s a work in progress. Construction was delayed by the unfortunate case of a unintentionally-collapsible entrance foyer.
The entire hotel appeared to be standing quite firm when we departed.
Considering the size of the hotel, just 23 rooms, the reception area is large with many seats. We were exhausted after trying them all.
The lift,- which is conveniently located next to the reception area, via a well constructed wooden mini-ramp which I suspect is just a disguise for mischievously conceived step,- is fast and smooth, but small. The 'female-sounding' commentary is interesting, we were delighted when she informed us that we had arrived at the 'turd floor' and surprised to be thanked for riding with 'Omega elevators'. 'Have a nice day'. Absolutely divine.
A note for non-commonwealth visitors, G = ground floor (there is no garage floor), 1 = 2nd, 2 =3rd and unsurprisingly the top floor is 3 or what you would think of as 4th. You can see lots of things below you from here, like dogs trying to out bark each other on either side of a wall. If you get up early enough you can actually witness a man on a bike, laden with bread, peddling slowly around the entire neighbourhood whilst honking his astoundingly loud horn.

Breakfast is served adjacent to the small but perfectly formed pool from 8:00am, so no nosh before catching that morning flight. Chomp on two slices of 'white' toast, butter, jelly, tea/coffee and juice whilst baking your self in the sun. The tea is in the form of a micro-porous bag, sans string, conveniently submerged in a large pot of ambient water. I’m told that sometimes the chef puts some coffee in the coffee pot. What a treat that must be. Golden-brown toast is available upon request, but may take a disproportionate amount time due to its extra long journeys to the magical tanning machine. Cold drinking water will quench your thirst and any misapprehension you had that this is a quality hotel by relieving you of 25 of those pesky Rupees. A bonus is that it comes individually wrapped in the form of a PETE recyclable container and when you've sated your appetite, you can take it with you and later dispose of it at your leisure. Many locals and perhaps tourists too, appear to favour the ritual of laying, or perhaps even tossing them to rest along side their many kin-folk of the plastics genus and doggies by the roadside, perhaps that's how the cows get their much needed minerals.

You may be interested to know that Wi-Fi is available. This privilege is rated at 100rps/hour. Its signal is sporadic. The 'very helpful' evening desk manager blamed our lack of signal on European PCs software, not the thick walls!
Don't try to talk to him if the Thomson rep' is in the locale of the reception area discussing anything with another client, as, in his eyes you will become invisible.

If you request reception to order you a taxi, it may be a neighbouring driver named Angelo. He likes his amplified grime music. If Angelo offers his services for subsequent trips, be aware that he may request an hour or two in order to calculate the cost. He may supply this information, or he may find better things to do.

Be extra careful with the hotel hot water. If the setting of the control lever is just right, the resulting torrent has extremely efficient skin blushing and resultant flesh removal qualities. Otherwise the shower is great.
The bathroom is fitted with ‘designer’ fixtures and fitting. This includes a strangely shaped toilet. If you have a botty the shape of a shoe-box, you’ll love it. None of my family does; we didn’t.

The rooms are fitted with Asian round-pin/USA straight-pin electric sockets (aka plugs). Pleasingly, because India is very safety conscious, there are none in the bathroom, but neither is there a hairdryer, hand-towel, or those dirt-cheap little sachet thingies that most proud hotels supply for the convenience of their highly valued clients. They do supply, and were gratefully received, ‘physically-challenged sized’ solid soap as found in many similar establishments worldwide.
Also supplied was a toothbrush holder and two bath-towels.

All rooms have flat-screen satellite TV’s, telephone, empty mini-fridge, a wall mounted picture of minimalist dimensions, but beautifully lit and numerous other lights of all shapes and sizes. Hours of fun can be had by all.

The bed was huge and very comfortable with two down-filled pillows each.

There is a very good, non-mobile safe in the wardrobe, as are many high quality hangers, (I wonder for how long?). If you, like me, like drawers, I don’t think you will be disappointed, although we did feel more shelves would be handy.

Our sprogs loved the large mirrors in both rooms.

The air-conditioning unit is very efficient. Unfortunately in the standard rooms it’s quite close to and pointed directly at the bed. Not a real concern if like us you get one of the larger superior suites where it provides a pleasing zephyr.
The A/C won’t work if the balcony door is open. If you have double doors this is not really too big or taxing a problem. When you’ve figured out what to do and set the A/C to power-boost, many a cool hour can be spent on your balcony.
For your added comfort, there is also a ceiling fan. When set to turbo, you can watch the palm trees sway and also help reduce global warming.

There is a restaurant, but having experienced the breakfast, we exercised our option of eating elsewhere. The hotel location is ideal for many restaurants. Two excellent joints are just 2 minutes walk, Rising Waves and the deceptively good Fishermans Cove. Many others are just a few taxi minutes away.

Would we stay again? Yes, no question about it. It’s a very good base in the north

We stayed at the SSH for 2 weeks.We were a group of friends and family 13 people. The hotel was excellent, Great bedrooms with a fantastic bathroom. The build quality of the hotel and the finish was to a very high standard. The outside pool area was very clean and had great sunbeds. The pool was small but in proportion to the number of rooms the hotel has. The staff were very good in reception helping us book tables for evening meals at the more popular restaurants with us being a large group. The bar / waiter staff were learning fast. All were very friendly and tried their best to make our stay as good as they could.
The only bad point was do not stay on site for an evening meal. They could not cope with 13 people and maybe it was just teething problems with only being open several months. Hopefully they can improve this as the onsite restaurant overlooks the pool and is a great asset to the hotel.
The location was further from the beach than I thought but this was a small price to pay for the quality of the hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel in a quiet area. The pool and sunbeds are gorgeous. Its a much higher standard than one usually gets in Goa.
It only has 23 rooms but they are beautiful and so well appointed.
The place is spotless which one cannot often say about Goa !!

Last time we were in Goa our hotel was very basic, this time we were delighted with the quality of the room and the hotel in general. Have a look at the room pictured on the Thomson website - this is exactly what our room was like. We had a large american sized bed, built in fridge and furniture, a safe, ceiling fan and air conditioning. The balcony had lovely wicker furniture and the bathroom was really spacious with a big modern sink and a 'room for 2' walk in shower. The pool is big enough to have a proper swim in and was very clean, the sunbeds and double seats around the pool are wicker and the mattresses on them were scrubbed clean at the end of every day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only thing we can't comment on is the food in the hotel as we never ate there. The hotel only opened in Dec 2010 so the restaurant is still unknown and very quiet, we chose to eat out in the restaurants that were busy and that we knew the quality of food we would get. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the hub of Candolim market and only 15 mins walk to the beach. We loved Candolim the last time we were there and are even more in love with it after finding this gem of a hotel. We will definately be back next year.
