This hotel does not have a pool, the pool in the photograph advertising Silver Sands is a distorted image of an above ground pool situated right beside a dirt road, with bikes and general public walking past, constantly. It is the dive school's teaching pool. NOT A SUITABLE POOL FOR CHILDREN, OR RELAXING. The room's have no privacy, the blinds have to be pulled down at all times and if not, have a look one of the images I have loaded. The bathroom has no privacy, the room has no balcony, the external lights are left on ALL NIGHT so the room is never in the slightest level of darkness suitable for sleep, I slept on one side, back the the windows for the 6 unhappy nights I was there (sadly no more hotels were available,peak season. I tried to move) The rude woman in reception promised the lights would be turned off at 8pm, but I bet this is what she tell everyone who complains. It is situated on the main road, with a walkway to the beach on the lefthand side, and access through the centre of the hotel, with a constant stream of drunks, all night, with people screaming and fighting all night. ie. no security whatsoever. I was woken at least 10 times a night with lights and people screaming. There is no suitable bedside lighting, so forget reading in bed. After I paid 22,000 baht, for 2 rooms,the woman at reception didn't even say thankyou, or hope you had a nice time - nothing. A few lessons in politeness wouldn't go astray here. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE. Also, there is NO WHERE TO RELAX AT THIS HOTEL. No Beach, a small platform 2.5 x2.5 on the very narrow beach is the only place, which is of course always taken. Otherwise, its locking yourself in your room, with the blinds pulled down. And, there is NO HOT WATER.
