We arrived back from the Silver Sands Hotel today 17/06/10 and had one of the best holidays ever. We were a little dubious about booking after reading some of the reviews especially regarding small rooms and the cleanliness of the hotel etc. Try it for yourself you will not be disappointed. The rooms are well equipped with a safety deposit box, television,fridge and hairdryer the bathroom was a good size with a shower over the bath and plenty of hot water all day. Clean towels were left every day and the maids cleaned the room on a daily basis. We went bed and breakfast and there was plenty of foods to choose from they even had a chef cooking pancakes etc. The food was well cooked and replenished frequently.
The location of the hotel is directly on the beautiful Fig Tree Bay there are plenty of sunbeds and even cabanas around the grassed areas and the pool. It does get busy at weekends though when the local people come down but this is not a big problem. There are plenty of bars and restaurants just at the top of the road on the main strip. Would recommend Cheers for snacks and meals - huge portions! For something special try Eratos the food delicious and very welcoming staff.
There are plenty of watersports and boat trips which can be booked on the beach. If you want to see more of the island would recommend the Red Bus Company they do a village tour which is good. We did the trip to Famagusta with them to see the devastation caused by the invasion in 1974 . It is just a ghost town now hard to believe it was once the most popular area on the island and visited by all the rich and famous people. The guys who run the trips are very knowledgeable and friendly and the sight of a red London open top bus is quite a novelty.
We will be returning to the Silver Sands again very soon!
