We planned to stay 1 week in this accommodation, but unfortunately checked out after one night.
This was because the beach bar played very very loud music until 3am every night. If this doesnt bother you, then otherwise this is a very good resort.
The rooms are very modern and spacious, with fresh stylish decor, TV with sky, fridge, modern bathroom, fan and a/c. You also have a large balcony.
There is a good restaurant with varied menu, a juice bar, a coffee bar, a crepe bar, and a beer bar.
Movies are shown on a big projector screen every night.
The resort is right on a beautiful beach, and just 15 mins away from the main pier, although the road is very bumpy, so dont try this walk with your suitcases on arrival.
Fan only 800-1000baht
They offered us a discount as we were going to stay a week, so always ask for this.
Overall the accommodation standards in Ko Samed are lower than other Thai islands we have visited, we found Silver Sands to be one of the very few that is up to Western standards. Thus it is very popular, book in advance if you want to stay here, 'just turn up' travellers could be disappointed that it is full.
(Budget travellers, beware coming here in high season, the National Park entrance fee is doubled. Overall the budget accommodation is lower standard, but higher in price. Silver Sands has been renovated, and there has been a price hike. Fan only never seems to be available...
Budget travellers should try the Koh Kaew Village (see the review for more details)
