“No frills but friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2010

Stayed at this hotel for the entire month of November,having stayed two years ago and loved it.Only a very short flat walk to the beach and the shops and restaurants on beach road.
The hotel staff have changed very little and are as friendly and helpfull as ever.The superior room that we stayed in was basic but was kept really clean and tidy by the young man who did the housekeeping on a daily basis.
The pool and surrounding area has had a facelift since our last visit,with the addition of new sunbeds.

Our second time in Goa & won't be our last and will definetly be back to the Silver Sands. Due to a late monsoon it rained a bit and was very humid , January is eveidently a better time. Don' expect 5 star but this hotel more than makes up for it with lovely staff and proximity to the beach - whilst we were thare there were many returning guests , one who had come back for the 10th time and all were greeted like old friends by the lovely staff: particlar friends were pinto and ajay. During the day we ate and socialised at Bobbis shack where again old friends were popping in all the time. Many thanks to the beachboys Sanjay & Suresh for great attention - we ate , drank all day for under £7 each. We also went on a couple of themed nights there , Lobster night & Barbecue night and had a great time with all the staff. Candolim is the best place to stay out of the 3 resorts - we stayed at Calangute last time - though it will cost about £1.50 for a taxi between. Eat at Angara , Inferno , Alexandras in Candolim but avoid Fisherman's Cove : East Meets West at Baga . The First choice rep was fantastic - only downside was a bad flight back in a Thomson plane with narrow seat(had paid for extra legroom but it was still poor , the food was frozen and some people had nothing toeat and the staff were quite rude: going the First Choice plane was excellent and a different story altogether.

What a holiday, This hotel or resort is NOT five star but makes up for it in every other way as does candolim itself, the staff are so helpful and a big big thank you to Pintu and A.J.
All i can say is if this is your first trip to Goa (as it was ours) nobody can prepare you for the culture shock that will hit you like a brick in the face, from the moment you get off the plane you will be shocked by what you see, hear and smell but PLEASE go with the flow and the place grows on you very quickly, my wife and i were ready to get back on the next plane back to the uk (SO GLAD NOW THAT WE DID NOT). The silver sands is in a corner of candolim very close to the beach and away from the hussle of the main road, we stayed in a bungalow and was very happy with it, great way to do some people watching (and we did have some results shall we say) or we would sit out chatting to the people accross the path whilst having a few drinks. Good tip is TAKE A TORCH and spare battery, there are power cuts several times a day all over candolim but only last a few mins. THIS WAS OUR BEST HOLIDAY EVER and we will be going back soon.

After visiting Baga for our five previous trips to India, we decided to try Candolim. WE WERE DELIGHTED! Silver Sands is situated within a few metres of numerous fantastic restaurants serving heavenly food catering for all tastes, and about the same distance from the world famous Goan beaches!

Silver Sands Holiday Village delivers a typical Goan holiday experience from a perfect situation and has a swimming pool providing safe bathing. Most rooms have air conditioning, ensuite facilities and plenty big enough to allow space for your belongings and all the many reasonably priced Indian purchases that you are likely to make. The room cleaners are in every day and all services are provide with a pleasant and friendly smile. The breakfast is basic but can be taken and enjoyed near the beach and is served until very late morning.

How pleased were we? We are booked and can hardly wait to go back there in 2011!
