Reviewed 30 March 2017

We really enjoyed our stay. We had a studio room for 4 of us, it was as a little small but we spent our time on the beach so it was fine for the time we spent in it. We loved the area and had amazing local restaurants! (Loved the wicked cantina) We will definitely be back.

Pool was very nice and laundry facilities were very clean. Only...

This property was in a great location on Anna Maria island. The accommodations were very clean and appreciated the daily maid service. Enjoyed being able to go down in the morning for the continental breakfast and coffee. Great way to start my day before a beautiful morning walk on the beach. The hotel also offers a private section of beach...

Some of the tips on restaurants, taking the monkey bus or the free trolley given to us by staff made this wonderful location even more attractive for a beach getaway with all the trimmings! We did meet some very nice people while staying and passed along the great suggestions given to us by staff.

The resort and surrounding are excellent! Didn't have to drive anywhere. The free trolley is an absolute bonus to get around and see the whole island. Great eats in walking distance too. Beach was perfect.

The Silver Surf has a fabulous location. The accommodations are somewhat dated, having a '60s motel look and feel, but the amenities more than make up for that - great beach, beach chairs and umbrellas included, adequate continential breakfast, nice pool, walking distance to great bars and restaurants, and very friendly and helpful staff.
