As a barrier island to the town known as the area's "cultural capital", an assortment of entertainment options can be found at nearby Sarasota where attractions and activities abound for all age groups.

All of the golf courses located on Longboat Key are private, however nearby Sarasota and Bradenton areas offer top-rated golf courses a short drive off the island.

St. Armand’s Circle of Lido Key is a must-see in the area. Located just 10 miles south of Silver Sands this European-inspired outdoor shopping arena includes a large selection of classy stores, restaurants, jewelry galleries, and more! Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game and turned the sister island to Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.

Nice property, daily cleaning and housekeeping needs work

  • 3 of 5

This was our 1st visit to Silver Sands. We have been coming to LBK for over 10 years but stayed at other places. The property, grounds and beach are great ( although our unit needs a facelift). What kept this from 5 stars was the quality and attitude of the housekeeping staff. Towels are supppsed to be changed daily and weren't. Bed linen are to be changed every 3 days, but was only changed once in 2 weeks. When we asked for new towels, the cleaning lady couldn't understand us and also looked disappointed when we said we'd like our room cleaned. One day it was not cleaned at all. Finally, the management allows smoking in the lanais. I am disapppointed with this policy, because the smoke drifts around.

The people next to us were chain smokers and the smoke drifted into our lanai and caused us to stop using the lanai and keep the door closed to our unit.

Owner's Response: Our sincerest apology to this guest for a disappointing stay. These issues have been addressed; and we assure them we intend to provide excellent vacation experiences. We can also sympathize with the smoking policy concerns, and when able we are happy to move guests to a more accommodating location. We thank this guest for their constructive points and hope they will consider Silver Sands again for their next trip to Longboat Key.
