How to Get There
If you are a Kiteboarder, or Surfer -this is your beach. Silver Sands, Freight's Bay, and other beaches nearby are the best spots for surfing and kiteboarding. However, swimming and snorkelling - no. We stayed at Silver Point for 4 nights recently so we could rent boards and surf with Zed's nearby. Silver Point is in need of some TLC. The staff are wonderful and whatever we needed fixed - they worked hard to fix including finally upgrading us to an ocean front suite so that we had a working shower. The location is stunning. The restaurant has good food but the dining room has been sorely neglected, no decor at all. The rooms are lovely with the exception of needed new sofas ( stained covers just won't do for hotel rooms). The kitchenettes lacked enough workable supplies to really make any kind of simple meal - a decent coffee maker and/or a kettle would do it. Silver Sands is off the beaten track and that is what can make it wonderful if you interested in the activities the area has to offer. Focused attention to a few details could make this place fabulous as the people working there are lovely.
I had to choose one night and this spot was open when I arrived- They had security guards in front and back. I like the restaurant food was good. Just steps from the beach for kitesurfing. I had my car to travel around. It is located in a secluded area. I didn't stay longer because they only had wi-fi in the main area not in the room!
I arrived a mess ! After the mother of all work projects, which should have been amazing, but wasn’t and just to tie an in-perfect bow around my pre-holiday mode, a break-up.
My lovely driver Dunstan, was right on time and waiting with a smile on his face, to pick me up from the airport. The drive to the hotel was about 10 mins, during which time, despite the fact it was dark, I was already swooning in the back of the cab, at the night lights and homes we passed by.
I was greeted by the lovely Suzette, a woman whose smile, charm and welcoming disposition put me instantly at ease, during check-in. I was delighted learn from Suzette, that my room had been upgraded.
And my joy was doubled by being introduced to the wonderful Mr Cummings (a hotel legend) after I’d finished checking in, who graciously carried my bags to the room, gave me some additional hotel information and left me with warm words and a smile, that left me in no doubt that I would love Silverpoint and he was soooo right !
I literally squealed when I opened the door to my room, with a key, such a unique experience for today’s traveller, but a lovely throwback moment.
My room turned out to be an immaculately clean, glorious studio apartment, complete with double bedroom. Enough to make my heart sing. Throw in the additional joy to any travelling Brit the world over....of a kettle in the room, with teabags and I was in heaven.
However my joy didn’t end there. My final delicious surprise, that I discovered in the morning was my balcony, which had a gorgeous sea facing view.
The words "LUCKED OUT !” danced across my lips and as I settled in, I felt truly blessed and grateful to be granted the privilege of a free room upgrade.
My bed was EPICALLY comfortable. One of the best I’ve slept during my three years of travels so far. Dare I say it, it was so cheekily indulgent, I kind of wished I had a special somebody with me, to share it (but maybe next time!) .
The bedside lamps weren’t to my taste - I would have liked them to be more beach inspired, contemporary and have light coloured shades. Overall, I felt the room furniture worked, but could have done with a more contemporary feel to really lift the room.
As ever, I feel you can never have too many powerpoints, so yes, I would have liked more, dotted throughout the entire room. This request comes from constantly travelling with cameras, mobile hotspots, phones, tablets and a chromebook - yes, when I charge up, it can be a bit of a mission.
The shower was immense - like huge, with excellent water pressure. I am a lover of snowy white, fluffy towels - and I had plenty, helpfully located under my sink vanity. The bathroom was nicely decorated and well-lit meaning there were no make-up application mishaps when taking off my make-up at night and re-applying it in the morning .
I was a little disappointed with the toiletries in the bathroom which felt and looked cheap. Guests like toiletries, it’s a fact, so either give them what they want and make the effort, or don’t provide them at all.
There are so many cool non-expensive toiletry companies who i’m sure you could partner with.
I would suggest the hotel connects with a local partner or collaborates online with someone like Onoxa to produce your own white label toiletries, exclusive to Silverpoint Hotel, which could be purchased by guests.
A microwave, crockery, cutlery, kettle and tea bags - what else do you need or want when you’re on a layover or holiday.
Just as an aside, I mention the waves crashing against the beach as I write this review I didn’t, well I am just to show off - I love being by the sea (even though I can’t swim to save my life! I love the sound and smell of it the ocean
Overall the restaurant layout was well thought out and the staff are top tier in terms of engagement and food recommendations.
The menu was small, but diverse enough to cater for all tastes and in terms of product knowledge the restaurant staff, were masters in painting a tastebud story, about what your selection might be.
Price wise, I thought the restaurant was a tad pricey on some of their dishes. Food pricing is always a tricky issue to address in terms of providing great all round value for your guests and a decent mark-up for the hotel/resort.
I felt this could have been easily addressed by adding a small selection of mid-priced sharing platters, for those on a budget and if the platters featured - some bite-size versions of some of the main dishes, it would give an opportunity for guests to taste first, before purchasing the main dish.
The restaurant was directly connected to the bar and facing the suntrap zone, where you can chill out on large double beds, to relax and get your tan on, directly behind this area, was a small pool, again surrounded by beds to relax or use to raise your instagram numbers.
The staff are awesome. Gold star standard all the way. Every member of staff I encountered was thoroughly professional and totally understood what was expected from them. It felt like I was staying with family and as if you can’t tell already, I will be returning to Silverpoint in 2019. It would be a travesty not to return for a longer stay in my opinion.
Do I have a bugbear about Silverpoint, after all of this praise, well yes, their Wifi, but as you would expect from me, I also have a solution for them.
I couldn’t get wifi reception in my room at Silverpoint and it was inconvenient. I learnt that if you were ‘lucky’ and this was entirely dependent on where your room was located on at Silverpoint, you might be able to get wifi reception on your balcony.
Silverpoint management team - I love all of you, (even though we haven’t met) but I have to take you to task about the wifi. Wifi is a guest essential. If you are unable to provide wifi in every guests’ room, you need to be upfront about it, managing your customers expectations before they arrive and providing them with a solution.
I suggest you do the next best thing, collaborate with mobile hotspot company like Skyroam Solis and invest in some portable hotspot devices, which you can then rent to your customers.
It’s a quick, easy, ongoing additional revenue stream for you to harvest and and would save sorry workaholics like myself turning up in the restaurant (where there is wifi) in their PJs at night, frantically looking for wifi, after hours.
Yes, I own up to doing that, but in my defence, my PJs were very cute and my client was in another time zone, at the end of a Skype call, waiting to connect with me.
I cannot recommend the Silver Point Hotel enough !
Stayed at this resort as it was considerably cheaper than others at the time we wanted to travel. Yes, there's nothing around the hotel, but you can easily get places with the Z buses who are always on the look out for passengers!
The rooms were nice and clean and the views were stunning. The area is apparently quite rough but we didn't have any trouble, the locals were friendly and the resort had security. The restaurant was fantastic - food was top quality. Loved the banana pancakes! They were huge - enough to feed two.
The only real negatives were that we missed the all inclusive and that the sea was quite rough. If you're a light sleeper, the sound of the waves will no doubt keep you awake. This would be the only two things stopping me return to this resort. Great value for money!
The best part of this hotel is the security guards, Peter and the others. The front desk is atrocious and useless, the pool and cabanas are dirty and the beach is not fit to go swimming in as it is gorgeous to look at but seems dangerous for swimming. The hotel also isn’t close to anything like restaurants or good beaches. Just stay elsewhere and save yourself the hassle.
