The equipment in the unit was fine but the A/C machinery on the roof overhead was old or broken and thrummed intermittently disturbing our sleep all night and all week. The manager said "We've had this problem before", and he said he would have someone look at it. Nothing changed as far as we could tell - a real bummer.... More

Stayed in Unit 401 for 5 nights. This is a gulf front unit with sun most of the day. Updated Bathrooms were a welcomed surprise. The kitchen is very dated and in need of updating. The king size bed was very uncomfortable and needs to be replaced sooner than later. Overall, this is a good unit for Gulf Front views... More

We just returned from a wonderful three week vacation in Unit 202 which was beautifully decorated and very modern. We didn't have a car and enjoyed walking to get groceries and to great local restaurants. The beach is beautiful and the sunsets from our balcony were spectacular. Betty is a welcoming and excellent manager and John who works in maintenance... More

The beach is gorgeous, great view from #201. Bit outdated furnishings, including lots of silk floral arrangements. A little investment could greatly improve interior. It is also right above pool and near beach entrance, definitely no privacy as everyone walking to pool or returning from beach looks right onto balcony. If you can't tolerate heat, go with one of the... More

Returned to Unit 201 for 6 nights. We were pleasantly surprised at the new updates to the bathroom mirrors & walls. The interior doors were also updated. We truly love staying on the Gulf Front Side during our twice per year visits. 90% of this unit is updated. The bathroom needs a new shower & tile and the second one... More

I want to start by saying that every Condo is privately owned. We have been here at this resort 2 times. I can say that Betty the manager is wonderful. We stayed in unit 202 this time. It was clean, updated, and wonderful. Both time's staying here was a great experience. Betty is wonderful and make's you feel welcomed.

we stayed in unti 603 for a week during our fall break. We had a great stay! We really liked the updated bathrooms and having a washer/dryer. The owners left an umbrella and beach chairs and other sand toys in the closet that we were able to use. The kitchen is fully stocked . The location is wonderful, Publix is... More

We have stayed at the Gulf Strand several times over the last 20 years and always like to stay in the gulf front (01 and 02) rooms. Highly recommend this resort for families or trips with friends! Love to sit on the balcony and have drinks and watch the sunset - perfect view from the balcony!

Dear Bill J, Thank you for your review of the Gulf Strand Resort. Upon doing some investigation, I have learned that the mattress in this condo is only one year old. We have scheduled for a mattress technician to come out and evaluate. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention and to all you nice words about the... More
