Condo # 303 at Gulf Strand was the worst accommodations I have ever encountered. Very pleasant checkin after traveling thousands of miles. Walked into the room and the stink of an unclean condo burned my sense of smell. From the grease in the stove/oven to the stains on the sofa/walls to the smell of a dirty slept in bed (stink...

Cheryl F, Manager at Gulf Strand Resort, responded to this review

There was a mistake here, the unit that you were first in was unit 403, not 303. The photos you took were of 403. We did move you into another unit as soon as you notified us. Please know that unit 403 is schedules for major improvements. Thank you. More

Overall, resort was a great fit for what we needed as a family. 1 bdrm was small facing local beach access parking lot. It had 2 bathrooms which was nice, small balcony. We loved how many outdoor grilles they had down near the pool! The bathrooms near the pool were VERY clean! The unit needed updating and a deep cleaning.... 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 Bit outdated furnishings, including lots of silk floral arrangements.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!
