We finished our one week stay on Jan 31, 2015. We had a villa with 2 BR, 2 Bath, full size kitchen, dining room table and a den. I was very nervous about the accommodations, because of what I had read on trip advisor and the net. There were many negative comments. Our experience was wonderful, as you will see... More

Great location, on the beach, convenient to shopping, the two bedroom apartment is very nice and spacious. It's perfect for a family. If you are looking for a luxury resort, this is not for you, it's simple and comfortable.

We spent 10 days there just recently, never had any issues all requests to the front desk where handled very professional. For people looking for a Donald Trump experience it is not for you, the property is well maintained and is a great location in the Sunny Islands area. I have stayed in better places and worse places.

We arrived at 11pm from Ohio with one toddler and one infant. I request a crib when I booked this "resort" with 3.7 stars rate and all I had is security guard who open the door and told us to comeback tomorrow to deal with everything . The place looks good in pictures only, but in reality it's the worst... More

After reading some of the other reviews I am now aware that the building has been sold and going to be torn downin a few years. This would explain the lack of maintenance in the rooms. The air conditioning thermostat would work properly so we had to manually keep turning it off and on and have the front and back... More

So my husband and I just got back from spending a week at the Golden Stand. We used my in-laws RCI timeshare points to book, so the hotel cost us about $400 for the week ($300 booking fee from RCI and $100 resort and parking fee from the Hotel). Had I paid a lot more than this I would probably... More
