We checked in and had a great location with a large window that looked straight out to the pool and the ocean. The room was a little dated, but that was fine, I understand that the Strand will be closing after February 2016. The restaurant was fine, but there are better restaurants within walking distance of the site. The bar... More

Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Room was very clean and kitchen area great. Like the extra bedsheets and beach towels provided in room. The only complaint was the noisy tourists at pool late at night...whom made it difficult to sleep. Many restaurants and stores nearby. Beachfront property including beach loungers and umbrellas was awesome. Italian resto on site was... More

Has a nice italian restaurant, groceries stores and all type of restaurants within walking distance. The units are ok most of them with ocean view. They provide you with... More

Me and my wife visited GSOVR last summer. Everything was great!Room service, staff, ocean view. A littile bit small and simple appartment, but we are the travellers that stay in room number only at night just for sleeping. So this is not big problem for us. Location is fantastic. Marshalls, Publix, a lot of fast food points near by, pretty... More

Beachfront, clean rooms, secure parking and friendly staff. Beautiful white beaches and walking distance to restaurant and grocery. Scheduled tours pickup at the hotel lobby. Not noisy at all and a family friendly atmosphere.

And...parking is extra And challange to find. To be fair,though...the last timtime,we had an fantastic place/room!! But again...to me,the best is the location- right on the beach! The beach chairs...

After checking in and getting ready to head to the beach and pool, we realized our door wouldn't lock. We had to contact maintanence and they quickly came to replace the locks. Although... More

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
