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

The ONLY thing that this resort has going for it is location. Close enough to Fort Lauderdale and Miami beach and not too far from the airport (18 miles). However it is one of the few low rise resorts yet to be redeveloped and it's rather tired and lack lustre appearance show that it's redevelopment is long overdue. Facilities are... More

We are RCI members who stayed here ten years ago. The first time they stuck us in a studio that was in a run down area in back. I had brought crab legs that didn't fit in the under counter refrigerator. The front desk said sorry, no other rooms available. A call to RCI got us into a great unit... More

The resort is the only one around that does not make a big shadow in the ocean in the afternoon (because the hotels are so big). We stayed at the 5th floor in a one bedroom unit. It was clean when we arrived. We had a nice view, and the neighbours were quiet. The area is nice, there is a... More

Although the resort is a little dated, it was a great stay. We are local and frequent the south Florida beaches. Those that choose a beach resort only for the room are missing out on a great deal. You can stay at either resort to the left or right Aqualina and Trump Int'l for 4 times the cost. The room... More
