Pool is yucky with overflowing human kiddies (lol). Screaming kids, loud parents that don't supervise them and drink beer in the pool and eat bags of chips in... More

stayed here using my timeshare week and loved it. The location was great it was in the center of everything several shopping malls nearby and easy to get too. It is about 20 min from South Beach just drive down Collins Ave. You could walk to a lot of shops. The room was good it was just your average room... More

I've been coming to the resort for the past 20+ years my mom is an owner. Throughout the years there has been changes for the best and worse. It's a hotel you would need to get used too. It's a bit old as it's been brought out by Trump only 2-3 years left before being demolished We own in building... More

So after 18 hours of driving to enjoy a beautiful, sunny Florida 4th of July vacation, we pulled into the Golden Strand. Our first impression of the property was older but still kept up. Then the house of horrors began. When still on the road we called ahead to let them know that we would arrive early. We were pleasantly... More

Golden strand is a bit odd since it is a time-share hotel, so you get some of the amenities of a hotel (front desk, fresh towels) but not others (desk is only open 7am-11pm, you have to trade your towels in, no toiletries in the bath). It is, however, excellently located, convenient to shopping, beach, a grocery store, and oh... More

We are staying at the Golden Strand Ocean Villa Resort for a week. We just checked in today and our villa smells horrible. At first we thought it was a gas leak or something, but as we've been here this evening we believe it is either a really strong solvent/cleaner, bug spray, exhaust of some kind or possibly a urinal...

What a wonderful surprise! After attending our daughter's graduation from University of Miami, we chose to extend our stay in the Miami area. We own RCI Timesharing and switched out our property for 2 rooms, one was a 2 bedroom unit and one was a studio. The 2 bedroom unit was so spacious, with 2 and half bathrooms, a full... More

Let me start with the positives: the location is good because you can easily walk to a few restaurants and to Publix (of course if you have a car it is even better, but it is not strictly necessary to have now, we did not and we did not miss one!). The beach is gorgeous. The pool is big. There... More

I loved this resort. Everything you need within walking distance from groceries to restaurants to shopping....No need to rent a car. We stayed in a studio which had lots of room. The beach was beautiful very clean and always a beach chair available. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. I will be back.
