People often make the mistake the the GS is a hotel, it's a condo/timeshare...a home away from home. Excellent staff, super clean and the best ocean front in N. Miami. Depending on the unit you get/pay for varies in ratings. Studios vary in size and depending on the building you get makes your vacation a plus. Remember it's your house... More

Staying at the Golden Strand was our last night of a 8-night trip to the Keys. We made reservations hours before we checked in and were super suprised that we got such an awesome rate: $129 for a studio. After parking and taxes, that ended up around $170. This is a fabulous rate for the area especially when considering the... More

This hotel certainly isn't the newest or the largest on the beach but they have made many improvements to the property. We stayed the week of Thanksgiving and checked in late, as noted with previous reviews the locks are faulty on our unit and took many tries to open with our key, This is an improvement they need to make...

This place is better than the highly negative reviews here make out... I think those people must be used to extremely high standards or had a bad time here for some reason. We inherited a week here thanks to my aunt and uncle swapping a timeshare for us, and we were really scared about coming here, but we were pleasantly... More

Experienced a wonderful week in Sunny Isles last month. Staying at the Golden Strand you are close to Fort Lauderdale or South Beach. It is a relaxing place to spend a week at the beach. Shopping and restaurants are close by. There are also wonderful malls in the nearby area. I give it a thunb's up!

The resort had all water shut off for most of one day. The bed mattresses were horrible to sleep in. The unit I stayed in had ants in the kitchen. It also had an ocean view that was obstructed by trees and plants, and the dominating sound of air conditioning units so that you could not hear the ocean. Had... More

Overall, the resort is really nice... had we had a different room. I mean, it is nothing compared to the Trump Palace next door, but hey. To begin, our room was horrible. We walked in to a room that wasn't even the size of a typical hotel room. This is listed on their website as "Efficiency 1G". The kitchen was... More

We stayed for a week in a 2 Bedroom in Building 1 with our 3 adult children. The unit was comfortable and well equiped. The beach and pool were fabulous. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The location is great. Would definitely return.

We stayed at the resort for one week and loved it.' I don't know what other people are saying about staff but we found them very friendly and accommodating. This is a place to relax and take it easy. Great rooms, great food and great facility . We would definitely go back . Loved it. Randy Canada
