Golden Strand Sunny Isles

Has anyone stayed here recently in a 1 bedroom? We are staying there in October through an RCI exchange-have seen a lot of bad reviews recently. Thx

We stayed theer twice, both times in a studio. A lot depends upon the building you will be in. There are six buildings plus 12 villa units. Some buildings offer excellent views of the pool and ocean, others not so good.

See link for rules -restrictions -fees.

Pool area is nice, directly off the beach - there is a restaurant, fitness center /spa/members lounge.

Many restaurants along Collins Avenue - Publix food market is five blocks north on Collins Ave,

Good bus service and free shuttle provided by the city of Sunny Isles Beach.

We just got back from a week (10/6-13) at Golden Strand.

In case you are about to visit later this month, be aware that building 3 & 4 are under renovations and it can be noisy from time to time. The better buildings are 1 & 2 and of course the villas.

Thank you for the replies. We will be there next week. I have read that timeshare members do not get a say as to what building they will be in - so hoping for the best. We are supposed to be in a 1 bedroom.

Hope you had good weather-looks like it has continued to rain in that area.

We are optimistic-hoping for a clean, nice room with a decent view!

Take care

NOTES:

1) Resort fee of $10.00 per day. Some benefits include washer/dryer use, computers in members lounge, wi-fi.

2) Pool towels are inside the unit, change them at housekeeping located next to security near the main gate.

3) Ask for the code number to access the beach area and return to the property.

4) Resturant / bar on site at the pool.

5) Maid service costs extra except for daily trash removal

6) Parking lot fills up fast, additional parking available across the street behing Tony Roma's restaurant - inconvient as you have to walk to the nearest intersection to cross the street unless you're daring.

7) Many restaurants along Collins Ave, banks, Publix market, McDonalds, KFC, BK, Denny's, etc.and more upscale dining.

8) Good bus service, "E", "S", "120" all go to Aventure Mall, "S" & "120" go downtown, "E" goes to Gulf Stream Race tract / Casino..

9) Free Sunny Isles Shuttle Bus.

Enjoy!!

The resort really was very nice! We had a room on the ground floor directly facing the ocean. It was a 1 bedroom. Very clean. Everyone was very nice. I posted a review and have even since answered someone else's questions about the place who is going there next week.

We did have to leave early, however due to Hurricane Sandy. It was so windy and by Wednesday the wind was almost unbearable. Hard to just sit out and relax. We hopped on a plane home Thursday morning-it pretty much rained from Wednesday night on until Saturday.

Thank you for asking :)
