I have been staying at this resort for over 20 years, since I was a baby. I love my stay everytime. :) Definitely a great place to enjoy as a couple or as a family. Timeshare resort which means the guests staying are familiar and a family experience. Cant wait till next year!

I love this place!! Unfortunately modern high rises will soon give way to this "small" gem of a hotel. Ideally situated near major highways, this place continues to win. Ok look, this isn't a super huge, luxurious hotel. This is a place to go and disconnect from your daily life. The rooms aren't huge but are well appointed enough. Most... More

The room smells the utilities don't work properly at all, housekeeping is once a week for example if you use the towels you have to wash it yourself. There's alot of light switches but there's no lights, the only light it have is two lamps in each room that makes the lighting very poor. The people at the front desk... More

Dear Doransamai, Thank you for choosing the Golden Strand Resort. I am sorry to read you did not enjoy your stay. We are a timeshare resort and, as most timeshares, we only offer limited housekeeping service. Guests are welcomed to exchange their towels and sheets in our laundry at no cost and as often as they wish. I do see... More

So reminds me of old Miami, where families have been visiting for years. Very well thought out when built. Every balcony has privacy and you really feel you are somewhere a lot larger. The beach and hotel staff help you feel pampered. We decided to go to Tiki bar for a light lunch. Sorry didn't get bartenders name, he worked... More

Our room had,by far, the best views! We were in unit 2511 (bldg 2, unit 511); unobstructed views of the beach, ocean & palm trees! yes, the paint, furniture, floors, curtains are outdated, but the convenience & views certainly made up for it. This hotel was probably built in the 1950`s or 60`s, but its charm & location cannot be... More

Turns out the resort had been contacted by book it and told them YES!!! they would... More

To be sure, the property is a little dated, but then so am I. This was a most enjoyable stay, very roomy apartment with a full equipped kitchen and an great view of the Su rising out of the Atlantic. Excellent beach, decent exercise room, working WiFi, and a full size heated pool. Walking distance to many restaurants.
