My husband & I are here now at the Golden Strand. It is a very nice property and I was very pleasantly suprised on how nice our very large studio unit is. We have a great view of the ocean from a huge balcony and every amenity is here. The pool is nice and so is the beach area. No complaints!

This is our first visit to the North Miami area and we are very impressed with everything except for the amount of traffic. We are from Chicago and it's similar to rush hour all of the time. There is a lot to do and shop for within walking distance here. The parking is tight, but we were able to find a spot each time we needed one.

We did eat at the Tiki Bar for their Happy Hour special when we arrived and it was just about as awful as food could be - so avoid that. My husband ordered the Cuban sandwich and it was served on a hot dog bun!

Fortunately, the weather has been really good this week. We are going to walk next door to the Trump International - just out of curiosity - to get a drink. It is definitely a monstrosity next door.

Although surrounded by two higher-end properties, the Golden Strand holds its own. The staff is very responsive and helpful. The location and beach were very good with restaurants and Publix within walking distance. If you want to go beyond the area, major car rental offices are across the street. The beach is nicer than South Beach with smaller waves and softer sand. I am still puzzelled by the bad pollution habits of some visitors. If you prefer a pool, the property has a nice large pool. At night its usually quite. The interior is spacious, clean, and relatively new with a full kitchen. A beach home away from home.

As an owner of this place here are my reviews:
Rooms = excellent locations
Furniture= need new ones
Beach =excellent
Pool= excellent
Spa=None by the pool
Amenities=Very poor,charging owners for a parking fee with no assign parking for the room,charging owners for beach chairs,beach umbrellas (these charges should be past on to visitors or RCI exchange members but not to owners) Don't bite the hand that feeds you,this is mine philosophy.

Room Tip: Stay at a Villa or in Building one with 2 bedrroms 2 1/2 bath and two balconies.

This place is nice but is in need of an update! The beach area and pool are nice...the rooms are a different story. We rented a one bedroom villa which was a nice size but when I went onto the balcony area, they had the a.c. unit on the balcony and all the WIRES WERE EXPOSED!! SOOO DANGEROUS!! I absoultely refused to stay in that room and so they switched us to a different one bedroom. Other than that we had a nice stay but probably won't return...I would never pay the prices they are asking to stay here again!

One star for the beach. Nothing for the dirty rooms and housekeepers with attitude. Nothing for the poor elevators. Nothing for the atrocious lack of parking. EVERYTHING is way overpriced for this rundown roach motel. What a disappointing ripoff.
