I stayed at The Golden Strand for business and will be back with my family. I found the beach and pool areas to be a highlight of this resort. The rooms although they do need some updating are clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. I noticed in other reviews people complain of parking and other fees...

The beach is beautiful, but the windows leaked in the rain and the furnitue was dated. Also charged an amenity fee of 10 per day and there were no amenities to speak of. It was a good trip, but we would look to stay somewhere else in the future.

Finding a timeshare location close to Miami City is not easy. This one is an exception, with large living and bedroom, big kitchen, balcony etc. The bathroom could be bigger, but has everything you need. The italian restaurant on the groundfloor is inexpensive and has excellent food. Many other good restaurants are within walking distance, supermarket and deli with fresh...

Okay call me picky but when I go to a timeshare resort I don't expect to be nickel and dimed to death with annoying little fees. And this is a timeshare, not a regular hotel so why all the little annoying fees? I usually travel in timeshares to avoid all this pettiness but unfortunately here at Golden strand you won't...

We are from South Carolina and this was our first vacation ever to South Florida. I knew I wanted to give my wife that Miami beach feel - but also make it family friendly which I suspect South Beach is not. I was a little concerned though because of the price we paid. This is my first time using my...

We recently did an RCI exchange for Miami and ended up at Golden Strand. At first after reading the reviews, we were concerned about the property but were very pleasantly surprised. Although the resort is a bit dated and surrounded by now high-riase condo developments, it is actually a very -well kept property. The beach was beautiful and the pool...

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...

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...
