lovely place to stay but we booked from england and when we arrived found out we pay for parking at the place, a lot of staff had trouble understanding english, but no fault to them i had trouble understanding spanish i think. when we booked it was for 5 adults but due to the bad weather before we arrived in October we had to be separated in to 2 apartment which ment 3 adults shared a room, which is not we expected mentioned it to the desk all they could say was we were upgraded ? . when checked out we had to pay adminity charges of 80 dollars per room plus 20 dollars for parking, and guess what the room was wiped over once in the week no change of bedding,this has put me off Miami. some staff were great but i wont be returning there.

Beware and Be Aware: if you decide to stay here, be aware (1) you are not on the beach. (2) Also, if you want to party hardy then this is the place for you. (3) Furthermore, if you decide to cancel your reservation… We’ll, Good Luck to you! You will never hear back from this place again! And I mean NEVER.

We came here to stay after a cruise and the strip that this hotel is on, is so incredibly noisy and (Mardi Gras like) partying atmospheric, that we decided it was not for us as we were too tired. We were looking forward to just relaxing on the beach. Wrong! The pictures online make it look as if you were going to be directly on the beach, but you are not. In fact, the hotel is located down a narrow little alley about a block and a half from the beach, above a very busy, noisy, party atmosphere restaurant. It’s a bit difficult to find as you have to go down an alley between buildings (and tons of partying people) to find a little tiny lobby.

I came to check in about 1:30 (after circling around for an hour in cruising traffic and unmarked addresses) and the girl told me the room wouldn’t be ready till about 4:00 PM. I asked her if the noise ever winds down and she just gave me a look… “Well”, she answered, probably not. I asked her about their cancellation policy. She said if I canceled I’d have to pay for tonight but I would be reimbursed for my next two nights. I decided to go ahead and forfeit my reservation. She… Stephanie at the front desk… Told me just to call in the next day and they would reimburse my card.

This was on November 26 (my checkout date was the 29th) and it is now December 17. I never have gotten a phone call back after leaving 3 voice mails And three messages through the front lobby where the receptionist assured me a manager would get back to me.

So if you decide to stay you better stay or you are out the money. If you look at the pictures just know that you are a block and a half or more from the beach. And don’t forget to squeeze through the alley to get to the lobby. It’s a little difficult to find.

The hotel is not bad - if it was a hotel. You need to take the towels to one booth to have fresh ones and take yourself your trash to the bin. Don’t expect to have your room cleaned. Clean it yourself.

I could afford that, no problem. The worst part was to receive a paper notice in the door that I was obligated to move to another room in the next 24 hours. Me, my wife and a 17 months sick baby.

We packed all our stuff, cleaned the room, washed the dishes. Someone showed up my door saying that I should leave immediately and take all my stuff to a storage, including all home made food of my baby.

After some small discussion with the front desk, they allowed me to stay in the same room (!!!!!). So they ruined my and my family humor, made us to lose more than 4 hours to nothing. Treated us like clowns.

The person of the front desk was polite and did his best to solve the situation. But the damage was done.

Two hours passed since the confusion, and I am having to take my trash out because nobody appeared. Sanction?

For the same price or a little more, you can find better options. So please consider my experience.

If you google the name of the hotel, people are saying that part of the hotel has been sold. Maybe is a clue of why this such bad service.

Definitely will not stay here again, and will advice to all my friends.

We have been to the Golden Strand a number of times over the years. The property has been sold and a new high rise will be going up in its place.

The Golden Strand was a little low rise oasis. The operative word is "was".

Now, i believe because they are a lame duck property maintenance is lagging.Screens are torn, metal is rusting, lights don't work, staff is RUDE.

I have travelled a lot, muck of it in the tropics. I can honesltly say I have never encountered as many cockrioaches in my unit ever.

After three days they did have someone come in and spray but that onlky meant the the cockroaches we found after the spraying were now on their backs in the throws of dying.

The satff rsponse of course was that were are from Canada so we don't have this problem back home, it is normal for Floriday. Sorry, I know roaches are a fact of life in the tropics but well run properties have strategies to keep them at bay. The Golden Strand does not.

Too bad to see an elegant old dame of the beaches fall on such hard times.
