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.More
