Great beach location.

3 out of 5
by from Boston
Posted Feb 23, 2017
Pros: Proximity to beach.
Cons: Remodeling, update facilities.
Location: Resort is right on the beach. Every thing you might need is in walking distance. It is also on the bus line which makes it easy to get around.
Make sure you get a room facing the beach, otherwise you are looking at the street. It was a satisfactory stay if you plan to be out of the room more than in as the rooms are aged.

I have stayed at the Golden Strand about 5-6 times. Always loved the place, definitely not a 5 star hotel but always clean and pleasent. I have not been there since 2013 about, the room was so run down, mattress was gross and ripped, shower had no pressure whatsoever and you couldn't even control the water temperature. Sliding doors to balcony were extremely difficult to open, pool and beach accommodations were just ok ( workers in charge of cushions and umbrellas were not nice) overall disappoint and should prob call my Amex to get my money back

Dear Guest(s), Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. It is disappointing to hear that the room was not up to the standards that we have set for ourselves. I wish you would have sent a message through real-time feedback expedia or notified the front desk of these issues while you were staying at the resort. I could have changed your mattress to a brand new one, and the maintenance issues would have been fixed. We will work hard to ensure that errors such as this do not occur in the future. Thank you and we hope that you will give us another chance to prove to you that we can do better. Karlene

Killed 3 large cockroaches in 4 days

The location was good and the staff did its best to make our stay pleasant but I believe that having to kill 3 large cockroaches over a 4-day period is telling of the condition of the place, hence the chosen title.

Shabby old smelly

Posted Jan 2, 2017
Pros: Nice pool and beach.
Cons: Renovate and refurbish and allow refunds ...
Location: Timo is a good restaurant nearby
The rooms smell and are old. When I took a shower - dozens of tiny ants crawled up the wall into a hole adjacent to the shower head. I begged for a refund and wouldn't sleep there. Caveat emptor - stay away! Also no bellman, no beach service. This place sucks.

Nice hotel in a good location

3 out of 5
Posted Dec 31, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Teach your staff to respect the customer.
While the hotel looks old, it is well maintained, its location is really good, 20min from the art deco, walkable, minutes from supermarket/restaurant. The sofa bed may need an update, but apart from that the amenities in the appartement are great. Overall we liked the place if it wasn't for the beach staff or cleaning staff to be far from what you would expect. Comments and attitude towards customers of beach staff were rude and not friendly.

Rundown and outdated

I had a TERRIBLE STAY at this hotel. The only other people on the floor were a bunch of guys that kept us up all night yelling and screaming!!! They were slamming doors and smoking marijuana and the odor was coming down the hall. At one point I thought they had shot a gun in the wee hours of the morning!!! SCARED ME TO DEATH ALMOST. I GUESS IT WAS THEM CONSTANTLY SLAMMING THE DOOR! I WILL NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN!!!!

Stayed two nights in a spacious first floor 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, with open living room and kitchen unit. The room was very clean. On site restaurant was very good. Other restaurants and grocery store within walking distance.

The only problem is that nearby buildings make hotel beach be in shadow for good part of the day.
