Great place to stay on the beach!

The condo was great overall. The office staff was very nice and accommodating. We arrived on a Sunday after the office closed so we called the number provided and was given a combination to unlock a lock box with our keys in it and then told to check in with the office in the morning. Super easy. The room was very clean. The kitchen had all the things needed to cook and clean up with. All we had to do was visist the Publixs across the street for groceries. We stayed in 304 and the balcony overlooked a public parking lot but the beach and the sunset could be seen from it as well. The only negative thing I can say about this room was that the bed was as hard as a rock. We stayed a week and the first few nights were tough. But all in all a great place to stay with only a few seconds walk to the beach.

Needs improvement

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
June 2012: We have stayed at the Gulf Strand 5 or 6 times over the last 7 or 8 years and each year it progressively gets more outdated and the units less clean. We aggressively requested a different unit (not #406 again)this go around, thinking that a different unit would be updated and cleaner and possibly have better beds - but no! The unit (#507) was extremely dirty and the second bed was impossibly to sleep in! You could not walk barefoot around without having dirty black feet. We killed what we are sure to be cockroaches and noticed Cockroach & Ant spray under the kitchen sink. It is very unfortunate because we love the area but we will not be staying at this property again! The units need to be thoroughly cleaned - professionally! and completely updated!

not as it seems

The photos shown are front gulf front condos, not gulf view condos. At check in we were informed that the gulf front condos were not actually available at the "'rack rate". Also, beware there is an extra "resort fee" per day that is due at check-in. The bedroom had 2 twin beds put together instead of a queen bed. Small pool.
