First of all I would like to calm down some reviewer. You are critizing that w-lan is not powerful enough or that breakfast isn't 5stars like ?! Come on, please come yourself back to earth. You are making vacation in a developing country - I feel ashamed by reading those comments. By the way the breakfast is very delicious and... More

It is a beautiful hotel but not very impressive service. -Housekeeping is always late and not that clean. We had a problem with plumbing and hot water can finish after 10 minutes. They said hot water is a precious thing in Zanzibar. -Open buffet is standard like typical all inclusive hotels. -I had also an unpleasant experience: 100 dollars in... More

Gold Zanzibar provides a very good service and relaxation after our long safari in Tanzania. Beautiful pool and white sand beach but unfortunately we didn't anticipate that it is very cold in Zanzibar during second week of July. We didn't really enjoy the beautiful swimming pool neither the white sand beach because of the weather. We just had an amazing... More

Hello fellow travellers! My partner and I headed to Zanzibar in June 2015. We were booked in at the Gold Zanzibar Beach House & Spa and honestly, what a gem! We opted for the 'All inclusive' travel package, which blew our minds! We couldn't believe the quality of drinks offered from the spirits to the wines, the cocktails to the... More

We stayed at Gold Zanzibar for 7 days for our honeymoon and were spoilt rotten by the staff. The spoils included champagne, and fresh fruit baskets, a romantic dinner on the beach and the best couples massages imaginable. The room was fantastic and the food as well. We found that the service at the top bar far exceeds the service... More
