A beautiful and modern resort, with amazing staff and great pool. I had forgotten my ring in the safe there....they have been very kind to contact me and are making arrangements to send it to back. Definitely appreciate the staff making the afford. A little expensive, but worth it for that special holiday, especially the all inclusive package.

We stayed in this hotel as a couple about 2 months ago. When we arrived at the Reception, nobody really took care of us and they wanted to be free again very quickly. Therefore, you arrive in a huge place and the receptionist just brought us directly to the room. We had to ask to have a quick orientation of... More

Gold Beach is in a beautiful location on the best beach on the island and offers some very picturesque views. It is a small hotel but with extensive grounds there is plenty of room - and plenty of sunbeds, cabanas etc to relax in. After several days of safari we were looking forward to a relaxing week - and that... More

We spent our final four days at the resort following 3 weeks touring Tanzania and Uganda. Our room was a delux beach front unit (505) which had a deck and private cabana that lead straight to the pool and pool bar & restaurant. We had the half board package which meant that breakfast and dinner was included however lunch was... More

My husband and I just returned from staying at the Gold Zanzibar last week. The review from Maja63 is spot on and seemed to mirror a lot of our thoughts! Check In: We arrived at the hotel at approx. 9pm. Check in was swift and they made sure we made it for dinner - apparently the cut off time to... More

This is a hotel which looks - by and large - just like the brochure. The beach, the pool and the rooms are just what we expected, perhaps even better. As other reviewers have said, this is a fairly large hotel and is located on a slope. This means that if your room is located at the top end of... More

The beach BBQ is very well presented and the catering is of a very good standard with much variety and options. The all inclusive package has plenty... More

My room was nice but when paying... More

The hotel facilities are spotless. We were greeted with delicious, ice cold fresh watermelon juice. The restuarant entertainment during dinner time was outstanding. Only thing that annoyed me was when I was ordering my drink before bedtime, the barman waited a good 3min till cutoff time (all inclusive guest can order anything from only 11am-11pm) to ring the drink and...
