We stayed at Gold during during June 2022 and they surpassed all of our expectations - from start to finish the service and attention to detail was impeccable. Gold really pride themselves on their food; there's plenty of options for all diets. We booked an ocean view room and it was definitely worth it, especially for the sunset views :) We couldn't recommend it more!

This hotel has the potential to be amazing. The property is a nice size (not too big or small) and the stretch of beach is lovely. This is sadly where the positives end. The garden view rooms are a nice size however dated. The bathroom didn't even have a door so there was zero privacy if travelling with friends. The shower looked like it was from an old persons home with a chair bolted to the wall and also badly maintained. The air conditioning was a tiny unit that was not in the center of the room and did not circulate cool air - we complained to be told it was working fine. Every night was sweaty and a struggle to sleep with basically a fan instead of AC. The restaurant was fine - standard resort buffet nothing special. Staff couldn't really be bothered - every breakfast I asked for water which the staff refused to bring and told me I had to go to the buffet and pour it myself. When I don't drink tea or coffee and require literally nothing else from them I feel like this is lazy. They would rather stand around chatting. Alcohol drinks were all served warm and not drinkable. The beach is lovely but only able to go early morning. By midday onwards it was impossible to walk 5 meters without being harassed by people wanting your money. Intimidating being a female travelling. The sellers are not allowed to approach your sunbed so they instead stand 10 meters away, stare at you for hours and shout at you whenever you stand up. There are far nicer hotels on the island - until this one gets a chance in management I would avoid.

The hotel itself is very clean and beautiful, the rooms are spacius and the staff is kind and friendly. However, there are a few things I’d like to point out. 1. There are nothing outside of the hotel, only poverty. No shops or restaurants. Inside the hotel area, there’s 2 restaurant, but only one available for all the guests (the other is for all-inclusive only). That restaurant is overpriced, as well as the bar. 2. Breakfast starts at 7:30am on paper, but in reality the staff only begins to cook the meals. Which is disappointing. Me and my family went to a trip one day, and the transfer came to pick us up at 8, so we figured we should go eat early. There was barely nothing ready. 3. The pool is filled with salty water… And i managed to cut my foot in it. 4. Well, this one’s not the hotels fault, but if you hate being “harrassed” all the time, don’t go to the beach. Local people come and try to sell you literally everything. There were of course good things as well, the coctails and the food was good. Every night there was some programme like parties, karaoke etc. Altogether, it was a nice adventure and a great relax time, but I don’t think that we would come back to thus hotel or even Zanzibar. It was a big disappointment.

Have to say we were unfortunately quite disapointed. The First feeling was not so good dirty And bad smelling toilets at reception, front desk staff wearing brouken uniform. All thecresort is big. Also rooms are auite big unfortunately litle bit oldfashioned. Best part is a beautifull Beach with a georgeous sea And really Very good food! I would say the standard of this hotel comparing with european hotels would be max 3☆

“‪I loved every bit of my stay at the Gold”‬ My boyfriend and I spent a week in Here. We had the most amazing time and I had a lovely 30th birthday - thanks for everything you did to make it a special day for me. The resort and beach is beautiful and relaxing. The food is unbelievable - we loved it! So much choice for vegetarians too! The staff really do make this resort what it is. They are hard working and go above and beyond with their customer service. Do TIP them!! . It’s a Italian owned hotel, and we should be giving back to the locals there who probably are on an extremely low wage in comparison to what you pay for your room. Would definitely come back to staye.

The Zanzibar of my dreams happened here, our first time in this magic Island, with the best beach and best resort facilities. Amazing food and entertainment, all our best memories were written here at Gold Zanzibar, where I got surprised with the best romantic dinner in my life. Special thanks for Tuan, and for every single member of the staff for making our stay super nice and beyond our expectations. Definitely we want to come back soon, it was for us the first African experience and we loved it too much!!!. The location is perfect to have some walks around and there are plenty of tour options from here, perfect snorkeling spots, even a small one just in the beach of the resort. And many wonderful islands, to see dolphins and colorful starfish is such a crystal water. Thanks Gold Zanzibar for such a wonderful African experience!!!
