We loved it here, well placed for the Yumbo Centre and the beach. We were originally given the wrong room (we had paid extra for a south facing room) this was TUI's fault not theirs .. and when brought to the attention of reception they were fantastic (Christina). They moved us the following morning (having needing to properly clean a room, covid and all that i guess) and they upgraded us to a higher floor. The rooms are lovely and big, huge shower, lovely little kitchen which has all you need. Free coffee (we didnt use). The pool area is fab, lots of sunbeds and always very clean and with it being adults only perfect. It was my hubby's birthday during our stay and they left a bottle of Rose fizz in our room which was a lovely thought. Always a cheery hello and good evening from the staff and always asking if everything was ok. We ate at the restaurant underneath La Palmera Sur, do not miss this place, the food was amazing and was by far the best we had all week (separate review on TA) .

We have been to GC many times and generally stay at a gay resort, but you often pay a premium for this and it doesn’t always deliver on quality. We chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and as we booked through Tui and not independently as we often have in the past. We were not disappointed. Great as adults only and in an excellent location- close to prom down to the beach and a block away from the Yumbo. Excellent rooms, with amazing showers and little kitchens. 2 pools, lots of sun beds and great roof terrace with hot tub, where we spend at least some time every day. Slightly annoying that people “reserved” sun beds with towels and then hardly used them, but guess this happens every where. Breakfast was good , if a little repetitive every day. Hot items were made to order, with great omelettes made. A few days in some hot items were added to buffet, but they were a bit odd- carrots and marrow amongst the hash browns and Frittatas, and they weren’t really very warm as no one was really eating it, so there seemed to be little turnover. Will happily stay again- all the staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you!

Stayed here twice, both times during the Covid pandemic. First time in June 2020 and the second time in May 2021. Both times it was a great experience. The hotel style is very unique and staff / service very good. Location is convenient near Yumbo and the hotel pools are very inviting. I do wonder how crowded the pools can get when there is no pandemic. Rooms are very stylish and have everything you need. I must add that we stayed in suites, never in a standard room. Would recommend staying here!

This was our 2nd time at Gold. We were lucky enough to stay here a year ago during the start of the autumn lockdown so at that time the hotel & island was very quiet. This time around it was much busier but we still had a fantastic relaxing 10 days. I have been visiting the island for over 30 years and have stayed at some very mediocre hotels during this time. Gold is different in many ways. The hotel is well designed and nicely decorated, the rooms all nicely finished. The staff in all areas of the hotel are very polite, efficient and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble . The place is also kept very clean with great attention paid to the cleanliness at the pool area everyday. The breakfast is good and has a lot of choice. We ate several times at the pool bar and the food is well prepared and good quality. The location is also great for those who want to be at the centre of everything. The hotel is aimed more towards a younger market but there are all ages staying here. We are definitely well past our clubbing days but the one thing I really like is that the staff treat everyone with the greatest of respect. I thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone and we will definitely return again in the winter.

Lovely adults only hotel The hotel design is well thought out and every area is very aesthetically pleasing. All the staff from reception, catering, cleaning and maintenance were friendly and approachable. The food served in the restaurant for breakfast and lunch was excellent and well presented. I particularly liked the resident DJ who played by the pool on a Sunday afternoon, the music was not intrusive and was a nice touch. The jacuzzi was nice but was not easy to get into as some people stayed in a little too long when they got in and didn’t share with others. There are plenty of sun beds and lounging areas by the pool. It is next to a supermarket and about 10 minute walk to the beach in one direction and 10 minutes to evening entertainment in the other direction I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return for another stay.
