Gold Zanzibar Beach House and Spa Hotel
I booked this hotel for 3 nights i paid R17000 for my son who had a 21st birthday and chose to visit Zanzibar as his present with his friend,i booked for the two of them unfortunately on check in desk SAA at OR Tambo they didnt allow my son's friend because her passport had 106 days before expiry,and they cited that Tanzania will give him problems if his passport was valid for less than 6 months,so they both stayed i contacted the hotel through email to change the dates they refused,i didnt want any refund just to change dates even for the following nights they refused I ended up changing flights dates and paid more for a trip to Victoria Falls and paid again for accommodation. My children went and enjoyed in Vic Falls using the same passports. i would not recommend anyone to book this hotel in Zanzibar they took my hard earned R17000 for free
Nice, but too expensive for what you get ”
All in all a nice place, but the food you order in the beach bar is the way overpriced compared to what you get. And it took a long time to get simple food. The buffe is very nice! but all 10 of us got stomach problems even the person who lives in Zanzibar. They have a day schedule for activeties, but no staff came when one of us wanted to exercise in the morning at the set up time. Also the luggage was not moved from one room to another as promised. All this I would not think of as a problem, but because they claim to be a 5 star hotel I expect more.
the best resting vacation ever- unforgatable”
we stayed 12 days in this best located hotel in Zanzibar- it i the only place were the tide is never preventing a good swim. the food in the hotel is the best- a lot of variety fro all types - fisg meat and veg. we had half board and enjoyed the restaurants around in other hotels but the gold zanzibar has the best food. the beach is amazing the beds on the beach for the guests are perfect for relaxing hours on the beach. not so much to do in around - we took the swimming with dolphins tour with the guys on the beach -they all work together so dont be troubled - they are to be trusted. We also rented a catamaran per hour and it is a great way to see the coast
Overpriced getaway ”
Hotel facility includes airport transfer however the hotel is charging 100$ per one way, from our previous experience with other hotels, the charges are applicable only if the airport transfer is not a part of the hotel facilities(but could be provided upon request). The room had always a damp smell therefore all our clothes smelled. There was no chance to have food served between 5-8pm, the kitchen was closed so when we came from a day trip we had to wait till dinner time which is not very convenient. The hotel offers excursions/ trips however the guy in charge was not found at his desk (two different occasions), we ended up organising our trips with local guys offering services outside the hotel. Generally, we were disappointed to have this experience in a hotel classifies/ rated as one of the best in the world. It has still wayyy to improve in order to achieve that. The landscape is beautiful, easy access to beach, amazing sea, tasty food for dinner but even small things/ attention to details will make a difference which was lacked in this case. We live in the UAE and the expectations and standards in good hotels are high; this one was just an average to us.
Great overall experience, will recommend.”
Our stay was great, the location of the hotel is the best due to the ONLY wide beach in Zanzibar (check on google maps and you'l understand) - Kendwa beach. I don't know why people complain about the service, the staff was fast and proffesional, is was great! :) at first i was a bit affraid about the service due to some comments I saw online, but it was beyond our expectations :) Definitly the best and biggest hotel I've ever been to.
We had a great three days, spending time mainly on the beach and in the pool. We took long walks on the beach and we also went on a nice one day sorkling trip. The breakfast was super and the dinners were great. The room was clean and wonderful.
high end resort with ok service”
The resort has mix reviews on the internet, and I actually feel the same way. Great food, amazing chef, great facilities and great room. The service was inconsistent. Reception unfriendly, F&B staff slow, and you generally don't get the feeling that management and staff are there to help you out. I once ask for a manager but was never able to talk to him/her. When it happened, I was leaving the resort the next day and my concern seems moot already, so I let it pass. But that just goes to show the level of service they provide. Also, souvenier shop is not connected to the hotel bill and only accepts cash. Future guests should take note of that.
The beach which hotal has very quality sand, but.... - Even we booked half-board, no drink is free at dinner, even water. They don't put water, you must pay anything you drink extra. But drinking is part of eating. Do hotels charge extra for tea or coffee at breakfast? no. So why they charge here? - All prices are in Euros. God knows why. Mojito: 9 Euros (12 USD), salad at the beach is 16 Euros (22 USD). - The breakfast finishes at 9.30 -- I saw stuff taking all breakfast from tables back to kitchen, i checked my phone, it was 09.26!! very early.. The dinner begins at 20.00!! very late.. the sunset is at 18.30 in this country. So, everything is set very professionally to take the most out of customer, to make them feel hungry during the day and take money, which made me feel quite uncomfortable! This is more than what i can call to be fair. I will not visit them again, just because of this attitude.
On of my best holidays!!
marvelous and money worth spent”
It was just a perfect 2nd honeymoon for my husband and I.if there are two areas that needs improvements,it will be upgrading the gym equipments,providing guest towels and make sure there are water available for guests to drink in the gym.I went to the spa and I didn't enjoy the massage at all. Apart from that,everything was heavenly perfect for a great honeymoon or holiday gateaway.
Excellent Hotel - Very enjoyable”
I had a very enjoyable time at the Gold Zanzibar - so much so I extended my stay for another 6 days. My stayed was during March 2014 - I booked a Deluxe Garden View room (Half Board) The room size was more than enough for 1 person - with it's own luggage area and bathroom complete with shower and bath (and bidet if you require!). The room was clean - bed fitted with mosquito net - a member of staff would come around evening to check and spray for mosquitos. With half board it meant a buffet breakfast and buffet evening meal was included with the booking. Breakfast - Eggs, bacon, beans, potatoes, cereals, fruit juices, fruit and assorted European & local pastries. Evening meal - Many different barbecued meats (beef, chicken, lamb etc) & seafood (prawns, octopus, calamari, salad, curries, dessert, fruit and they had their own in-house Italian Pasta Chef. Dinner was served in the restaurant but on a few occasions served around the pool area or beach. When by the pool or beach there was a show put on by the local entertainers and dancers. Soft drinks, beer and wine for dinner you had to pay for separately. Staff were excellent - very friendly. Special mention to the waiters and waitresses who were top notch. There is a private beach - where you can relax on the sun loungers without getting hassle from the local beach boys/women selling their wares. Depending on the tide you can walk over to the next beach, Nungwi. Nice pool (salt water)and 2 bars with sports channels should you decide you want to watch the football. If you fancy a game of football then there's a pick up game on the beach everyday for a hour-or-so before the sun goes down. I would highly recommend this hotel. One very very minor point. The hotel has it's own in-house TV system which showed a number of news channels (BBC, CNN, Sky News) and then a number of UAE and (strangely) Egyptian channels. So take a few books or some sort of electronic tablet for your own entertainment. 10/10
Tres bien formidable et inoubliable j y retournerais avec plaisir
Séjour très agréable dans un cadre magnifique”
Check in rapide et efficace. l'ensemble du personnel est au petit soin. L'hotel est récent (1 an).Très beau jardin & piscine. Petite structure (150 clients). Très propre. La cuisine est bonne et variée, mais pourrait être un cran au dessus au regard des 5*. Peu d'animation.
המלון הכי טוב בזנזיבר בוודאות!”
המלון הכי טוב בזנזיבר, אחרי הרבה בדיקות. הגענו לירח דבש, לקחנו חבילה של הכל כלול (לא חובה לקחת). איך שמגיעים למלון מבינים לאן נכנסים, חדרים מדהימים, צוות מעולה, בריכה ענקית וחוף לבן ויפה. מומלץ בחום לכולם
מלון מצויין. בריכה נהדרת, קרבה לחוף הים
