The Gold Zanzibar is epic. This is my second trip to Zanzibar and I am so pleased we stayed here. The grounds are a sprawling estate with top quality room, a wonderful pool and a lot of eating a drinking options. Staff are friendly and the buffet is to die for. Couldn't be happier

The hotel was great. Although the weather forecast was kind of frightening with a lot of thunderstorms threats, most of the days were sunny. We traveled around the island and we believe this is the hotel with the best seashore by far. Large sand beach with the best sunbeds. The food is fine, but if you are used to eating...

I have stayed in 4 different hotels (2 x 4* and 2 x 5*) in Zanzibar and this is by FAR the BEST hotel i have been to. The setting is amazing, big wide open white sandy beaches with clear turquoise clean water. Best beach on the island. Swimming pool area is excellent, big spacious. The design of the place...

We loved the hotel! Clean, friendly and a beautiful area. We have to point out the high maintenance of the flowers (garden) at the resort. The colors and different types was amazing! All in all great service and good food at the buffet! We had a standard room but it was of great size! The beach was breathtaking! We had...

Beautiful resort, attention to details, super friendly staff... especially Anna (managing the resort) and Italian chef made it a memorable stay for our family. Welcome at the reception was stunning... view fantastic, you just don't want to leave. Loved the mix of modern and original/local architecture. Beach has all you need to relax, it's clean with crystal green water. First...

My colleague and I got insanely sick from lunch at this resort. Both of us had exactly the same symptoms an hour apart from each other. When we asked the hotel to reimburse us back the $ for food and drinks for TODAY, since we cant eat or drink anything other than water, they refused to. We didn't even ask...

We were there last week. Clean room, fresh food, friendly people but most of all the beach. Beautiful ocean with a direct access which is not the case of the hotel we stayed in last year. If the purpose of the trip is the beach, i definitely recommend Gold Zanzibar.

Take me back!! The beaches, the people, the HISTORY, I could go on for days! First off, I'm all for a discount. Who isn't, right?! The idea for this trip was to find something budget friendly for a family of four. My Budget with flights included was 2500 USD. Keep in mind we were flying from Abu Dhabi. I stumbled...
