We visited Gold Zanzibar in June 2016 for our honeymoon and it was the most spectacular experience! We were served a buffet most of the time and had a wide range of cuisine to choose from. All the food was super fresh including freshly squeezed fruit juices. Our room was clean and well presented. We spent a lot of time...

The resort has a very beautiful and big beach. The beach sand is very fine and snow white. The sea water is turquoise blue, very clear and calm. Amazing swimming pools, big and beautiful. Very nice place to bring small kids. The restaurant food is not the best but good enough. Kids liked the most spaghetti that an italian cook...

When I travel to other parts of the world, I hope to experience the culture, food and people. If I was to have only stayed at the hotel I could have saved myself the time to travel this far and the money. This resort, while lovely, is like any other resort in the world. I could be in Florida, Hawaii,...

This was our second stay at this enchanting resort in this beautiful lagoon, and the entire week was perfect. The Hotel is beautifully situated on a long and deep beach that does not suffer from the "evil" effects of the high and low tides. The sand is cool and soft, well cleaned, the beach beds are comfy and sturdy. The...
