Superb 9.0 From 80 reviews

Poor 2.0
Dirty, poor service and not worth price
Welcome to the 2 star hotel with 5 star price. It includes all you can drink instant coffee, a welcome foot massage to relive you from your long journey on day 5 and lobster and crab severed with rubber gloves. This place could not be more distant from a 5 star hotel. The all inclusive menu is somewhat limited and anything worth drinking is excluded from the menu. The watery drinks are to be expected in an all inclusive but instant coffee at breakfast was really a push! The systems at the hotel make you sign a nil bill everytime you order an all inclusive drink. We were asked constantly for our room number and fed paper after paper. The bar advertises a zero plastic straw policy however drink after drink was severed with plastic staws. I visited the spa on the 2nd day to unwind, and despite having no room for my welcome leg massage they managed to squeeze me in between their empty roister for a back neck and shoulder massage. I was patted like a cat and had a couple of creams rubbed in my back but nothing to remove the knots. Book elsewhere!

Gold Zanzibar with a large group
Everything about this hotel was amazing except because we travelled with old people and although we requested rooms on the ground floor the walk to and from the beach and dining area is very steep. It would be nice if they introduced golf buggies like they do at other hotels to drive guests around the hotel premises. If you are travelling in a group be sure to let hotel know in advance you would like rooms next to each other as we were put really far away from each other. Food and variety was amazing though Rooms were comfortable Service was excellent Hotel staff were amazingly helpful and hospitable

Excellent hotel but not 5 star due to service
Hotel is amazing we were mis guided with the suits with Pavillion on the beach. Its not on the beach its overlooking the swimming pool. Only the villa are at the beach and can see the sea. The location is excellent clean beaches and clear blue water it's the best beach in Africa . Wide sand beach and blue waters and very private and good crowd. Not crowded beach and very relaxing It's a beach resort and the open restaurant is very uncomfortable during summer and when we visited. Its get very humid and hot and unpleasant. And very limted ceiling fans. This restaurants needs big commercial fans in every corner. We were sweating while eating and wanting to rush out of the restaurant as it was just hot to eat and enjoy. You need to get professional install mist sprays in the full perimeter where it's open and install commercial fans in all pillars so there is cool breeze throughout. Since it's open fully aircon won't work. I would never choose full board or half board if all meals will be served in the super hot restaurant. I'd rather go next door where they got aircon rooms and comfortable restaurants. The TV system is extremely hard to use and we never got it right in our stay and got the guys to show us how it works but we gave up finally to call them again and never watched tv since then. Last day our flight was was at 10 so checked out at 6am and we requested breakfast to be packed for us but no one did it and we wasted 15 mins for very cold and stale croissants

Fantastisk strand i avslappnad miljö
Rymliga och rena rum med fri minibar för alla med all-inclusive, som fylldes på en gång om dagen. Mycket fin strand, dock ingen snorkling i närheten av hotellet.
