The Lowdown

Land, sea, city and convenience combine at the four-star Golden Tulip Zanzibar Resort, an oceanfront Tanzanian gem with quick and easy access to Stone Town, Zanzibar International Airport and an expansive verdant landscape, further inland.
Situated in the village of Kibweni on Zanzibar’s west coast, this property brings plenty comfort, peace and quiet to the table. Spacious guest rooms and suites come with splendid beach, city or ocean views, while a sea-facing outdoor pool and deck make sun-soaked relaxing a particularly easy task. Hungry stomachs will find respite in the form of buffet and à la carte options at the restaurant, while two lounges offer refreshments and shisha sessions with – you guessed it – even more amazing sea views.
For a change of scenery take the 11-minute drive south to Zanzibar City and its Stone Town, where the Old Fort of Zanzibar, Sultan’s Palace and far-reaching vistas from Forodhani Gardens are all worth adding to your checklist. Jozani Forest is no more than an hour’s drive away, and nature lovers will easily find their slice of happiness on a guided eco-tour of this 6,207-acre expanse, taking in local flora and fauna – look out for the rare red colobus monkey, bush babies and plenty butterfly species.

We spent 4 nights in the hotel, the hotel is good but the location is bad. half an hour drive to town. you have nothing around the hotel, just a small market. the food at the hotel is good but also expensive. The rooms are very nice and everything is clean. The staff is friendly. The biggest complaint is that the hotel does not have any access to the beach, it only has a swimming pool. there were huge bugs in the pool the first day, a security guy killed them with a slipper and said they knew sometime to be dangerous. If you come to the hotel take the room by the sea, ours was towards the city, in front of the mosque and prayers start at 5am, very loud

it is not resort it is Just a normal hotel

The reason to give only two points . Is that there is no efficiency in service I booked for 3 male adults and only 2 beds were provided Also does not have resort services. It does not deserve this description (resort)

Maravilhasa experiancia. :)

Muy relajante hotel con modern ambiente. 
Gustei mucho. ;) No como este “Hermana hotel" Golden Tulip Boutique en 5 kilómetros, que es horrible.

The rooms are big with flat screen TV with nice working satellite channels. The breakfast was really great.

The pool is big enough. Honest and nice feeling staff.

Very marvelous experience, will return if ever here again.
