Great for a cut off weekend with greg beach.
The property is definitely a wonderful property with a lot of potential - the layout is great - love the pool and the beach was just wonderful - white sands and warm water. I thought that the service of the hotel staff was excellent. Food did not have a lot of variety and since its half or full board, you are stuck. I don't eat meat or chicken so it was quite a limited menu for me. The worst was the wifi. It nearly ever worked. Great place to stay fora few days totally disconnected - Important advice: if swimming at low tide in the ocean wear water slippers because there are lots more things that attack our feet and sharp edges. No warnings posted in Hotel.

Overpriced
Grounds are beautiful and they have great food. However, a place that charges 5 star prices (plus!) should not have peeling paint in the bathroom, very limited amounts of hot water (bathtub is useless), dirty curtains and pillows, and offer no little conveniences such as conditioner, mouthwash, etc. When we asked for a toothbrush, they told us to buy it at the shop across the road! They also do not go out of their way to help with extras such as late checkout...

Terrible
the staff was extremely rude, made us feel uncomfortable as the guards stood directly in front of my wife staring at her all day, everyday. The staff came into our room when we checked in to take the additional bottle of water out of the room despite having paid over $300 a night. They let the beach boys come up and harass everyone, and even took the liberty to overcharge us an additional day.

Mediocre
Waiters look at you with tons of attitude and contempt. If you're on the beach, no one will come by to offer you anything to drink. In fact, it's not even really all inclusive despite advertising as such. There are hidden extra charge drinks you'll never know about not being included until you check out. The place is also just generally not well kept compared to Hideaway. Empty bottles, brooms, buckets laying around feels more at home in a favela than a 5 star hotel. Gold is probably endowed with one of the better beaches of all Kendwa and Nungwi. It stretches along the entire width of the hotel property and doesn't lose it during high tide. But it's more than totally squandered with poorly managed relations with peddlers on the beach. They would come to about 5m from the deck chairs and all line up in front of you so that you have nowhere to look at when sitting down without making eye contact with one of them, at which point they will try to sell you the same thing every other peddler tries to sell you for the 10000th time. They're constantly drone and chat loudly and every 5 minutes will break from their conversation, holler at the guests to try to sell for the 10001st time. In the end, you're better off relaxing as far from the beach as possible to avoid the harassment or rest at the pool (defeating the whole point of going to a beach in the first place).

The hotel was really nice and the food and service were great. My only complaint is the TV did not work and the salesmen on the beach were annoying.
