As a family, we booked a few rooms to be close to where an event was happening. The staff worked hard to accommodate us in getting the desired room location. The lobby and grounds are beautiful. It has a nice pool, beautiful views, and a place to grab casual food like pizza. However, the rooms left a lot to be desired. Outdated systems and rooms. Complaints included poorly working toilets, uncomfortable beds, television not working, no hot water in the showers, etc. In fact, some of our party felt so uncomfortable with the circumstances and the failure to have them resolved, that they just went back home to sleep and took a loss for the room.

I feel choosing this Golden Tulip Dar was my worst mistakes in this holiday. [1]. The facility is not having all the amenities advertised, cleaning could be done better, old facility, not so good air in the rooms and above all, even watching TV was an issue. [2]. Poor breakfast: restricted to eating some cheap food that does not resonate with the price paid. [3]. No value for money: I feel the price they made pay was way beyond the confort, service, ambiance and amenities offered. Also poor communication. Days before my arrival I called several times in several times of the week and my calls were never answered. I had wanted to request for an early check in. I ended up sending them an email and still one one responded to it :) Basically, call it my worst financial decision and hotel choice of the season.

We are hoteliers ourselves and have chosen this hotel for the views, location and design. We were happy with the young lady at the reception that gave us upgrade to delux room whichfore we were able to enjoy marvelous view from the room. However there are some things to improve. We ordered from the menu room service in the room and were told that we can only order from restaurant menu even though it was same items, just at least 30% pricier, also we wanted a simple chicken soup as one of us had stomach issues after travelling on a ferry from Zanzibar... It was strange that they said they couldn't do it... as it seemed very difficult we finally decided not to have it after all. At night we finally gave another chance to try the restaurant menu in the room. After all the chicken soup was possible as we asked at reception, however Club Sandwich arrived, it wasn't what you expect it to be from a classical club sandwich. Also we asked camomile tea and they didn't have it but brought black tea without asking. I used to work professionally with golden tulip and therefore I knew the company and stayed here but quite a few mistakes make it lesser of an experience, I think receptionist has saved our stay as she arranged romantic setup with Rose petals in the room for an anniversary.
