We were attending family wedding in Dar and we decided that all of us go for a picnic and we came to this hotel for a night stay. It's a nice big place. They have a good swing pool and the beach is just there. Food is good and the staff are very friendly. Rooms are big and the toilets... More

The staff are nice and made an effort for us however the rooms and bathrooms are so old and tired that the rooms should not be sold for anymore than $50. At the current price of ~$200 per room its simply, along with the food which is the most expensive I have seen in Dar. Luckily we only booked two... More

The waiters were nice, even if sometime little hard to communicate with. The facilities (inc. The rooms, the beach, the pool and it's area and the restorant) was... More

The chairs at the dining hall & taps in the bathroom are rusty. Bedsheets and towels are no longer white - the colour has turned into brown - this means cleanliness isn't observed. Tap water is very salty

Dear reviewer, thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the facilities and restaurant. As beautiful as our southern beaches are in Dar, we experience an unusual influx of seaweed and high tides during the months of January to March. We rake and clean the beaches as best we can however with each tide twice a day it... More

Very entertaining for fun loving family members. We danced, went for swimming and the dancing under the colourful splash water is just perfect. We could get any type of snacks, food, refreshments etc The music is also great. Awesome place to be in

I was at the hotel for 2 nights, the meals were great. Staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed on the third floor and the view was breathtaking. The rooms were nicely done but the duvets though clean, were stained. Showering with salty water was not so great for me. The conference facility was well arranged and spacious. The hallway... More
