I have visited this resort twice for conferences, and have found the overall experience to be very positive. The accommodation is reasonably priced for it's quality, the food is down to earth and pleasant, if you like Indian food (which I do), and the staff are courteous and helpful. The setting is gorgeous, and the beach is clean and inviting.... More

I did had a nice time there and the hospitality of their staffs are great, i'd definitely choose South Beach Resort my next visit to Tanzania. The facilities are great and i love the beach, spend most of my days at the beach and the swimming pool.

1. When we came back to the hotel after our safari trip, our key to the room didn't work. After waiting an hour they finally managed to open the door and we realised that the staff had stolen all our belongings - clothes, jewellery, shoes and money. 2. When we booked our stay we were informed that that the rest... More

The less said the better. Loud all night. Terrible food. Rundown and delapidated rooms. One of the most uncomfortable stays I have had anywhere in the world. The music was so loud that could not sleep. I went to complain and they told me I should stay somewhere else. Well next time I will and I suggest the same to... More

I liked the discount we got while asking the price! Yet, it was good that the prices were up in the board though they were different in the website. The hotel itself was clean and there was time for being quiet. Sadly we came during the music evenings (Sat and Sun). They would have been nice for the ones who... More

I like the view, great location lovely beach front, but I guess on weekends it's not a place you want to go to if you want some peace and quiet. Ridiculously loud music, I guess its perfect for families and friends,,,but as a couple looking for some peace and quiet at a beach front..not so much. The ancient TVs need... More
