I have traveled all over the world and stayed in the finest resorts, but I have never encountered more courteous and professional employees than: Salama Msilu, Rose Sadru, and Hadija Chande. These three women worked in the Hotel Dining Room and they could not have been more helpful, cheerful and courteous. Hotels are hotels, but it is the employees who... More

I've been told this is better than a standard DoubleTree - it's well-built and designed and the service is great. There is an awesome patio to enjoy dinner and the sunset from. Business centre offers free printing from their computers, and the wifi is good throughout the complex (inside and out). Only downside is that the food options differ whether... More

This hotel has everything you would expect for the price bracket. The food and location are its best selling points. Sundowners on the terrace overlooking the ocean and delicious breakfasts were the highlight for me.

I have had a very good experience staying at the DoubleTree in Dar. My room was very nice with a fantastic view of the ocean. I found the hotel to be very clean and the staff to be fantastic. Ayesha from the restaurant delivered food to my room twice and she was kind, professional, and very personable.

Probably good for local options but when looking at North American standards it fell short. Power outages, painting (chemical fumes in room), internet dropped a lot. Beautiful building, friendly staff however ordering food in english it is difficult to get order correct.
