The people are warm & friendly. It's easy to move around - option of a three wheeler (Bajaj) or a taxi which the hotel can arrange. Many restaurants to choose from. Make sure you try out Samaki Samaki if you're a fish lover and Lucas Bar where you'll get to take how local fish is prepared! Love the weather -... More

Lovely hotel in a quiet area of Dar es Salaam. The rooms are spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The restaurant serves a very nice breakfast buffet and the dinner meals are very good. Excellent staff that strives to provide cordial and friendly service all the time.

We stayed twice at this hotel (1 night each time). The hotel is located in a nice, quiet residential area even though it's a bit of a distance from the airport if there is heavy traffic. The rooms were large as well as the bathroom, A/C worked properly, beds were bigger than average and comfortable. WiFi worked in the room... More

The class is good, and location near the ocean quite glamorous and breath taking. Big rooms, but need to equip the gym and make it a little bit bigger. It had only dumbbells and treadmill. No squat rack barbels and free wights.

This hotel has become one my favourite ones in Dar es Salaam. The rooms are superb and spacious. The restaurant food and service are excellent. How they are able to train their staff to be so polite and attentive remains a mystery to me. Their breakfast buffet has almost too many choices, from 'local' specialties to international traditional ones, like... More

This is a great place to stay in Dar es Salaam. The lodging is wonderful, the staff are attentive and extremely helpful and the breakfast buffet is marvelous. The price to stay here is in line with other 4/5 star hotels but the staff always work to make you feel welcome. Ask for a room in the main building with... More

Lovely place to be with a lovely view of the sea. I loved the quietnes, not the usual busy and rowdy hotel environs you get in other places. I think there needs to be music (its too quite) especially by the bar at the pool side

Very large rooms, very clean and nicely located. Good Service and a very nice Garden and Swimming pool which was very quiet. Small Breakfast room friendly staff, personally welcomed by the director. Good Running at the front road along the waterfront.

The rooms were very dated, showers head did not work properly and generally old. Needs a desperate refurbishment. However, service was good, food was average and the scenery around the hotel was very nice. I will most likely book into a different hotel on my next trip unless a big refurbishment has been done.

The hotel is not very close to City Center, but if you're looking for a place in Oyster Bay it's perfect. Next door to the Slipway to catch sunsets and drinks and also walking distance to Cape Town Fish Market. The staff (and even management) are always incredibly helpful and have a smile on their face. The rooms seem recently... More
