We did not expect great service as it is clear from our experience with Tanzania that service does not figure highly in their training. Having said that we had some of the hotel team members who could not be faulted in trying their best for us . The reception team were not good but equally not appalling. We were there... More

After a long flight and just as long drive across Dar from the airport, it was good to finally arrive at the hotel. Lovely setting and great pool area. Staff were very friendly and the room well equipped. It was a little damp and mouldy when I arrived, but after leaving the windows open it smelt a lot better. Would... More

A frustrating place to stay, particularly when you know what good service can be like. I have never experienced an uneventful stay here – something must always go wrong. One trip it was internet that did not work AT ALL for more than a week. Once the curtains fell of the rail at about 7pm and the hotel staff wondered... More

Unfriendly slow inefficient checkin. Stunning lagoon sunset settling. Good facilities, gym pool veranda. Dinner buffet on veranda seemed nice but lacked character and charm, uninviting. Hubblie bubblies are a fun touch. Take your costume and use the pool. Use the local taxis and tuk Tuks.

1. We arrived very late, and knew that it would be a short night only. But it became even much shorter than planned. Upon arrival, they could not find our reservation, although we made it through the Hilton/Doubletree website. Rooms were available, but it took ages before we could finally get a room. I did not know that computers (or... More

I have stayed in many hotel establishments in Tanzania and DoubleTree in Dar is a notch above many. The staff is friendly and goes above and beyond in providing excellent service. The room is very nice and comfortable--equivalent to any of the DoubleTree establishments in the USA (except for the bed, but that is only a minor inconvenience). The food... More

3 star Hotel. Service requires work. Noisey staff for rooms facing the entrance to the kitchen. Breakfast was poor. Guests complained loudly to the chef. She did not seem to have experience. Restaurant staff were not attentive to guests needs. No supervisor in the restaurant or was not noticeable

Stayed for 6 nights to attend a 4-day wedding event. Hotel is okay, bed is comfy (a bit too soft for my spouse) and the staff was friendly. There were some issues, starting with the check-in (wrong room and system issues/down), followed by multiple power outages (I guess they can't handle so many people at once, a huge inconvenience when...

First room smelled terrible. Moved to the second room the bath leaked and flooded the bathroom and bed room. The street noise was disturbing. These are Junior King Suites. Finally moved to a suite where things were quiet and worked. Drinks at the bar, bloody mary made with tomatoes not tomato juice, don't try it. Couldn't wait to leave the... More

Check In took a few minutes longer than expected, but the warm biscuit you get up arrival helps you forget while the time passes. Thereafter, everything was fairly pleasant...spacious clean room, decent internet connectivity and good food.
