We stayed here for our last two nights in Tanzania, and it was just fabulous. We went to a sea turtle hatching that was just down the road, which was awesome! The staff was super helpful and very accommodating, they upgraded our room for free, and they were always trying to do whatever they could to help. The beach is... More

Nicely situated beach resort with a great swimming pool and an almost private beach. The garden was beautiful and well tended. The food was good but the preparation time took long. The lodges were not fully mosquito proof and unfortunately there weren't mosquito nets around every bed. The flushing of the toilet didn't work properly as well. The staff was... More

This lovely hotel in Kigamboni just outside Dar with a beautiful beach is an excellent place to start your holiday. Price- Quality is perfect. The swimmingpool is great especially when you need to cool down after a long trip. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. They take a personal interest in their guests and find it...

Food: the food here is ala carte but with a reasonable price tag, with fresh produce the fish fillet is to die for with a hint of garlic and a small portion of salad with a choice of chips, mash or boiled potatoes. The steak fillet is cooked to your liking but portion of vegetables and a choice of chips,... More

I had visited Kijiji Beach for the first time on a Sunday to spend some time with my friends and relax. We were warmly welcomed by the receptionist and the hospitality received by Ben - the manager and his employees was simply amazing. The place is really clean and has an amazing view of the Indian Ocean. Thank you, Kijiji... More

Ideal place to relax and to adjust to a different pace when you just arrive from. Nearby the center of Dar (choose the right to commute, there can be trafic jam), comfortable bungalows, good food, friendly service, good swimming pool, value for money. Great place for kids.

This quaint hotel has lots of character, with an amazing view of the ocean, great food and good customer service. Situated in Kigamboni you have to take a small ferry across to the district to get to the resort. Once there the beauty of the resort opens up. Situated right on the beach you can walk along the shore and... More
