“BRINGS A BIG SMILE TO MY FACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I was recently in Ledger Plaza Bahari Beach Hotel for a workshop with several other colleagues (90+) and they did a great job. The rooms are good quality, the food was good, internet was available and I can't complain - the grounds and flowers were soothing to the eye.
It just felt lovely to wake up every morning with a view of the ocean just outside my door - the only regret i have was that we stayed too long deliberating in the conference center - rather than enjoying the grounds, amenities and services at the hotel. The first day we arrived was a Saturday - there was a wedding and it was lovely by the pool - next to the ocean, with good music etc.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and I felt like I had known them for years. The TV had a lot of great channels.

I encourage everyone that can, to go visit Ledger Plaza Bahari Beach Hotel. It just brings such lovely memories to my mind and i am smiling as I write this review.

Try not to check in after midnight though because the night staff are not very efficient with check in and we actually had a delegation of 9 people sleep on chairs in the open lobby for one day, being bitten by mosquitoes - when there were actually rooms available. The night receptionist seemed to have been overwhelmed.

Otherwise, great experience and everyone left happy.

Room Tip: Rooms are all lovely - I got a complimentary upgrade.

Well, after reading all this reviews about this hotel we decided to go and give it a try.... New hotel, 5 stars (no even to Tanzanian standards!!)... let's spend the Sunday.. first at the gate we had no trouble, they didn't charge any money, which is unusual for a day use in beach hotels in Dar. So that was good.. and that was it!!! from the parking to the hotel there is a bit of walk, nobody said anything to us.. we walked by a small reception, empty, we got to the bar, nobody say hi yet... we go to the pool.. same same.. so we finally go to the beach. No one there!!! only one couple at the end.. we waited around 15 minutes until we saw a member of the staff who took around 20 minutes (minimum) to bring us a menu.. them he left before we order.. another 25 minutes for him to get back, so we order drinks (by the way no milkshakes or juices because all blenders are broken.. hahaha true!!) and food (not hungry at all but given the pace of service...) well done, 50 minutes later we received the order. they forgot one sauce, so the waiter went to fetch it and brought it to us... when we finished....by the way, the couple at the end of the beach... they got their order after us and we found out that they had ordered it before.. great!!! all afternoon, not even one manger to be seen, not that we need him/her.. the hotel does!!!!
So, I really don't know where those great comments came from (I have an idea..., and it's not good do that, nothing worst than cheating)...
I don't know how the rooms are.. but the service is TERRIBLE!! wake up!!!!!

I recently have stayed a few nights in the Bahari Beach Hotel. Located directly at the beach, with plenty of beach chairs and a beautiful pool. The hotel rooms seemed to be renovated, they are very nice, with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Air condition, WLAN is working quite well, bedroom is provided with a mosquito net. Food for breakfast is ok, when asking staff, they will as well serve different egg dishes, pancakes etc. Service was fast, staff friendly, overall a surprisingly good hotel. Certainly a recommendation!

I stayed at the BBH for a week in August 2013. I rate this hotel the best in Dar es Salaam IMHO. I particularly liked the management of Seth Osumba, who was always friendly, helpful and efficient.

There are 15 or 20 recently renovated 2-storey safari-style bungalows, each with 4 rooms equipped with everything a 5 star hotel should have.. The sea view from1st floor is excellent.

BBH room rates are not low ($250/night) but the comfort is worth it.
The hotel is somewhat distant from the city center (30-40 minutes drive) but that has its own advantages. The beach is never crowded and there is never any disturbance from peddlers or bypassers.

My friend and I are currently volunteering in Tanzania and we are staying in a hostel near this hotel, but wanted somewhere to shower and use the pool and have lunch etc. The staff at the ledger plaza couldn't be more welcoming - they let us change money, charge our phones and use their wifi (for a minimal price) We pay 10,000 shillings a day for the pool which is very decent considering how gorgeous the facilities are! The food and drinks are also very reasonable and very very good quality (we had the vegetable pizza and seafood pizza for lunch today for 32,000 and they were delicious) I wish I could stay here!!! The only problem is how slow the service is, ie our shisha took an hour to arrive the other day - however this is very typical of Tanzania, everything is very slow and laid back, so I can't really fault them for that!
