Excellent, excellent, excellent. Staff second to none, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent breakfast, well served and nothing left out. Rooms wonderful, relaxing and immaculate. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tanzania. Evenings in the lounge and bar are relaxing and friendly with close attention from the barman from behind the bar (who remembers your favourite drink) and snacks fresh from the kitchen - just like a country house. Pots of tea whenever you want during the day. Can't recommend it enough for the discerning traveller who has a business trip but requires attention to detail and service to match - this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: If you have specific requirements, discuss with staff and they will assist...

Thank you Thiaart, u made my business trip.....a pleasure, me an d the the mates from Capco will be joining you for another business stay in Dar.

The good
Location is nice with a long private beach. You are however not allowed to stray any further for safety reasons. In general the staff are friendly, service is however often very slow.
Our room was clean and had a nice view.

You can also make an excursion to a nearby uninhabited island. We had a fantastic day there, try the bbq lobster.

The bad
The food was hit and miss. We were on half board and got a very limited choice of dishes. We opted to pay extra to eat from the normal menu instead. The breakfast was extremely poor.

The hotel looks like it had seen better days and some investment is badly needed. The pool is also quite small and they had a shortage of towels when we visited.

We also walked over to the waterpark which was bigger than I expected but also in need of maintenance.

Would I come back? Only if they made some improvements and spent some money on maintenance.

Dear Guest

Many thanks for taking time in writing a review.

Kunduchi Beach Hotel and Resort values the feedback on our facility. The points mentioned are valid and we will use the guidelines given to improve our services. Major renovations and upgrading are part of our immediate plans. Our swimming pool we find is adequate with our Wet and Wild Water Park next door. All residents have free access to the Water Park. As you mentioned we also have a beautiful private beach.

We have introduced new menus. On job training for the service staff is also part of our daily routine. We are committed in providing our guests the service they deserve.

We would love to welcome you back to Kunduchi Beach Hotel and Resort in the near future. Please contact me directly with your next booking.

Once again we were at the resort this time it was during Easter, the stay was superb filled with alot of fun for the kids starting from Easter egg hunt to acrobatics show by a local Tanzanian group. The service was perfect and the managers were always concerned about the guests which was quite impressing. My wife is 8 months pregnant so we requested for a ground floor room and we were gladly accommodated for. The staff were very polite and helpful. The food was very good as well especially the dinner that was on the beach however a little more lighting was needed. Rooms are nice and comfortable with a good sea view. Overall it's an excellent beach resort and I would certainly recommend to all to stay at the resort.

I had read a lot of the reviews of this property so I was not expecting much to be honest but I wanted something on the Dar Es Salaam coast and I had already been to the neighboring White Sands. I cannot believe how pleasantly surprised I was and I almost thought I was at a different place to the one I had read about. It does take a really long time to get there from the airport but this is due to the fact they are working on the road there so I am sure once that is finished it will be easier.

The location, one you are there, is wonderful with one of the best beaches I have seen of this coast. The resort itself was really spacious with the most wonderfully attentive staff. We were there over Easter and it was packed but the staff were completely in control. There was quite a few activities for the children which was good. I did learn that there was a new management team on board that had recently joined and already made a big difference and you could see them all the time working as a team which was good.

The rooms are not huge but they for a resort they are just what you would need as you spend most of the time outside. They do all have tv, tea/coffee making facilities and a separate toilet to bathroom.

The swimming pool is nice but it is too small for the size resort and gets VERY busy so that was a bit of a disappointment.

Next door is the Wet n Wild Water Park which was a good addition for the children but it is a bit tired and needs some TLC (and paint). If these were given a little overhaul it would be brilliant (as long as they keep the music down as the was deafening).

The food is buffet in the main restaurant but with a lot of choice and there is also al la carte which was very good.

I would certainly go back there.

Dear Valued Guest

Many thanks for the time taken to write the review.

Kunduchi Beach Resort has a new team who are ALL committed in creating a good guest experience. We have introduced new food and beverage menus. Staff training is part of our daily routine. Even our entertainment program has been changed. We have a lovely facility and the best beach in Dar Es Salaam.

We do realize that the drive from the airport can be frustrating. The new roads will eliminate most of the traffic issues. Your comment regarding the swimming pool is an interesting one. At Kunduchi Beach Hotel we also have the biggest waterpark in East Africa with various pools and slides. The venue is child friendly and a perfect location for a family vacation.

Asante Sana (Thank you )
