After a long day of driving we were desperately in need of a quiet place where we could spend one night and a full day before our flight back home. We did not have a prior booking so we just decided to check out two other hotels along this stretch of beach on the northern side of Dar, which were... More

The staff are very friendly, the rooms have all you need; free WiFi, aircon, fridge, mosquito nets and a good table to work at. The food is definitely sub standard as it is either overcooked or undercooked every time ordered especially the seafood.... The breakfast is very limited and not good either. They definitely need more security as their is... More

My husband and I were vacationing at the Beachcomber with my parents and uncle's family for a few nights. We had been having quite a lovely time at the hotel and exploring the island until Friday night, July 24, 2015.

The shower drain was clogged with 3 inches of water mixed with sand and mud. We were given room 114 for showers but the shower head did not work, only... More

The rooms at Beachcomber were spacious and beautiful. The food at the restaurant is great. The staff was super friendly. The swimming pool is also large. They usually have swim classes for kids most afternoons which is adorable to watch. Overall, a relaxed and nice stay.

The hotel was overall average at best. What was really upsetting was being called a liar by the front desk agent upon checkout. After she apologized for an unexpected service charge (which we weren't told of at the point of booking) the agent proceed to tell us that if we were "honest people" we would pay the charge. She admitted... More
