This hotel has one of the best spots in Dar, with some stunning views. Most rooms also have balconies from which to watch the tides go up and down while sipping on something. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are spacious. The only thing lacking was on the quality of the food, but this is true for most... More

I stayed at the Coral Beach for just over a week when I first arrived to the country. I found the location fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful. I was first given a room on the first floor towards the back as the hotel was full. I asked to move rooms and as soon as they were available... More

I have stayed here a couple of times and the location over looking the bay, the warmth and kindness of the staff and the waterfront bar mean I will continue to stay here on future trips. The hotel itself is of a decent standard, clean and comfortable with good size rooms/bathrooms. Food is excellent (Mauritian chefs) and prices for food... More

Annoying things not working like the TV remote and room safe, were reported, a commitment made by the duty manager to rectify the next day and nothing happened. No hot water at the basin, and ineffective air conditioning also spoilt the great location.

Great location at the very tip of The Peninsula. Enjoyed some tasty cocktails whilst watching the sun set. Rooms seem OK - not the lap of luxury but this is "real Africa" so expectations need to be managed. Good breakfast and very helpful staff.

Hotel grounds and location are great, especially the beach bar. It had nice sunset view somewhat good coctails. However breakfast was mediocre and room was damp, with moldy smell. So overall score would be average.
