I stay here regularly for business and find the staff very friendly and helpful. Food from the restaurant is excellent quality for Tanzania great for the lazy nights in. Rooms could do with a bit of an upgrade, but are spacious and all is functional and clean. They always try to put me in a room with ocean view, which...

Though the hotel is undoubtedly situated in one of the nicer areas I've seen, and despite its name containing "beach", there is no opportunity to swim at this hotel due to the coral. When my husband and I asked where we could swim we were directed to the yacht club a few minutes away. Shockingly hotel management did not clue...

Good value at a nice location. Unfortunately our stay was somewhat tainted by attempted cloning of my colleague's credit card on the morning of checkout, at reception, by what appeared to be more senior hotel staff. But if you can keep your card in your sight at all times, this hotel offers a good breakfast, clean large rooms and good...

The hotel is really nice but what is critically important for me is customer service.
