The hotel and the pool area are not bad even if are a bit old, but the beach is not acceptable, it is full of plastic as the sea in front of it. The worst swim experience of my life! Please clean it! Its not acceptable to leave all the rubbish of a beach!

Loved my 3 nights stay at Whitesands Hotels. All the amenities one would hope for were there. Restaurants had great food, main pool was wonderful, and the staff were all courteous and kind. I stayed in room 208 and the bed was incredibly comfortable and it was a dream waking up to a view of Indian Ocean everyday. Check in was smooth and efficient. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

With lots of renovation going on and almost completed, white sand, the best hotel in Dar to visit with family or couple. I visited with my wife, and stay was fantastic, stayed at one of the chalet top floor , all facing the sea. The beach was under renovaiton, by now is completed.

The room was clean, the staff were friendly, the food was great, the bed was comfy, everything was just great. It also had a 1km private beach, a gym and 3 pools. I would recommend eating outside when you eat breakfast, as there's a fountain in front of the buffet breakfast area. PS: Ignore the date on the review, I actually went in JULY 2018.
