“the best place to take people from out of town”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

A gorgeous view, pretty good food for Dar, GREAT coffee, really nice desserts, and nice wait staff. Plus, in many parts, the floor is beach sand, so the kids can play in the sand while you relax and enjoy your lunch and a coffee.

“On the beach”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The location of the gym on the beach, with its glass window to give you a view of the bay, is this hotel's best asset. Food is good (Italian), great pizza, great outdoor seating area. Rooms are o.k. It is far from the City Centre and Airport. Quite noisy due to nightclub activities nearby at night, but great for relaxing during the day with a view of the sea. Service is good. A bit expensive.

“Beach Front wonder, poor service, pricey”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The location is unbeatable. You seat pretty much next to the Indian Ocean and the view is simply breath taking. But it all went down hill for me from here. Maybe they were having a bad day because multiple people recommended them.

My Experience
Walked in and was waiting by the bar area for a friend to join me. It took 10 minutes (I was counting) before I was approached and it was not busy. The staff like most locations in Dar is unenthusiastic and luck a sense of urgency to serve unless you call them to ask for something which I had to for my second drink.
My friend finally arrived and we were promptly seated given menus and the server promptly brought our drinks. We had to of course call the server 15 minutes later to take our orders which he did. So imagine our shock when he comes back and tells us that the kitchen was only serving Pizza that afternoon due to an issue!!! Fine but why weren't we informed earlier? We left disappointed shocked at the lack of communication between the kitchen staff and the servers. I am a frequent visitor to Dar but I will NOT be returning to Mediterraneo.

“Fantastic atmosphere”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great food, albeit we had to wait for 1,5 hours to get it (but we were a big company of 12 people...) Cosy atmoshpere almost right on the beach - nice to hear the ocean at night!
