We were here today for a day ... Nice Indian buffet for lunch ...Great white sands - the sea moves much closer by the evening tide ...and a awesome band who played some old nostalgic songs like 'Feeling hot hot hot' :) Thank you guys... You made our day!

The bar service is bit laid back though .. You order for snacks etc. and it takes a while to reach ...other than this everything is awesome !

Stayed: May 2013, traveled with family

Dear Guest

Many thanks for taking the time to write the constructive review about your Sunday visit to Kunduchi Beach Hotel and Resort.

We value the comments made. We took note of your comment regarding the slow bar service. The new menu and system in place should take care of the problem. Kunduchi Beach Hotel has the best beach in Dar.

Live entertainment throughout the week. We have added the Planet Band on Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday lunch times. They entertain with a variety golden oldies and new versions.
We also have our in house band ( Raha) who is part of the Kunduchi family. They have been with us for more than eight years. To spice the entertainment up we have also introduced acrobats and local dancers.

Kunduchi Beach Hotel caters for all. We have different theme nights. The beach barbeque is extremely popular on Friday nights. We also do a a bonfire in the area. Saturday we have an Oriental buffet and on Sundays our signature Indian curry lunch.

We trust you will visit us soon. Karibu Kunduchi

Kind regards

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Staff second to none, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent breakfast, well served and nothing left out. Rooms wonderful, relaxing and immaculate. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tanzania. Evenings in the lounge and bar are relaxing and friendly with close attention from the barman from behind the bar (who remembers your favourite drink) and snacks fresh from the kitchen - just like a country house. Pots of tea whenever you want during the day. Can't recommend it enough for the discerning traveller who has a business trip but requires attention to detail and service to match - this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: If you have specific requirements, discuss with staff and they will assist...

Thank you Thiaart, u made my business trip.....a pleasure, me an d the the mates from Capco will be joining you for another business stay in Dar.

The good
Location is nice with a long private beach. You are however not allowed to stray any further for safety reasons. In general the staff are friendly, service is however often very slow.
Our room was clean and had a nice view.

You can also make an excursion to a nearby uninhabited island. We had a fantastic day there, try the bbq lobster.

The bad
The food was hit and miss. We were on half board and got a very limited choice of dishes. We opted to pay extra to eat from the normal menu instead. The breakfast was extremely poor.

The hotel looks like it had seen better days and some investment is badly needed. The pool is also quite small and they had a shortage of towels when we visited.

We also walked over to the waterpark which was bigger than I expected but also in need of maintenance.

Would I come back? Only if they made some improvements and spent some money on maintenance.

Once again we were at the resort this time it was during Easter, the stay was superb filled with alot of fun for the kids starting from Easter egg hunt to acrobatics show by a local Tanzanian group. The service was perfect and the managers were always concerned about the guests which was quite impressing. My wife is 8 months pregnant so we requested for a ground floor room and we were gladly accommodated for. The staff were very polite and helpful. The food was very good as well especially the dinner that was on the beach however a little more lighting was needed. Rooms are nice and comfortable with a good sea view. Overall it's an excellent beach resort and I would certainly recommend to all to stay at the resort.
