“Pleasant Stay overall”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Our stay with Kunduchi was pleasant overall, however the hotel needs a lot of maintenance. Some examples here in below:

- The sofas in executive room 125 are torn.
- Room 114 does not have a tub drain stopper
- What happened to the original amenities of the hotel? the photocopied paper labels are a big
negative
- Bulbs in the lobby pillar lamps bulges out and some do not work.
- Rugs in the lobby are very old
- Most rooms still have big bulky CRTs

Positives:
- Structure of the hotel - Excellent
- Food - very good and a good variety
- Bed was comfortable
- Staff were pretty pleasant

Dear Guest


Many thanks for the review written. We appreciate all the constructive feedback, good or bad.

The couch in room 125 has been replaces. An interior decorator was here and we are awaiting her feedback. The lounge and room furniture will be changed in the near future. Renovations has started on our East wing. We are positive that the Kunduchi Beach Hotel will return to its former glory. I will share the information with the rest of my TEAM. Your positive remarks regarding the food and staff are appreciated.

Karibu Kunduchi

Friendly greetings

Many thanks for the great review.

A pity you had to be on business as Kunduchi Beach Resort is the perfect place for a holiday break away. We are blessed with the best beach in Dar.

Your positive comments will be posted on the notice board for the whole TEAM to see. They will appreciate the comments...good for motivation.

My organization recently booked four rooms at Kunduchi for a conference. Everyone agreed that it was a nice hotel: safe, welcoming, comfortable, etc.

However, I feel the need to mention that:

a) Internet is $10/day
b) Airport shuttle is $45 (one-way)
c) Paying for the hotel rooms was a huge mess that took two weeks to get settled. Even once the bill was fully paid, when our guests asked if the bill was paid the hotel said, "I don't know." One week later, we're still waiting on one of the receipts to come through.

Many thanks for taking the time to write this review.

We are grateful for the general good comments regarding the resort. We have confidence in the product. I would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused with regards to the administration lapse. The incident will be investigated. You can contact me on my personal mail. gm@kunduchi.com

I am sure the planned upgrade in infrastructure will eliminate the internet charges. The airport transfers are charged at a minimum of $45 one way. If you are three people or more in the vehicle it is only $15.

Kunduchi Beach Resort is a beautiful property. Your comments are appreciated in our efforts to make Kunduchi the number one beach resort in Dar es Salaam.

Beaches are quite spectacular especially when tide is low. Good experience and great stay overall. All rooms have a great sea view and Staff tries hard to attend to all your needs.
Gym is very tiny and not very well equipped.
Hotel is a quite far from from city centre and traffic can be very heavy.

Many thanks for the positive response. I will relay your comments to the TEAM.

Hospitality is the one profession where you can receive a lot of job satisfaction. A lot of time has been spend on the training aspect. Kunduchi Beach Resort has the best beach. A Kite School has been added to improve the guest experience and increase the activities available.

What a setting! I was part of the Entico conference and was very impress with the ambiance and service provided. The dinners at Mawimbi was a treat. Live music, friendly and efficient service. Many thanks to Aiden our waiter. He is a good sport.

There was some good energy all round. People were dancing and having a good time. Hotel has a beautiful stretch of beach. There was even a bonfire....the food was a good spread as well. Conference rooms are adequate. Service provided was good.
I know Entico has booked for September and December at the same hotel. Cannot imagine a better venue for any function or conference.

Looking forward to my next visit.

Hotel is worn out and places in poor condition. The rooms smell like mold. Does not match the price class in my opinion. The beach is awesome.Breakfast is poor, as is usual in Dar hotels. Seats are worn.
