We were very excited to stay in the raised huts on the beach and they were clean and laid out well. The deluxe ones have a bathroom which I wasn't expecting, but the area was filled with negatives unfortunately. There is no way of getting away from the insects unless you are in bed, there are no sunbeds on the beach or in the resort, only benches or plastic chairs,and sea is very rough in that spot if you have young children. The manager wanted a tip for showing us the room(isn't that his job?) then another tip for carrying the bags. But it is the resorts around it causing the most hassle, one of them has very loud music all day and the other one has jetski's which is going to end in tragedy as there seems to be no safety concerns and the riders were all wanting to show off so they were very fast and very close to shore. I screamed at one point as a dad and child were in the sea and the dad had to throw his child away from the jetski as the rider practically ran them over. My children did not go back in the water after that because it frightened them as they were in the water when it happened.

Stayed for 6 nights following a cycling tour through Africa. Had very nice beach huts slightly away from the beach but clean and comfy. Felt safe and food was pretty good by African standards although we are vegetarian so had a more limited choice than others. Only thing to watch is working up a tab to your room as it is hard to keep track and sometimes mistakes are made through language misunderstandings. Also would have liked a cocktail earlier in the day than 3pm when the sun was hot even if they are non-alcoholic but rules are rules and I had to wait! Visted another nearby resort and felt it was expensive and unfriendly, so appreciated the value for money and friendliness of the staff at Kipepeo. Only other thing would be that there is a line of small litter, eg. bottle tops, cigarette butts where the tables are which could be raked every morning to clear it as the rest of the beach is clean. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Was advised to choose stilted beach huts which are 8 times the price but was worth it although I didn't see the ordinary huts on the beach to compare. Had just enough hot water in the shower for a quick one with decent flow but good by African standards. Saturday nights are noisy until 4am from a resort nearby and call to prayer for Rammadan at 4am through most of Tanzania....did have a bit of dog barking in the last couple of nights. Rooms are not too hot at night and have good mozzie nets, and lovely hammocks on the balcony. Watch out for the families of mongeese by the stilted huts.

I rented a deluxe banda which was overpriced for what it was - mosquito infested, a broken hot water , a wake up call from the adjacent mosque and booming music into the early hours courtesy on the resort next door. The foods overpriced and average at best and the promised wifi is intermittent at best. Theres better options closer to the kigamboi ferry if you want to stay on this part of the coast.

Room Tip: don't pay the extra for the deluxe banda's

Whether you are looking for a place in the sun or an alternative to a noisy hotel in downtown Dar, this property has it all. Located only a ten minute taxi ride from the Kigamboni ferry landing, the Kipepeo beach resort offers you two storey bungalows with 'ensuite' bathroom facilities or simpler badas (huts) right on the Indian Ocean beach. There are good outdoor bar and restaurant facilities. You can rent guided dhow (local sailboat) service for fishing trips and sightseeing and lunch on the nearby Sinda Island.

I have stayed at Kipepeo 3 times now and I have to say that the Chalets which are set back from the beach are really light and airy - you don't need air con because you have a large balcony at the front of the bedroom and a window above the bed so there is always a sea breeze. The beach is beautiful and the staff (although unfortunately not the owner) are very friendly and helpful. The chalets are very clean and comfortable - although not luxurious.
If you really want to experience something of the "real Africa" there is a village nearby that shows how local people live and a local eating place called "Mamma Africa" which serves local food - extremely cheap and quite nice food. Dar Es Salaam is not far away and there are regular buses to take you to the ferry. I plan going again and will be taking my 2 grandchildren with me and one of my daughters next time.

Room Tip: The chalets may not have a sea view but as they are on stilts and the bedroom is upstairs they are always quite cool and breezy.
