I was travelling alone in Dar and was recommended Kipepeo by a friend of mine. Was meant to stay two days, but was a little too lazy to make the trip across on the ferry, so did one night at a different spot. This was a stupid mistake as once I pulled myself together and went I wish I had had more time here.
The ferry from dar centre was fine, I went across on foot as no car and then I got a taxi to the resort.
On arrival I was warmly greeted and felt right at home. The staff were very helpful and were able to advise clearly about my next day of travel to Zanzibar and booking ferries etc. In fact they booked it all for me, which helped alot.
I stayed in a chalet which I found to be charming. It was simple yes, yet catered for everything I needed. True, they do not overlook the beach, but that did not bother me as the beach was just a few mins walk away. Bathroom downstairs, so don't drink too many cocktails before bed ;0)
The bar and restaurant was nice and comfortable and the staff were again very friendly without being overly so (a girl on her own get tired of the "where you from comment" all the time. So I was able to relax and not get bothered. Food was tasty and arrived in food time, although I do not think the seafood was caught there and may have been frozen prawns, but I ate the lot anyway.
Would certainly go back.
