Bagamoyo Country Club
Ranked #4 of 17 Bagamoyo B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We were in Bagamoyo for a week and stayed in another place that was horrible so we transferred to the Bagamoyo Country Club. It was definitely much better with a nice setting and a decent restaurant and reliable WIFI. Having said that, we still did have several problems including our AC not working for 1/2 our stay, our shower not draining properly, etc. All in all, it is the best place we could find in Bagamoyo but I think it is expensive for what you get.

I stayed here with my husband and three kids. The views are beautiful and nice quiet beach but the service was not good. We ordered fish for dinner and it was not fresh and tasted awful. The manager came and took it back and we ordered prawns instead. The rooms were okay but the bathroom flooded due leakages in the pipes, one room had AC running but the other room AC did not work. If you stay here order pizza

I have only eaten at BCC, never stayed there. However I frequently go there for meals. Excellent food, great staff. Pizzas are recommended! Location on the beach is perfect for a swim followed by lunch and lounging with a good book.

My wife and I visited Bagamoyo Country club last weekend. We were impressed by the setting of the hotel and the great sea facing views.
For the price point of the hotel we felt that the rooms were very basic and the ACs did not work, which left us very hot and stuffy in the summer heat. Also we requested a late checkout since we arrived around 6pm the previous night but the staff would not budge from the 10:30am checkout time which is a little too early we felt.

We visited Bagamoyo Country Club once again in November 2013 after having already spent extensive time there in early 2011. Having then been very impressed by the quality of food and service and the beauty of the property, our expectations were more than met again this time.

The room was still pretty basic but includes all the comforts one could hope for considering the price: Cleanliness, AC and fan, well-working mosquito nets, bathroom with warm water and a safe. The view from the room was still as spectacular as ever: High up and looking down through gardens dotted with flowers and seeing the dhows sailing on the Indian Ocean!

BCC has great food! We especially recommend the prawns pili-pili and the homemade wood-oven pizza. The restaurant and bar is a really cool place to hang out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, good company and meet interesting people. It’s nice for families with kids as well as there’s lots of space to play, the staff is very friendly and the beach is secure (our 3 year old girl loves it there!). It seems to be the cleanest stretch of coastline in Bagamoyo as it’s a bit further out and is quite popular with occasional kite surfers, snorkelling etc. All in all, a fun, affordable and cool place to hang out!!

Cheers,
Paul & Lisa

I love the BCC, and will return there again and again (luckily, I work in Bagamoyo). It's a beautiful setting (despite the evil stairs), the staff there are the friendliest people, the food is amazing (though slow. well, sometimes at least), the beach is right on your door step, the garden is private, the rooms are basic but absolutely fine especially for the money!! Will always stay there again. Yes, they have issues that are quite common in Tanzania - lack of electricity (generator out of fuel), no hot water, food takes some time, empty promises... but I have stayed in $100+ hotels in Bagamoyo/Tanzania where this is not any better!!!

Although a little outside of the village-center (20 minutes walk) the location right at the beach is the best of all hotels in Bagamoyo (I lived in Bagamoyo for 8 months). The staff is very nice and tries to help you whenever you have a problem. The food is very good, the new pizzaoven makes a great addition. If you go there for food you shouldn't be in a rush as the preparation time can vary a lot. From the nice and light rooms you can look otside and you'll see the beach. Go there to enjoy, it's worth it!
