I will be a repeat customer!
What a jewel so close to Dar! I did not know what to expect and was a bit unsure. As soon as I checked in to my room, I was so relaxed. I booked for 2 nights and extended for a 3rd. Beach was well taken care of and staff was A+! Breakfast was more than anyone could ask for and the overall food was good. I will be back VERY soon - 20 minutes from home, why not?

The hotel, beach, pools, and rooms were wonderful. The wifi had some issues, but more than less it worked pretty well. I enjoyed my stay.

Loved it
Me and my mum spent 3 nights there, we loved it so much, the staff was very friendly and nice, the food was delicious especially fish! Only the beach could be cleaned daily as it attracts loads of plastics and rubbish :(

Great hotel on a beautiful beach!
Great hotel, lovely staff and good facilities. I loved the balcony and the view and my room was very comfortable. The internet was a bit erratic in the room but the connection was good in the reception and the restaurant. The food in the restaurant was good but I got a bit bored of Indian food after a few days. They should have some Tanzanian specials on their menu. The beach is beautiful and is kept very clean, however, at times there would be a smell from the sea and the water is not clean enough to swim in.

Idyllic location in Dar
Great time in an idyllic location . The hotel has an army of workers keeping the place spotless, including clearing sea weed from the beach. The food is exquisitely prepared by the head chef and a warm welcome from the front of house manager.
Mr Mohamed Dilshad, gb3 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Disappointment behind the scenes
It started with bad travel arrangements at the airport to long check-in at hotel and rooms not being ready well after normal check in times. No refreshments offered at hotel reception. Got wrong room, and had to wait another couple of hours after we got one, then could finally shower off the travel fatigue. Rooms are okay, lots of items not working and complaints lead to more then 24 hours in repair or replacement. WiFi coverage in rooms were non existent to excellent depending on the room. Food was over cooked on. It’s buffet and a la carte menu. You have to find food service staff then someone being conveniently close. One chef actually made decent food, but did not get his name. Kayaks were broken and there was only 3. Wood oven food at the poolside bar went down much better. Pools were great and clean. Picturesque setting. If they get their rooms, service and food up to standard, it would be worth a 4 star resort, but it should be reviewed.

Overall good, rooms dated but food AMAZING!
Overall, the hotel is good. Rooms are a bit shabby and dingy, but perhaps people who come here aren't planning on spending a lot of time in the rooms? Mine was dirty upon arrival and just set the tone for the week. That said, it's a nice area, nice loop to walk/jog on the premises, view is beautiful and food is great! Conference services were fine, though again a little shabby. Very far from Dar and taxis very expensive, so plan to stay at the resort.
