Serene clean beach, wonderfully integrated into the environment. Upgrade in facility infrastructure, elevator needed to support service staff, to minimize if not to eliminate injury to guest and staff.

Nov 2020 South Beach
Hotel room was poor, general condition needed lifting, cobwebs, flaking paint, stained bed linen in places, paper thin pillows, mattress needs upgrading please, generally needed some investment as the beach was very nice. It has a useful restaurant, bar, its main feature is the generous thatched roof over the building. Staff were very willing. I loved its location, less muzungu tourists, lovely beach. The pool looked ominous bredda.

Best Resort / Hotel in Dar Es Salaam!
Amazing location, friendly staff, professional manager on site... And literally 100 feet away from the ocean! Amenities: *hot water *free wifi *swimming pool *restaurant *bar *mosquito nets *room service or large beautiful outdoor dining area *beach front property!! *Daily housekeeping Great for a romantic getaway, business trip, or family vacation with young children. It's just minutes away from major shopping malls, grocery stores and banks / atms for your convenience. This resort also has a full professional kitchen with several chefs each specializing in various generas of food which is why thier menu successfully encompasses American, Asian, Indian and Italian cuisine. If you're visiting Tanzania, make sure to go to Kigamboni..... And when you visit Kigamboni, don't even think about going anywhere else or you'll be missing out on an amazing experience!

Not worth it
The picture of the Hotel they have on the website is misleading: the beach is not directly in from of the hotel: you must walk 200m or so, passing in the swimmingpool area first (so no sand close to the hotel). The food and anything else is extremely overpriced compared to its value. Surprisingly you pay 15000 tzs for a juice (from carton), whereas in the previous 3* hotel where I was I could pay 15000 for juice (the same one) plus a complete meal.

8/10 Very good

This was the best holiday of my life. South Beach hotel has the most amazing atmosphere, especially on a Saturday night. And to top it off, the food was incredible; the staff were super-helpful (and spoke good English) and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Thank you!

Only better for Beach experience not Hotel
It was terrible. Far from the ferries, they dont have transportation for guests, terrible staffing at night because when I arrived there almost everyone was asleep. I did not get any food because they dont do that service over night and the room condition is just very mediocre like a cheap hostel room. The food the following day was overpriced for no reason at all because for breakfast was simply very plain fried eggs and expensive tosts, and even there is no any professional customer care whats so ever. I would not go back there for a hotel experience or stay overnight. I would simply just go for a fresh expensinve Beach experience because they have it nice there but super expensive again.
