I like the view, great location lovely beach front, but I guess on weekends it's not a place you want to go to if you want some peace and quiet. Ridiculously loud music, I guess its perfect for families and friends,,,but as a couple looking for some peace and quiet at a beach front..not so much. The ancient TVs need...

Loved staying here with my family. The staff and Management were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and inviting. The pool was gorgeous..and the beach so beautiful!!!

I went to Hotel South Beach from 04.09.13 - 06.09. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made! The hotel is surrounded by a high wall and has several security checkpoints you must go through. Around the property there are also several guards. This can probably sounds a little scary, but in Dar es Salaam, this is highly...

I have stayed at Hotel South Beach three times now. The first I was only there for 16 hours or so, mostly staying for sleeping and a hot shower. The second time I was there for 2 nights and during this time they were reconstructing and fixing the HUGE hot tub, which isn't hot but more like "room" temp with...

I was just in the beach and pool, not hosted in the resort. It's was one of my best african experience. The place is so quiet and relaxing. The sea is incredibly blue and so clean. The services is perfect. I was there twice and both times I would never go back.

This hotel about 10km away from dar es salaam town, seems good to relax but they are playing music all day long and the hotel looks like those big and cheap all inclusive resort in nord africa or spain. I would recommend kipepeo 200 meter before, much more authentic

Hotel South Beach Resort had all their rooms with fantastic view of the Indian Ocean, what else can you ask for. The beds were huge and the children slept very well. Hardly paid pennies for such a great stay. The food was awesome, Indian menus and kids meal were the best. They picked up from the ferry at a premium...

Our credit card was charged even before our arrival for the accommodation. Upon check-in management tried to confiscate one of our passports - we blatantly refused, apart from it being illegal they have already been paid. None of the other resorts we visited in Tanzania and Zanzibar had any problem validating your credit cards or with payments of deposits on...
