The reception process, room and environment is very good and clean. However, I found the quality of food preparation not very appetizing. I like the sea side, ambience, good security and responsive hotel employees. The check out time was flexible and convenient for our departure time. Thank you.

As another user posted, this is a solid choice in my book. Rooms are large, aircon works very well, depending on which room you obtain, the views can be spectacular (or awful, again just depends - I've had both). Security is good for Tanzania. A coffee lounge in the main lobby is good to meet local contacts. The pool is...

The hotel was good, the staff were helpful, the evening buffet food was great, I had to leave before breakfast sadly and I was only there one night. They had live outdoor music to go with the outdoor buffet which was really good, only down side was a few biting mosquitoes but you have to expect that in Africa
