The room was excellent and the hotel staff went out of their way to help us. On Thursday night, there is a manager's reception. We met many of the staff and both the business manager and finance manager. Everyone provided so much information about the country, Africa, and many places to see and things to do. It was so relaxed and informal. Many of the staff members also helped us learn basic Swahili phrases. It was an oasis after two safari trips. Great place to stay.

Room tip: The hotel has two buildings. One has water views.

Very friendly staff and very helpful. Reception efficient rooms large and well equipped and clean all air conditioned. Pool very nice a little shallow at deep end 125 cm or 4ft!! a little low. No outside shower by pool! very nice pool bar beautiful view but slow service when ordering meals. Definitely get poolside rooms have good good view of pool and ocean.At low tide not so nice only coral and algae. Beds a little too soft- not for honeymooners.

The Doubletree Hotel by Hilton is the Hotel to stay if and when visiting DAR. The staff is well trained, helpful, great location right on the Bay. Great pool, spacious rooms, food is outstanding and the dinners on the Patio deserve special mention.

Dar es Salaam is such s wonderfully crazy city! Traffic, markets, corn growing in front gardens, great food and thousands of the greatest invention in modern times: THE TUK-TUK! Lol!!! Love them!

Once you are done with sightseeing, shopping or working... come home to the Doubletree Oyster Bay!... Forget about the ugly 1970's or 1980's ... Maybe 1990's weird exterior and enter into a heaven of peace:

1- Well-trained staff!
2- huge renovated rooms
3- attentive bell boys/I will call the Junior Concierges (Ramadhan always smiling and helpful)
4- but the best: the pool area and the terraces overlooking the estuaries!

Meals:
Breakfast is great, I would move it to a more open space... Mind you the estuary in the mornings, at low-tide is not very attractive... The breakfast chef at the omelette staton has a great personality!

Lunch: definitely the Pool bar: by the way their chef must be Indian, the somosas and the curries are tops and actually, their spaghetti Bolognese Sauce is superb, just remind them to cook the pasta only 9 minutes! They tend o over-cook it! Al dente... Al dente!!!

Dinner: good theme buffet nights on the terraces: great idea! Still if you are not fond of Buffet meals, like me, the pool bar serves a bar menu, sandwiches, salads and burgers, an indian menu and a international one until 23:00 hrs!!!

By the way: also the pool is open until 23:00!!!

I return to this hotel any day!
