This was the sixth year that my colleagues and I had chosen to stay at the Coral Beach, at the end of our volunteering teaching trip to Tanzania. We love it! Everything is really clean, and nothing too much trouble for the staff. Evelyn on the Reception desk was really helpful in sorting a couple of ideas which we hope to develop next year

I stayed at Coral Beach hotel twice for business. The hotel is amazing and the location even more perfect! The staff is super helpful and friendly. The shuttle services are excellent and very reliable. The cleaning of rooms as well as the business centre can be improved. I tried most of the meals on the menu and they are all good! The conferencing services are good and would host an event again there.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights from the 28th Jun 2018. This was the last part of our two week vacation in Tanzania. The service we received at the hotel was excellent considering we were part of a large group of 24 people. We were welcomed with the warm friendly hospitable staff. This hotel is right on the ocean and close to Slip Way shopping area and about 30 minutes into town depending on traffic. Once we checked in and got settled, we headed straight for the restaurant to feed our hungry children. The restaurant sits right on ocean. The food was amazing and fresh! The menu had a something for everyone to choose from. We stayed in the Bahiria Suite which is suited for couples only. The room was spacious, clean and accommodating. I would like to personally thank Rishi and all his staff for really going out of their way in making sure our demands were met. The Best Western Coral Beach really is a great place to stay when you are in Dar-es-Salam! Thanks again.

Really enjoyed our stay here, the property has a perfect location right on the beach with easy access to town and Masaki nightlife. The rooms are very practical, clean, great beds, and have terrific ocean views. The property landscaping is beautiful and makes you feel relaxed with a nice ocean breeze at all times. The beach bar is great for sun downers! Highly recommend this hotel for those looking for oceanfront and close to evening activities.

"Very nicely situated but poorly run"

22/06/2018

The venue has a lovely location on the bay with well located beach theme bar and restaurant. The accommodation had been booked through work who had also informed them about my wheat allergy. Nothing was mentioned at check in about no superior sea view being available. I went back to comment that my sea view looked remarkably like a stone wall, the receptionist shrugged his shoulders and said there were none available in the manner of someone who would be marginally more interested in the speed at which the grass was growing than my irrelevant question. Next i found that my safe did not work, eventually a nice maintenance chap turned up to fix it, took the batteries out and was never seen again, who needs a safe anyway, we are all friends here. In transpired that the TV and half the lights didn't work but by now I had decided to divert my attentions to the considerably more amenable beach bar. The shower, by the way, is cunning, the hot and cold are back to front which I eventually realised after much scratching of my head (explains the receding hairline). Lastly I commented at the conference the next day that all three snacks were covered in wheat, about ten minutes later a very charming waiter bought me my own personal plate of different snacks.....wait for it......covered in wheat! Clearly a concerted effort to knock me off here. Anyway I've stayed in worse and I've stayed in much much better. One odd thing that struck me was that a considerable proportion of the staff appear to bear a badge which described them as management, maybe too many chiefs and not enough Indians.....

"Nice hotel, incompetent staff"

2
20/06/2018

The hotel itself is very nice. Rooms are big and the property is located right by the water, with palm trees and other summery decor adding to a relaxed atmosphere in the outside areas like the bar or the restaurant. My only gripe, and this is a big one, is the staff. Here's why: 1) We ordered a hotel shuttle pickup from the airport and even confirmed it two days before arrival. Driver didn't show up for 40+ minutes "because of traffic". 2) We had booked a deluxe room with a balcony and ocean view. The room we actually got had no balcony, no ocean view. After I mentioned this to the front desk staff, she told me that someone hadn't checked out in time which is why the deluxe room intended for us would be blocked. Next day, going back to the front desk there was quite some confusion and since we had to head out we didn't end up packing up for a room change. Result: Someone else got that one special deluxe room that day. After complaining a total of 3 times about the room, we gave up. 3) We asked a shuttle driver from the hotel to bring us to a spot which was 15 min drive away. Regarding cost, the driver said "we'll see once we get there". Once we arrived, he wanted to rip us off. It's quite sad if you can't even trust the hotel staff. To top it all off, the driver didn't have GPS which is why we had to tell him the directions each step of the way. So there you have it. Hotel is nice with good amenities. Staff, however, is incompetent and tries to rip you off. I won't be back.

"Nice hotel. Bit too businesslike"

10/06/2018

The hotel was lovely. Welcome drinks of juice and a cold towel which was a lovely touch. We were escorted to our room which was equally as nice with a king size bed and nice big bathroom with shower/bath. We were given bottled water every day and everything we needed or wished for was there such as shampoo, conditioner, towels and dressing gowns, tea and coffee etc. The hotel has a private beach, which was more like a terrace that they covered in sand which wasn't very nice but the pools was lovely (does need a bit of de-bugging though as there were centipedes at the bottom as well as other insects). The hotel is also too business orientated so I didn't feel comfortable being there. Nice area but not much to do.

Very good location. The place is stunning. The swimming pool and the view to the ocean on the deck is amazing. The idea of having dinner at the deck is the best. The rooms are huge and very clean. The only big challenge here is the high humidity level but with their good air condition service, there is no stress.

This is a beautiful relaxing hotel in Dar Es Sallem. I would highly recommend it as a place to unwind. I did just this for two days in March after a very busy months work. The wet had just begun and the weather was dreadful but that did not stop me enjoying the hotel, the staff, and the pool. I remember the wonderful service at the pool bar from Zolan, and Rehema and Salim in reception. Thanks so much. Just wish I could have stayed longer and in the sunshine.

20/05/2018

Very sad that an international hotel group would not maintain and upgrade the level of the room quality. Dirty, grimy plug switches. Broken window mosquito netting. Filthy shower floors. Regular forgetfulness for such basic tick box items such as the coffee/milk/sugar for the room. You are lucky if you get the full compliment - I kept getting decaffeinated coffee sachets. Despite asking two morning and a row. I was very very disappointing with this hotel, The staff are as cheerful and as best accommodating as they can be, but their holding company, owners and responsible people for ensuring that what the guest pays for is ultimately delivered are letting down a truly great team of staffers. (I marked it mid-range below as that the only real choice, although at those prices and for that quality it is anything but mid-range in price)

"Great location...rooms could be better"

19/05/2018

This hotel is located directly on the water; there's a lovely pool but no beach. It's in a quiet setting and a quick ride away from restaurants & shops on the peninsula. PROS: - very friendly staff - relaxing ambiance - good breakfast buffet - Western style with a decent variety - complimentary shuttle bus anywhere in the peninsula CONS - a/c in the rooms had to be left on 24/7. If they weren't, the a/c would leak water leaving giant puddles. Not so great for the environment... - the rooms ALWAYS felt damp, even with the a/c on all the time - they do not advertise the complimentary shuttle bus; you have to ask for it. Otherwise reception will happily go about booking their overpriced taxi for you for a 5 minute ride down the road (I'd walk but definitely not at night) This hotel was okay; options in the peninsula are somewhat limited. If we were to come back to Dar, we'd probably look for another hotel at this price point first before deciding to stay here again.

I just experienced possibly the best customer service. We had a 5-day workshop at the Best Western Coral Beach Hotel. During the workshop we were provided with snacks and lunch buffet from “The Beach Club”. The food was amazing, to die for. We were offered a variety of items throughout the week. Every item was so delicious with a unique taste. Eduardo, the Manger has great customer service. He was so efficient and pleasant to meet our needs. He was warm, welcoming , very professional, and extremely helpful. I was fasting and he got my lunch packed for me. I must say, he is an asset to the Company. The overall hospitality was one of a kind. Great ambience with breathtaking views of the ocean, amazing service, beautiful scenery, and superb food!

"Not to recommend unless desperate"

1
12/05/2018

I checked in for a weekend of relaxation. It was anything but. I'm a resident in Tz and used to a glossy exterior and customer service lacking but this hotel took the biscuit. Pitting itself in a ‘not-abysmally-expensive-but-not-cheap' at $130 per night category, you expect a little bit of consideration towards the customer. Not here. After check in I eventually got situated in a reasonable room and was left in the dark as the power went off. Literally only in my room. Now I'm used to power cuts but this wasn't a usual Tenasco fiasco but a room issue. An electrician came & turned it on (a short in the room apparently) and I hit the shower lovingly thinking of food and a glass of wine. I could have had more than I had bargained for. The bar was quiet and like a lonely traveller triangle, there were three singles - me and two men. We didn't speak and that's fine as I have Facebook and dislike small talk. Wine goes down well until just starting my second glass, the bar man clearly asks one of the men if he ‘wants female company for the night' and gesticulated towards me. Yes, the man working behind the bar to another customer. I'm a middle aged poker faced graying teacher who is quite happy being antisocial. How insulting do you want to be? So much for solo women traveling care - well done Best Western. I retired for the night feeling very uncomfortable and decided to order room service. Don't order room service. Just don't. Unless you like fiercely microwaved pasta that's obviously seen better days smothered in cling film and plonked down because you are obviously inconveniencing room service. How dare I? It was truly bad and she wasn't up to discuss it so I gave up (I can stand to lose a couple of pounds) and put the dirty dishes outside, where they sat til I asked reception to move them at 9.30am on the way back from breakfast (disappointing when the waiter doesn't know the difference between tea and coffee). After half a dozen ‘shorts' and no electric for 90% of my morning, several visits to reception and the promise of another room not materializing, I wasn't super happy. I wanted a shower and to charge my phone - neither achievable due to no one bothering to do anything constructive. The final straw was being kicked out of the room to stand on the balcony whilst the fumigation man fumigated the whole room, my bag, it's contents and my flip flops. Even when I asked him to leave this process til I'd left. At this point I gave up. I'm heading home which is about 5 hours away a day early as it will be more productive to be in rural Tz where I know and thoroughly expect no electric and an abundance of hard living. Having spoken to the manager, who comped me my 2 glasses of wine and soggy pasta thing, I can cheerfully say he is aware of the issues. He walked in as the girl at the travel desk was happily watching YouTube vids - says it all really. I cannot recommend this hotel whatsoever. All were insignificant complaints but put them together and it makes for a truly uncomfortable stay that is absolutely not worth $130 dollars. Or the discomfort. Or the frustration. Disappointing.

"Only one downside"

03/04/2018

We recently stayed here on the 26th and 27th of March we had a short Tanzanian honeymoon as we came to celebrate our recent marriage with family in Tanzania. We have stayed at a few hotels in Dar like the Double tree Hilton, White Sands, Slip way, Harbor view suites and this hotel has definitely been the best for us. The room we stayed in was beautiful, clean, gad a partial see view. It was a pity we were not notified before hand that the pool would be closed due to maintenance, because it is a bug reason why we booked there. The restaurant was on their own private beach area which is beautiful. We loved having dinner there, it was breathtaking. The food is quite expensive like most of the restaurants in Dar. But our meals were good. The only thing I was really unhappy with is the drinks prices. It is daylight robbery!! My husband is Tanzania and we know the prices if drinks in the liquor store. In the liquor store a savanna dry cider is 3500 Tanzania shillings and every restaurant we went to sold them for 4000 except this hotel that sold them for 8000. A single amarula was 5000 and a bottle is just over 30 000 in the liquor store and a bottle contains roughly 30 tods. It is just ridiculous and over the top. You should not be exploiting people because you think they have money. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return but rather consider not having a drink at all.

In the middle of our two week trip to Tanzania, haven given up on finding anything interesting tasting here, we tried finding decent «continental» food. Had a tasteless Spaghetti Bolognese, the pasta was mediocre at best. My girlfriend tried a burger, it arrived somewhere between lukewarm and cold, tasted next to nothing, the avocado was delicious and for once she was glad the cheese was placed on top of the avocado, not on the burger patty itself. Its easier to remove if its not melted. It tasted fish. Strange. Then there was a couple of larger parties with kids sitting next to us. So we ended up having 3 kids running past our table on both sides playing and being noisy, we told them to stop a couple of times, but they didnt listen. So I flagged down the manager and made my complaint, but that only led to the waiters and managers talking over at their end. At last my girlfriend raised her voice enough so the kids parents halfhearted asked them to not run past us. After this our waiter stopped smiling at us, clearly we are not so welcome here.

"Horrible management"

20/03/2018

I stayed at Coral Beach for three nights and there was heavy rain one evening. The room I was staying was close to the corridors and there was water coming from the side. My room was flooded and I literally stayed in water. I went to the reception 5 in the morning and inform them if the situation. I have to wait outside for long before they clean the room and and they finally changed my room at around 10:00 am. I spoke with the manager on duty (RISH) and the response he gave me was very disappointing. He never bothered to listen to my complaint let alone do something. The people at reception were very good except this manager, who has zero customer service experience. I will never go to that place again.

First time there I was hey nice scenery, I am going to bring my friends here. So I bring my friends for a birthday. Couldn't wait to document it through STILL pictures of my DSLR but just after one shot (it was late at Night I must say), 2 waiters come to us to tell us that's against the policy. That we can use phone cameras but not BIG cameras. WHY? Because we will disturb people. The angle we were at was not occupied with any other person, I explained to which I was told you will have to pay to be allowed.  Ok!!! So we can use big cameras if we pay because then the payment covers for the disturbance? REALLY???? Unbelievable. It is 2018. It's no wonder I haven't seen content creators coming your way. I kept asking myself why such a good place isn't as popular... but now I get it. Oh and PS: Your waiters need to know to serve a GROUP all at once. Not in batches because they wouldn't have come as a group if that's what they wanted.

Staff are as mostly in Tanzania very nice and customer service oriented. Very nice bar/lounge perfect for sunset drink. Again very nice staff. Food is ok but rather expensive for what it is and comparing places around, but you eat in your hotel so fair enough. Breakfast is ok, buffet style and egg station. Very good location in that poch area of Masaki. Over all highly recommended

The Hotel is ideally situated and the deluxe rooms are both very spacious and comfortably fitted. The views from the rooms are amazing and they were no discernible noise disturbances. The Wi-Fi works flawlessly and the reception staff were very cordial. My main issue was that they didn't seem to have a dry cleaning service - just normal washing and Ironing of items was left to me because of the Iron and Ironing Board set up in the room. I would have preferred having access to an Ironing service. The breakfast set up was ok but I believe there could have been more variety.

Very, very gentle staff - very nice and clean hotel - the view to the ocean was wonderfull and beautyfull. There were parties in the outside restaurants both evenings with music from more than one place at a time!! If the MENU says "Pasta with Mozzarella and fresh basil" it is not good enough to use Parmezan and dry mint!!!!!

The hotel is set up next to the beach and in the suburb of Dar es salaam. From the door man to the front office team and housekeeping, all the staff are welcoming with a smile. Special thanks to Joseph - front office, Rehema - front office (my new friend in dar), Irene - Front office (asante sana) and Stella - housekeeping. These staff are a gem to the hotel well done for the good customer service. My room was overlooking the beautiful ocean and had a balcony. This was an upgrade thanks to Rehema. Amenities ok though can do better. Water in shower hot, clean bed sheets and towels. In general room was very clean daily and the amenities replaced daily. One down side, the mini bar was leaking need to be checked. Food is average the menu needs to be upgraded but the bar snacks are in generous portion. The outside bar very relaxing overlooking the ocean and the hotel made a private beach for hotel guests very nice set up I must say. Used the gym well equipped though the trainer is not always there to assist. The pool is clean and the area relaxing. There is a sauna but unfortunately didn't use it as there are operational times. All in all had a wonderful experience and would go back. I would also recommend the hotel to visiting guests. Keep it up !

"Nice hotel let down by too many issues"

17/11/2017

Overall, disappointing. The booking process is terrible and feedback from front office staff and reservation staff is non-existent. I was promised a response within one day of checking out...... i am still waiting, more than 2 weeks later. The room was nice, the bed clean and comfortable. Breakfast was satisfactory, as it should be from a Best Western Hotel. Dinner was a huge disappointment. The Red Snapper was very good and beautifully cooked, the tuna was a disaster, being seriously overcooked. Salim was extremely helpful and eventually removed the item from the bill but I would honestly have preferred to get a properly cooked piece of tuna and paid for it. Lunch the next day was a little better but not much. The Snapper that was ordered amazingly turned into Nile Perch and the 36,000 shillings fish dish was converted into a 40,000 shillings catch of the day that was identical. No advice, no notice and a small blackboard appeared from nowhere with 40,000 SPECIALS on it. Why the same dish should cost 4,000 more on a Sunday lunchtime I have no idea. The lunch took more than one hour to arrive, with Salim explaining that he saw some overcooked fish and ordered fresh. Two meals, both overcooked? And not detected by the chef? I think is time to replace your chef. This is East Africa, surely any half decent chef can cook a piece of fish properly. Mind you, this is not the first time I have experienced overcooked food. On two occasions I have ordered medium steaks to be served seriously well done steaks. Time for a change I think.

Wonderful stay with very pleasant staff. The food is absolutely gorgeous with lot of fish, shrimp and calamari. The most pleasant experience is the hospitable and courteous staff always smiling. The rooms are reasonably large and are in different blocks. I had a room with a view but some rooms do not have a view of the yachting bay. Those who love it have to go to the bay port for sailing and kayaking. You could hire a boat as well.

"Fantastic location, very substandard quality"

26/11/2016

The hotel is situated just by the ocean with a fantastic, sandy terrass with natural shade provided by the palm trees. The pool and bar area is also very nice with lots of green and shade and nice furniture for sitting and working or a fantastic spot for sun downers. Decent sized and clean pool. Rooms are of nice size and most (all?) facing the ocean. But: ACs are so noisy (old) that it is impossible to have them on at night. Rooms without AC during night and un-efficieny of ACs when turned on in combination with the Dar-climate reuslt in rooms, pillows, duvets and everything that has been in the room stinking of mold. The door to my room had 2-3 cm space between door and floor resulting in loud noice from the corridor. Food is rather expensive and not very good. Service at the reception desk is far from perfect, almost every time I passed the reception there was a group of people having some kind of discussion with the staff. our group also had misunderstandings and orders being forgotten.

"Good quality but it can be better for money"

25/11/2016

It is an amazing hotel, very high quality, close to America and European standards. However, if you pay USD 190 per room per night, you expect a bit more... The rooms are very spacious, good bed and Internet, however the airlines leaks and the bathroom could have been maintained a bit better. Being in Africa and reaching that quality is good, great view of the bay and the food is ok.

"Average Long stay"

13/11/2016

While this may be an idyllic setting and the most of the staff are brilliant their quality control is severely lacking and they need to work on this. The fact that sometimes you get great service and sometimes you get really bad service is not appealing to someone who wants a long stay and uses the hotel for many services.

position is nice - pay attention to the rooms: some are very nice, some are noisy (for instance near the elevators) and/or very humid (the floor was completely wet). Restaurant has a very limited menu and is more expensive and of lower level that other restaurants in the area such as Capetown Fish Market or the one at Slipway. Personnel is very friendly

"Good hotel and staff with big comfy rooms"

25/10/2016

Nice feel to the place overall, good holiday vibe to it in a kind of hacienda way, not too modern and cold, but warm and authentic feeling. That is except for the restaurant which is not that appealing nor is the food they produce. The staff are fantastic though and the room was massive with a lovely large balcony, bed and the biggest TV I've ever had in a hotel room. Only small issue was the fridge was not even plugged in and I had to take it out the cabinet and plug it in next to the bed myself. I'm sure the staff would have sorted if I asked though, but this should have been set up before check in. The only big fail overall were the cocktails from the bar. I honestly had the worst long Island ice tea of my life here. But the setting of the bar and the bar itself was pleasant. Overall I recommend it. It's great value for Dar and especially oyster bay. For business or pleasure it should more than satisfy you

A good choice in Dar es Salaam - great views and location. I would stay here again. Rooms are average and given the climate can be stuffy - I found opening the door and running the AC a bit sorted that. Bathrooms are OKish and soap and towels etc can be better but the staff and the food at the beach restaurant and the views make up for that. Make sure you check out early - the online process takes a while.

15/10/2016

In summary, at checkout I found out I could have stayed in the new block with great rooms. And then it hit me that I might have been profiled and put in the oldest and worst. I'm never going back... 1. I never got picked up from the airport and this didn't come up even once during check in. 2. I was put into a stinky room and when I asked to be move, I was told to run the AC and open the door and all should be okay. Well I tried this but this didn't help. Turns out the smell comes from the Bathroom. Which I found out when I tried to take a bath. 3. Tried to take a bath but the water was lukewarm... towels were really old and the stench was overwhelming 4. When I woke up in the morning the AC was broken, water everywhere. I informed reception before I left for my meetings but when I came back nothing had been done, apparently I'd missed the room service window. so I insisted and got move to another room .... 5. Now in Room 103 ...The stench was so bad... Breakfast was terrible, room service just terrible. I've been to over 20 hotels in Dar and this one is definitely alt+deleted

The staff are efficient and very pleasant and helpful. They've made a few changes in the grounds in the last couple of years and it's all looking lovely.

The food was lovely. I ate from the menu rather than from the buffet. For such good food I was surprised that it wasn't fuller. My room would have been very pleasant had the aircon not be discharging its water to a huge puddle in the room, which gave a damp feeling to the room. This is the only reason I am critical.

You can see the sea from most of the rooms and the balcony on your room is big enough so that you can lie back and relax on the lounger. Everything is clean and neat with a distinctly openness feel putting one at ease and feeling like you are on vacation as soon as you arrive. This was a short business trip for me and wished that I could have spent a few days just relaxing in the peaceful environment.

Stunning views, good location on the peninsula, great spacious rooms. Also, very good Indian food and seafood. Good service by staff. Very pleasant all in all. My only recommendation would be to improve the location of the gym from the basement to a point with a seaview.

This hotel has one of the best spots in Dar, with some stunning views. Most rooms also have balconies from which to watch the tides go up and down while sipping on something. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are spacious. The only thing lacking was on the quality of the food, but this is true for most hotels in DES. My recommendation is to stay here, but have your meals somewhere else.

I stayed at the Coral Beach for just over a week when I first arrived to the country. I found the location fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful. I was first given a room on the first floor towards the back as the hotel was full. I asked to move rooms and as soon as they were available I was moved to a gorgeous room on a higher floor with full ocean views. The staff at reception were helpful and proactive. The hotel is great for business and relaxation. I will definitely recommend it.

I have stayed here a couple of times and the location over looking the bay, the warmth and kindness of the staff and the waterfront bar mean I will continue to stay here on future trips. The hotel itself is of a decent standard, clean and comfortable with good size rooms/bathrooms. Food is excellent (Mauritian chefs) and prices for food and drinks are very reasonable. There is a small gym in the basement which is good enough for a short break. Finally, I reiterate, the staff to a man and woman are delightful - cannot fault their service and general demeanour.

This place was the place I stayed when moving to Tanzania and the place I left on my last night. We even got to get the exact same room. It was fitting after our 8 months of living here. The room itself is cozy. The bed was great and I like the positioning right in front of the balcony door with views of the bay. The staff was excellent and by far the best part of this whole stay. Very friendly without expecting anything. They were extremely helpful and my wife talks about their kindness all the time. My only compliant is the WiFi. From in the room if you stand by the door you could get it. Lay on the bed and it is a different story. If you go make sure to see the turtles. They are cute especially the babies.

Quite old but well maintained property. Very peaceful location at the further end of the Peninsula. The service worked all fine, only the credit card payment is a bit suspicious process but it was also well done in the end. The views from seaside rooms are very nice, remember to tbook one with a view if it matters to you. All in all a nice 4 star hotel (in my opinion) with reasonable price considering local pricelevel.

I booked 5 days in there but i left in 2nd day fm hotel because; The hotel name is beach hotel, even if i like action but it is almost impossible to swim in there because of rock barrier. The safe box was out of order. One of worker said that they fix it in a day but it is a lie because the safe is out of order fm several weeks (you can check other people comments about safe box). Plus; The room was big. Ocean view is really nice Result; In my opinion the hotel is not cosy, they do not deserve what i paid. If their rates can be under 120usd then i can start to think that i can stay again at the hotel.

"I will never recommend to stay at this hotel!"

24/04/2016

I stayed at this hotel twice this year (2016); first was on January and second was on early April. On Jan they gave me a room in the old building - the bathroom smells like sewage. The next one on April, I came quite late (after a long travel day continued with meeting) and expected to have a room to rest. When my colleagues and I arrived, they looked confused when we mentioned about our request (including to stay in the new building and for me to have double bed); have to wait for almost an hour!! Long story short, they finally put me in a room with twin bed (!) in new building (the only double bed left was in the old building). When I entered the room, there was water puddles close to the door; I called room service, they cleaned it and said they don't know why it happened. What made it even worse, when I woke up in the morning, the whole floor was covered with water (dew like); my baggage, clothes which I put outside was wet as well. I was pretty lucky to watch my step when I awake so I did not slip on a wet floor. I called the manager to my room and showed him what has happened. It might because of their air conditioning system did not work well. I was furious and told him if I caught in any respiratory infection (because I slept in high humidity room) I will sue the hotel. When I finally checked out I refused to pay the amount they charged me and only agreed to pay $100 - I can get a better hotel with the same location and surely cheaper than this one! The manager apologized and would like to give me a compliment for the next visit. No thank you, Sir, I will never stay or suggest friends to stay in this hotel. It does not worth the amount we spent!!

Glynis12311, Manager at BEST WESTERN Coral Beach Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Dewindra W My sincerest apologies for not having met your expectations during your and your colleagues recent stay with us. Unfortunately due to the high humidity in Dar and on the Peninsula in particular at this time of year, being the rainy season, we have been experiencing issues with humidity gathering in some of our guest rooms. After intensive consultation with experts in this field, we believe that we have come up with a resolution to this issue. We are in the process of implementing measures to alleviate the humidity levels in the affected bedrooms. It should be noted that the air conditioning system was not the cause, but the high humidity level, due to our being situated right on the beach. Once again my apologies for the humid weather in Dar, which was also the cause of our reception staff and management having to move guests from affected rooms. Should you wish to contact me directly, you are welcome to call me on +255 68 868 7973. Thank you Kind regards Glynis

hotel staff were pleasant. First room given to me had mouldy musty smell to it.. so asked to change the room which was done. the second room that was given to me, the safe cupboard wasn't working. i went to use the toilet there were worms in the water. they disappeared after flushing but reappeared few hours later. second time complained to the hotel. they couldn't do much. the swimming pool was dirty with lots of debris at the bottom of the pool and leaves floating on top. it wasn't very poor value for money. I was booked to stay here a week later but canceled.to go another hotel. the beds were very uncomfortable and sagged in the middle.

I was pleasantly surprised by the very service oriented atmosphere at the hotel, from restaurant staff, trainer at the gym, reception, all the way up to the General Manager. It's a nice location, very convenient to Slipway and SeaCliff shopping areas; breakfast buffet is decent; and internet connection was consistent throughout my stay! Would definitely recommend!

I stayed her recently with three colleagues. The hotel and location are lovely. One of my rooms had a fantastic view and the beachfront is very attractive. However, we had continuing issues with not being able to lock our doors or getting locked out of our rooms. The staff changed our rooms multiple times. One colleague had 3 rooms in four nights. I changed mine twice--you get the picture. The staff were friendly but seemed quite relaxed and just had to keep coming to let us in or help us lock the doors. It appeared to be a battery problem. Finally, the restaurant, which served us breakfast each morning was mediocre. I had hoped for better food and far better coffee.

I very much enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The ambiance was superb and the suite magnificent. I particularly enjoyed the Nyama Choma buffet, but overall the food was excellent. Thanks for a wonderful Easter weekend retreat. My only suggestion is that the shower heads be soaked periodically in vinegar to clear the calcium deposits.

The hotel has a perfect location in a quiet neighbourhood. Enjoyed my three days in dar es salaam. The food was great. On arrival was given a room whose drainage was not working thus had to be changed into another room. I had booked for an ocean facing room, but this was not what I was given. Since i checked in late, i was too tired to complain. I expected more from Best Western!

"Nice setting and food. Hotel rooms and service need work. "

This hotel has a nice view, pretty grounds and a good restaurant. As other reviewers mentioned, you can't access the ocean from this hotel, but it has a nice pool (a bit small but it didn't get busy while I was there) and a sandy "beach" area with lounges. They have a decent gym with an elliptical, bike, and treadmill as well as weights. The rooms and service are the biggest area needing improvement. My first room was bright and spacious with dated decor and a door that wouldn't lock and the wifi was spotty. They moved me to a room in the newer building in the basement which was quite dark and had a safe that didn't work and that no one could fix. Because of the humidity, there was mold growing on the desk chair. The wifi was better but the tv had different channels than in the main building and none in English. The front desk staff, while friendly, weren't very helpful and when presented with a question or concern never knew how to handle it. I was there for meetings on the premises and they were often late with setting up tea breaks. Overall, I would look elsewhere before staying here again.

Dear dctravel123 Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. All our guests comments are very important to us, as we strive to provide consistently excellent service, tasty meals, clean and comfortable bedrooms and in general ensure that our guests enjoy a comfortable and peaceful stay with us. During the rainy season we do experience high humidity, which may cause the safe locks to cause problems and for which we apologise. The high humidity, over which we have no control whatsoever, is caused by our being situated immediately on the beach, which, in turn, allows our guests to enjoy not only beautiful views, but also the most spectacular sunsets in Dar. We are, however, looking at various methods of solving this issue. We do have a manager on duty 24 hours a day to assist our guests with any problems that may arise. We are also in the process of upgrading our Hotel and I am sure that you will notice significant changes should you visit our Hotel again in the future. With kind regards, Glynis

"Weekend getaway"

08/02/2016

Best Western Coral Beach advertises itself as a 'boutique' hotel. It is a very good way of looking at this fine place. My wife and I have stayed here in the past (about 2.5 years ago at Christmas). Management has changed since. The past was not bad. Yet, the new management is trying hard, and it shows in the outcome. If you are looking for beach hotel so you can run on the beach in the morning or evening look elsewhere. Even the morning and evening photo shots are not there. What is there is a quaint hotel with clean rooms next to the yacht club with a great staff. The food is good also. Our first stay we got a normal room. That's fine if you are just staying to do other things in the area. This time,mbecause we wanted to get away and enjoy our time at the hotel, we got a suite. It was not a bad idea. The room was clean and well accommodating. We loved the balcony overlooking the bay. While there at the hotel there was a barbecue and beach band. Both were well done experiences without being overdone. I would rate the band and talented and sedate (meaning not hiding their inability in loudness). The meals were we had for the four days there were all good. Plus we went out one lunch and one dinner to nearby places that were good also. My wife and I will come back. We are talking about Christmas of this year doing this again. If I were looking for anything bad to write,Mathe drain in the bathroom sink ran slow. That's it! I hope others find this hotel in such good form as we did. It is one little boutique secret in Dar.

We enjoyed a night at this lovely hotel. It is really beautifully decorated. We were lucky to have a suite which had a bath and big shower. The room was large, with a balcony which we enjoyed. The wifi was very good! The pool area is pretty, and there is a beach area too. The staff were efficent and friendly. I am looking forward to returning.

The views are extravagant. Atmosphere great! Have to keep focus if you are there on business. Hospitality and sevice is great! Had a morning coffee on the beach. Late afternoon around the pool enjoying the sunset. Dragged myself away in the mornings for business and completely unwind at night. An absolutely MUST-STAY!!! For business or leisure.

The hotel property is situated on the seafront with beautiful views of the yachts and the sea from both the rooms ( ask for a balcony) and the dinner/bar area. The gym is situation in a type of dungeon but there are ample equipment for a quick workout - prepare to sweat!! The breakfast is ok , very standard but acceptable. The rooms are nice and big with free wifi ( fairly strong signal) . Small hotel with nice views, nice rooms, good service and not too high prices! Its close to the SeaCliff hotel where there is a casino and two good restaurants

Beautifully located on the coast with sun-set view over yacht club and north Dar-es-Salaam. The rooms are very nice and those with balcony has great views. However, it does not have a private beach - it only a coral rock tidal basin so the only option for a swim is the pool.

I have stayed at many hotels in Dar es Salaam and find myself requesting only the Coral Beach now! The staff are super-friendly, super-efficient, the rooms are big and nicely appointed, comfortable and clean. I feel safe and welcome at the Coral Beach - much more so than at some of the other (and mostly more expensive!) Hotels in Dar. Really is a great hotel!

"Right on the beach"

I have stayed at this hotel since I began travelling to Tanzania in 2011. It has come a long way since then with excellent management, renovations and some experience from a catering point-of-view. The restaurant on the beach provides for a relaxing meal at sunset with the gentle lapping of waves just over the coral retaining wall. The Seashorse Bar is excellent after a long hot day. The hotel is well located away from the CBD and the area has many interesting places nearby. Examples are the Sea Cliff Hotel and Casino, the Yacht Club, Cape Town Fish Market and the famous (or infamous) George and Dragon. All in all, always a good place to stay in Dar es Salaam.

"Nice environments, great service, room not 4 stars"

4
06/12/2015

This hotel is situated nicely at the Indian ocean at Oyster Bay, a peninsular close to, but off the hectic and terrible place that Dar can be. It is very close to the Slipway (shopping and dining) complex. The room I stayed in (304) was spacious but showed the first signs of wearing off and it definatelly looked better on the photos online. Also, some of the toiletries were only available by asking at the reception, and shower gel, e.g. came in bottles screwed to the walls, which gave a sort of greedy feeling. In comparison, Protea Courtyard (3 stars) has smaller, but much more nicely decorated rooms and better toiletries. So, as for the rooms, I would rate this place 3 stars only. The rest of the hotel however is nice, well kept and the inside is decorated with a touch of arabic/Zanzibar influence. It does not have the impersonal, cold feeling many other business places (e.g. Tanzanite Executive Suites) have. The outside environment is really nice and has a great view of the ocean. The pool is small but a welcome refreshment in the Dar heat. Be aware that the announced beach is artificial and there is no direct access to the Indian Ocean. As for the restaurant, it was worth the price, the breakfast menu was typical for a 4* place and had decent coffee. What mentions an extra comment was the superb service. On my last night they tried out a new barbecue buffet and the chef personally asked me if I was content with the selection and the quality. Also the revenue manager personally enquired about my assessment. Even more so, the receptionists were really friendly, helpful, organized cabs for me, and one of them even took the extra effort to scan the whole city for a specific local football jersey I wanted to bring home for a Tanzanian friend but could not find in the shopping malls.

"Expected more"

09/11/2015

I stayed at the Best Western Coral Beach for 2 nights and although this is your typical business hotel, I expected more. I think the wing we were on has seen better days and one could see the signs of wear and tear on the amenities. Room service (a basic Club Sandwich) took forever and was bland at best, my room floor was constantly damp (not sure whether from a leaking fridge or the AC), the beddings were somewhat frayed and one got the distinct feeling that while the room had no visible signs of dirt, it wasn't clean after all. I have to give them the great views of the ocean- that was something I was always happy to get home too. After all is said and done though, if given a choice, It is unlikely I will return.

We recently stayed at the Best Western Coral Beach Hotel at the start of a 10 day visit to Tanzania and Zanzibar. An unexpected treat. We had upgraded to a sea facing room which was clean and very comfortable with a nicely designed working area. The hotel strikes an easy balance between business and leisure. The pool deck, bar and beach area overlook the bay. Altogether a pleasant and romantic setting especially when local musicians are playing. Nice open plan reception area with helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended, good value.

"We were disappointed"

03/10/2015

This hotel was recommended to us and we arrived late in the evening.After much deliberation, due to the steep price, we opted for a suite.We needed some pampering after camping for 6 weeks.The room was beautiful with amazing views, but soon all the problems started. No hot water -- the technician came soon enough but disappeared again -- no one advised us when the water will be hot. We really wanted a hot shower but had to go to bed without it. The pillows were very hard -- I phoned reception to request softer ones and I am still waiting for them. The next morning we wanted to iron our clothes and the iron didn't work -- we wanted to lock our valuables away and the safe didn't work either! Our intention was to stay for 3 nights but we checked out the next morning. We discussed all of this with the staff at reception but the matter wasn't even referred to a manager. What a disappointment! The dinner was excellent but breakfast not that great. Such a pity because the setting of this hotel is amazing.

I cannot fault this hotel. Very good value for money in relation to what else is available, excellent location and great customer service. Rooms are clean, well air-conditioned and mine had a good view of the bay. A major irritation however was the television service. Really poor quality programming, many channels not working, no major sporting events. Just terrible, really. Would have preferred DStv... And finally, I did not appreciate being harassed at the cocktail bar by a "lady of the night" in full view of the wait staff. Seems it just the norm... Anyway, it made me uncomfortable and I left and went to enjoy my drink in my room. In peace. On that note, the mini-bar is crazy expensive. $3 for a packet of crisps?? All said and done, I would go back.

I stayed in the main part of the hotel and the rooms were very clean and well maintained with good facilities. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Also used the hotel gym which has an acceptable range of treadmills and equipment including free weights and an instructor who was helpful in setting up unfamilair equipment and also seemed happy to do impromptu boxing drills. Food was also very good and well presented, with lots of fresh fruit. My only disappointment was the 'beach'. The hotel site says it has a private beach, and it does have a nice sandy strip with chairs and umbrellas and a lovely view over the water - but there's no access to the actual water. It was frustrating to be next to the ocean but unable to go in it. Also have to say the Wifi was very patchy. Sometimes good, mostly not, and requiring multiple re-connections to do anything. It was free but I would happily pay for a better service.
