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...

Dear LJSMedfield Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Hotel. I apologise for your and your colleagues door lock issues, which occurred due to the high humidity levels in Dar at this time of the year.

Reviewed 2 April 2016

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...

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...

Wanted a sea breeze and an early evening drink to watch the sunset - so hit upon Coral Beach. Just perfect - comfy seating on a coral white pretend beach, quite spectacular. Prices are higher for the luxury but still not bad.

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....
