I stayed here for 5 days and was very happy with it. I stayed in a room in the main building, with a shared bathroom and shower, and it was great. The room is pretty huge and has a big wardrobe with plenty of shelving and a big comfortable bed with a sensibly-attached box-shaped mosquito net. Breakfast is delicious and they have nice bread made locally (actually hard to find in Tanzania!). The menu is good value for money, with big portions of very well-cooked, tasty food, such as grilled squid and fish curry. The staff are very helpful and well-trained and made my stay very pleasant. Plus Mikindani is a lovely town to walk around in and TDS has a pretty good location within it. Would easily go there again!
