Sunrise Beach Resort
Ranked #79 of 96 Hotels in Dar es Salaam
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Stayed here for 5 days in february and it was great. It was off season so had the whole place to ourselves virtually! We stayed in one of the camps which was simple but reasonably priced. The campsite has its own beach and that was our own for the 5 days. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Just make sure you go prepared with food to cook if that's what you plan to cook. There is an island just opposite which is just 15mins by boat ( Boats are available for hiring ). The island is a great place to explore, we were surprised to see a fresh water well on an island. The island itself has a long history from the slave trade times.
Great place to stay, beautfully chilled would love to go back sometime.

Room Tip: Must experience breakfast on the beach.

I was reading other reviews in this page and I just wondered to see some negative comments ,This is really a paradise , the service was amazing and the food was yummy . The beach frontage is so beautiful and was very clean . The rooms were well maintained and the atmosphere was very calm and cool . I really recommend this hotel when you are in Dar .

This is my favorite hotel so far in Dar es salaam. Service was exceptional. The rooms are sensational and staff are very attentive, Great rooms,view ( just few meters from the ocean ),bed' towels, pillows, tv, and work desk!! Food was fantastic ( try the thermidor lobster dish, just out of the world ) and service with a smile! Beautiful white soft sand that you cant find anywhere else.
Room rate was low for the value!.Since we arrived till we left the hotel we were pampered!!
i could not ask for anything to make my stay any better. Perfect! I can't wait to go back. Located only 30 minutes from the airport..you can't go wrong!!!!

I visited this hotel with my family with the intention of spending a couple of nights.I had heard about the excellent beach frontage,It is true the beach frontage is nice.We however decided to have lunch prior to check in as we had arrived past 2.00pm.Lunch was a la carte,good but our enjoyment was cut short by a lot of cats,under the chairs,tables and some attempting to pounce on the table.It was dissapointing .The waiters heeded our complaints by trying to chase the cats away but they kept on returning.After the meal we decided not to book in this hotel because of the cats menace.

If the service at the restaurant is not enough, the clean sandy beaches overlooking the Indian ocean is just breath taking. Oh yeah, don't forget the food, best tasting fried chicken I ever had while feeling the cool sea breeze and listening to the music from the pool side

We stayed there for the second time as we do when we visit dar es salaam! This time we were shocked! We chose a banda. Standard room! First impression...no water and no soap! Very old towels and in bad condition. Toilet and basin broken! Toilet kept running all the time.Terrible shower with no curtains and water all over the place! Roof and walls with holes so for the 2 nights we could not sleep cause of rats biting the roof and running on it and on the walls. The hole they were biting became bigger in 2 days and u could see the dirt falling on the floor. Room was very dirty i doibt they have cleaned the windows, ceiling, walls, taps and showers since they were built. Staff was a mix... Nice on the first day terrible on the second specially a lady at breakfast time; my husband is TanZanian and she treated him with disrespect!!! It was very sad; he was heartbroken. I did not complain to avoid making a scene but we won't ever go back! There are many other places around so we'll choose somewhere else next time.
