I had the opportunity to spend two weeks between July and September at the Doubletree while on business in Dar. The staff were so welcoming and some remembered me between visits. The hotel was a great mix of feeling very well cared for in a beautiful setting as well as having experiences one might expect in Tanzania, such as power outages and TV not working. These experience helped me feel less isolated from the realities of the city, which I appreciated. The views on the bay side of the hotel are beautiful and the hotel grounds are elegant.
The breakfast buffet is expansive and delicious. Other meals in the restaurant, on the patio and by the pool were delicious, but service was slow. The poolside seafood pizza was unique and very tasty. Relaxing at the end of the day on the patio to watch the sunset created beautiful memories.
The pool is refreshing, but I wish the pool hours were a little longer, as it was difficult to find time to get there since we were working all day. I appreciated the attentive pool staff who kept it very clean.
We had the option of staying somewhere else for our second week in Dar, but chose the Doubletree since our first week was so good. We were not disappointed.More
