I booked a room at the Beachcomber en route to the Serengeti. The rate was very good for Dar es Salaam, and after booking the room I contacted the hotel to arrange transportation from the airport. I received a response within hours and the driver was there to meet us at the airport which was a good way to start our trip. The rooms are nice, with a drawstring mosquito net over the beds, and a small balcony. The grounds include a nice pool and a play area for children. There is really not a beach to speak of though, so if you are imagining a long walk in the sand, you will not find it here. Of the two meals we ordered one was good (Goa curry) and one was not (seafood pasta). Breakfast was included and was good, but don't order scrambled eggs - they are powdered. Also, it took us a little over an hour to get there from the airport (we arrived at 4:30 in the afternoon).
