“Lovely Property, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

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).

Room Tip: This is only a two story hotel. Ask for a second story room, which has better views of the sea.

We spend a couple of days with 3 kids in the Beach comber. Had a suite and added matresses in the frontroom which got us a good rate.
A great place to relax, go to the beach and play some Volleyball or have a nice dinner as well.
Lots of local visitors might disturb the piece for some Guests that look for the total relaxation, but if you have a pulse, its worth it!

Dar Es Salaam is not one of my favourite cities. For much of the day it is one big traffic jam that makes the M25 at its busiest look easy.
However a few kilometres north of the centre is the Beachcomber Hotel, Conference Centre and Resort. This is typical of many such resorts around the world, but for Tanzania this has good facilities, a nice pool, an decent dining - East African style. A bonus is to be able to step from the pool on to the hot clean white sands of the Indian Ocean.
The service is up to 3/4 star standard. Free wi-fi is available in rooms, restaurants and public areas.
I would recommend for a short conference venue, or if you want get away from the traffic and nondesriptness of Dar Es Salaam.
