“Perfect hotel for recessing”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

During my Tanzania trip last month, got a chance to stay in Coral beach. Fantastic hotel with spanking service standards. Out view was amazing and i spent a never to be forgotten day with my pals. Being first time in Africa though found it more friendly and closer to saying home away from home. Food was authentic and deliocious. Got a chance to intract with many staffs specially from Asia. Friendly and caring people. I would love to be again in CB with my family for a relaxing & soothing vacation.

This was a very comfortable place to stay in Dar while I was on a work trip. The views were beautiful, rooms clean and staff very friendly. The other part about this hotel I liked was the neighborhood it was in. The peninsula is quiet and it's nice to be able to go for a walk or jog in the evening. This hotel was near my office and was therefore a perfect spot for me while traveling. If you are visiting Dar as a tourist and looking to experience the hustle and bustle of the city, I wouldn't suggest this because you are a bit removed. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay on the peninsula this is a great option.

Room Tip: The rooms on the side of the hotel with a view are much nicer than the ones of the side without.

Coral Beach Hotel is nicely located in a quite and peaceful area and with only a few kilometers to the city center of Dar. If one is organized with transport it is definitely the place to stay. Alternatively can transport easily be coordinated at the reception. The staff is polite and attentive and doing a great job.

The food is nice and well prepared,

I can recommend Coral Beach Hotel to other visitors to Dar, wether it be as tourist, business and seminars

Room Tip: I stayed in room 4109-B and had a fantastic view over the water and the beautiful and exotic garden...

Dear Sir or Madam,
thank you very much for your feedback.
We appreciate your positive comment and yes, as we are located on the Msasani Peninsula, transport via car or Taxi is vital - however, having said that, it applies to all hotels in Dar es Salaam as it is advisable for guest to travel via car.
we look forward welcoming you back.

I stayed there in February 2014 only for one night but it was one of the best hotels we booked in Tanzania. I could find a lot of reasons to love it and fortunately nothing to point out as flaws, so a super stay!
The pros:
- The views
- The breakfast
- Very friendly staff
- Large, clean and well presented rooms

Cons
- Nothing at all :)

My husband and I booked dinner at this wonderful gem of a hotel this year and also booked a room to stay the night.

WOW what a fabulous place to stay. The location is fabulous overlooking the majestic Indian Ocean. The rooms was stunning - we stayed in the delux room. Double shower, Bath in the bedroom. FABULOUS.

Dinner that night was a very romantic night next to the ocean. Violin, Pianist and food that was out of this world.

Breakfast next day was in the airconditioned dining area and had a great selection to satisfy any hungry person.

I would def recommend this great hotel to stay in or to go for dinner.

Room Tip: ask for ocean view and if you can afford it ask for the delux rooms - well worth it

This hotel is right on the coast, is clean and very comfortable. After a long flight, and a hot arrival in Dar, the afternoon relaxing in the pool was wonderful. Would have stayed another day if possible. Dinner service though was very slow, expensive and only average in quality.

Dear Sir or Madam,
thank you very much for your feedback. We appreciate your valued input which allows us to continuously work on improving our service. as far as the food process are concerned, we are in fact cheaper than any comparative choice close to us in this exclusive area of Dar es Salaam and in fact offer better value for money.
Again, thank you for your feedback.
