Great hotel - location, food and most importantly staff are the reason I will always stay at Coral beach. Spent 5 weeks at this hotel for work since November 2013 on 3 different trips. Will not stay anywhere else in Dar Special thanks goes out to Fanuel, Arthur, Frederick, Gabriel, Smittesh, Shedrack, Steven, and Ravindra. All truly make the stay wonderful each and every time. See you soon. Mr. Bradford

We came from a resort south of Dar and was staying here for 1 1/2 day. Welcome was very good, helpful staff. Nice and clean rooms, large room, comfy bed. We had dinner at the resturant at the hotel, and that was 15 on a scale from 1 to 10

I stayed at this property for 5 days on a business trip to Dar.

The place was lovely from the rooms to the dining experience to the friendly staff.

What I loved most was the dining experience at the seafront and the lovely balconies in the room.

Only disadvantage was the travel time from Dar city center to the hotel which was 1.5hrs in the famous Dar evening traffic.

Very nice experience, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Good hotel whit a nice sea view and the location is safe. The Ngalawa restaurant, inside the hotel, is very nice, and the food is excellent.

With the compliments to the staff, in particular to Smitesh, Allen and Ramadhani for the restaurant, and Fanuel and Frederick for the reception.

I have stayed in many hotels over the last few years, and I must admit my experience at the Coral Beach was one of the best that I have had. The staff were all very friendly and very helpful. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable and the overall experience was one of enjoyment.

I stayed for a business trip at the Coral Beach for three nights. If you have ever been to Dar, you will know how frustrating traffic can be! This is a great location, peaceful and away from downtown but conveniently located so you can still go anywhere you like. It is also close to lots of great restaurants and bars. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They will take care of you in every possible way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. I would highly recommend staying here. Extremely affordable and great service.

Thanks!

The location is safe and beautiful. Friendly Staff. Breakfast is average.
They offered a different room than the one I booked. Next day they offered a different one. After moving to the new room I lost my phone charger somewhere. They tried tracing it but couldn't find.

Trip to airport takes longer duration than you expect due to the bad traffic in the city.
