Thank you for helping us host the Third International Conference on Strategic Theory. We received so many complements from delegates and a very strong suggestion from our partner country to return to White Sands for the fourth iteration of the series. The service, friendliness and going out on a limb to help us with receiving and moving the delegates made the work for us as organizers so much easier. The conference facilities were very good and delegates were also impressed with the unusual setup with the different screens.
Regarding the meals, no complaints from the delegates, the conference dinner went so well and the variety was impressive. once more, thanks for all the goodwill and friendliness.

Dear Francois,

Thank you for taking time to write a review on your recent experience at the Hotel White Sands, Resort and Conference Centre. It is very encouraging to hear that we have met and in some areas exceeded your expectations. It was a real pleasure hosting you and the other conference delegates and we would love having you back at the hotel again soon and perhaps you might even consider a leisure visit with your family. I will most definitely share your review with my TEAM and it will certainly encourage them continue delivering high standards of service and quality.

Looking forward to welcoming you back again soon.

It was such a pleasure to stay at White Sands! Impeccable rooms with amazing sea view. Lovely food. Great beach area and for those who prefer to lie next to the pool – just as good. The service was excellent from reception through to restaurant staff. And it’s freshening to experience the new management under which the hotel is – job well done! It is the perfect break-away place and I would recommend anybody to spend some quality time at this beautiful and well-maintained beach hotel!

Have been to Dar many times over the past years on business. For a change I decided to stay outside of city centre. After a long day of rushing around it is a wonderful place to stay and relax and recoupe. Staff were friendly, stay was well organised and when asking for certain things it was never an issue. Internet could have been a little stronger especially if on business but then walking out to relax and take in the view makes it all worth while. Conference facilities look superb and will use these in future as well. Over all my best stay in Tanzania to date.

I was at white sand hotel for a couple of weeks and l would say it was a 'home away from home' a Ghanaian friend who was also at the facility said.

l have gone around in several beach hotels and l have to confess despite little irregularities that befall any place, the hospitality facility is worth an accolade.

The beach is clean and put.The room attendants are a honest and charming team that will always let you kept a tore with family back home. The smiles are for free and a free chat if you wish are at your disposal from bar attendants to waiters and waitresses.

Food was superb not least to mention an excellent breakfast that takes care of, least to say, almost all diets.

But rough to say, way to the rooms is so long and the worst comes when the card to your room is faulty. I was a victim twice and l felt so awful.

Room Tip: Ask the receptionist to give you a room on the first floor and you will enjoy a good view of the ocean.
