We hosted a conference for 130 delegates. The staff were brilliant and helpful. Always on hand to assist with any request from our side. Beautiful rooms. Beds were turned down every night and mosquito repellent was sprayed in the rooms every night. The GM met us as well. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Dar es Salaam

Room Tip: 2 Bed apartments are good for 3 ppl sharing and families

I was at the White Sands running a conference with colleagues in the HIV field. By the time I left I knew the staff and I can't think of a problem they didn't address. The guys running the restaurant actually stand to one side, checking to make sure there are no problems. very good conference venue.

We visited the place while my trip to Tanzania and my experience was good . Cordial staff , restaurants serving great food , neatly maintained resort property and above all the amazing beach .The name "White Sands" justifies itself .

We also took a boat ride which was enjoyable and had a gala time altogether .

I look forward to visiting this place again when I visit Dar next time ....

Having had enough of the working week in Dar I contacted the ever-friendly general manager to see if I could get a room for the Saturday night. Within 5 minutes he had emailed me a great deal and I was on my way. Great room (a suite), very quiet, clean and big! Saturday spent by the pool and served by brilliant staff, dinner with a group of friends in the evening and back to the pool on Sunday. Terrific. Fantastic clean beach as well. The only criticism would be the restaurant. Although the food was good it should be better. If it gets the standard up then WS will definitely be a destination for the many people who live nearby.

We are back in Morogoro today after spending a wonderful weekend at the White Sands with our son, daughter in law and two grand children aged 5.5 and 2.5 years who were on holiday from Ireland, at Beach Cottage 116 .The beach cottage is in a fabulous location with some lawn in front which runs down to a lovely white sandy beach which was great for the children. The pool was very popular and the children's pool was great for the two year old.The staff were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was to die for, I have traveled to many countries but the assortment of fruit and choice was just tops. The pizza and snacks around the pool were delicious. We choose to have a la carte at night rather than the huge buffet. There was a good healthy choice and the waitress went out of her way to get the children some pasta from the buffet without any hassle.One recommendation I would have it that the management get a children's channel on the TV which is good to have when the sun gets too hot. I did mention this to Tarryn. Thank you White Sands for a lovely stay and hope to see you in early January when our daughter and family come to visit.
