I don’t usually write commentaries on hotels, etc. but yet again my stay at the Mediterraneo was excellent which has promoted this comment.
I have stayed in all the big hotels in Dar but I discovered the Mediterraneo through a friend who took me for a meal. I have stayed at the hotel since 2008 on my frequent business trips to Dar. This is not a 5 star, unfriendly hotel it is warm and friendly.
The welcome starts at the reception and this is followed through by attentive service throughout.
The hotel is right on the beach with wonderfully relaxing views over the sea. It is just the right place to relax after a busy day in Dar. It has a wonderful bar and sitting area which has been imaginatively designed using old dugout canoes. Don’t let my term old put you off.
It has the best Italian food in Dar, I’ve been to Italy many times and the Mediterraneo’s food puts many Italian restaurants in Italy to shame. I always go for the specials as the pasta is fresh; if you like crab go for the crab tagliolini accompanied by one of their Italian wines. As the restaurant is virtually on the beach the winds keep it cool but you can wear shorts and a T-shirt.
The rooms are comfortable and the aircons work backed by a good generator which is essential in Dar.
Try it you won’t be disappointed.
