The hotel, beach, pools, and rooms were wonderful. The wifi had some issues, but more than less it worked pretty well. I enjoyed my stay.

Overall good, rooms dated but food AMAZING!
Overall, the hotel is good. Rooms are a bit shabby and dingy, but perhaps people who come here aren't planning on spending a lot of time in the rooms? Mine was dirty upon arrival and just set the tone for the week. That said, it's a nice area, nice loop to walk/jog on the premises, view is beautiful and food is great! Conference services were fine, though again a little shabby. Very far from Dar and taxis very expensive, so plan to stay at the resort.
