8/10 Very Good

Clean, nice executive room & great food
The executive suite was nice and very clean. Enjoyed the room, room service, all meals are delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful, no complaints there. You “get what you pay for” in the sense that the exterior of the hotel is not appealing, the swings in the pool area are outdated, the included playground, kids play area across the street is very outdated, and the entire area across the street is shared between guests and locals. This is not necessarily a bad thing as the locals are nice and do not cause any problems whatsoever, but just noting that the amenities are not “exclusive” or “guest only” as I am accustomed to. I’ve never seen a beach with so much garbage in the sand. It’s definitely not a beach for swimming but you can enjoy a little water view while eating or just sitting and talking. While I admit that I was able to enjoy ping pong, and a pool table during this stay, the amenities that I used and observed did not make up for the distance away from the main city of Dar Es Salaam where I wanted to do and experience additional things. The distance is maybe 45 minutes to an hour away from the airport and all the major stuff. Overall, the positive things I mentioned about the executive room, cleanliness, nice staff, really great food… definitely are worth the price.
