I stayed here for 5 nights. Good room. Beautiful view on the sea. Food is good for Tanzania standards. Service is friendly but with typical Tanzania shortcomings like you ask for Cappuccino and they bring you black coffee. Or you say 'no' if you want another beer but they bring you another one. Otherwise fine.

Always have enjoyed the hotel in Dar es Salaam but for the first time experienced soliciting by hookers at the bar which puts a dampner on the stay. Hotel has a relaxed holiday feel about it and it is great to sit outside in the warm evenings to enjoy a sundowner but spoilt a bit by the soliciting

It was a short trip for me to the city of Dar and I needed a lace that was clean, efficient and close to where my business was. Coral Beach provided that I needed. I will highly recommend it and will definitely return for any future trips.
