We stayed at this beach resort in the little hut's to the rear of the hotel. The first night we were there we were robbed whilst sleeping. I woke up at 4 am to find all our money, camera and ipod had gone and the door was broken into. (there is supposed to be security everywhere). When we went to report it to reception the manager was talking to us the next minute they dragged in a security guard and had a shot gun to his head and they were beating him. The manager said they caught him pinching wood so it could of been him.
The manager was accomadating and moved us into the hotel area free of charge, whilst we were there we kept asking for a poilce report only to be told things take a long time in Tanzania it will be here tomorrow, tommorow came and went no police report we were then told we would be emailed it when we got back to england.....you guessed it were still waiting.
We were also told that an italian couple walking down the beach had all there belonging's stolen and they were actually knifed as well so if your young and value your life just don't go......Awful experience...The plus side the staff who worked at the hotel were really nice.
