Not worth it

The picture of the Hotel they have on the website is misleading: the beach is not directly in from of the hotel: you must walk 200m or so, passing in the swimmingpool area first (so no sand close to the hotel). The food and anything else is extremely overpriced compared to its value. Surprisingly you pay 15000 tzs for a juice (from carton), whereas in the previous 3* hotel where I was I could pay 15000 for juice (the same one) plus a complete meal.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful beach and comfortable hotel

Check in was smooth and staff are attentive and fun, rooms are simple and comfortable. Beach and water was just gorgeous. They're Indian and seafood was excellent.

Pros: tranquillity, not many people as was told is such on weekdays (weekends much busier, family enjoyment scene)

Cons: Rooms in general need a pick-up, and have heard touch ups are now on going.

Location: Few other hotels nearby, but this is the place to just get away from it all, everything is already at the resort.

4/5 Good

This was the best holiday of my life. South Beach hotel has the most amazing atmosphere, especially on a Saturday night. And to top it off, the food was incredible; the staff were super-helpful (and spoke good English) and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Thank you!


Only better for Beach experience not Hotel

It was terrible. Far from the ferries, they dont have transportation for guests, terrible staffing at night because when I arrived there almost everyone was asleep. I did not get any food because they dont do that service over night and the room condition is just very mediocre like a cheap hostel room. The food the following day was overpriced for no reason at all because for breakfast was simply very plain fried eggs and expensive tosts, and even there is no any professional customer care whats so ever. I would not go back there for a hotel experience or stay overnight. I would simply just go for a fresh expensinve Beach experience because they have it nice there but super expensive again.

Pros: Nothing other than the beach.

Cons: Hotel services are 5%. My be they can improve on that or just forget about the hotel and only run a day business for hosting beach parties

Location: Its very far from the town. Its more of an isolated place
