A Quiet and Family-Friendly Beach Hotel

I stayed at the Marriot Amani Beach for a week at the end of September, and was very impressed. The property consists of 10 bungalows set in extensive gardens, facing onto a private beach. The bungalows are lovely and very well-maintained, with a place to sit out and a hammock if you don't want to spent all your time down at the beach. Breakfast and dinner are taken up at the main house, with luncheon, coffee, etc - available at the "Beach Bar". Although the menu is relatively limited, there was fresh seafood everyday that I was there - so, in fact, the choice very easy. Service was excellent, without at all being obtrusive. It was all just at the right level of helpful and welcoming - while also very much leaving you to your own devices once you had settled in. On most days there were a few families playing on the beach/in the pool, some couples in the sun loungers, and some single travellers curled up in the hammocks with books. Although it's a Marriot, I understand this was taken over from a previous chain (Protea), and so feels rather more rustic as compared with a city Marriot. There's also no tv or wifi in the bungalows themselves, although this is available at the main house. There's not much around, so be prepared for very quiet evenings. So, as ever, it depends on the vacation you want: if you're looking for a quiet, family-friendly, beach getaway, I think this is a lovely spot, and fantastic value for what you get. I would definitely come again.

Fantastic hidden gem just 45 mins from Dar

This is a truly amazing gem, hidden just 45 minutes drive outside hectic Dar. Ahsray, the manager, runs the place with a keen eye for customer satisfaction and ensures that you feel welcome and at home. He checked in on us during the weekend, a short friendly chit chat here and there, before he circled to other guests. Check-in was easy and smooth, we were even called before check-in and informed that our rooms were ready. The friendly staff quickly took us to the rooms with an amazing view of the ocean. They run a menu (with quite good selection), but treat your self with a "today's special". Local fishermen provide fresh fish on a daily basis, I tasted Shark for the first time, and at dinner time did I enjoy the freshest RedSnapper ever. The location is very peaceful and relaxing - we enjoyed every moment of our stay.

This small hotel is almost perfect. The beach is great for swimming, the views are great, the rooms are large and comfortable and the food is very good.
