I stayed here on a recent business trip accompanied by my wife. The quality of the rooms was excellent - if you visit the rooms with the view over the bay and sunset are a must ! The staff throughout the hotel were professional and friendly without being 'in your face' We ate at the terrace restaurant on a number... More

This was my third visit to the Coral Beach Hotel, which comes at the end of an annual teaching trip to Tanzania. The customer service was exceptional again this year and the relaxing atmosphere really helped me to wind down after a demanding couple of weeks in the field. Manager Mr Helmet and his staff went out of their way... More

I really enjoyed my 2 weeks at the Best Western Coral Beach Hotel while being on business trip in Dar es Salaam. Very spacious comfortable rooms, nice garden, lounge area and cosy outdoor bar, but what charmed me the most was the homely almost family like atmosphere the staff created. My special thanks to Salim from reception, Zadia from catering... More

Stayed at the hotel for a business trip. Great hotel rooms and lovely restaurants by the seaside. Their breakfast is amazing. Services are excellent. Ask for the rooms with a balcony facing the sea, the views are stunning

For my conferencing purposes, the hotel was a good choice. Service was Tanzania friendly, Room 1203 was very good (though with an annoying window view of a wall and neighboring property and only a snippet of the sea!). It's an older place, but well outfitted and maintained. Limitations: No beach (so i would probably not use as family vacation spot);... More

We always spend our last night in Tanzania at this hotel and it's standards remain high. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable though I would say that the rooms in the newer block are more up-to-date. There is good internet access and there are two computers for the use of guests. Breakfast is varied, tasty and plentiful. The... More

The rooms are comfortable and the setting on the bay is nice. The breakfast is savory and a great way to start the day. There are lots of steps, but not too awkward. The security at the gate is diligent, but the neighborhood might not be too safe to walk around in. The safe in my room didn't work, but... More
