The hotel property is situated on the seafront with beautiful views of the yachts and the sea from both the rooms ( ask for a balcony) and the dinner/bar area. The gym is situation in a type of dungeon but there are ample equipment for a quick workout - prepare to sweat!! The breakfast is ok , very standard but...

Beautifully located on the coast with sun-set view over yacht club and north Dar-es-Salaam. The rooms are very nice and those with balcony has great views. However, it does not have a private beach - it only a coral rock tidal basin so the only option for a swim is the pool.

Great hotel. The location, staff, amenities etc are very good. Very good place for kids too. Internet works well so business travellers will like this place. Not crowded which makes swimming a pleasant experience.

I have stayed at many hotels in Dar es Salaam and find myself requesting only the Coral Beach now! The staff are super-friendly, super-efficient, the rooms are big and nicely appointed, comfortable and clean.

I have stayed at this hotel since I began travelling to Tanzania in 2011. It has come a long way since then with excellent management, renovations and some experience from a catering point-of-view. The restaurant on the beach provides for a relaxing meal at sunset with the gentle lapping of waves just over the coral retaining wall. The Seashorse Bar...

This hotel is situated nicely at the Indian ocean at Oyster Bay, a peninsular close to, but off the hectic and terrible place that Dar can be.

I stayed at the Best Western Coral Beach for 2 nights and although this is your typical business hotel, I expected more. I think the wing we were on has seen better days and one could see the signs of wear and tear on the amenities. Room service (a basic Club Sandwich) took forever and was bland at best, my...

My team and I had a perfect stay at BEST WESTERN CORAL BEACH hotel- the rooms are huge and spotless clean. The best bit being the Indian cuisine, they have a 24 hour small gym and a trainer at hand to give you a thorough workout. Worth every penny spent.
