We had a great stay at the Coral Beach Hotel. An excellent business and holiday destination. Great rooms, excellent layout and good wifi. The breakfast was very good too. In particular we had fabulous assistance from Rehema who assisted us with booking a hotel in Zanzibar. We will be back. Thanks

The hotel is situated just by the ocean with a fantastic, sandy terrass with natural shade provided by the palm trees. The pool and bar area is also very nice with lots of green and shade and nice furniture for sitting and working or a fantastic spot for sun downers. Decent sized and clean pool. Rooms are of nice size...

It is an amazing hotel, very high quality, close to America and European standards. However, if you pay USD 190 per room per night, you expect a bit more... The rooms are very spacious, good bed and Internet, however the airlines leaks and the bathroom could have been maintained a bit better. Being in Africa and reaching that quality is...

Reviewed 12 November 2016

While this may be an idyllic setting and the most of the staff are brilliant their quality control is severely lacking and they need to work on this. The fact that sometimes you get great service and sometimes you get really bad service is not appealing to someone who wants a long stay and uses the hotel for many services.
