The hotel is lovely, very good ambiance and best experience. Located in the porch area of Dar es salaam, very quite and peaceful neighborhood. The beach view and the breeze makes the stay in the balcony. The staff are friendly and ready to serve all the times. I advise anyone to stay at coral beach.
