We stayed at Protea Courtyard just before we boarded a ship for a three week cruise. At the end of the cruise I realized I had left a dress at the Protea hotel. It is a favorite dress of my four year old grandson, who always says "That's beeootiful!" when I wear it. Naturally, I was sad to lose it....

What a beautiful and distinct hotel and what amazing, friendly staff! I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough. I was just sorry I wasn't staying longer than two separate nights to take advantage of the pool, dining by the pool in the evening and the gym, which all looked superb. The hotel has great character and the staff were all...

After half a day in town it's really nice to get back to this small oasis where you can enjoy the garden pool. The rooms are clean and nice. The food is good. From the hotel it takes about 10 min to the city center. We will defintely come back!

We spent a few days here as we traveled in and out of Dar Es Salaam.

The Protea Courtyard (as well as Amani Beach and Oysterbay) is one of the very few hotels that recycles! The manager doesn't just care about the guests, but also makes an effort with their carbon footprint. If you say at one of the Protea by Marriott Hotels, rest assured your waste is getting recycled and creating jobs.
