Situated outside of the busy city center near the ocean shore (which has a big, untapped potential!), this hotel offers all amenities one might expect from a quality oriented hotel. Clean, friendly and helpful staff, overall (except for the very grumpy bar tender...). Nice pool and well equiped, up to standards, gym. Restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes and...

Traveling to Dar for the first time - as a female, from the US, and by myself on a business trip- was a little intimidating - until I arrived.

Have been to hotels but none comes close to this one. Never have I seen such a dedicated team and committed to offering service than this one, The service welcome was so warm that you hardly notice that you are in an hotel and the food was mouth watering. I will definitely be in this hotel soon.

The staff is so nice and accommodating. Excellent food, and a very beautiful courtyard with a pool. It had great ambiance. They offer buffet style breakfast with several options so there is something for everyone. Wonderful place to stay.

We've stayed at this Protea a number of times and always love the home away from home feeling.

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.
