We were unable to use the pool as it was overcrowded and we had a 6 month old with us. Room: Both rooms in the suite were clean and comfortable....

First off the rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, and we enjoyed the food. But the pools were ok we enjoyed them. The sand and beach were really dirty and tractors were moving sand around so it was loud. The pier you were not allowed on it was roped off, barring guests. The music was so loud on Friday night...

Total surprise to fall into White Sands in the north end of Dar. Lovely grounds, very comfortable rooms, gorgeous pool, friendly staff. Only drawback was that the hotel restaurant was only so-so in terms of food and service, but that was ok for me. I will definitely be back, this time with the family in tow!
