Rooms have hot showers and are fairly clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is reasonably good. The problem is with dinner where a fixed menu is provided. There is little or no seafood on the menu. The manager does not take criticism constructively and is only

I stayed here in low season (November) for 3 nights. I am a tour operator in Tanzania and I found this little place to be reasonably priced, clean, friendly and with wonderful features such as a deck to take in the sea breezes. While the cheaper accommodation does have a slight

The room I stayed in was not fit for human habitation: 1) large holes in the filthy mosquito net covered in dead bugs 2) room was full of insects of every description that had made nests under the rotting mats that covered the floor and the answer seemed to be throwing

Response from Alex B, Inhaber at Beach Crab Resort
Responded 21 Oct 2018
I am very sad to hear this. Normally my housekeeping is very reliable and very good in what they are doing. I organised a meeting with all my stuff to push them again and to tell them who is paying them at the end. Just for information our housekeeping is not cleaning the room automatically. You have to leave your key at reception and then they will clean everything as often you want. Same with broken things. You have to report it and then we repair it as soon as possible and it is not helping to complain afterwards through the internet. Door and mosquito net are repaired ! Our dinner is a three course menue changing every day. You have the choice between an Vegetarian and a non Vegetarian option and you have to order until 16.00 because we make everything fresh. If you come late in the evening to the restaurant we can only offer some small lunch options which our cooks can prepare fast. Like they did in your case. I think our website is very clear we offer beach huts for 20 $ per person in a Double and bungalows for 60 $ per Person in a double all is inclusive breakfast.
