Amazing Value Feb 21, 2012
After the positive words in the Bradt guide and the recommendation of a random local in Leshoto, I headed to Ocean Breeze staright off the bus in Tanga.

After paying 15,000Tsh (under US$10) for a previous hotel with no running water/reception/view in Leshoto, I prepared for the worst as I inspected one of the 15,000Tsh rooms.

I was more than pleasantly surprised to find a massive, massive room with an en suite (no hot water, but running water & a working toilet!), fan, king-sized bed (yes!) and a balcony with views of the Indian Ocean.

The receptionist was a bit cold (nothing new in Africa) but the room was fantastic and breakfast downstairs was very cheep, more than decent (Spanish Omlette was good value). There is a beer garden downstairs and a cheap & cheerful restaurant that serves bia biridi.

It's location is perfect and the tourist office downstairs offer cheap tours.

All in all I'd highly recommend Ocean Breeze and it was by far the best hotel I stayed in on mainland Tanzania.
