I saw some rave reviews about the hotel and was looking forward to experience a couple of nights at the Sea Cliff myself. On arrival came the first eye opener, no front gate security check at all which in this day and age gave me instant butterflies. The setting of the hotel is truly special and the ocean view deserves... More

The hotel accommodations were very good and staff responsive. I encountered an air conditioning issue in my room during the following day after check-in. The maintenance staff was responsive and diligently attempted to repair the unit. When it couldn't readily and quickly be remedied, hotel management moved me to another room at no charge. The on-site restaurant was great for... More

Thanks to Nan Nan and her team for making me feel at home yet again. I have lost track of the number of times I have stayed at the SeaCliff. The best place to stay in Dar, comfortable spacious rooms, great food from the Karambezi all of this while overlooking the Indian Ocean creating the perfect place to stay.

This was my second time staying at the Sea Cliff hotel within the last two years and as always it was worth it. First, the hotel and grounds are beautiful. Second, the view of the Indian ocean and the cliffs are awesome and third and probably the most important are the staff! They were always friendly, smiling and they new... More

Sea Cliff, the hotel is really located on a sea cliff. Our room was huge, clean and the view from our room window is nothing short of breathtaking. Breakfast is served on an open air terrace which sits at the edge of the cliff. The buffet breakfast is very good and tasty. A small shopping center, with lots of restaurants... More

Sea Cliff is right on the beach in a quiet and relaxing location. The hotel is well kept, room was huge, very clean, luxurious, with floor-to-ceiling windows facing the sea. Room service and the food was excellent although you have to repeat the order couple of times over the phone! Would definitely visit again.

Whilst transiting through Daar this is a great place to get away from the craziness and relax. The hotel is located on the sea front, in a quiet location, it's worth making sure you get a sea facing view its well worth it. The room itself was quite luxurious with an amazing all clear glass shower.. Allowing you to look... More
