The hotel has a nice casual atmosphere, the rooms are classic,lovely and have beautiful seaviews. I loved the evening meals outside on the terrace at the Karimbeze. We also tried their fine dinning restaurant (India/Chinese) and weren't disappointed. What more could you ask for when starting a new adventure

This hotel is clean, friendly staff and good food options within the hotel. The breakfast in the AM is awesome and delicious. Hotel staff can assist with any questions about local attractions and getting around. The pool is beautiful and the view of the ocean is unreal. Def worth it!

I am living in Dar and have used a number of their facilities. They have the best customer service in the area, with staff who know how to make you feel special. Don't hesitate to visit there- they also have stunning views across the ocean.

I love staying at the Sea Cliff. The sea-view rooms mean waking up to the exquisite view of the Indian ocean through palm trees and bougainvillea, add the soft breeze from the ocean, and you have paradise. Wonderful hotel staff, including the warm and wonderful Nana. The food is also really good with hard to resist desserts. Take my word,... More

I recently made a business trip to the Sea cliff in Dar ES Salaam, the hotel is extremely nice but the annex accommodation that I was placed in was truly awful. The 'village' rooms were damp, smelly and infested. I reported the standard of the room but due to the hotel being full no alternative was given. As this was... More

Found myself stranded in Dar for the night and stayed at the Sea Cliff Hotel. Great setting and very friendly staff. Porters were excellent and helped my daughter to ride on the trolley, slowly and safely. Pool was clean, although the tiles in the pool are a little slippery especially on the slope to the deep end.

This hotel is on the peninsula and overlooks the sea. Not all rooms have a sea view though. There are cockroaches and mosquitoes everywhere and they have to spray your room everyday with stuff, leaving an awful smell. They casino is in the complex and with the band/singer playing, you won't get a good nite sleep. The breakfast is mediocre... More
