Absolutely great location, great service & a equally great restaurant, also everything you might otherwise need is in the vicinity, great transportation hub in this part of the peninsula, safe at night for a stroll (100 m on either sides, in Africa thats almost as good as a mile after dark), loved it.

I must say up front that this was a working trip, not a holiday. I stayed at the Sea Cliff hotel for four weeks. The staff are extremely friendly and very eager to make your stay as good as possible. We were staying in an off the main hotel complex called "The Village", a small area with some hotel rooms... More

his hotel has very small rooms but they are clean. The bathroom was fairly spacious so that was nice. There was far more street noise all night long than I would have liked but we were on the 2nd floor--big mistake for this property. It is close to nigh club. too noise parking area

Great sea view. Restaurant serves Chinese n Indian food but we chose Indian food for 2 straight nites. They were just great. Variety of choices for breakfast as well. Room is spacious n clean. There is a small casino in there which kept me entertained. I don't even need to get out of the hotel.

I cannot think of any negatives about this hotel. The staff are all super helpful. The food at the restaurants is wonderful. The scenery is marvelous. If you are in Dar es Salaam, you will be missing a real treat if you do not stay at the Sea Cliff Hotel.

When on a business trip you tend to pick hotels that will make it easy to continue doing business as if you are at home or the office. The internet access in the rooms of this hotel is a joke! It was impossible to do email from the rooms. We had to go work in the lobby where the access... More

Nice rooms, nice pool, friendly staff and a decent bar. Ticks all the boxes. Worth a stay. The staff need tips all the time, but that's just Tanzania in general. Far enough from the busy town. There is a general store which is a 2 min walk from the hotel which is handy.

just one of the nicest places to stay. far from the busy Dar es Salaam but close enough to go. I like the bar, restaurant with the sea view. food and service is excellent, one of my favorites, to relax after the bush, being a tour guide.
