This was a business trip, but the kindness of staff, exceptional location and outdoor spaces, intimate feel of interior spaces, and excellent varied breakfast give a wonderful peaceful sense of home. An occasionally flaky internet was the only annoyance. Overall my personal choice for a stay in Dar.

We booked into Sea Cliff for our anniversary. Outstanding views, fantastic food. Excellent service. Including turn down and wonderful bathrooms. A big thank you to all the staff who made our stay so memorable. The staff are all extremely diligent and responsive, and requests are catered to in excellent time. Will definitely be back

the hotel is better than fine. I liked the breakfast buffet (included in my room price) and liked the gym and pool. But I was disturbed too many times in my room by housekeeping wanting to clean or spray the room. And what is the point of turn down service if they don't give you chocolates? There were no bathrobes... More

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.
