Have stayed here for a few days on business trips (my office very local) several times over last 2 years. Personally the room location is not vital for me but if you can (and definitely if on holiday) get a room facing the sea. Also note that those rooms above the front entrance can be a little noisy at night.... More

The thing about Dar es Salaam is that you do not want to spend any time on the roads. The traffic is horrible and can take hours to get anywhere. The Sea Cliff is in a great location, close to all the shops and services you might need with beautiful ocean views to boot. The hotel also has very comfortable... More

The hotel is next to the sea..and I was give the room over looking the sea. Sounds of sea water hitting against the wall was soothing. Food at the continental restaurant was very nice. The staff are very friendly and excellent service. The downside was the traffic jam we had to endure from the airport.

The receptionist are the worst. It takes time to check in and out and they never smile. They treat customers differently. As for the waitress, the service is poor, the waitress are inexperienced and young. The masai and other staff that help with bags and door opening are always greeting with a smile.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Sea Cliff hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. The rooms, pool, service and facilities were everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The location is perfect, nestled on a cliff thereby giving awesome panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. The Karambezi Cafe inside the complex... More

I had a first floor room with the ocean views. The hotel is right on the water so day and night you can enjoy in the sound of the sea waves. Almost everything was perfect: nice decor, pitch-black shades so you can sleep late in the morning, quiet A/C. The food in the restaurant that serves breakfast was fantastic (especially... More

We spend only one night in this Hotel in our way to South Africa. The service was really good. The room was huge and very beautiful. It has a nice swim pool and great view to Indic Ocean. It has three restaurants options and a Cassino. They have a early breakfast and transfer to the airport.
