Breakkfast buffet not to forget. I would... More

The first thing you will notice will be the calm and soothing sea next to the hotel. The location is priceless. The management did a fine job in maintaining a mixture of modern and traditional African atmosphere. The lobby is decorated with pictures of many superstars staying there, including Angelina Jolie. During my stay i had the privilege of meeting... More

The grounds are beautiful, the staff are friendly and courteous, and the rooms...the rooms are beautiful! My room looked directly out at the Indian Ocean, every morning I woke to a beautiful sunrise over the ocean! It was... More

We just got back from a three nights stay at this Hotel and have to say, that, everything about this place was lovely. We were greeted nicely with a smile, something to drink and were escorted by a Masai to our comfortable, modern room. We had a picturesque sea view. The sleep, shower and temperature of the room were perfect.... More

Great location at the end of the peninsula and fantastic views out over the ocean. Convenient amenities right next door including supermarket, pharmacy and a couple of small restaurants. The cafe is great as is the breakfast. My room was ok, a bit tired and I had to ask the hotel (twice) to clean the bathroom as it was a... More

I have stayed at the Sea Cliff since it was built (and burnt down). I have never been disappointed. The service is always good and the rooms well serviced. A bit far from the office and with the traffic congestion worse than ever, arriving at the hotel lowers the stress. The hotel is always improving services and even on a... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and attended a business meeting onsite. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff. For example, when I checked in (I had no reservation) I was given a room on the front of the hotel overlooking the security gate. I was told by the manager at check in that they would move my...

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the Sea Cliff, even though I had a view directly into a maintenance area. (I heartily encourage people to get a room with a sea view.) The room was comfortable and nicely decorated, although the air conditioning was a bit erratic and the room and its contents never really dried out (classic seaside phenomenon).The... More
