If you want to enjoy a view of Indian Ocean with excellent menu; this is the place to be. Even if you are not staying at this place; its a must visit for one single evening. They have excellent menu for Drinks and Desserts.

Had a comfortable 4 nights in this hotel. One star off for the fact there was a casino on the premises, which doesnt suit the hotel with the big sign in the front. The restaurants: Karambezi and Alcove. Breakfast was decent I'd say, but for the price of accommodation I've had a lot better. Our lunches were pretty good there... More

We spent a night at the start and end of a week's holiday in Tanzania at the Sea Cliff and ate all our meals at the hotel whilst there.

Comfortable rooms, good service, nice grounds and great views of the ocean. Its a little worn around the edges and I could have done without the Masai Warrior doorman -it was like throw back to colonial times. Food was average to sub-par.

Astounding natural beauty in the heart or Dar Es Salaam. No other place in Dar comes anywhere near... Definitely the best hotel in Dar. The open air cafe on the cliff is the best place to be... any time of the year, any time of the day, with any kind of company. Superbly maintained property, excellent staff, scrumptious food, well...

The hotel setting is fantastic and close to local markets, shopping areas and off-site dining. The service was fantastic, especially Guest Relations and Alcove bar. Service at pool could have been quicker. We loved our room, except for the bathroom which was a bit cramped (Deluxe room) for 2. Also easy to get taxi's out front of hotel and hairdresser... More
