Myself and children stayed one night at Sea Cliff in December. The room/apartment was spacious enough for the four of us and we had kitchen facilities etc (but didn't use them - just went to the sea-front restaurant for dinner). Reception staff were very helpful with our very early morning start and organised packed breakfast for us. The room was... More

I spent two weeks at the Sea Cliff on business and loved it. The staff was helpful with everything from stamps for postcards to helping me arrange a weekend at the Sea Cliff property on Zanzibar. The Indian food at the Alcove restaurant was delicious and my room had a beautiful ocean view. Only two downsides: the internet is inconsistent... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times. Staff have always been obliging. Rooms are a bit dated but entirely comfortable as are bathrooms although hot water supply erratic. Nice leisure facilities. Karambezi bar and restaurant (also where breakfast is served) offers good range of fresh, wholesome food and very friendly, obliging staff. Nice pool area and wonderful ocean-edge location.... More

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
