A taste of luxury much appreciated after long journey - lovely location, beautiful view, excellent food in bistro overlooking sea, excellent pool to relax in. Only criticism would be the view - or lack of it from our room- on the first night we stayed…but we were so tired and had such a lovely big sleep it did not matter... More

Very good location, right on the sea slightly outside of the city. Very friendly staff. Right size: sufficiently big to offer the comfort and amenities one wants; sufficiently small not to be yet another industrial hotel. Really pleasant. The view on the sea is simply magic: Africa, with a taste of the Omani coastline in it. Really pleasant for business... More

I spent 5 nights at the Sea Cliff. The staff was unfailing and authentically warm, the setting was relaxed and inviting, and the food was consistently good. It was a fast-paced business trip, so I especially appreciated the extra TLC.

As a family we stayed for 23 nights in Exec rooms as we searched for an apartment, so we feel well-qualified to rate levels of service. We went through the whole menu and never disappointed nor upset tums. There is a great friendly feel through the whole hotel. Senior management - Moses extremely professional. Patricia, Wambura, Helen and colleagues at... More

This is a once in a life time kind of hotel, classy, beautiful, well worth it, and most importantly homely. Everything you need is just at the door step and I even had the owner Veer Patel personally greet me. I love the restaurants and all the staff who were super pleasant.

As far as quality hotels go, the Sea Cliff is a wonderful place to stay, either for work or vacation. The staff are helpful, the rooms are clean, and the pool, shops, and casino provide plenty of entertainment during your stay. (Note the shops onsite are quite over-priced, but do undoubtedly provide high-quality products. For more affordable shopping and restaurants,... More

With the upgrading and repairs now complete, the hotel has a new feel about it, updated and clean, its a lovely place to spend a weekend or a week. The main restaurant has a wonderful selection of foods that are quite good, the breakfast menu could do with an upgrade although its not bad in general. The hotel staff are... More

Very good hotel with adequately furnished and equipped rooms. Beautiful swimming pool overlooking the ocean. Breakfast buffet with a good selection of dishes. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. The boutiques are not of a great interest and the hair salon is very expensive.

Brief stay on business. Service reasonable, staff very pleasant, facilities good, hotel clean. Free Wi-Fi just about adequate. Room (128) O.K. but bathroom/toilet could not have been any smaller and view from the window was of the back of a row of solar panels - rather unattractive. Air conditioning fine. Ensure you get a sea facing room. Had an excellent... More

It is very easy to say this is the best hotel and leave it at that. But this hotel does still have it's niggles. We love our time here and find the staff friendly, helpful and efficient. The Karambezi restaurant has high prices but great food and great service. But sometimes things are not maintained (AC, WiFi) and the standard... More
