I loved, loved, loved this hotel. We went half-board (lots of guests there were all-inclusive) and spent quite a lot on drinks with dinner and just relaxing during the day, so all-inclusive might be a better option if you see yourself drinking. The food was truly, truly outstanding - lots of cultures covered (Indian, Middle Eastern, Western, African) and the... More

I stayed here only for a night at the very end of my Tanzania adventure trip. I was traveling alone in Tanzania after work in Kenya and this hotel was recommended by my safari tour operator. Before agreeing to stay here, i read the reviews and checked out their website. It did meet my expectations and more! The resort is... More

Its a beautiful resort on the North West of the Island. Two breathtaking infinity pools that overlook the beach. Resort provides numerous activities (eg. squash, table-tennis, pool, board games, and water sport). Great thing is that all the equipment is provided. When you walk in you see the size the resort and the pool with pool nets, and you get... More

We chose to spend the second part of our holiday at this resort based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. We found the room to be very small and the bathroom cramped and not what we expected from a 5 star resort. To upgrade to a better room was horrifically expensive. So instead, we just enjoyed the fantastic sea view... More

Jambo! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. All comments are taken very seriously, and the buffets and beach litter and most especially the 'beach touts' will be discussed with the relevant departments. We are glad however, that you enjoyed the views and the pools. Asante sana, The TEAM - Sea Cliff Resort & Spa Zanzibar More

It's a nice hotel directly at the ocean with good opportunities for water activities. The friendly staff made us feel welcome from the first second! Food was good as well and the views of the sunset were really amazing. Altogether it was the perfect hotel for our first trip to africa!

Perfect for family holiday since kids activities are available... Nice view of the ocean.... Good food, chef oscar does marvelous job. The rooms are also good but I didn't like our baby cot. But everything else is perfect

The time here was relaxing. The view is breathtaking. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The property is not reaching its full potential. More opportunities should be available within the hotel for water activities, without outsourcing to other companies (i.e. jet skis, banana boats, parasailing, etc.) However, the horseback riding was excellent. The meals were hit or miss. Some... More

We came for a meeting but stayed over for a couple of days of rest and enjoyment. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have a beautiful balcony with a great view. The staff members in every area are very helpful.

Probably the nicest hotel/resort that I have been to in all of Africa. From the details of craftsmanship, to service, to food, to the view, to the rooms, to ground. Absolutely amazing and we will be back.
