From check-in to check-out at Sea Cliff was one big pleasure. Every smallest detail are tended to, no stone left unturned to accommodate you. We went paddling, horseriding and just lazed in the sun. And every staff member from reception staff, to the gardeners are friendly and so willing to assist in every matter.

Sea Cliff was built in the 90s, but you'd think it's brand new. It's extremely well-kept, it feels like walking in a beautiful garden! The personnel at the resort was always very polite, helpful and accommodating, the room was squeaky clean and the sea view from our room was lovely. Breakfast was very good, and the food was always organised... More

My wife and me travelled the first time outside of Europe and to Africa. Friends of us recommended the Sea Cliff Resort after their stay last year and we had a long look at the Resort's website to get a better feeling for the place. The pictures there showed a beautiful place and what we found was even more beautiful.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights after a Safari trip in Kenya. 1 Adult and 2 Children. There are so many good things about the Sea Cliff but the stand out has to be the staff. They were excellent, everyone was helpful and without fail would say hello (Jambo) whenever you passed them. The facilities are excellent. No sunbed hogging... More

I stayed at the Sea Cliff Resort &Spa from the 21st to the 24th for a friends wedding. We arrived at the resort and were greeted by a cold reception. We arrived late and tried to order some food as we spent the whole day traveling but we were advised that the kitchen was closed hence we went to bed... More

We spent a week of our honeymoon at Sea Cliff earlier this month. We had engaged with Maggie since June and found her most helpful.

Overall our stay at the Sea Cliff Resort was very enjoyable. The resort itself is a tropical paradise; the hotel's layout, design, attention to detail was visually breathtaking, our sea view room was clean and beautifully presented. The hotel's leisure and recreational facilities were first class, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to my friends. There are however two areas... More

we spent a week in this hotel for our honeymoon, and it's just the perfect place. You shouldn't necessarily go there if you are a really beachy person because the beach is quite small and during low tide you can't really swim in the ocean, but the resort itself is amazing - from the rooms (take one with sea view),...
