We spent our honeymoon at seacliff from 8 Nov to 15 Nov and will do it over again in a heartbeat. Resort is big, but not so that you get tired to where you want to be and very clean. We had a deluxe room (112) situated in a corner and it was very spacious, clean, neat, luxurious and private.... More

This hotel is about 14 miles from Stone Town, offers half board, full board and all-inclusive rates, has a daily complimentary shuttle to Stone Town, and a sunset cruise to Stone Town for a... More

Great staff, marvellous location! The only slightly negative thing is that it is a 40$ taxi-drive from Stone Town, which makes a 20$ dinner a 60$ one. Other than that only positive remarks!!! On top of that, after reading some negative remarks about the food, I can assure you that now there is lots of variation and it is of... More

Taxi's are unfortunately, sometimes very expensive and something which needs to be kept in mind when travelling in Tanzania / Zanzibar. We hope to see you again one day.

We stayed at Sea cliff for four nights, we were a big group of people staying there as we were getting married in Zanzibar. The hotel itself is perfect for this kind of stay; Enormous resort with everything you can imagine- tennis courts, table tennis, gym, horse riding, etc. The resort is stunning overlooking a pier and the Indian ocean....
