Upon arrival it's the usual meet and greet in the lounge whilst they prepare all the paperwork, this process was a bit tedious, and we had to eventually find someone to give us our room key as they didn't come back with it. The views are just spectacular as you arrive and you can literally start your vacation immediately. The... More

Sea Cliff provides all you need in order to have a pleasant, relaxing stay! Two nice pool areas facing the ocean, rooms that are clean and spacious (we had a De luxe room, definitely worth the extra charge). The garden of the hotel is beautiful and very well kept. Restaurant provides a breakfast with a great selection, lunches have variety... More

I like this hotel. we spent a very nice holiday here. There is a lot of choices here in the restaurant. Bedroom is so soft, we had a very deep sleeping here. I will come back to sea cliff again. I love it.

My partner and I had the good fortune to spend a period of time at Sea Cliff and this has become the standard that we expect. The room was exquisite, with every possible need catered for. Every staff member was exceptionally friendly, although I do think it is a Zanzibari thing. All the meals were brilliant! Dinners even had live... More

The management and staff at Sea Cliff Resort made us most welcome right from the welcome cocktail. Staff were welcoming and knowlegeable. Food was excellent and based on local specialities - with lots of fish and curries. The air conditioned rooms are beautiful with views of the sea. The best experience was watching the sunset from the (very warm) pool... More
