This is one of the best hotels in Zanzibar with excellent facilities spread across a vast landscape. Good location and very well maintained. Restaurants are good but limited variety of vegetarian food. Vegetarians have to speak to the chef to get something as per their requirements. Rest everything is quite good.

It is an excellent located resort with good views. The food is excellent the staff are very helpful and friendly. The Golf course just makes the place even more appealing. Nice place see you on my next stay in zanzibar.

Sea cliff resort is definitely a place i will be visiting again it has spectacular views at sunset and offers such a wide range of activities to make up for the fact that there is not much in terms of beach, besides by the newly constructed golf bar which has perhaps 25m worth of beach but as the name suggests...

I'm going to qualify this review by saying up front that I gave them 4 stars because my room was beautiful and had an awesome view of the ocean. I was working in Dar and decided to spend a weekend on Zanzibar. The concierge at the Sea Cliff Dar arranged everything for me so I had a really nice room--very... More

Spent an amazing few nights here and didn't want to leave! The hotel has amazing facilities and the staff and service are incredible. Love the different variety of food. The concierge are really helpful and booked various trips to view the island. Would highly recommend this hotel to any family or even couples.

We went to this hotel after our safari and it was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and could not do enough for you. Rooms were large, light, with great views of sea and gardens, and the air conditioning was fab so we got a good nights sleep. Food was lovely with a different theme each night and... More

Last week was my first time at the Sea Cliff Resort & Spa in Zanzibar. I normally stay in Nungwi or Kendwa because there is a beautiful beach there, but this time i was drawn in because of the New Golf Course. The hotel was very clean and good. I would describe it as a simple but classy hotel. We... More
