After a tiring week on Safari in Tanzania,we arranged to stay 6 nights in the Sea Cliff for relaxation, good food and to meet some nice people. We were not disappointed.

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

Jambo ! Thank you for your review, your comments regarding your stay and the food are truly appreciated. 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....

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
