Fabulous Hotel. The views from the amazing swimming pool accross the sea to the pier bar are wonderful. The staff are very attentive and always smiling. The food was very good as well, and the menu chaged each night. I would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room with a sea view as the sunsets are amazing

We received 5 Star treatment from each & every single person during our stay. I always wanted to celebrate my 40th birthday in style, but I really didn’t expected to be treated like royalty. We received excellent service from the time we arrived till the time we left. The food, drinks, amenities, service, etc. were 5 star all the way. The swimming pools...wow! Love it! The rooms are beautiful & spacious. The staff are all very friendly & helpful & the facilies are awesome.

Excellent service Sea Cliff Resort & Spa team! Keep it up!

7 blissful nights was defn. not enough. I will definitely be back again soon!

We spent 5 nights at sea cliff resort it was memorable. The staff are so friendly you feel welcome the moment you are making a booking(Yvonne)and until you leave the hotel. The staff always went an extra mile to serve us beyond our expectation.
It was our 11th Wedding anniversary but being at Sea cliff was just like our first honey moon. The food was scrumptious there was never a day not to make your mouth water. I even forgot about my weight watch.
The Gym has excellent equipment, the pools are lovely. Everything about this place was excellent.
We will be back to Sea Cliff for our family vacation.

Sea Cliff is a great resort in every way. The views are simply stunning. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, there service is way beyond excellent. I would like to point out Riaan, and some of the waitresses: Grace, Samera and Neema. The room was a reasonable size and we had a sea view or superior room with a balcony that felt very private and has a great sea view. For breakfast and dinner there was a good variety of food. They pay attention to detail at the resort, the decor is well throught out and they add small elements like bowls of flowers and relaxing musci. There is a lot to do at Seal cliff, gym, tennis, squash, table tennis and a whole lot more to keep you busy should you not want to lay out by the pool. You have to walk to get to the beach and you cannot swim at the beach if the tide is low. We prefered to stay by the pool because it has sand and it is beautiful with great views of the ocean. The resort is only 20 minutes from Stone Town which makes it a great location. It is also close to the airport and several other points of interest. I would highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: We were a bit further away from the pool area which I would advise. We were in 111.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Driving into Sea Cliff Resort & Spa you know you have found something special. The 4 km road through a coconut plantation that leads to the hotel is a reminder of the Zanzibar of old. Peace and tranquility, no other hotels or busy roads just open space and palm trees.As you enter the courtyard filled with tropical flowers and palms the view of the ocean stands before you. With our traditional makuti roofs and Arabic towers lit by brass lights you know this is not a typical hotel. Its an hotel built with our location in mind. It is a unique combination of modern facilities mixed with the original exotic architecture of historical Zanzibar. ... more   less
