A group of friends and I spent 1 week in Seacliff over New Year 2012/2013 and had mixed experiences about this hotel.
While the setting of the hotel, the gardens and pools are very attractive, we were not impressed by the service and, especially, by the food.
Staff is willing, but uncoordinated and therefore appears to be somewhat chaotic dealing with requests. The food, mostly presented in buffet style, lacks refinement, choice and could be better presented.
The same is somewhat true for the rooms. Our deluxe room was big and had a marvelous view on the ocean. the finishing and attention to detail was in our view not on a 5 star level. This is also true for the cleanliness in general.
All in all, we spent a very relaxing week at the Seacliff in Zanzibar, but expected a bit more given the very positive comments about this hotel.
- 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. Situated on our property is the first and only world-class 9 hold 18 tee golf course in Zanzibar. We boast a full size driving range, practice greens, Pro-Shop with all our golfing needs and apparel, clubs to hire, carts and Club House on the beach. A golf pro is in attendance at all times. Sea Cliff Resort & Spa really is the place to visit. ... more less
