The staff at the Sea Cliff really bend over backwards to make you enjoy your experience there. They will honor your requests, if possible, and strive to do all that they can to make your time there exciting and fun. The hotel is fairly new and the grounds are well maintained. The buffet food is very good with a lot of variety. Several nights a week there is great entertainment after dinner
There are many activities for free all day long including: mountain bike rides, tennis, ocean kayaks, Hobie Cat sailing, paddle board, wind surfing, ping pong, pool tables, and more. Kamcha is the man to see for activity reservations and he tries hard to keep you active.
Hamiz, the concierge, will arrange any tour directly from the hotel. I bought a 2 day scuba package of 2 tank dives. They have bigger packages too. A van picked us up from in front of the lobby and transported us to the northeast end of the island in about 30 minutes. Beautiful ride. The PADI dive center was Scubafish Zanzibar, a truly outstanding place. The staff are really safety conscious and they know the Mnemba Island area well. I didn't bring a single item and all equipment (in excellent condition) was provided in the package for a very reasonable fee.
The hotel pool area and beach are comfortable with lots of shade and lounge chairs. The pier in front also has a lounge area too and you can jump right into the ocean when the tide is in. When the tide is out you can walk out to the ocean directly from the pier and swim.
There is free transportation to Stone Town 2 times daily for an exciting travel-shopping-intercultural experience. The people there are friendly. They are glad to have tourism and will try to provide for you what you want. I had no problem getting medicine in one of the pharmacies there.
All in all it was a 9 day dream vacation in Zanzibar at Sea Cliff----they make it happen!
