We stayed at Sea Cliff 5 nights after three back-to-back safaris. This was the relaxing end to an action-packed honeymoon. We had planned and looked forward to this trip for nearly 2 yrs. The honeymoon package is filled with wonderful and generous treats - a welcome bottle of champagne, fruit platter, and floral display on your door; couples massage, and private romantic dinner of your choice.
Arriving exhausted, we were welcomed with cold drinks into the beautiful lobby with its modern Arabic-inspired architecture and antique artistic accents. The ambience is unique, beautiful, and peaceful with gentle waves crashing below. The gym and sports facilities are excellent (even for decent strength training or lap swimming). Food is abundant, beautifully presented, with estensive culinary options to suit any taste.
We didn't receive the honeymoon package. Other honeymooners were next door and we began to wonder why we didnt get equal treatment. After discussing with management, we learned that our travel agent failed to notify SeaCliff that we'd booked a honeymoon package.
The General Manager, Abre Esterhuizen, upon learning how much we had been looking forward to this, personally arranged the package details immediately and delivered fresh flowers and a welcome note to our room. This personal human touch was greatly appreciated! He also gracisously offered us a complimentary tour to make amends.
In the end, the honeymoon pacakge was wonderful! The catering director, Mark, organized a personalized and romantic dinner overlooking the sea. Delicious and Generous portions!
The spa is excellent--reasonably priced services, nice sauna and steamroom, tranquil ambience, friendly staff who gave us great massages.
Summary--Sea Cliff offers tranquil ambience, delicious food in abundance, plenty of amenities, and staff are friendly. Management is approachable and responsive to customer concerns.
Wonderful and memorable experience!
