I am not a fan of big resort hotels so when a friend booked his 50th celebrations at Sea Cliff I was not expecting great things. He is a resident of Tanzania, visits Zanzibar a lot and has great taste, so I didn't think it would be too bad. From the moment we arrived until we left the whole place...

Dear tomas1974, Thank you for posting your comments on your recent stay in Zanzibar on Tripadvisor! Happy you have enjoyed your stay with us. At the time you were with us we had a small wedding party in-house and I gather that the noise could have come from them. We have had this small issue with our wifi and I...

The location is fantastic! The service and the staff is very friendly and competent - with a manager who was asking the guests if they can do something - will come back 100%! So many friendly people - and every evening different food under a motto

I had an amazing time at this great facility. The food, the service & the ambience was amazing. I can't wait to go back. The housekeeping was world class. I loved the fact that they did it twice a day just to ensure I was comfortable.

We had a lovely time (8 nights) at Sea Cliff Resort and Spa and cannot recommend it too highly. It was so relaxing.

We booked our room through Booking.com; the resort cancelled our reservation based on the availability of room although they kept selling the same type of room at a higher price. We consider this behaviour fraudulent.

It would be difficult to find fault with the Sea Cliff if it hadn’t been for the bare wires protruding from the lead to the iron in our room (see pic) coupled with no-one at the hotel seeming too concerned about it and that I had to ask 3 times for a replacement iron. The resort is located on a...

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
