We just stayed at the Sea Cliff Resort and had a wonderful time. Eva manages everything well and welcomes all into the Sea Cliff community upon arrival. The rooms have everything one needs in the suite for cooking. Jenni makes sure rooms are clean and daily needs are met. What we enjoyed most is the beach is within eyesight and restaurants and stores within a couple blocks walk. Come and relax with the friendly folks at the Sea Cliff.

Hotel's Favorite
I worked during COVID being an “essential worker” & needed a me-cation desperately. Wanted to find a place without elevators that represented the true feel of this beautiful beach town. I called a few places and Eve at Sea Cliff was the first to reply (within an hour). She was most helpful and I booked a king standard (the only room left... I immediately started second guessing my quick decision. So I looked sea cliff on google maps to actually see how close to ocean & restaurants. One listing on the map said “NO FRILLS “ motel.. Did this mean no a/c ?no tv? no coffee maker? Sea cliff does not have a tv it has TWO TVs one in king bedroom, one in spacious living room. A/c through out & granite counter tops in fully equipped kitchen.” The atmosphere is so relaxing, the rooms squeaky clean location two steps to pool seconds from beautiful beach. If this is what “no frills, standard king” is then count me in....I will be returning in late April. Having worked in hotel myself Eve is the perfect definition of what a general manager should be. She is on top of every aspect of this property. She is discrete yet so welcoming. I don’t post on trip advisor that often but this hidden gem motivated me to write this review

Our first visit to Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and the Sea Cliff Resort certainly will not be our last. This little gem is situated close to everything, food, entertainment, shopping and is an ideal getaway spot to escape the winter doldrums. You can walk everywhere and the beautiful beach is just across the street. Eva made our arrival and departure easy and accommodated any requests we had. Our suite was well stocked, clean and sanitized and so comfortable and Jenni does a great job keeping everything that way. The regular vacationers that enjoy the Sea Cliff every year were so welcoming and friendly and by the time we had to leave we felt like family! Everyone was eager to help us find the best places to eat and enjoy the tropical breezes, beverages and entertainment. You will not regret a stay at the Sea Cliff.

Another wonderful two weeks spent at the Sea Cliff Resort! Eva , the manager, with her warm and welcoming personality, makes you feel right at home -and always goes the extra mile to make you happy. Jenni not only keeps your place sparkling but her sparkling personality and warm smile is second to none. The Sea Cliff is a small place with a big personality- people are friendly, location is perfect, pool is delightful and the view makes my heart happy! My home away from home!

It's always like coming home to a clean and comfortable apartment. The beach is right across the street, and many good restaurants are a short walk away. Eva is very welcoming (and has a great lending library too), she has fostered a beautiful sense of community among the guests. Looking forward to returning next year!

I stayed at the Sea Cliff 30 years ago as a child and it was just as wonderful experiencing it again all these years later with my family and little one. The Sea Cliff is the jewel of Lauderdale by the Sea! The staff is exceptional, the rooms are spacious and beautiful and the location is ideal. Highly recommend!

I cannot say enough great things about the Sea Cliff Resort. The location is perfect, the rooms are clean and updated, and the pool is perfect always getting a lot of sun. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Whether you are solo, with your spouse, or family this is the place to be in LBTS. One parking spot per room so you can rent a car or bring your own. It’s also a perfect location to walk into town or cross the street and you’re at the beach. Don’t forget your sunscreen.

You cannot go wrong booking the Sea Cliff for your stay in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Eva is a wonderful host, ensuring you have everything you need for a marvellous stay. Our room was spacious, clean and inviting. We started each day with the sunrise at the beach, and the private balcony with each room was where we spent each evening before diner, unwinding after a perfect day playing in the sand and surf. We loved the pool at the Sea Cliff as well, so magical to have your own pool footsteps from the beach no less! We look forward to seeing you again soon Eva ❤️

We arrived to the Sea Cliff the day after Christmas. We were greeted by Jennifer. She was very welcoming. We had an awful experience traveling and to arrive at the Sea Cliff to a friendly face and a nice comfy King Size Bed was refreshing. The views are spectacular. The room is so cozy. I’ve had a smile on my face since day one! Thank you Eva!
