This is a vast property and great rooms. Exploring this hotel itself would take a day. Lot of activities and fun can be had in this hotel. Only drawback is mobile and internet signals are poor. So you are disconnected from the outside world.

It was everything I imagined and more. The food was amazing, the rooms were to die for, the staff were like family. Don't get my boyfriend started on the views because they were breathtaking. This place is a must go

I found Sea Cliff from the Entertainer app, checked out their website, and they seemed not bad. "Average" is my review for the overall stay at SeaCliff service wise. We were charged a US$10 tray charge for room service (on top of service & other taxes), which the ladies that brought our food insisted we pay in cash. And this... More

I don't normally review as I don't like people using reviews to gain power over a hotel. But just look at the photos. Right next to the main bars and restaurants. Two jackhammers. Amazing. And unapologetic. Manager just says nothing he can do. Constant noise. Really expensive. Not what you pay for. I very much doubt I would stay here... More

I cant say enough about the staff, the food, drinks, property, golf course and gorgeous water! Its a must stay and the Sea View King Deluxe was spacious and the touch of flowers on your bed each day was perfect.

This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing, fun and adventurous vacation. Let's start with relaxing: the infinity pool overlooks a beautiful view of the ocean and the pier, which in the morning makes you feel like you're just part of the ocean while eating breakfast. There's plenty of sun loungers and quiet places to sit to enjoy the... More

Staff are very smart sharp and children friendly. We had a lovely summer holiday. Best view. A bit disappointed when it comes to food not the best to match the rest of my experience. There is room for improvement.

Great staff who went out of the way to make us feel welcome. Good Food with an interesting variety. The tandoori chicken was fantastic. This really is a good hotel set up for a family of 5 with many activities on hand. The daily shuttle into Stone Town is very convenient. We went on an all inclusive package that made... More

I booked this holiday as a surprise for my husbands 40th. I decided to bring the kids along. Being ages 9 & 6, I felt they could manage the flight and tours in Zanzibar. The airport is a bit like a cattle market, no ques, but once you are done with that your transfer will be there waiting. We had... More

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
