No warm witnessed from the staff, let it be the waiters apart from one Indian Sanjeev who too good care of us in providing us the Cusine of our choice and one local who was given the duty of welcoming and briefing the property. The local service staff attitude was if they were forced to work without wages. Sorry to... More

Nice room with a great beach side view. The food is great in the mornings and evenings with some shows/performances on the side. Very nice greenery with a nice pool. Also a chalet bar extension on the beach is great to see the sunset!

It was on the beach and staff was ok. The property is on the cliff so you may not be able to go in the water. The pool was very nice. Food was ok - I was not found of bathrooms in my room. it needs some updating.

I would blindly go back to Seacliff again. The rooms, entire hotel, water sports, people, food, the view...everything was perfect. Out visit to Zanzibar has become memorable. I can't thank the staff enough...Mr. Sandeep & Mr. Rahul. They were always ready to help us and fulfill our requests. How can we forget Chef Pradeep? He cooked the best finger licking... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Sea Cliff Resort and it's a great little hotel with good facilities. We took advantage of the 'Entertainer' travel offer and got a 2 night stay for the price of 1. The rooms are excellent and very comfortable with lots of amenities. Food at lunch was good and buffet was average-good. I'd say it... More

I was at sea cliff for 3 nights as part of my trip to Z. The staff are so nice and friendly especially Asia, Issak and the Indian manager who wears reading glasses. The property is beautiful and views are out of this world. Food was ok...nothing extraordinary... Not a wide variety. Rooms are clean and room service was amazing.... 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
