Thank you for the lovely review. There are now two helicopter based at Sea Cliff Hotel run by Whirlwinds Aviation offering leisure trips to a variety of destinations as well as airport transfers. At the moment, we have a special on airport transfers for just $150 pp each way (minimum 2 people) with a journey time of 10 minutes. Just let our Reservations Team if you would ike us to book this for you on your next trip. It is undoubtedly the most efficient and fun way to travel in Dar es Salaam!
Group stayed 3 nights after long flight. We found the atmosphere very relaxing, food was excellent and the service too. Lovely views and excellent staff. The restaurant on the edge of the ocean was fantastic.
Thank you for posting this nice review. I'm delighted your group were able to rest, relax and recharge!
This hotel has lovely direct ocean views and an excellent staff who really go out of their way to be friendly and service-oriented. For example, today I dropped off a bunch of flowers to be held at the reception and returned to my room to find them nicely arranged in a vase. The deluxe rooms are modern and well-furbished, with nice hardwood floors and a good (but not sumptuous) bathroom. The breakfast buffet is very generous and offers a wide selection of hot and continental items. While I saw mentions of air conditioning, hot water and other such items in other reviews, this was not our experience. A number of celebrities have stayed here, ranging from Angelina Jolie to Jane Goodall, and many members of royal families. Overall, it exceeded expectations. Would happily stay here again.
And a pleasure it is to read your review! As an independent hotel, word of mouth and recommendations on forums like Trip Advisor have such a big impact on us and we thank you sincerely for taking the time to write your review. I'm very glad to hear we succeeded in exceeding your expectations and hope we will have the opportunity to do so again.
The grounds are just gorgeous. The swimming pool is really nice. Rooms are spacious and have most of the amenities you would want. The food is the restaurant is really, a little bit expensive but not outrageous, and the staff are all very curteous and helpful. The only downside was the air conditioning. It just wasn't up to dealing with the humidity. The result was very damp air in the room--it took four days for the clothes I washed to dry. And internet service is slow and frequently goes down.
I'm glad that you found a peaceful oasis here after your busy day at work. There's something about being beside the ocean which is always so calming. I'm sorry to hear your air conditioning unit was working well enough - if you didn't report this to maintenance at the time, could we trouble you to send us an email so we can check? Dar es Salaam is humid so our units work very hard and need servicing more often than usual. We identified the internet issue given feedback from several other guests and have since increased the bandwidth to make sure it is both reliable and fast.
Our group stayed here overnight and found the palatial facilities to be perceptional. The feast we enjoyed in the restaurant at the edge of the Indian Ocean was an idyllic experience we will never forget.
There is nothing more rewarding than to read that a guest has left with happy memories that they will never forget. We are truly blessed with our magical surroundings and glad that we were able to share this with you and your group.
It was nice staying at the Cliff… I look forward to a return visit when I come to Dar. I enjoyed the warm reception and service from your excellent staff. The food was great and rooms were clean and comfortable to stay in.
And we very much look forward to welcoming you back! Karibu sana.
