I thought it was going to be a beach front holiday, the beach very disappointing did not swim once in the ocean! The staff were unfriendly and did not even say goodbye when we left!
Not much variety of food and it was cold or tepid and the drinks were unrecognisable so watered down.
Pool was delightful, as was the view.

Jambo

It was very disappointing to read your review and the fact that Sea Cliff Resort & Spa Zanzibar did not meet your expectations. Zanzibar is tidal and this does make beach swimming sometimes invonvenient, however we do feel that with 3 pools and one even set in beach sand a fabulous jetty with access to the sea and then the private beach offers choices tomoir guests.

We hope that you enjoyed your visit to Zanzibar regardless.

Thank you for your review.

Dear Sea Cliff Team:

Living here in Zanzibar means having such an assortment of different establishments to visit, where I chose yours for my fiance's birthday. So glad that I did:

From a welcoming bottle of Champagne to a flower arrangement on the bed; a private table for the sunset with an amazing Sea Food Platter served for dinner and an Amazing Cheesecake for dessert- couldn't have asked for anything more!

Within close proximity to Stone Town, it makes for such a peaceful escape with a beautiful view of the ocean and such a large pool, making it quite hard to leave! Maintenance and consistency is seen to be the greatest challenge in Zanzibar: with such a large resort offering many activities and amenities, they have done an amazing job to keep standards to a deserving All- Round 5 Star rating.

Thank you Heather, Kerry and the rest of the team for making this an unforgettable one!

Amazed by the incredible service, the friendliness of all the hotel staff. The property takes your breath away from every angle you stand. The magic ocean that appears and disappears depending on the day was awing. Loved the availability of the water sports, the kayak, the catamaran, the mountain bikes.
Undoubtedly, one of the most pleasant, best spent days of my African adventures!

The best holiday ever! Food was amazing! Service was beyond amazing! Staff beyond friendly and helpful! There is really nothing bad to say about the resort and its staff. Got engaged during this holiday and nothing was too much for the personnel to help me make this special they pulled out all the stops!!!!!!

This resort really ticked all the boxes and has everything you need or want. They upgraded us upon arrival to a sea view room and upon hearing about our engagement upgraded us again to a honeymoon room. We were on half board (breakfast and dinner) and even then the bill was not close to what I thought it would be, real value for money. From just lounging at the pool to organizing day trips for us nothing was too much trouble.

Can recommend Sea Cliff to anyone!! I read through the reviews before booking my holiday and most if not all complaints is utter nonsense!! Looking forward to returning again in the near future.
