“Great place to start a new adventure”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

The hotel has a nice casual atmosphere, the rooms are classic,lovely and have beautiful seaviews. I loved the evening meals outside on the terrace at the Karimbeze. We also tried their fine dinning restaurant (India/Chinese) and weren't disappointed. What more could you ask for when starting a new adventure

This hotel is clean, friendly staff and good food options within the hotel. The breakfast in the AM is awesome and delicious. Hotel staff can assist with any questions about local attractions and getting around. The pool is beautiful and the view of the ocean is unreal. Def worth it!

I am living in Dar and have used a number of their facilities. They have the best customer service in the area, with staff who know how to make you feel special. Don't hesitate to visit there- they also have stunning views across the ocean.

I love staying at the Sea Cliff. The sea-view rooms mean waking up to the exquisite view of the Indian ocean through palm trees and bougainvillea, add the soft breeze from the ocean, and you have paradise. Wonderful hotel staff, including the warm and wonderful Nana. The food is also really good with hard to resist desserts. Take my word, this hotel is worth it!!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a sea view room.

I recently made a business trip to the Sea cliff in Dar ES Salaam, the hotel is extremely nice but the annex accommodation that I was placed in was truly awful. The 'village' rooms were damp, smelly and infested. I reported the standard of the room but due to the hotel being full no alternative was given. As this was a conference visit, relocating to another hotel was not easy.

The hotel itself is very nice with a great bar, restaurants and cheerful staff. Such a shame the annex rooms were below standard.

Room Tip: Stay in the main hotel

Dear David-in-Malaysia,

Thank you for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor.

We are sorry to learn of the inconvenience you faced during your stay with us. Unfortunately, we were fully booked during that time and had no other alternative but to offer you a village room.

Please may I request you to treat this incident in isolation and let it not tarnish the impression of the hotel, as it is our sincere endeavour to provide you with the highest level of service and to ensure that your stay with us is comfortable.The housekeeping team has been notified of the room condition to initiate corrective measures.

We thank you for your valuable feedback and as it helps us review the quality and standard of our hotel and make necessary improvements. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally at sales@hotelseacliff.com the next time you wish you visit us.

Warm Regards,

Chandni Vithlani
