The Sea Cliff has a beautiful outlook with relaxing surroundings. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and well kept, the pool is great and the food at the karambezi restaurant is good. There are also shops and other restaurants close by. Definitely recommend staying here in Dar.

The Sea Cliff is my favorite hotel when in Dar on business because it is a retreat away from the traffic and bustle of Dar es Salaam. I recently had the opportunity to stay with my family over the New Year weekend and we were treated to a relaxed and friendly time at the Sea Cliff. Although the prices are...

Good location. Luxury rooms. Nice staff. Only one robe, one set of slippers and one pretty small bottle of water Provided. For this price? Reserved on booking.com, but check in confused since site said prepayment needed, but hotel had no record of payment. Sigh. Otherwise, all fine. Pool, beach, places to eat. Otherwise feels remote. Comfy bed. Nice amenities.

The hotel is beautifully located at the Cliff on the Indian Ocean. It is a bit cozy. It has a swimming pool and the rooms are nice and clean. The restaurant has wide variety of selections but the service is a bit slow for the price they charge. It is close to the city center and has vibrant night life.

Definitely one of the best hotels in Dar, the rooms are cosy yet really modern. Make sure you book the sea facing rooms, views are really amazing. The food is really good but rather expensive, The Karembezi restaurant situated in the hotel is where you want to go for sundowners and meals, the outside deck area is unbelievable. If you...

I have only stayed in this hotel in Dar Es Salaam, a magnificent oceanfront hotel that is well run, with amazing views in the morning and evening. I also feel it can be a good holiday destination en route to the other exotic destinations Tanzania and Zanzibar are famous for.

My 3rd trip to Dar and staying at the Sea Cliff. Rooms are nice and comfortable. Has a good pool that I used for swimming. Good breakfast with fresh juices...converts to restaurant that has a good buzz of activity at night. Also ate at the Indian restaurant which is also good.

Generally stay at Sea Cliff when in Dar on business. On the peninsula away from the city which makes it peaceful. Very comfortable rooms and good service. Restaurants serve great food too. Always good to be by the ocean too.
