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.

Great experience. Thank you so much Pamela from house keeping for making my stay very pleasant. Well done. Special thanks to Patrick, night manager. You've always been leading from the front and exceptional leadership skills. Humbled my brother.

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.

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and the service was definately above average. Staff were very helpful and friendly (Nana at the reception always willing to assist) and the restaurant provides a marvelous view of the ocean. I would definitely visit again.

I have been coming to this hotel for a number of years on business, but always seem to feel as if I am at least partly on vacation. Great location, good food & friendly staff are some of the things that make this hotel a pleasure to visit.

Lovely hotel, excellent service & food, nice rooms. Something rare to find in Dar. The best is to sit in the outside part of the restaurant, to enjoy a nice drink and the seafood platter which is delicious and to have a look down at the waves. Close to the hotel is a small shopping center.

I love Sea Cliff Hotel. I've been there thrice now and it does make you want to relax. It has a most amazing breakfast view and friendly staff as well. The food is really good too and it's location is good for venturing out to check out different spots for food or just to clear your head.

Whilst this hotel is starting to show it's age, the rooms are nice, and the location stunning. I was on a business trip, and it felt more like being on vacation. The restaurant on the terrace made our group a fantastic albeit rather expensive seafood platter. One of the best that I have ever had.
