The rooms facing the ocean are the best. The hotel's greatest asset is its staff. The staff are polite and very friendly. The management is so very helpful. If you want something just mention it, you will get it. The restaurant is situated at a place where one would get an ocean view from any angle. The food is good....

The hotel benefits from a great location with sea views all round. The staff are very friendly and the food is dependable with a particularly good breakfast buffet. The rooms are in need of freshening up and the air conditioning is very noisy but they have a great outlook and are a good size.

First time at this hotel and also first time in Dar so I don't have any local comparison. Chose it based on the reviews and must admit I'm surprised it received the praise it does. It's in a nice location, great sea views and outlook. The hotel itself is in need of an overhaul, very dated furnishings and all looking...

The Sea Cliff is at the tip of the peninsula, so if you are coming to Dar es Salaam to wander around the city and get a feel for the ambiance, I would not recommend staying here. However if you are traveling on business (as I was) and want a pleasant place to eat and sleep (and swim and exercise),...

Very nice setting above the water -- Sea Cliff is an apt name as the hotel sits up above the water as it crashes into a small cliff -- no beach here. There is a pool, but I had no time. There was a small gym, but at 90F/35 C, air conditioning would have made it more appealing. Very friendly...

Had a comfortable 4 nights in this hotel. One star off for the fact there was a casino on the premises, which doesnt suit the hotel with the big sign in the front.
