  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Room was clean and comfortable and all the facilities were up to date. Breakfast buffet was not as extensive as in the past but probably has to do with current health situation. Had a good run in the casino as well which always makes for a nice trip.

    Great views

    Amazing views from the pool and bar areas. Service is ok, but were quite sexiest towards my girlfriend. I had to insist on her fair treatment. My room was very pricey for what it was and without breakfast - industrial scenes outside Of the window. I have got mixed feelings about the entire experience, but would recommend you try to stay there for a night or two. One warning - the bar is full of prostitutes in the evening.

    Overall stay

    I enjoyed my travel at Sea cliff Hotel, I was a bit hesitant about staying at this hotel because of the pictures I saw online, but I ended up loving the room and the hotel. For the rooms, I stayed in a deluxe room; the room was lovely, I liked the decor, the toilet however was smaller than I expected. I wish they improved their TV and channel list and availability. I wish the breakfast was a buffet rather than A la carte , but I guess they are minimizing food sharing due to COVID-19 impact. Overall, the stay was pleasant, I loved the room, the service was exceptional, It was quiet and nice. The scenery is gorgeous especially if you seat by the Karambezi restaurant. I would definitely stay here again.

    The bathroom was terrible and I got infection as a result. The water was filling the whole place due to poor drainage. The restaurants are excellent. I didn't like the smell in the bedsheet

  • 4.0.Fair


    I was disappointed with my stay at the Sea Cliff. I booked a deluxe sea facing room, when I got to my room, I checked and could not see the sea from room. I was directly above the roof and trees. I called to the reception to ask about this and if I could be switched rooms, and they said no. I felt ripped off. I wanted to order room service, when I called they weren't answering. The reception told me they would have the room service call me back. Half an hour later, still no call back. When I called back, same thing: reception said they would call me back. After waiting for 10-15 minutes, I have up. I was getting ready for bed in the bathroom, when I heard someone banging on my door shouting 'room service': instead of calling me back, they thought it would be better to come get my order in person, past midnight!!! Very disappointed with my stay, will most definitely not stay there again.
