Fair 4.0
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.

Great place to stay
Good hotel and location. The 2 restaurants are very good and a good clean pool. was staying for a business trip so didn’t get time to explore the local area.

Great room and service, don't expect much else
The room was fantastic- clean and well maintained. I could not hear outside noises through my door. The concierge was extremely helpful and arranged several trips for us around the area. The pool and restaurants were OK- the dozens of ravens that use the pool to bathe in pooped on my coworker twice in 20 minutes; and the restaurant (cafe) served small portions of varying quality. The breakfast was excellent however. For comparison, I had just stayed at the nearby Slipway- which had much better pool, restaurants, and surrounding areas; but whose rooms were sub-par and noisy.

Excellent hotel
Hotel was having a few of the sea view rooms refurbished but it did not effect my stay. Both restraunt swerve excellent quality and priced very reasonably. There was always sun loungers available around the pool and the pool was kept clean and at a good temperature. Overall an excellent hotel, good location and friendly staff.

Great stay at Seacliff Hotel Dec 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Seacliff hotel, everything was as advertised on the website with friendly staff, great airconditioned rooms and lovely gardens and pool area facing the ocean. William from the Karambezi Cafe deserves a special thank you for accommodating us on the 31st without a reservation. We will definitely be visiting this establishment again and soon!

From pungent to perfect
Our stay was very pleasant over all. Our first room had some issues with the AC and a bit of a smell, but the hotel management remedied that by moving us to another room, which was perfect!

Nice scenery with super foods
The hotel location was very good and the surroundings and view was great. The breakfast and the selection and quality of the food was also amazing. The only negative point was the view of the room which was on the first floor overviewing a wall and some kind of storage area. So I kept the curtains down all the time. I was on a business trip so didn’t bother to ask for removing me to another room. I assume they might have granted the request if it was made.

Nice hotel in Dar
One of the nicest hotels in Dar with 2 nice restaurants, one on the terrace overlooking the ocean. It's one of the places where locals come to have dinner on special occasions. Well stocked minibar, large rooms (you can ask for the sea view ones!) and friendly staff. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work in the room, which wasn't ideal for me.
