Sea Cliff - good for one night

This is a decent hotel in a great location to stay if you need to stay for one night. However, do not venture outside - all very much run down.
Eat on the terrace and/or try some of the excellent cakes, but do not eat in the Asian Restaurant which is a disaster. The food is terrible and the service is very very slow.
Apply mosquito repellent when inside your room as there are a lot (even if they spray) and risk of malaria is worst in DAR.
Note: the shops are closing early or are not open at all - a pity as they looked nice and sadly the shop owners loose business being too lazy to keep them open for longer.

Sea Cliff Hotel review

Didn't get to the hotel until quite late due to the infamous rush hour Dar es Salaam traffic (1 and a half hours in traffic jams) so barely saw it.

The room rate purchased included breakfast which was not served until 630 and I left the hotel at 545 - I'm not sure that this therefore makes much sense!

Would like to comment that Kearsley Safaris who took me to and from the airport were very good.

Sea Cliff Hotel review

We only stayed here one night, after our safari.

It was nice to have a big, clean room looking out over the sea while we got back to the outside world. It is a bit of a long drive to the airport but we thought it was worth it.

The area is popular with expats from embassies and NGO's and felt quite safe to wander around with several reasonable cafes and resturants next door to the hotel.

Sea Cliff Hotel review

We had one evening in Dar. We arrived at about 6ish in the evening. We had had this hotel recommended to us but spent nearly 2 hours in rush hour traffic to get there.

It was the wrong recommendation for an overnight stay in Dar.

We therefore did no more them eat, sleep and shower to leave at 6am the following morning. Therefore the review is inevitably slightly skewed.

The room was lovely, although the air con is loud. The shower, whem there was any water [which had failed when we got back from dinner] was brilliant.

Front of desk staff were a little stand-offish but the waiters were very nice
.
The location was great if you were staying in Dar for a couple of days but very bad for an overnight stop before the early flight home to the UK. The grading is therefore based on what we were looking for not on what was actually a very nice part of Dar.

Sea Cliff Hotel review

We were only here for a brief overnight stop and did not eat there nor use any of their facilities. The hotel was evidently of a very high standard. If we had any criticism it would be that it was too far from the airport and a bit OTT after bush camping

Sea Cliff Hotel review

Room not available on arrival but otherwise excellent.

Despite catering for travellers to the airport, breakfast service only available from 6am which is too late for UK flights

Great setting

We only stayed one night and so cannot really comment too much. The room was very nice and the staff in general very pleasant. However, the bell boy who carried up our cases insisted on more of a tip which obviously we didn't like.

The setting of the hotel is excellent, pool very good and we had a nice evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the sea.
