Had a fantastic stay. Wonderful accommodations and great staff! The views are great and the staff is welcoming and helpful. There is a variety of restaurants and shopping just around the corner. Some of the clothing prices and souvenirs are a little over priced. But better options are a short taxi ride away. I will absolutely come again.

I really liked the Hotel Sea Cliff. It is located on the peninsula area of Dar es Salaam. It has beautiful views of the sea from the hotel. However, since the hotel sits on a cliff, you cannot access the beach. There is a pool near the cliff with nice views but the pool is a little on the small...

I've stayed twice in the past couple of weeks, both times in rooms facing the sea.... very nice! The location is excellent, at the end of peninsular surrounded by sea but also close to restaurants and shops; the facilities including a gym, pool and business centre are also good. The rooms are comfortable with fairly reliable internet but on both...

Have stayed here for a few days on business trips (my office very local) several times over last 2 years. Personally the room location is not vital for me but if you can (and definitely if on holiday) get a room facing the sea. Also note that those rooms above the front entrance can be a little noisy at night....

The thing about Dar es Salaam is that you do not want to spend any time on the roads. The traffic is horrible and can take hours to get anywhere. The Sea Cliff is in a great location, close to all the shops and services you might need with beautiful ocean views to boot. The hotel also has very comfortable...

The hotel is next to the sea..and I was give the room over looking the sea. Sounds of sea water hitting against the wall was soothing. Food at the continental restaurant was very nice. The staff are very friendly and excellent service. The downside was the traffic jam we had to endure from the airport.
