The resort was amazing and definitely the ideal place to visit when you need to relax and enjoy the serenity Zanzibar has to offer. The staff were attentive, friendly and very helpful. We were on an all Inclusive package and their All Inclusive menu is definitely worth while, most things are covered. The rooms were clean and linen and towels... More

The service was excellent, very kind people.Excellent food. Nice shows and music by dinner outside, looking at the sea, that is every day 'a party'. The sea isn't not so nice at this side of the island, but the swimmingpool makes it good.

Picturesque hotel situated about 30 minutes from the airport. A 20 minute drive from Stone Town. Well maintained buildings, gardens and pools. The hotel offers paddle boats, pools, horse riding, a beautiful golf course and kayaking. There is also a spa on site - a bit on the pricey side coming from SA. But good value when coming from Europe... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Driving into Sea Cliff Resort & Spa you know you have found something special. The 4 km road through a coconut plantation that leads to the hotel is a reminder of the Zanzibar of old. Peace and tranquility, no other hotels or busy roads just open space and palm trees.As you enter the courtyard filled with tropical flowers and palms the view of the ocean stands before you. With our traditional makuti roofs and Arabic towers lit by brass lights you know this is not a typical hotel. Its an hotel built with our location in mind. It is a unique combination of modern facilities mixed with the original exotic architecture of historical Zanzibar. Situated on our property is the first and only world-class 9 hold 18 tee golf course in Zanzibar. We boast a full size driving range, practice greens, Pro-Shop with all our golfing needs and apparel, clubs to hire, carts and Club House on the beach. A golf pro is in attendance at all times. Sea Cliff Resort & Spa really is the place to visit. ... more   less
