Great hotel, super friendly staff, stunning setting, great pool, gym and spa. Only disappointment was the size of the room (superior) and the shower installation (rather old).

2/5 Poor

Business traveler, Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
Sea Cliffs at first glance is impressive. The amenities are great and Allan the manager is very helpful. After a shrunken shirt despite clear written instructions, was replaced with 2 more. Any spoons at the restaurant are hard to find. The service team generally could care less and was apathetic. Charles was the one exception in the restaurant. The rooms were not cleaned on several occasions and we found they were not actively replacing bet sheets. A second room due to itching in the first found a hair in the linen and the sheets were literally short sheeted. At checkout the bill was wrong and had charges to another person with a female russian name. It took over an hour and several translators to explain this issue and a laundry bill for 29USD was missing at checkout. The wifi is generally not usable for any work related tasks and of the 25MPS to the hotel, any one device often is at 2MPS or 1. The golf course is a bonus, as is the jetti pier, and two infinity pools making this a unique property. Golf service was terrible as the golf assistant did not write down the booking for 9AM and gave it to anther client, but the lessons were great. One instructor present at 9AM and confusion. This was on top of the fact a golf cart could not be made available to get there from the lobby. The bikes are all unusable but one. Sea cliffs has alot ot offer. Service is not one of them. Terrible service. The worst I have seen while living in hotels for 3 years. Awful
