One of the best hidden germs. I can't wait to make another booking. Don't leave without trying their breakfast, its out of this world. Oh and the 180 degree view of the ocean from your room stunning. One thing which i think management can improve on is to make sure that the main gate is always closed. I was issued...

Rooms were cleaned daily. Our needs were met to our entire satisfaction. Our kids were safe and enjoyed every moment. Thank you to the staff, the care and going the extra mile to ensure our time away, before hustle and bustle of school and work, is relaxed and enoyed thoroughly!

What's in a name you may ask. Everything. What a surprise when I arrived at uMthunzi Hotel and Conference Centre. Great ambiance, comfortable and spacious rooms. The staff was awesome too. Very friendly and approachable. Definitely worth it.

Lovely hotel, however i think geared up more for conferences and not for holidays. No a la carte menu, not much service by the pool. Poor communication to guests should something go wrong like no water. Vincent was really good though and the staff for the most part were friendly. Rooms are spacious and great beds.
