There was a pleasant atmosphere and the weather was also good except for one rainy day. The resort staff were always friendly and helpful. This in itself makes this resort a good option as an exchange.

Our holiday at Umhlanga Sands was very relaxing. The resort had a great family atmosphere and you could choose to do as much or as little as you chose. The proximity of the rooms to the beach was excellent. You could relax in your room and watch and listen to the sea!
