I had to have my sliding door facing the ocean closed every day because the guest adjacent to me persisted to smoke everyday. I left the resort with...

Perhaps it was the time of the year - almost school holidays - but I did not find it very relaxing. Modern music blared all day and the only way to escape it was to leave the hotel.. Otherwise, I cannot fault the hotel at all. Staff are wonderful. Position is wonderful. Room very clean. Bed extremely comfortable. Haven't slept...

Love going to Umhlanga Sands and the surrounding areas. Lovely gardens, view and atmosphere. A treasure! My grandson absolutely loves the place and was kept entertained. Very central within walking distance to shops and a lovely walk along the beach front.

We booked a week with our timeshare. We've struggled in the past to get accommodation here. It was lovely. The staff were fantastic. The pool area was wonderful although the restaurant service a bit slow. Our room was comfortable and perfect for us. We look forward to booking again soon.
