I always enjoy my stay at Cabana Beach to the utmost. The people....staff...are very friendly and helpful. It is wonderful to walk into one's favourite holiday place and be greeted on you name!, like an old friend. We've been going to CBeach since 1993, and it is still my first choice. Even the kitties in the garden are friendly. The...

We have stayed at the Cabanas the last 4 years and our stays have always been wonderful. Spotlessly clean rooms. Beautiful gardens, lovely pool and great service all round. The Cabanas is very central to everything and when we came down in May we flew down and did not even hire a car. There was no need.

We couldn't find anything to fault Cabana Beach except for the sometimes noisy construction nearby which was beyond their control. As it was behind the complex it didn't really affect the pleasure of our stay. From the friendly, helpful and efficient staff at the front desk to the room cleaning staff, we couldn't fault this very comfortable and pleasant holiday...

More than ten years we stay at Cabana Beach for 7 days around mid April. Our family always look forward to our time share in Umhlanga. We only have good memories and experiences - comfortable, safe, spacious. Early morning sunrise walks on the beach front promenade is a part of the magic!
