My wife and me spent 2 weeks at Pearls earlier this Aug. We were travelling with a 11 month old baby so we were looking for a nice quiet service apartment and we found that in Pearls. The location is excellent - right on the promenade with direct access to it. It also is right next to the big hotels... More

Excellent location in terms of access to the beach. The apartment we stayed in was very average for the price and the overall development is still a building site. The apartment was also not well kept and seemed to be suffering from a cockroach infestation.

The Pearls definitely has an excellent location with lot of restaurants and shops around. There is also a great pool area and easy access to the beach. Unfortunately, the 2 bedrooms apartment that we stayed at has almost zero sea view. One of the rooms actually facing the huge construction site next door. The construction works start early in the...

We stayed at a 3-bedroom apartment on the 8th floor of the Pearl Breeze building. Absolutely immaculate and modern. I couldn't fault the apartment on a single thing. Amazing views from every single bedroom, the kitchen, lounge, and dining room, as well as, a stunning balcony that runs around the entire apartment. The only flaw with the Pearls is the... More

I stayed here for a month in August 2012. Everything about this place is really nice. Awsome sea view from every nook and corner of the apartment. The place is very well furnished. The swimming pool area is the best place to hangout on a sunny day. The apartment is very close to Umhlanga Village which has all good restaurants,... More

Am I the only one out there that thinks it is stink the way a few hotel/accommodation providers want full payment months in advance? I was really taken aback by The Pearls inflexible policy in this regard. I arrange tours all over Southern Africa for groups and have never come across such an unhelpful approach. I was happy to pay... More

We visited The Pearls in February 2012 and what a lovely flat. We had one of the 'Tides' units and had lovely sea views. The unit had air-conditioning which is a must have in Umhlanga for the month of February. The unit was up market and very well furnished. The main bedroom had a lovely spacious bathroom. The second and... More
