The apartment is nice but please be aware that there is Serious construction happening on the premises which is very noisy and makes it impossible to even open windows in the day. As a result you have to be inside the apartment without fresh air

The appartment was spacious and well laid out. However, it was poorly kept; i.e. very dirty, broken utilities (dishwasher), poor internet connectivity, etc. A service lady came once a day spending less than a hour in a 3 bedroom apartment, simply not sufficient.

The unit is very expensive and then you get a view of the construction site with heavy duty machinery starting to work at 7am. This was not communicated as the websites only show the sea view. We couldn't get the wifi to work and lots of stuff is broken (ie. towel rails, glass tops). This is definitely not what one... More

Don’t let the 5 star rating fool you. The service at The Pearl in Umhlanga was shocking! The lady we booked with was so rude, her name was Solina. I asked for service and she said I was asking for preference, when all I asked for was if there was a place where my boss could store his bags as... More

The Pearls made up of self catering apartments as well as residential apartments. The security is really tight, so when getting in and out of you apartment you have to have a security disc. I felt it a bit tiresome because there are so many doors to go through to get to the pool or the beach. Apart from that,... More

Yes its was a 2 bhk house we rented while we stayed in Nov 2011. Good location with beach view especially sun rise. But there is nothing much to do in pearls then. But a great place to relax. You can also

Wifi did not work the entire week. Decor is substandard at best. Carpets are not clean, patio furniture is cheap and dirty. Terrible water pressure. Guest room shower was totally unusable. Overlooks a building site.

This view is breathtaking! Glass from floor to ceiling right on the beach. I felt like I was in another world. We were on the 8th floor. Spacious with all the essentials. Big kitchen and entertainment area. We had friends over all the time. Apartment was serviced daily. I didn't want to leave. Gorgeous place, memories made.
