In Durban I stayed at Sibaya Lodge. This is a wonderfull tourist attraction and a great spot. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My favorie part is the swimming pool aera, it is a great place to relax on a nice hot day. The food looks nice and tasted nice. Service is very good. The rooms are big for... More

Shared a room with my friend, two double beds, TV, desk, safe and a nice size bathroom. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good although there was no soya milk and they knew I was vegan. Still had plenty to eat so was happy! Staff very pleasant.

We stayed in a family, sea facing room. The view was beautiful but the room is too small to accommodate 4 people, as advertised. There are only 2 mugs and 2 sets of things to make coffee. There is no bar fridge. There is a vending machine in the passage. Not sure this counts as 4 star accommodation. Breakfast was... More

We Stayed at the Sibaya early January 2015 for a few nights. Rooms were not well kept. Staff at Reception very unfriendly. Apart from Wendy the cleaner who was very helpful and pleasant., we were not impressed with the rest of the team.

The outside areas are beautiful and really appealing, however the inside leaves a lot to be desired. The view is to die for though...endless views of the deep blue sea and if you like watching ships then it's just perfect. At night it's stunning as the ships turn on their lights against a black backdrop. Really beautiful!!! However, the room... More

Friendly helpfull staff but that is all. Breakfast is average everything is available but nothing is spectacular. Best of all is no room service not even a good cup of coffee or cuppicino!!! Rooms is very spacious but not one news channel on the TV. Very central to airport and Durban area.

As my son needed to take part in a soccer tournament, the lodge was ideal as it was close to the areas where we needed to be. We stayed from Monday to Saturday. Breakfast was excellent, pool area was good, the room was ample as we spent most of our time involved with the tournament away from the lodge. The... More

The hotel is nice. It is simple, neat and clean. Beds are comfy, showers nice and clean and the breakfast is simple but good. We stayed in a Family room and it was quite spacious. I would definitely stay here again, I think the location is great. Only "negative" is that the Casino complex itself takes a bit of a... More
