we stayed at coastlands for a family getaway. Although the check in left a lot to be desired, the beautifully decorated hotel with the amazing beach view made up for it. The hotel interior has a cruise ship feel in its construction. The breakfast catered for all tastes. the hotel has a close proximity to Gateway shopping centre and the... More

We stayed over for a wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel. Staff at the front desk were helpful. Our room had a great view of the ocean. The entire hotel is decorated with classy and elegant fittings, ornaments and wallpaper. Our room was exceptionally spacious, very clean and had all amenities necessary for a stay. I especially...

Umhlanga has always been our favourite destination for a quick weekend getaway, its has the beaches, a huge selection of restaurants and of course Gateway. Being a very frequent visitor to Umhlanga, we have stayed at nearly every hotel in the area, and we can say that Coastlands has been our most memorable stay. Check-in staff were very friendly and...

A very good choice in Umhlanga provided you are willing to deal with the peak hour traffic in and around the hotel. Only makes sense if you have business in the area. The rooms are very big with big windows that provide awesome light and views of the area. Dining options are good and the buffet offers a very good... More

I've stayed here twice. It's located within walking distance from the Gateway Shopping Centre. Close to beaches and rooms has lovely sea views. The food is good but don't expect bacon for breakfast as Halaal quisine is served. Rooms are modern with spacious bathrooms. One of the better hotels I have every stayed in. The pool is situated on the... More

We stayed here for the weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. The hotel is very modern. Great reception area and bar.. Spacious modern rooms . Nice breakfast including lamb ribs and chops. Not a very good pool area. The saffron restaurant has a wonderful seafood buffet. Prawns and steaks are made to order. All in all a great hotel. The... More

My husband and i only stayed in this hotel for one night and it was very comfortable. amazing bed and pillows, good size rooms. Nice good breakfast, the staff are very attentive. Only negative point is if you get a road facing room, it is very noisy.

We stayed here overnight because of a business function here the next day. Although they forgot to record our booking, they made up for the error by jumping through hoops to ensure that our every need was seen to. The room is immaculate, the view spectacular, and it seems that dinner, and breakfast are going to be memorable. Dinner isn't... More

Stayed at Coastlands for two nights. Friendly staff although they kept asking us to pay for items (in cash) that was delivered to our room - They obviously forgot to mention this to us at check in. Room was beautifully decorated with king size bed. Bathroom spacious and clean. Really enjoyed the size of the room. The restaurant was excellent... More
