Nice room, but a bit tight. The annoying thing was that every time someone ran a tap or bath it would literally wake me up, so I was up at 7 or so in the morning. Its great that there are restaurants on the premises and you can let the kids move around unattended. The beach access is fantastic.

Our first visit but definately not the last. Had all the ideas of visiting places in an around Durban but ended up not even starting my car for the whole week. Requested a unit on the highest level and got one on the 16th floor. Looking down on the beach with a 180 degree sea view resulted in many hours... More

My family and I enjoyed the holiday very much!! The amenities surpassed our expectations. The service was friendly and efficient. The kids loved the pool area and all the entertainment offered by the resort.

1. Basin had no plug / stopper. Asked it to be replaced on day 1 - never done 2. Non smoking policy is unacceptable. Only 4 tables at M&A allowed. Ridiculous. What happened to 25% 3. Kids entertainment becomes a pain for people with no kids. 4. My car tyre was deflated by someone in open parking - obviously not... More

I've already reviewed this hotel, and once again I cannot fault the staff and facilities. We had a great holiday, and entertainment staff, particularly Viv Subramony, were wonderful. Every day Viv made a point of going around and greeting everyone around the pool, and apart from knowing every kid's name and who they were, he also remembered most of the... More

What a lovely clean place to stay in! There is so much to do in the area. We walked everywhere i.e. to the shops, beach, restaurants, and felt very safe even quite late at night - 9pm. We also went on a strenuous hike through the 'Haiwaiin Forest' past Breakers resort. Could have stayed longer!

We booked the resort in January for a September visit. This is a timeshare hotel but bookable as a hotel is. We exchanged with Interval International and on arrival instead of a two bedroom unit we were allocated a one bedroom unit. Their description was "Living area with queen bed and bedroom with 2 singles". The bedroom was about 8... More

We are regulars at Umhlanga Sands for past 12 years and are totally familiar with the resort. We do booking through RCI. Not able to commit to a fixed week date otherwise would consider time share in resort. Negatives: 1. People smoking on balconies - better surveilance required - cameras. 2. Receptionist did not set up credit card to charge... More

There is no better place than the Umhalnga Sands Hotel. It is the most awesome place in the world. The rooms were clean and had lots of space. The swimming pools were amazing and the entertainment was out of this world.

Good value -- Ideally situated in Umhlanga- easy access to highway and other facilities. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends and will return fro another holiday with family, however would have preferred a fully self-catering facility.
