Many activities to keep your kids busy, restaurants in the hotel, which provide high standard food, good service and professional staff. Rooms are great, beds are comfortable, you can hear the waves from your rooms, which gives you a nice quality sleep. All the roooms have air cons

Ants kept coming in from outside 'trap door' at end of passage into the kitchen. Hand Basin tap continued to drip water - both should be checked out and seen to for future guests. As always, the place to be! - wish it could be for longer!!!

I booked a week at Umhlanga Sands for a much needed vacation and as a special treat for a milestone birthday. While my room was lovely - had everything I needed, clean, comfy, with gorgeous views of the Indian Ocean - I could not enjoy even one second of it. The hotel should have told me at the time of...

Nice enough view of the beach. Balcony was very small. The room was meant to be a honeymoon suite but was pokey and unimpressive. Bed was okay, nothing great. All in all, it felt a bit lacking for the price tag. The beach is gorgeous though and some of the restaurants in the area are to die for!

Beautiful Hotel, with clean rooms and stunning view. The staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Everything is within walking distance and if you need to get to Gateway the staff at Reception call you a cab, which is there within 5mins. The Pub has awesome live music on a Friday evening. Will definitely go back.

I booked a 6 sleeper, however it was changed to 2 x 4 sleepers a day before my arrival. The hotel representative phoned me and organise this with me and explained the reasons, and I agreed.

Great service from great staff. The rooms are stylish, always clean, good aircon and the best view anyone can ask for. The best location for anybody with teenage daughters. Everything in a safe walking distance from Umhlanga Sands. I liked everything about Umhlanga Sands and what I liked the least is the the day that I leave but as Arnold... More

This resort is fantastic for a family breakaway, we thoroughly enjoyed our week away. The facilities and rooms were very well kept and clean. The beaches in front of the resort is gorgeous. The resort is also very close to amenities, shops and many restaurants. The only negative was the sour faced, unfriendly porters, the rest of the staff were... More

We were totally happy with the actual property itself. Surrounding and offerings were of satisfaction. It tmay be an option to consider a shuttle for the sands to assist travellers for those that fly into the DBN.

perfect family getaway especially with little kids. Lovely adult pool with heated water. Close proximity to the promenade and beach. Friendly and extremely accommodating staff. Rooms could be better serviced and better maintained!
