The staff were all courteous and willing to go the extra mile and the rooms were well maintained daily. The location of the resort was excellent with absolute stunning views of the ocean from the bedroom and the patio. The restaurants within the resort offered great service and meals too. Definitely will be back.

We struggled to get accommodation as it was school holiday time. We usually stay at Cabana Beach but it was full and we were lucky to get a Studio apartment at Umhlanga Sands. So pleased we did - the room was great the facilities and service were excellent - if only the weather had been better it would have been... More

We highly recommend Umhlanga Sands for holidays/business trips. My husband and I look forward to quiet getaways on our own out of season. During the school holiday we take a trip to Umhlanga Sands with our grandchild. There is so much entertainment for the children and the staff are so great. Best view and access to the sea!

The Umhlanga Sands Resort is one of the best places to go with your family. The entertainment for the children is fantastic with a fantastic team behind that! All the facilities in this resort are top notch and the staff are all amazing!

I bought a weeks timeshare from someone and I have to say the Sands is the best value for money I have spent in years. The staff are so friendly, nothing is ever a problem and the hotel is always neat and clean. Being right on the beach is also such a win, you don't have to travel anywhere for... More

We stayed at the sands for 1 week in September, overall the resort is average to good. We had a 6 sleeper room however it was way too cramped to accommodate 4 adults & 2 small kids so that resulted in one couple booking into a separate room. I would say the 6 sleeper is ideal for a family of... More

We stayed here for a week with our 2 yr old daughter. What created a problem was that the 2nd bedroom was attached to the kitchenette so we had to wake our daughter who went to bed early when we wanted to prepare anything in the kitchen. The other downside was that it was June and very chilly. We asked... More

Best family holiday we had in Durban. Our children 8 and 13 enjoyed the freedom in the hotel, made friends with other children within the hotel. We felt safe as the staff was friendly, visible security and cameras throughout the building. It felt like a real resort atmosphere. Great evening entertainment also. Beach on your doorstep and safe swimming in... More

This is a resort in a great location on the Umhlanga Beachfront with really friendly staff and a beautiful natural environment. Semi self-catering rooms with lovely sea-views and decent enough layouts. Not my first stay here and definitely not my last!
