Enjoyed a beautiful room with killer view on the 16th floor with my wife and girls (aged 3 & 7) So much to do everyday and well located close to gateway without being too close to the madness that Durban can be, resort is right on the shoreline that is not overpopulated although not ideal for swimming with the rocks...

Perfect hotel for families. Rooms are 5/5 and perfectly suited for a family of three or four. You have a choice of either Spur or Maestro restaurants in the hotel. Spur food was okay, but not great. Opt for Maestro rather, especially for room service. We found the music from the pool area to be too loud for too long... More

This was our third stay at the resort and whilst it is clearly family orientated, we as two slightly mature holiday makers find it still a great place to come. It is safe, clean and welcoming. The beds are really comfortable and the refurnished bathrooms smart. Great maid service... we don't eat there (as UK tourists we benefit from a... More

We enjoyed our stay during February at Umhlanga Sands. This vibrant resort has lots of entertainment during the day and early evenings. The in house restaurants are convenient and offered good meals. Fantastic ocean views from all rooms and pool areas make this resort a must visit

Overall a very pleasant experience and very safe. Entertainment at Coco's needs to be reinvigorated and the service at the bar/restaurant needs to be more jacked up. Sound quality at the pool is not very good, especially for quiz.

If you're a smoker this is paradise. If you want to crash the residents only areas this is paradise. If you want to get drunk in the bar this is paradise. Management what management. The laundry machines don't work either. Security what security, never saw any in a week.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Umglanga Sands in early January. We had a 6 sleeper unit on the 8th floor and the view is just amazing - 180 degree Panoramic! The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Activities arranged by the hotel were great and the food at restaurants in the hotel was also good.... More
