Super friendly and helpful staff. 4 sleeper room is new, clean and well equipped with new fridge, microwave and cutlery. Very spacious room and beautiful view of the ocean. Entertainment for kids is excellent and all staff including restaurants are most accommodating and helpful. Excellent value for money.

Overall excellent resort, rooms and value for money. Decorating elegant and suitably understated for a seaside resort. Sleep quality outstanding. Also fantastic location, easy walking distance from shops and quite a choice of restaurants. Cleanliness and service very good.

I have been visiting Umhlanga Sands resort for about 20 years. After a gap of about 10 years I, sadly, found the hotel to be needing a bit of TLC. The grounds, however, were perfectly maintained & it was refreshing to have no high walls & fences surrounding us. Most importantly 'though, were the stunning sea views & beautiful walks... More

We loved the view and the weather and the fact that we were so near the beach and the villiage of Umhlanga as well as the wonderful area along the beach for walking and jogging. The service at reception was excellent as well as the cleaning service for the rooms. We were however disappointed with the size of the apartment... More

Although I live in East London, South Africa, a wonderful coastal City with marvellous beaches and Golf Courses, it is always a delight to make my annual visit to THE SANDS. They continue to replace and upgrade in all spheres of the hotel. As a consequence your every need is catered for. This trip is no exception. The Manager has... More

This hotel has been renovated recently which is good. The rooms are nice. The staff friendly but not very organised. There was a problem with our booking on check in which took a long time to sort out. It's very crowded in the hotel. Try to get a high up room as the lower ones can be noisy. Location is... More

My husband and I traded our timeshare for South Africa this year and stayed at Umlanga Sands. The resort itself is very well situated near the Village with many restaurants , a Pic and Pay and a little more shopping. The beach is beautiful and there were many surfers there. I wasn't sure it was a very good swimming area... More

This hotel is among the best I have stayed in. We were on the 14th floor which meant we had a fantastic view. All the facilities are available and the Restaurants are adequate. The Security is good enough to feel comfortable and relaxed. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.
