A Wonderful week's holiday at Cabana Beach. My father, here from Wales, was beaming from ear to ear the whole holiday. He was impressed with the smiling staff members of Cabana Beach and the entertainment laid on by Iain, James and the rest of the entertainment staff at the hotel. On a general note, my father was delighted to be... More

My stay at this resort was an extremely wonderful experience especially when I compare it to other resorts I have visited in the last few years. It was close to the gateway shopping mall with some amazing restaurants. You were actually spoilt for choice. You were not too far away from the sun coast casino. The resort itself was amazing....

Took my two grandsons and sister for a break to Cabana beach resort. Boys 5 and 8years were fully entertained all day-special thanks to James and other staff for entertainment. Rooms spotlessly clean and pool lovely-felt like we were the first people to stay there!. All areas clean and tidy with well kept gardens. Will be back as usual

Cabana Beach resort is well located in Umhlanga. Easy walking distance to the beach and shops and restaurants. The resort well-maintained, rooms are clean and have everything you need. There is an entertainment programme for the kids, even in the off-peak season. The children's pool is warm and inviting. Kids had a lovely time.

We have just returned form a 2 week stay at Cabana Beach resort and we do not share the roaring reviews from the other guests. Issue 1: Our unit was poorly cleaned i.e. half washed dishes, toilets NOT cleaned (for 2 weeks), no wipe down of coffee tables etc. We did report this to management on various occasions, who said...

We are timeshare owners at Cabana Beach Resort and for 17 years me and my husband agree this is the best place to be. Umhlanga is a wonderful town. Everything you need is here. Cabanas is situated on the main beach. We walk on the 4.6km paved promenade next to the sea. We swim in the sea or swimmingpools at... More

Great location, close to beach and Umhlanga town for restaurants and bars. Walking or running along the well maintained promenade next to the coast line is great. Good for families with young children as well as for adults. The rooms are nice as they have just been revamped although the resort has declined over the years in my view. The... More

Room was excellent, loved the position and proximity to the adult pool. Pool staff are very helpful providing umbrellas and loungers. The resort is spotless and has been our favourtie holiday resort for the last 30 years.Location is perfect, so close to the beach and close enough to the shopping centre to walk there. Taking a walk along the promenade... More

Room service offering spoilt overall experience. After a long trip you expect to be able to order room service. The operational management seems to be lacking as restaurants close as and when they feel like it and not as indicated in brochure in rooms.

I have been fortunate to own a week at the Cabana Beach, Umhlanga Rocks, for 15yrs now. Before me, my parents owned 3 weeks there and it has always maintained it's standard of excellence in every way. I have NEVER yet been disappointed by any aspect of this world class resort and would recommend it without hesitation.
