Located in a superb spot right on the ocean walkway and recently refurbished, the resort is superbly presented from the public areas to the pools, gardens and guest suites. Although essentially a timeshare resort with self catering suites ranging from two to eight sleeper, we booked a rental visit directly with the resort. Our "Terrace" room was immaculate with a...

Other than the reception desk not accommodating my family to a higher floor as requested, we had to settle for room 231 from room 131 (ground floor). My kids didn't like the view that much but .................... ! Overall the resort is great for a family vacation especially with kids. Great beach resort just to sum it up.

We were welcomed by the friendly staff and immediately made to feel at home. The weekly activity guide is brilliant as you can choose just how involved you would like to be. We attended a couple of yoga classes, the reptile show, the golf competition at the pool and the family braai - all wonderful! We were 4 adults and... More

We've often stayed at Cabana Beach - and in the 2-sleeper units in particular. They're a real "best kept secret", boasting a position almost on the elegant Umhlanga promenade and in the Indian Ocean waves - all for a song! The accomodation is first-class, with a king size bed, crisp linen, lots of space, a patio with a view to... More

Cabana Beach has one of the best positions in Umhlanga, being just above the bathing beach/lifeguard tower. We love to lie on the lounger at the adult poolside & gaze out over the beach to sea, a most beautiful view.

Our previous stays were always marred by the lack of free WiFi in the rooms and spoilt our visits having to sit in a public foyer to do so. This year they have extended the WiFi service to the rooms. Good on them. We'll be back
