An holiday to delight. After a very friendly welcome, we were shown our clean, comfortable, fully equipped unit. A holiday where you have the best of both worlds on tap. Room service, self catering, or top class restaurants on site, a view to die for, sheltered swimming areas and as always "The kid is King" ,all make up the perfect... More

We travel to this resort each year and absolutely love it. It is a well appointed resort with a lovely family pool where we spend most of our days if not at the beach. The children love it and their entertainment program is wonderful too. Until our next holiday!

This was a great place to stay, but don't come here during winter as the Aircon will be turned off. Durban gets muggy and hot even in winter, would have been nice to have the facility. Maintenance and Reception were friendly but unable to help me in this regard, although reception did provide a fan which did help.

The rooms have been beautifully refurbished since our last visit and the self catering facilities are great. It is situated right on the beach front overlooking Granny's pool and access to a wonderfully long promenade is just a few steps away. A walk up to "The Village" takes 5 minutes and there is an array of excellent restaurants, coffee shops... More

What a beautifully appointed and run resort. The position is perfect, close to the beach, shopping area and other great hotels and restaurants. One couldn't ask for more in a holiday destination. The staff is efficient and friendly. Management is always visible and concerned with the guests well being. Our family favourite place to be!

Our stay was a delightful one throughout, my friend (guest) from Denmark is totally in love with Cabana Beach and Umhlanga Rocks. To my mind still the prettiest resort on the north coast (if not anywhere in the world) by far! The best money I ever spent, when I purchased timeshare at Cabana Beach during the 1980's. Will go again... More

My husband and I come to the resort twice a year and are never disappointed, the best part is that there is a separate adult pool, so it is relaxing and quiet for those that don't have children. Staff always helpful and friendly.

We had a four sleeper penthouse that was perfect with a balcony overlooking the sea and swimming pools.The service was great and the main swimming beach is a stones throw from the hotel.The restaurants on the property are fantastic with delicious seafood that were not too expensive.All in all a great family hotel.
