My Husband and I had a wonderful break at Umngazi, there is so much to do, we went canoing, its wonderful as its a double canoe. We walked through the valley to flat rock what a wonderful walk. The boat ferries you back and forward to the beach all day, just love the gong you hit to call the boat... More

from the time we arrived we were treated very well. and i cannot fault the service we received. I love the fact that there are activities arranged for the little ones and you dont keep trying to entertain them. All round it is good for the whole family

What an AWESOME place! Slept like an angel, ate like kings, met fabulous people and made new friends. The beauty & tranquility was so good you did not feel guilty about sitting still and soaking it in

We knew that we were in the Eastern Cape, but we were not prepared the the bad service that we came across at Umngazi !!!If I were the owner(s), I would be very worried. I will recommend everybody to ignore Umngazi, and find something more customer friendly !!

The lady who cleaned our room accidentally picked up my bikini bottom with the laundry but failed to return it. This led to extra costs for us. Nobody seemed too interested in finding them either. I had special dietary requests but the chefs overlooked the request however they offered some delicious almond bread for breakfast towards the end of our... More

We have being going to Umngazi since 1952 and absolutely love the place. It was at the beginning a real fishermans paradise but as time has progressed it is now a very good family holiday destination with good service,good food and very good accommodation. It is my 23rd time I have been to Umngazi and will keep going.

What a lovely little secret right here in SA! Who needs an overseas beach destination with Umngazi around. Amazing views, wonderful food and such a kids friendly place. The nannies helped so much, we could have our meals in peace whilst our kids had fun. and then we had fun with the kids - snowboarding, canoeing, fishing, afternoon boat cruises,... More

Having been to Umngazi for the last 10 years it never disapoints. What a wonderful place to kick back and relax with great food and friendly staff.The best part for me is never having to get back into your car once you arrive. I,m a keen Mountain biker and this place is certainly MTB Heaven

Umngazi is amazing, from the location to the food to the staff and everything else! We loved our time there. After being disappointed by many other so called child friendly hotels, we were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived at beautiful Umngazi. To sum it up and in the words of my 4 year old son, 'Mom I've organized... More

My husband & I arrived at Umngazi - all frazzled & stressed out - with one purpose in mind only.. TO RELAX!!! We spent the most amazing 4 days doing just that - from an amazing couples massage & spa bath to romantic walks on the beach to lazing around the pool with friends. Thanks Umngazi!!
