We stayed in the top floor sea facing unit, for a great romantic weekend. The Facilities are great, the room is beautiful with lots of space and cupboards that go on forever. The bed is comfy and everything was spotlessly clean and modern. The bathroom is open plan, tastefully done and the balcony is spacious. The divider between our balcony... More

This place could be a stunning little gem. Instead it's far from that. Dirty. Old. Run down. Food is really bad. Lamb shanks that were very tough and cold mash. Staff more interested in watching football on TV rather than serving guests. Waited 20 mins for a drink this evening then told there was no stock. When I questioned this... More

We booked out the entire hotel for friends and family. The staff are wonderful. Service was great and nothing is too much for the staff. Sea facing rooms are a must. Hitting the pool after being on the beach and being served cocktails .. Nothing wrong. Rooms are large and this is the perfect romantic hideaway. Can only say good... More

We enjoyed the place event though the weather was not the greatest, thanks to the beautiful place and the warm welcoming. Good place to rest after a long tour in Drakensberg and to prepare the rest of the trip. Holta & Delphine

Beautifully positioned on the beach with a stunning pool deck. Watch dolphins and whales if your lucky. Meals are fantastic with the resident chef very obliging to cater to your needs. Curries are fantastic, and they even prepare braai's (BBQ). Try the calamari - excellent. Breakfast is more than adequate. The rooms are superb, especially the sea facing as you... More

Just beautiful! Upon check in on a very hot day we are given ice cold berry juice. Nice! Breathtaking views from our seaview room. The restaurant serves delicious meals. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Definitely coming back again.

We visited Canelands as a stop-over from the airport in Durban, before departing the next day to the Drakensberg region. For this purpose, it was really fine but we were expecting more having had a good look at the website beforehand. Here a few positives and negatives of our stay: *Near to the airport Yes, the drive is only about... More

We absolutely loved our couple of days here. With stunning views over the ocean, this hotel was welcoming and beautifully designed. We loved our dinners in the restaurant - their curry of the day is a must! The food really was fantastic and the views from our room so beautiful. We enjoyed some massages in the spa and genuinely didn't... More

We spent 2 nights at Canelands and were pleasantly surprised. The Hotel is right on the beach, very clean and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was excellent. We couldn't get a sea view room and unfortunately had a view of the parking lot but this was not entirely bad. there is a very nice German pub and restaurant right across... More
