Had a great breakfast, unfortunately the staff weren't aware of our reservation and it was a special day for us.. I could see the table had been set up with rose petals but we didn't get to enjoy it as the waitron wasn't clear who the table was for and so it was offered to other people. Anyhow, we had... More

Cannot say enough good things about this hotel! Beautiful hotel, incredible setting, great staff, world class food, and amazing spa! We had a 3 night stay after our wedding, and loved every second of it.

We recently spent a six night stay at Canelands which was the last week of a three week stay in KZN. We wanted to spend our last few days relaxing in the sun by the sea and Canelands fitted the bill perfectly. Everyone at Canelands from the general manager Christine down, were always happy, smiling and attentive and nothing really... More

Spectacular sea view. The positioning so close to the beach is world class. The covered patio overlooking the sea and the 25m long pool are special. The staff were friendly and attentive always ready to assist. Overall a pleasant and restful stay.

Canelands is probably the nicest venue in the area. Period. A boutique hotel with only 10 rooms, we booked the entire venue to host our second wedding. The rooms are lovely, each with a balcony/patio to enjoy the outdoors. Of course the rooms facing the ocean are phenomenal! An enormous deck overlooking the infinity pool and the beach, where we...

We had a two night stay at the Canelands Beach Club. Rooms are clean, Staff is friendly. Also well positionned. Pity about TV which only had two channels and the room which was not sound proof. The noises from restaurant downstairs and glass trash outside didn't make our sleep peaceful at all.

We had an unfortunate arrival, which co-incided with an enebriated TV crew trying to leave the hotel. There is no discernible reception desk, in fact, when turning away from the entrancing ocean view, one faces the kitchen sink. It is a home turned into a little hide-away. The workmanship is a bit shoddy all over, but shouldn't detract from a... More

Dear Andrea Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review about our "little Jewel on the North Coast".
