2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

we booked 3 rooms, all with balcony via booking.com for 3 nights
when we arrived we were assigned to 3 rooms but only 2 with balcony. had to insist and show bookings to get the 3 rooms we booked
the lady at the reception asked us what we want for breakfast but the order didn't match what was delivered. everything was very confused.
when leaving we forgot a large box (closed and sealed) of chocolate in the fridge of one of the rooms. we called 2 hours after departure, telling to keep it and that we will pick it up later when we are back in Umshlanga, which was agreed. when we returned we were told they didn't find anything (!) that made us very angry.
the room are ok, but the windows have only very thin curtains which makes impossible to keep some darkness in the romm in the morning. the bathrooms amenities are almost inexistant.
the staff was mostly nice though and the 2 buildings look pretty

most BB's have now free wifi which is not the case at Sandy Ridge's

to make it short, it was not terrible but wouldn't go back.
