The refurbished rooms and facilities are really lovely and contemporary. The air con is such an improvement and the big Sony flat screen tvs are very welcome.
The whole place is beautifully maintained and the restaurants including the new Wimpy are just right. Maritimo's extended decking is lovely and the lamb curry amazing. We had it four times in two weeks.
The adult pool is perfect with Sungood manning the sun beds and umbrellas. The entertainment led by Iain and his team is excellent and Clement does the valuable job of dispensing wine
Ron, the General Manager circulates regularly and has a word for everyone.
I can't think of one downside to this resort!

There is great options for adults and children. Resort is right on beach and close to many restaurants and shops. Ask for a room at least on level three or higher to ensure a sea view. Very helpful staff.

With comfortable and well equipped rooms, friendly staff and a tropical environment, Cabana Beach must rate as one of the best value for money resorts that the Dolphin Coast has to offer. We have been holidaying at Cabana Beach for many years and it only gets better.

Great resort and the revamp has been brilliant. Rooms are a huge improvement. General maintenance is good.All the resturants let the side down... Woolworths meals are better. Best location bathing beach wise.

The setting over looking the Indian Ocean, the tropical gardens, ageless architecture, five star rooms and service along with location and leisure activities put this beach resort amongst the top in the world.....take this from a seasoned traveler.

I have visited this resort through timeshare every year for the past 27 years and this is the first year that I am unable to give each rating an excellent one and the only reason is that I am so used to such excellent service that the few issues I did have were small. I know that this is not the norm, and would always recommend Cabana Beach for an absolutely out of this world holiday.
