Excellent Place for the family, we had a wonderful time and the reception was very warm. I will recommend for most families. The owners spend time to know about the customers needs, which is more than you will need as a guest.

Only a short distance from Durban, amazing tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Comfortable accommodation. Definitely the place you'd want to be at for complete relaxation. Stunning sea views, nice rock pool. Helpful and friendly staff.

The staff at the Sugar Beach welcomed us like family. They were accommodating and friendly and it really was so comfortable and clean. Nevermind the beauty of the scenery. It is private and great value for money!
