Great Location and such a relaxed atmosphere . With a view of the ocean and the sounds of waves breaking you can wake up happy each day. Swimming pool and BBQ facilities and great cleaning service . A very short walk to the beach with a choice of sea or lagoon swimming . Found a local laundromat around the corner...

Spending a few nights at Driftsands was like "being at home - away from home". There is every facility you will need for a comfortable stay. We tremendously enjoyed our stay and we will definitely return with the entire family. The sea views directly from the bed is a bonus and is extremely relaxing. We felt the nights went by...

Our Driftsands stay was amazing. A really beautiful unit with a stunning sea view. The pool area was so clean and a very good place to have a braai. The staff were friendly and professional. We will definitely be back next year

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We appreciate your comments. Being situated as close to the sea as we are, anything metallic rusts very quickly. Stove plates are rubbed with Vaseline to slow down the process. Our Wifi is only available at the hot spot at the office. We are investigating expanding the signal, but...

Our stay at Driftsands was a memorable one. We had plenty of privacy. No noise. Excellent service and the brochure/ file that explains all the rules and regulations is excellent. Emergency numbers are put up in sight, just in case. The flat was well equipped to suite all our needs. I would recommend Driftsands to all my friends. We felt...

We enjoyed our stay but I feel that the flat could do with a bit of sprucing up. Needs a coat of paint and the furniture could be a bit more comfortable. The night frill on the double bed was also needing a wash.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to submit this review. All the units in the complex are individually owned, and we are aware that certain units are in need of refurbishment. We have requested the owners of these units to fix them up. They are aware that investment is needed, but unfortunately cannot afford to invest at this...

I stayed with my family at Driftsands the week before Easter. We had a 6 sleeper, sea facing apartment, with some old furniture but clean and comfortable. The beach is a short walk from the apartment and we considered it the best around, as others were either too crowded or too rough. We tried a few restaurants in the region,...
